A few things that excite me from summer outdoor retailer 2013


Cold Fusion, Mt. Timpanogos

For me, a lot of my motivation to ski a line comes from seeing it. What I love about living in the Wasatch is that there are so many skiable peaks that you can see from the city. You can scout your lines as you run errands. In the case of Cold Fusion, it was on a drive down the I-15 to a party at Sundance. The line looked perfect that day, and I couldn’t get it off my mind.


Caroline’s Couloir Project

This spring, I made a goal to ski all the 3 stars lines in “The Chuting Gallery.” I’ve had a trusty copy of this book since I was 16 and ever since I can remember, I’ve always craned my neck out the window on the drive up Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons to gawk at all the big chutes and mountaintops around.
