Awesome last ski day of the season🌞 #springskiing #skiwashington #sunandsnow
Overnight with the boys. April 22/23 with no signs of spring. 10 inches of fresh snow the day before made for high risk avi conditions all weekend but sunday proved to be just fine for topping out on lobster claw. #skiwashington
I love the place that lets me do the things that I love. Happy 🌏 day! • • • • #earthday #bluebird #nature #keepitwild #alpental #skiwashington #spring #pnw #pnwonderland #adventure #westcoastbestcoast #explore
Morning storm clouds giving way to a beautiful day climbing Mt. St Helens.
Right after this picture was taken I bombed my way down my first ever blue! #dothingsthatmakeyouuncomfortable #topofthegondola #idontthinkillevergettiredofthisplace #skiwashington
How high is it? People frequently ask me about whatever peak we are discussing. I generally struggle to remember an elevation. I provide them something in the ballpark. Its easy to fixate on the numbers.... 8000m....20,200’....14,411’.... It’s a simple to understand metric. It’s peaks like this that remind me that numbers don’t matter. Just in case you need to know, it’s 6238’. @borealoutdoor @fitssock @catalystcase_ #skiwashington #mountains #snow #skiuphill #earnyourturns #avalanche #pnw
Great time at the Spring Splash Pond Skim @summitatsnoqualmie ! With @indicajones spinning the tunes! And an @aslanbrewing beer tent! What a great ski season! #summitatsnoqualmie #springskiing #snoqualmiepass #skiwashington #pondskim #beertent #dj #summitcentral #thepasslife #aslanbrewing
Finally crossed Tye Rock off the list. Solid end to the season @stevenspass !
One of my favorite views, mountains like this 😍 and there’s Ryan at the top for scale 😮🏔🏔
My first adaptive PNW winter has come to a close after a lot of learning, adapting, and growth. . . Although I didn't get to teach as many lessons as I may have liked, the lessons I did teach sure as heck reminded me why I enjoy working in this field so much. . . #adaptive #iamadaptive #biski #mountainman #stevenspass #adaptivesports #adaptiveskiing #skiwashington #skieverything #winterwonderland #abilityfirst #morealikethandifferent #tether #pnwonderland #change #adapt #bethechange #rei1440project #skiinstructorlife #teachersofinstagram #getout #outdoorwomen #choosemountains #thenwadventure #bestofnorthwest #thatpnwlife
Congrats to @themountainspeaks , who won the March @artistpointandshoot with this truly epic shot of Mt. Shuksan. Look for the final winner and fan favorite in our 2017-2018 @therealmtbakerskiarea season recap, going live on April 22nd.
Monday morning’s tour started out at the Alpental backcountry but shortly in we were turned around due to many visible slides and a rising temperature. We decided to play it safe and do a super quick up and down at summit west and were rewarded with smooth 🌽 turns at the bottom. #pnw #optoutside #timetoplay #northwestisbest #goatworthy #skiwashington #earnyourturns #skiwithdogs #pnwonderdogs #alpental #mountains #trees #springskiing #prayforsnow #supernorthwesty

"The sun is bright and the powder's bitchin." So long 17-18 season . #skiwashington #pnw #optoutside
A little late to the cross country ski season but Mae doesn’t mind! 😁 Stole this pup for the day to join me on the search for snow and learning how to xc ski, much easier having this one run with me the whole way 🐶⛷
Throwback to last Saturday, when it wasn’t raining everywhere... made it up to the crater rim on Mt. St. Helens! I learned a lot of good lessons, like taking an effective angle with ski crampons on hard steep snow, when to back off a skin track that traverses a ridge that is just too steep and exposed (at least for my risk tolerance), transitioning on a hard, smooth, steep slope (cut foot holds with your ax!), strap on crampons fall off of my ski boots pretty easily, communication on the trail is key, I’m much faster skinning than hiking if the snow is right, sometimes, skiing back to the boot path is the fastest way up, moleskin is essential, particularly if your friend just got new ski boots, and for me, the mountains are best experienced as an encounter with encompassing beauty, that you are swept up in, taking each step with a sense of curious adventure and discovery... a sense of competition can steal that away, so tell ya what @msayenko , I’ll just meet you at the top next time! :) haha. Good adventuring with you, man.
