A short video from this week.. (plan once again being, to shoot and practice more video content)
A backcountry amplifier.
A convenient place to store your skins (you keep them warm, it's quick and efficient, and they serve as knee pads)
Useful Dynafit binding adjustments.
And a super simple rappel technique (the Dulfersitz). to follow later.

A good buddy of mine, a wildlife guru and upstanding Cooke City citizen, recently fell through a cornice and rode out a giant avalanche... Very good to hear he is OK!
It got me thinking about that fine line between confidence and humility (as it pertains to avalanches, and regularly skiing high level routes). How we manage hazards and risk.
One must be confident (ironclad) when decision making, yet very humble in regards to the bigger picture. Listen closely to the mountains.

One of the many wonderful things about ski guiding, are the opportunities you have to get to know amazing people. Recent clients Howie and Patti are as cool and interesting as they come.!
Thanks H & P.
