Book Research28 Feb 2017
Preparing for this book continues to prove that without those who have gone before me and done what I’m doing, I’d be lost. The amount of research and practical work has been staggering in it’s volume and complexity. How do I self-publish?Do I crowdfund the book?Where do I print the book?What…
Three Things28 Feb 2017
Shadows, light and a track.
Elemental27 Feb 2017
One enjoyable aspect of ski touring in the same area over and over again is that I get to witness the same landscape sculpted by the ever-changing weather. On this particular day it was a challenge to stand upright as the wind was whipping from behind me over towards Miller…
Healing27 Feb 2017
While not every day works out like I planned, this quote from John Burroughs is definitely my goal. Ski touring is where life seems to make the most sense to me.
Tiny and Alone26 Feb 2017
Being alone in the wild isn’t scary. I’m familiar with my surroundings and I’ve taken all the safety precautions necessary. It is where I am most at peace with myself and my life. The solitude provides a respite from the self-inflicted stress I allow in my life I love the feeling of…

Can a colour be magic? I certainly thought so as I gazed up in the sky.
UPTRACK/DOWN25 Feb 2017

Scale24 Feb 2017
As much as I enjoy finding the beauty in the littlest of things on the slopes I ski on, sometimes the view across the Bulkley Valley absolutely stops me in my tracks. On this particular day early in December it was 2:30 in the afternoon and the sun was about…
INVERSION24 Feb 2017
It’s such a cool feeling to be above the clouds. Quite often in the Bulkley Valley we have inversions where I’ll leave town under the grey cover of cloud, only to break through into blue sky as I get closer to the ski hill. This image typifies some of the…
The Littlest of Things23 Feb 2017
Of the many things I love about getting up on the mountain early in the morning, two of my favourite are the glow of the sun on the snow, and the details in the snow I stare in amazement as the rising sun changes the colour of the snow, highlighting…
Valley Glow23 Feb 2017
In addition to watching the snow change colour from the setting sun, another activity that always comes with a sense of awe and wonder is watching the sky change colour too. It’s almost magical to witness how the light interacts with the clouds to show off an ever-changing colour palette…
