Winter is in full force - March 2010


Winter is in full force.... Powder days.... Avalanche courses.. Skiing with Wyatt!!!! Backcountry ski trips... and cool Workshops for my Industry friends.... Check out the flyer.

I've got one more avalanche course in Shasta with a few spots left. It is an AIARE Level I. March 19-21. Contact me asap if you are interested.

I'll also continue doing Backcountry Ski tours in the Tahoe area well into April & May. These backcountry ski days may include skills sessions, peak ascents, or just harvesting the stellar spring corn snow. Contact me directly or the North American Ski Training Center for details.

In the Spring I'll be guiding a bunch of ski mountaineering trips for Shasta Mountain Guides. Conditions should be great right thru June. Consider my three day climb & ski of Mt. Shasta, May 14-16. This is a classic spring adventure that still has spots available.

I'll also be guiding various ski descents in the High Sierra for California Alpine Guides. e-mail me for information about our April 16-18 ski mountaineering trip in the Sawtooth Range. It should be epic!

In June (and possibly July) I'll be guiding for Alpine Ascents International up on Mt. Rainier again. The classic Disappointment Cleaver route is pretty amazing. I'm always psyched to get up there and climb that massive peak. The three day climb is often sold out by January..... Consider getting on the wait list or reserving your spot in the Fall for a spring ascent!
