I’m a moody weather hiker. Sunshine is great, but fog and clouds creeping in is even better. It was in the teens this day. I also did have the toddler in tow. Cold weather doesn’t stop us from getting out. There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing. OK, the toddler won’t stand for heavy winds. That’s a dealbreaker. #littlecottonwoodcanyon #whitepinetrail #wasatchmountains
Skiing with my family today caused me to think back to all the hard work it was to get my 2 and 3 year old skiing. My husband was in graduate school, but I was determined. We took them up together the first time (for as long as it was fun for them). 3 hours later, in 15 degree weather, they were finally ready to go. It was a great day. ▫️▫️▫️ After that, I took them both up by myself every Friday. For the next 12 years, I put my own skiing on the back burner to teach my 3 boys. ▫️▫️▫️ Today, we skied together. The boys were passing me and waiting on me. We were laughing and enjoying the fun as a family. ▫️▫️▫️ Next time you wonder if it is worth the effort to teach your kids something you love, remember that in the end, it is worth it. ▫️▫️▫️ Seeing them share a love of something I love is worth the frustration, finding the gear, hauling it by myself while trying to hold the hands of my babies, worth the fear that I won't catch them if they accidentally take off and worrying I won't be able to get them both on the lift safely. Seeing them smile and laugh and have fun I remember, it is worth the effort I put in. ▫️▫️▫️ ▶️ What have you taught or what do you hope to teach your kids? ▫️▫️▫️ . . . #skiing #skiutah #utahlife #visitutah #skithedifference #skiseason #skiday #skiingday #familyfuntime #familyfun #familytravel #travel #deervalley #deervalleyresort #wasatchmountains #parkcity #parkcityutah
Today was day 2 of my Level 1 Avalanche Course. We did a lot of digging, we did some skinning, and we were always learning. I feel better prepared and more confident to navigate the backcountry after today’s class. Thank you to our fantastic instructors for making it both fun and informative. I’m excited to see what tomorrow will bring. 👊🏻
I have a million pictures on my phone from my day at @brightonresort on Wednesday so I figured I better do a few paintings this weekend. Still working on a few commissions that I’ll probably post after Christmas 🙂 . . #watercolor #watercolorlandscape #painting #commissionart #portrait #ski #skiutah #utah #slopes #snowboarding #skilift #snow #winter #brightonresort #parkcity #canyon #wasatchmountains
@mattaleslie working that transition. 👌,⛷️
Well... the sun has set on the last day of the extended archery season here in Utah for elk. It was a blast chasing these critters around. Glad they have a little down time now though, they need it. I gain more and more respect for them each time I go out! It won’t be long until we’re scooping up their head gear!🤘🏼 @scopecamadapter @tinesup #bowhunting #lateseason #exomountaingear #humphriesarchery #wasatchmountains #steepterrain #memories #elk #wapiti #kuiu #respect #passion #courage #adventure #explore

The mountains are good for the soul. They have a way of reminding us how small and fragile we really are!!!
Day 6: Happy belated #internationalmountainday to one of my favorite mountains. Thanks for giving us WOODER so we can live here and slide down your slopes! (Vertical: 31,304 vertical and season total 168,872)

What is it about winter clouds?  Is it just me or are they always more amazing than in the summer? There has to be some explanation for it, cold weather does something that makes for fantastic shapes... As long as you dress warm enough to get out and see them.
Just a dog-friendly post for this Saturday afternoon. 😍 . Pic 1: The boys in their element. . Pic 2: Sitting pretty! . Pic 3: The boys, the Wasatch, and me! . Pic 4: Running into the sunset.