Spring break goals. #skiwashington
We’re flipping over the great deals in the shop right now! Don’t miss out on the end of #winter sale. ⛷: @carl_v_jonson
Because time spent taking good photos is time not spent shredding the gnar. #skiwashington #cascadesludge
Party at the top of Mount Helens Saturday!! Everyone celebrating a successful summit up 5600ft to this volcano! Quite the challenging hike. Had my snowboard strapped to my pack, and snowshoes with small crampons being all that held me to this icy mountain. There were many points where I was actually clinging on while wind passed and snow slid so I wouldn’t get blown away and roll back down 😅 The views at the top though and the long ride back down were sure worth it! 🏔❄️🏂
I love April... many people seem to think ski season is over. . . Yesterday’s 2 feet of light fluffy snow would beg to differ. . @fmcbrian dropping into the Cache. @borealoutdoor @fitssocks @catalystcase_ #aprilpowder #wapow #skiing #powderskiing #earnyourturns #skiuphill #skiwashington
With great powder comes great responsibility 😜⛷ #skiweekend #powder #skiwashington
Lunch in the mountains and dinner on the rooftop. I love having both! Now a night spent writing. . . #grateful #stevenspass #skiwashington #pacnw #washingtonstate #mountains #rooftop #springbreak #getoutside #goplay #exploretocreate #createdlife #creative #playallday #workallnight
Weekends filled with biking and skiing...Wenatchee Valley FOR.THE.WIN!
Super fun weekend ski touring with my favorite person and doggo in the tatoosh range (@mountrainiernps ) and then Alpental area. I love spring. . . . #pnw #optoutside #earnyourturns #backcountry #skinupskidown #pnwonderdogs #thisisliving #skiwashington #pnwonderland #mountains #supernorthwesty #cascadiaexplored
It’s officially spring touring weather 😎 so glad I finally made it out with @kjburt11
Skiing with the mountain man ⛰
Not letting a little bit of weather get in the way of our morning runs! #couplesthatskitogetherstaytogether #skiwashington
Ending the day with a #wcw . Here's to this strong, independent woman who don't need no man (but who keeps me around anyway). Thanks for surprise day trips, delicious dinners, and taking the time to love me daily.
Accidentally got some snow down my pants yesterday.
As ski season comes to a close this year, Kevin and I look back on one of our favorite days on the slopes this season. It was February 18, Warren Miller Day, and our first trip to @crystalmountain. What an epic day of turns on fresh powder! 🌬🌨⛷🏔 . . Follow the link in our bio to watch the entire video on YouTube, and turn that volume up!
Fresh snow, fresh lines, clear blue skies, and the crisp, quiet mountain with the often ‘woohooo!’ from someone skiing down in complete joy. One of the best can’t get any better than this days I’ve had 😍🌲❄️⛷
Powder for days. @crystalmountain might just be one of my favorite mountains now. #shredit
I might not have gotten 10k steps in this weekend, but I did get 20k vertical ft on my trip to Gnarnia. . #SundaysAreFerdaSlopes #pnwonderland #ski #skiwashington #crystalmountain #shredthegnar #HeyThereMountRainier
Happy girl.
My wild and free. The gypsy soul I admire so much. The calm to my storm and the silence amidst the chaos. The storm in the middle of the ocean that no aircraft carrier could ever stand a chance against. She is her own person that stands alone when she wants and stand out in any crowd. I am so lucky that I can say as we move through this journey in life...I got to watch YOU become YOU. You make everything beautiful. #theworldishers #thisisherjourney #letherlightshine #skiwashington #pnw #bluebirdpowpow #bbpp #themountainsarecalling #whenthemountainscall #getoutside #explorewashington #skibum #alliwannadoisski #itsadoggydogworld #wildandfree #calmtomystorm #gypsysoul #sheisherownperson
Tree hugger on tree hugger. That’s all. I love getting one on one time with my kids.

Not the path I expected her to take...so appropriate. This is her journey. Not mine. Thank you universe for the subtle reminders. This is hers. The world in in her hands. ❤️ #theworldishers #thisisherjourney #letherlightshine #skiwashington #pnw #bluebirdpowpow #bbpp #themountainsarecalling #whenthemountainscall #getoutside #explorewashington #skibum #alliwannadoisski
Today’s office was Crystal Mountain’s South Backcountry. Thanks to Ben Sahlin, who as capable wingman, quite literally took flight several times. #crystalmountain #backcountryskiing #earnyourturns #skiwashington
“What do you mean you won’t take me home...you have heated leather seats” Burton the mountain dog. Meanwhile the girlchild waits “patiently” for sweet Burt to move. How does one get back to the Monday grind after a weekend like this? #werkwerkwerk #skibumlife #justwannaski #thehorn #whitepass #skiwhitepass #skiwashington #getoutside #explore #explorethepnw #pnw #thisismylife #thisisus #snow #winterisntover #proof #springskiing #notreadyforwintertobeover #ishouldbeskiingrightnow #carveyourownlines #floatingonclouds #mountaindog #girlsbestfriend
Flashback to fun turns with friends on Saturday. #skiwithfriends #crystalmountainskiarea #powderturns #skinery #skiwashington
How does one get back to the Monday grind after a weekend like this? Got to spend the weekend camping out with the ones that make me smile the most and got to watch my girl get more comfortable carving her own lines in some cray trees. #werkwerkwerk #skibumlife #justwannaski #thehorn #whitepass #skiwhitepass #skiwashington #getoutside #explore #explorethepnw #pnw #thisismylife #thisisus #snow #winterisntover #proof #springskiing #notreadyforwintertobeover #ishouldbeskiingrightnow #carveyourownlines #floatingonclouds
