This webpage is dedicated to human powered adventures – primarily, but not exclusively, to ski mountaineering. Much of the venturing has taken place, and shall continue, in two different mountain ranges – the Tetons of Wyoming and the Wasatch of Utah.
It is being created for various reasons, the most primary of which is to attempt to answer the seemingly eternal question, ‘Why persist in taking such risks?’ I get asked this question a lot, as I suspect do many people who venture with skis outside of established resort area boundaries. I have answered the question in more ways than it can be phrased, and yet am never completely happy with the answer I give. That’s because any answer to this question is necessarily incomplete. Here I endeavor to more fully answer the inquiry. Perhaps I shall discover some new answers along the way as well. If nothing else, there will be more adventures.
