Had a nice chat with the Biglines crew. Mikey Nixon is a hilarious bastard, so it was pretty enjoyable.
In the World of skiing, the ski media doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to understanding and communicating the sub-sport of steep skiing. Even so-called expert journalists have a hard time differentiating between an Alaskan movie straight-line and a true steep objective. It’s nice to have websites like Biglines that ‘just get it’.

Psyched to get some photos in the new Fluid Photo Annual. Has to be the highest quality (a least in look and feel, since I don’t read French) ski mag in the world. These were taken on the Huayuash expedition to Peru with Ptor and Sweetgrass. French ski mags never seem to pay me, but hopefully these guys will Cover photo isn’t mine.
Awesome to see Nick Waggoner getting his due. The most creative ski film director out there.
Cool to do my first interview with the mountainlife crew, who’ve been representing the Coast well for the last bunch of years. Thanks to Todd (who’s a master adventurer in his own right), for keeping it real and not making me seem like a total douche – since the ski media is filled with so much hype and BS these days.
It turned out to be an awesome issue to be in. Lots of other squampton friends such as Christian Begin (owner of Bella Coola heliskiing / film-maker guru), and Alain Denis, who stayed at my house this summer and has spent the last decade or so wandering this fine planet. Another cool thing, was the Swede talking about his and Steiner’s first descent of the Siberian in the Bella Coola article, while I mention my 1st solo descent of the same line, which might not have been repeated.
