Its just about that time again……

The early season stoke and anticipation is upon us.  Another summer has come and gone, and now the white stuff is creeping down the peaks, once again laying down what is the foundation of winter for many.  With an early season snow pack beginning to build in several places, please remember to be safe out there this winter.  Early snow is exciting, but can also mean danger down the road.  For the first time in years I am enjoying fall and preparing for the season somewhere other than Teton Valley.  Though I miss the Tetons, I am really loving Alaska just the same and am looking forward to time spent this winter in both amazing places.  Having a chance to get more familiar with the mountains up here is something that many are able to just dream of, and I seriously cannot wait.  So with all that being said, here is a video I just put together to kick this season off!!!  Rendezvous is an edit of time spent at Mile 45 of the Richardson Highway this past spring and is dedicated to Theo Meiners (owner/founder of Alaska Rendezvous Heli-Ski Guides).  Enjoy and happy 2012-2013 season!!!!!!!!!!

GEAR HIGHLIGHT:

Marmot Freerider Jacket – High speeds, wind, and big temperature differentials the Freerider Jacket allowed me to keep warm, vent and cool off, and shielded the draft through it all.

2013 Volkl Shiro 193 – 50+degree slopes, over 3000 ft per shot, speeds upwards of 60 mph with Alaska Rendezvous Guides…..the Volkl Shiro 193 took everything I could throw at it!

Scarpa Mobe - 50+degree slopes, over 3000 ft per shot, speeds upwards of 60 mph, and driving a large big mountain ski, this boot felt and functioned just like the race stock boots that everyone else were using!
