Be original. Not off the shelf. Skiing doesn't need anymore... (fill in the blank)

"Coincidentally I had a fun but rough night last night, as I did 8 years ago. This photo was taken by my buddy George as we descended from the shoulder to base camp on Aug 5. Instead of going skiing today I'm going to run errands and hang out in Portland. "

Spent this week being an in patient lab rat for some extra cash (today is day five out of seven). Obviously haven't been able to work on anything in here and my high hopes of getting oodles of paintings done were crushed by lethargic feelings and an iv in my arm.
Not my typical post, but spent last night taking stills off some videos from last spring. Dinking around on a quarter pipe and a nose butter 180.
Climbers starting up the lowest section of the Black Pyramid. The weather windows on K2 are usually so short that you must climb in marginal weather to be near the top when the good weather arrives.
Had a blast cruising hood the past few weeks. Big ups to @windellscamp for creating the most fun supportive environment for kids to be in!
Also shout out to @sugarbushparks for the sickest rail in the lane🌋

I had been saving this picture, that we took in South Carolina before hitting the road, for some sort of epic pre or post "Low-Pro Road Show™" Tour post but life gets busy quick once the snow melts, or when I'm done skiing for the time being, which usually ends up being at random whenever I feel like it.
This epic post was gonna run something along the lines of the tireless and standard skibum itinerary but that would require some draw for epic powder days in the west everyday and apres parties every night, and with one of the most epic snow seasons, one would expect that Hotdog vs Aspen Extreme narrative to prime the stoke all over again... While I voluntarily and truly ski bummed once again for 2017, past due and stale at 34 yrs old for what the job requires, jobless homeless living and traveling out of my car committed to a full day of skiing everyday and nothing more, (refusing to ski on anything I hadn't mounted myself because any self proclaimed professional or low-pro skier to proceeded otherwise as far as I'm concerned would be cause for a status change), any pre subscribed ski bum cliches could be further from the truth.
Cause when you deal the hand your dealt in life, and in this case for me as a skier dealing the hand I was dealt as a skier which meant no race background, no ski town, no powder days, no moguls, no 8 month seasons, no money, buying skis at yard sales, 500 vert, 200% snowmaking, 213cm, VHS, 4 month seasons, "Theft of Services", trips to Tennessee not Colorado, feet strapped together, localism, fights...your outlook and style happens accordingly like an esthetic scar destined to be the only way. Screwed and Glued.
21 years deep and I'm just getting started.
Do. It. Yourself,

hi Maddy, thanks for a fricken year to remember. I'm so thankful for our random meeting in my backyard last summer that turned into an unexpected friendship which then turned into us being roommates and a love that will last FOREVER. Thanks for all the yolo times, the laughs and inspiring me to be more outgoing. You're a real homie, here's to a million more years of laughs. luv u. #nobaddays#reallygood#lifewelllived#happinessissimple#plantertrash#skiertrash#hereforthelaughs
About 30 hours worth of wading through mash potatoes to get to the dairy after last weeks storm.
Probably the last big mission of the season for me before bone graft time on Tuesday.
This chick. @kelseycchapman has the BEST jump photos on the 🌎 PLANET!!! Prob because she's a badass bc skier and mountain biker...oh and she also made our #DoRadShit Truckette! Follow her over at @caambr_digital if ya wanna see her get after it!
A year ago I couldn't find this couloir or name the peak I'm standing on in this photo. Put in the research work over the winter, only to have my ACL graft fail this spring and take the meniscus and LCL with it. Thought I wouldn't be able to get into the mountains this touring season but thankfully I was able to bounce back for a few more.
