AMGA Ski Mountaineering exam done!
03/14/2007, North Cascades, Washington.

Just finished the AMGA Ski mountaineering exam with Christian Santellices of Jackson Hole Wyoming, we both passed.

The weather, snow conditions and terrain type made it one of the hardest, yet rewarding things I've ever been involved with.

The examiners Martin Volken and Jean Pavillard both of Switzerland gave us the good news yesterday. We both couldn't be happier, it was great to be done with that process.

Here is a picture of myself, Jean, Martin and Christian.

Another fantastic trip...
02/25/2007, British Columbia

Such a great week I had in B.C....met some fantastic folks, and skiied incredible terrain. Main goals for me this week were simply work hard with Ruedi and gain more insight into not only his operation, but his style and leadership in complex terrain. It gave me such new appreciation for his hard work not only with regards to running the whole place, but guiding in such complex conditions. Avalanche danger at times was rather high, and frankly when it's like this-you learn more, as long as your looking out for it, he does and does it well.
