One of the most useful realizations I’ve had regarding my time spent in the mountains is this: they are the tool not the answer. For years, dare I say decades, craggy peaks and endless snow fields have brought me joy, relief and provoked creative thought and ideas. These experiences bring me essentially closer to myself. I recently began looking for answers in the mountains and have attempted to use the vast space and quiet times to reflect on my life and find solutions to my problems. That’s just it though, I am the one with the answers and the mountains are not the only place to find them. I still see nature as my greatest source of inspiration. However running away to the mountains every time “life-happens” isn’t exactly healthy. The mountains are a tool, and a useful one at that, to clear the mind or brainstorm up the next big project. That distinction between tool and source has given me a bit of new breath. You are he ultimate tool with all the answers. Let the mountains, or wherever you find peace, be the tunnel in which you dig deeper into your own being. #voiceofthemountains #fischerfreeski #julbo #fueledbyprobar #teamnuun #zinkalifestyle #adventure #pnwonderland #skiwashington #cascadevolcanoes #live #life #dreambig #bigmountaindteams #mountrainier #outdoorwomen #womenwhoski #womenwhoclimb #chickswithpicks #metoo
What month is it? Would you rather have cold, foggy, rain/snow weather or the 💯 degrees Fahrenheit forecasted tomorrow? 📸: @liodp
Shameless summer solstice solo summit selfie. Started the new season off right with a ski down the east peak of Mt. Daniel. Route finding on the ascent was brutal but the ski was so great that I'll probably forget and end up doing it again 🤔
Hours and hours of uphill slog for a 5 minute descent. Conditions were near perfect up on Colchuck Glacier and we wouldn't have it any other way. Thanks to @justthatiff
for the spontaneity and to @seegorio
for pulling an all nighter driving from Bainbridge for this. Fantastic day with even better ski partners!
What a weekend! Congrats to everyone who finished the Ski2Sea relay race!! This shot was taken quickly on my IPhone up Baker during the 'Downhill Ski' leg. Forgot how competitive I was until I had my freshly waxed board in hand, climbing the 1000ft in slush snow with 360 other people racing to the finish. Haven't competed in hikes before so definitely surprised myself with basically running the uphill to try and pass all these ski guys, so fun 😆 My teammates also killed it - for our first time with basically no training we finished in 8:40 and placed 109/361 overall! Can't wait for next year! ⛷
Happy Friday everyone!! Hope y’all have a wonderful holiday weekend spent with friends, family, things we love 🙂 I’ll be up north at Baker in the Ski2sea race! We’ll be racing with skis, bikes, kayaks, canoes, etc from mountains to the coast. Can’t wait to see how this race plays out 😂🏂🚴🏼♂️🚣♀️❄️
Crevasses are no joke! I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn about them from others who are passionate about the outdoors at the @mountaineersorg
! From my glacier skiing and crevasse rescue course, I learned about crevasses, how and why they form, how to navigate through a field of them, how to rope up and belay, how to self arrest with skis on and also with boots and an ice ax, how to use prusik knots and cord form tools that allow me to ascend a vertical rope, rescue systems using pulleys to provide mechanical advantage for pulling others out of a crevasse, including the z pulley, c pulley, and Canadian drop loop, and most importantly, I got the opportunity to run through this in a real life scenario, putting my life in the hands of my teammates while taking a mock fall into a crevasse. I highly recommend a course like this for anyone wanting to venture out into glaciated terrain! We also got a reinforcement on avalanche awareness by observing several skier triggered wet loose avalanches throughout the day. I’m glad to be equipped with the helpful skills, enabling me to ski tour further in and higher up, but most importantly, I have a new level of respect for glaciers and crevasses. Thanks again to all my awesome instructors at the mountaineers! .

Jill earned her turns today for the first time!!! George had more fun on the uphill! #dps #skiwashington
It was on our bucket list to ski Mt. Snoqualmie's #SlotCouloir
this season. Never quite got around to it until this morning.. Spring conditions made for a tough boot pack but super fun ski. Better late than never!
Glacier skiing and Crevasse Rescue field trip with the mountaineers! The @mountaineersorg
is such an amazing organization! This class was taught by a group of volunteers who have been doing the class together for years. So cool to see people dedicated to helping teach others. Lesson 1: Crevasses are no joke.
