Cold dreams on a hot night are a perfect fit, no? We're setting the dates for the 2017-18 @backsidesessions women's splitboard clinics and figuring out where we should go and what we should offer. So, ladies: here's your chance to let us know! Comment here or tag your answer with #beyondchairlifts and let us know your ideas!
#saltlakecity#wasatch always providing adventures! So thankful to have buddies like @ryan.lehner to get out and enjoy the mountains with. Here are some photos from our 4th of July independence day celebration! @c0nw0w and @bengirardi We missed you this trip. Next year @christosalexis and all the homies need to go! #SparkADecadeDeep#attitudeofgrattitude#liveyouradventure @eddiebauer @smithoptics @sparkrandd @bluebirdwax @tryenerc @vertsrule @cheetah_racks @prival_usa @jonessnowboards
Finally getting to some footage from the past two weeks and put together this little edit of shredding pipeline with @michaelaasheimphotography. Stoked to be shredding into late June and now July! But for now, off to surf for the week 🏄🤘🏼! @kindsnacks @ltdoptics @izmapparel @holden_outerwear @ozsnowboards @mymedicofficial @nspsurfnsup @thesplitboardshop
Schoolroom movie 🎥 variation. Climbing has been a rewarding and humbling journey. This pitch was spontaneous. I was so stoked to pull through the crux and yell woohoo! Looking forward to more adventures in the Wasatch! Love my backyard. #SparkADecadeDeep#attitudeofgrattitude#liveyouradventure @eddiebauer @smithoptics @sparkrandd @bluebirdwax @tryenerc @vertsrule @cheetah_racks @prival_usa @jonessnowboards
While the approaches may be a bit more interesting in the summer, there definitely are certain benefits. Namely, crossing through the lush forests that were recently fed by the snowpack melting off. This gorgeous shot by @michaelaasheimphotography of @tcrow_snow and I on the NE ridge of Mt. Timpanogos this past weekend. @izmapparel @kindsnacks @ltdoptics @ozsnowboards @holden_outerwear @nspsurfnsup @thesplitboardshop @mymedicofficial
Whether dedication or delusion, yesterday was hideously fun! It was a mix of super thick bushwhacking, dodging rockfall, avoiding crevasses, and shredding super steep hard pack in Timpanogos' Grunge Couloir. Thanks @michaelaasheimphotography (📷) and @tcrow_snow for keeping the stoke and endless winter alive! @izmapparel @ltdoptics @kindsnacks @ozsnowboards @holden_outerwear @thesplitboardshop @nspsurfnsup @mymedicofficial
Me standing on top of Großes Fillarhorn with the mighty Nordend in the back. With 4609m it is considered a secondary peak of the Dufourspitze, Switzerland's highest point. Feels kinda weird to stand above 3600m and still feel tiny amongst those giants.
I met the beast @lexcreaper on an all time trip to baker with an all time camper crew. Go give this baker underground slayer a follow. @ejackshreds @garelos @wetrat and @misterwinfield getting the snaps in the foreground.
Despite spending most of our time tent bound, there were moments of brilliance, especially on our way on and off the glacier. Here a few moments shared and captured with @michaelaasheimphotography. Thanks Mike for the amazing experiences 🙏🏼. @ozsnowboards @izmapparel @ltdoptics @holden_outerwear @kindsnacks @nspsurfnsup @thesplitboardshop @mymedicofficial
@christosalexis on the last pitch of outside corner. Beautiful weekend so thankful for my friends. @c0nw0w was testing out his new drone. #SparkADecadeDeep#attitudeofgrattitude#liveyouradventure @eddiebauer @smithoptics @sparkrandd @bluebirdwax @tryenerc @cheetah_racks @prival_usa @jonessnowboards
The Kahiltna Glacier was home for the past 8 days where @michaelaasheimphotography (📷) and I had set out to climb and shred Denali. After 8 days of weathering storm after storm with the coldest temps Denali has seen in May in more than 40 years, and more adverse weather on the way, our contingency weather days were up, which meant we had no chance of summiting. It was tough. Both not summiting and sitting in a tent for days while freezing storm after freezing storm hit us. I learned a lot, had great conversations, and saw an incredibly beautiful place. Till next time Denali... @ozsnowboards @ltdoptics @kindsnacks @holden_outerwear @izmapparel @nspsurfnsup @thesplitboardshop @mymedicofficial
On a plane now with @michaelaasheimphotography heading to Alaska for a few weeks. Weather looks interesting but I'm stoked for some adventure. This shot from a few days ago booting a couloir at Alta. @ozsnowboards @ltdoptics @kindsnacks @izmapparel @holden_outerwear @nspsurfnsup @thesplitboardshop @mymedicofficial
Backside slashing with our first laps down Baldy for the year! Thanks @michaelaasheimphotography for another super fun day and killer shot! Till next week when we head to AK 🙏🏼🤘🏼! @ozsnowboards @kindsnacks @holden_outerwear @ltdoptics @izmapparel @nspsurfnsup @mymedicofficial @thesplitboardshop
Join Spark R&D and @venturesnow for the 2nd edition of the Beartooth Sessions Memorial Day weekend 5/27 - 5/29). We'll be shredding Beartooth Pass during the day and rocking a demo at Rock Creek Campground in the evening. Just look for the Venture tent and Spark banner. Hit us up with any questions. Cooke and the pass have a had a good winter, so we're thinking conditions are going to be prime! .
Don't need demos. All good, stop by and say what's up?!
Foraker stands at 17,402 feet, this photo was taken at 7,200 feet. To say the least, that's one big ass cloud. There were substantial amounts of ice and snow moving every day, this was the largest we had eyes on.
Approaching the choke of the Snake with 2000' of hot pow awaiting in the apron below. Thanks @michaelaasheimphotography for the great shot and @kaysheel & @colbycain92 for the fun times! @holden_outerwear @kindsnacks @ozsnowboards @izmapparel @ltdoptics @mymedicofficial @nspsurfnsup @thesplitboardshop
I'm super fortunate to have such great friends (who appreciate a sufferfest as much as I do) to travel and shred mountains with (a lot of partners names can be inserted here), and the photos that @michaelaasheimphotography takes are just a bonus. A pretty epic bonus, but definitely take a backseat to the fun we have. Every trip we go on he nails insane shots, but when he texted me this shot from yesterday shredding the Snake Couloir on Mt. Sneffels, my jaw hit the floor. We had to turn around and ride a different line off the summit of this 14er two weeks ago, and it felt great to get back and shred our originally intended line in perfect corn! Thanks Michael, @kaysheel & @colbycain92 for another unforgettable adventure 🙏🏼🤘🏼! @ozsnowboards @ltdoptics @holden_outerwear @kindsnacks @mymedicofficial @izmapparel @nspsurfnsup @thesplitboardshop
We didn't get into many crazy up routes on our trip. But this was the crux of our lunch patio stop on the way up the south face of Francis. Foraker looming in the background. #denalinationalpark#vertsrule
So I got these stones for my birthday from my mejor amiga @nadiaraina to protect me when I'm in the backcountry/backpacking. I take them with me on all my adventures. Keeping my paisa ass safe. 🏔 #sodalite#tourmaline#malachite#tanzanite