Back Country skiing in Cardiff Fork today with good friends. Blue sky’s, good snow and trashed leg muscles. #ski #skiing 🎿 #wasatchmountains #wasatch #wasatchfront #wasatchpeakbaggers #backcountryski #skitour #skitouring #saturday
Waking up at 4am ain’t easy but views like this make it worth it every time.
Bluebird day in the #wasatchmountains . My good friend @ed.mule making telemark skiing look easy. Put on some sunblock and minimize your layers, it’s warm out! #utah #utahisrad #werutah #skiing #earnyourturns #backcountry #wasatchmountains #wander #adventure #optoutside #powder @americanadventurist @ed.mule @visitutah @werutah

The 750's turn 😆. What color chain do you think would look better, blue or fluorescent yellow?? #suzuki #gsxr #gsxr600 #gsxr750 #gsxrgram #bikelife #gsxrnation #mtbiker801 #utah #instautah #utahisrad #jardine #snow #wasatchmountains
Played a little more today with the drone. #djispark #dji #winter #causey #wasatchmountains
Fresh turns and plenty of laughs w/ @thepandolphin & @ashleymorgana ! Ditched the resorts today for some quiet mountain time that led into quite an adventure! 👯‍♀️
Snowshoeing is the ultimate lesson in patience because it takes twice as long and twice the effort to get to a peak you could've easily done and then passed on your way to the next in regular hiking season. I am not good with patience... but I like mountains. Also, it may have been short (Circle All) but I'm proud to say I'm still peakbagging in the middle of December. 😊 . . #hike #winterhiking #snowshoe #snow #trail #sweat #mountains #weekend #wasatchmountains #hikethewasatch #peak #utahgram #werutah #utahdotcom #saltlakecity #bigcottonwoodcanyon #lifelevated #exploremore #choosemountains #getoutstayout #sharetheexperience #optoutside #utahpeakbaggers
7k of postholing! I may not have had any PR’s during today’s race, but it was SO fun, beautiful, and challenging!! . . . . #trailrunning #ultrarunning #wmwranglers #utahisrad #wasatchmountains #trailandultra #trailsisters #hikeutah #beUTAHful #running #runnerscommunity #nordicvalley #winterwonderland #outrunthedark #igutah #getoutside

Although I currently live in a warmer climate, I certainly remember living in cooler places. Both beautiful and as well as a bit chilly. This was my “office” view for 17 months. Half of time, it was topped with snow... . . . . . . #winterwonderland #snow ❄️ #skiing 🎿 #deervalley #snowland #snowmountain #parkcity #parkcityutah #parkcitylife #stregisdeervalley #stregis #cold#beautifulmountain #downhillskiing #hotcocoa #apresski #viewfromtheoffice #wanderland #exploreyourworld #seenewplaces #seetheworld 🌍 #notallthosewhowanderarelost #wasatchmountains #summitcounty #winterphotography #utahwinter
Been feeling a bit under the weather the last few days, so taking a couple days to rest my legs and body.

Early morning light was just right for this shot. 📷
Feeling like jumping extra high today, lifted by the love of 1K instafriends!! THANK YOU all for tagging along 🐾♥️ • #leonberger #leonbergersofinstagram #leonbergerlovers #utah #wasatchmountains #alpineloop

Fun tour in Big Cottonwood Canyon this morning. #dawnpatrol skiing on a Saturday has its perks. Had the mountains to ourselves. Found some good snow. Passed a gizillion people heading up as we were on the way out. Get it while you can!! Good company this morning @danhall9916 @bapeterson70 #skiuphill #skitouring #backcountry #wasatchmountains
My two goals this morning: don’t roll my ankle a common occurrence 😰& run nonstop to the base. Check & check! #grandeurpeak #wasatchmountains #trailrunning #saltlakecity #millcreekcanyon #winterrunning
We hit up Bell Canyon Reservoir again on Friday morning. The sun was out and it was really beautiful. We are trying to get as much hiking in before the inversion comes back, then we’ll have to head up into the higher canyons to escape.
Beautiful morning for some XC skiing with #bigmanaspen we love living up here! #xcskiing #goldenretriever #wasatchmountains #parkcity #lifeelevated
