ORTOVOX, ATOMIC, YETI
Keep pushing myself both physically and mentally in the mountains. Learning and following the evolution of snow science is important to me so broadening my knowledge base is a key goal each year. Having fun is always the ultimate goal.
The combination of well thought out products designed for functional use and a strong snow safety focus is the key differntiator with ORTOVOX.

My wife says that I say "that was the best day in the mountains" after nearly every trip, so it is hard to pick the best descent. Skiing the Ford/Stettner Route on the Grand Teton sticks out for sure as top day of ski mountianeering and skiing the Shield off Horstman Peak in the Sawtooth range last spring was also pretty special.
Don’t assume we are void of making mistakes and always take that extra moment to ask yourself, "what am I missing; what will they say I screwed up when they file the accident report?"
