Bend, OR, USA
Ski powder all winter, travel to new areas, and climb/ski new routes on the cascade volcanic peaks.
Ortovox has its roots in avalanche safety and that means a lot to me.
Mt. Hood, Oregon
Best descent: north bowl of Mt. Mcloughlin in southern Oregon. Best tour: ski traverse across the Juneau Icefield in Alaska.
Make careful terrain choices. If you are unsure about the snow stability, move to lower angle terrain. The steep lines will be there for another day.
I am a certified ski guide through the American Mountain Guides Association and I am helping to create a grassroots avalanche center in Central Oregon. Ski descents of all the major Cascade volcanic peaks from Mt. Baker in Washington to Mt. Lassen in California.
