Definitely scared, very scared in this one, my face says it all haha. Nothing like a 150 foot free rappel at sunset through an arch with good company to kick off a trip to the desert and get a little adrenaline kick. Turns out this climbing thing is actually really fun πŸ€—PC @smash_ski @livinlarge4life #holdmybeerandwatchthis #jk #safetysquad
Pretty sure the value of my bike has now exceeded the value of my car. Guess that means I’m really making it as a real ski bum these days πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ #whatiwanttobewhenigrowup #skibumgoals #whoneedsabumperanyway #offroadpackage

Was it the most epic pow day, certainly not. Did we hit many rocks, certainly. Did we have a 10/10 day skiing on October 11th for Mere’s Bday, frick yaaa! #day1
Happiest of birthdays to this badass babe @meredithdrangin When it comes to adventure buddies you are the Lucy to my Ethel, the Keenan to my Kel, the Mary-Kate to my Ashley, you get the point! So lucky to have you in my life, let’s keep saying yes to all the crazy outdoor adventures for years to come! I know this birthday will be one to remember! ❄️⛷⛷ #snowythirty
There is just something oh so special about that first snow #keepitcoming
Happiest of birthdays to this amazing gal! @smash_ski Whether we are sufferfesting on top of a mountain, sharing a brew at 6th Alley, or taking the dumbest photos the world has ever seen you make it the most fun! So glad we ended up on the same skin track a year ago! Life and skiing wouldn’t be the same without ya! πŸ’•πŸŽ‰β„οΈπŸΆ #HBD #allthefrose

And that’s a wrap on the 2017/2018 ski season for me! Despite the lack of snow there was no shortage of good times or turns made. A goal I had last season was to get 100,000 human powered vertical feet, I only ended up with 83,000 feet but hey it got me up and out WAY more than ever before. Cheers to a stellar 107 days of year round-skiing made better by great company. Thanks to all ma friends who make skiing fun! Can’t wait for another great year and fingers crossed more snow! πŸ™β„οΈπŸ™β„οΈπŸ™β„οΈ PC @smash_ski #cheesy #uphillskiingishard #numbersnerd
Never thought I’d ski twice in the month of September but here we were walking 10+ miles with heavy packs on in pursuit of the elusive fall turn and Meredith’s month 12! A great day, with great company; and always a lesson to be learned from a day in the mountains. Plan A (as seen in #3 ) looked like it would be the most fun, steeper, less rocks, no runnels. Turns out it was a sheet of ice with no good way up and lots of active rock fall happening 😬. I think it’s so healthy to listen to the signs that are saying β€œno” and figure out a plan B. So we did and plan B turned out to be pretty darn good for low snow year in late September. Best part is the next time we ski, it will hopefully be on some soft fresh snow. πŸ™@meredithdrangin @cjbivo #winteriscoming #turnsallyear #month24 #7 .79steaks
Old dog, workin on new tricks πŸ€ΈπŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€“ Fun day with @smash_ski @t.hanson77 #topropechampion
#tbt to exactly 3 years ago on top of Massive, pretty sure this was the moment I fell in love with β€œsufferfest” skiing. Not sure it was the thin air, the slap happy fatigue setting in from a 15 hour ski mission, or the zip lock bag full of leftover nachos that I was ready to devour but I was happy and totally hooked. Cheers to the old memories and to making new ones with friends who are just as kooky πŸ§‘πŸ’› #ireallyjustwentskiingforthenachos
While I haven’t accomplished many of the β€œlife milestones” that my peers have, I HAVE successfully captured two pups in the same frame while skiing -> #lifegoalsachieved πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸΎβ›·πŸΆ #goskiingwithyourfurfriends #wishingforwinterwednesday
Remember when you were a kid and rode bikes all day and at the end of the day you were so tired but so happy and ready to do it all again? Yep it’s that feeling. So lucky to have these girls and this sport where we can act like kids and play all day πŸ’›πŸ§‘πŸ–€ @turktwerkteam @_adventura_ #leafpeeping #2elk #justsaynotoadulting
This photo brings back all the memories of the snowy good times and makes me want to shout Happy Friday!!!! πŸ₯‚πŸΎβ›· * If ya want to get your party pants on during ski season check out @racysuits all suits 20% off if you order by Sept 29 :)
And not even two seconds later someone (not mentioning who πŸ™„) found a mud puddle up to his belly. Glad to have finally checked this place out. I generally avoid touristy locations but damn it is a beauty and I see why so many people come up here. Maybe hanging lake or the maroon bells next... but probably not πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
