View Interactive Feature It’s been at least six months since many folks in northwest Washington took their last turns on snow, and while that sure seems like a long time ago, the hiatus makes it all the sweeter.

“Is Magnus Granér a daredevil? I don’t think he sees it that way. For him, a tail slash along a cliff is no more dangerous than walking next to a road. Granér is always so present in his skiing that even if this moment went horribly wrong, he’d find a way to ski down the rocks like a cat.”

Looking out across the endless gray of the Swiss Alps, snow-frosted and stoic, skiers at Laax were perplexed by the sign. It was shaped like a traditional blue square marker, the universal indicator of intermediate terrain, but in 2015 something about this one was different—it was a simple graphic...

The match was as good as over. Checkmate in three, or as little as one, if he screwed up. But that wasn’t the point. Adrien Grabinski hadn’t played in years; I’d been on an internet chess bender the month prior. I wanted to see how his brain worked. I asked how he’d move intuitively, what hi...

Adventures from spring with Ayako in the Furano backcountry.

Mentioned this mission in The Ski Journal
but here are more photos.

Been picking away at the lines in 芦別岳, 夕張山地 for the last 5 years and everytime I think I am near the end of my projects I see a different line across the way and think "damn, I should be over there!"

Blessed to have such fun friends and a wild backyard that keeps me learning, curious and inspired.

Hokkaido is certainly famous for winter snow but spring is always what I look forward to.

Thx to Hokkaido wings
and Roman for picking us up after swimming out the gorge 😅😇🙏

My article in The Ski Journal is out now! Last time, I wrote about our high altitude ski mountaineering expedition to Tajikistan.

This one is about having Hokkaido all to ourselves, peacefully experiencing endless pow while the borders were closed and the pandemic unfolded around the world.

Come and explore the Hokkaido wilderness with me winter!

Un article sur notre projet l'hiver dernier dans le nouveau magazine The Ski Journal. 📰

"Calling themselves the Prospecteurs—French for “prospector”—the group was seeking something outside their comfort zone. After years of metal, concrete and icy transitions, they’d turned their attention to the trees and a new way to ski in their own backyard, discovering the oft-overlooked backcountry of frigid northeast Canada…"

The Ski Journal exclusive - Lift as You Climb: Vasu Sojitra’s Kinetic Energy by Kade Krichko

“Vasu doesn’t just get around. He’s one of the most accomplished adaptive athletes on the planet. In addition to emerging as a premier (and fully self-taught) backcountry skier in the Beartooth and Bridger ranges of Montana, he has climbed the Grand Teton, earned skateboarding shout-outs from Tony Hawk and Nyjah Huston, and become the first adaptive athlete on The North Face roster.

“But to really understand Vasu’s journey, it’s important to look, once again, at the tattoo. The lotus flower is important in Hindu and Buddhist cultures, a flower that can grow and prosper from any body of water, no matter how dirty or polluted. As a disabled person and first-generation Indian American, Vasu has taken the lotus’ resilience to heart, working his way up from the small ski hills of his Connecticut childhood to some of the most challenging peaks in North America. In addition to his physical achievements, he’s found his calling working as an adaptive ski coach, mentor, and program director while co-founding Inclusive Outdoors Project a collective dedicated to promoting inclusion and representation for people of color, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQIA2S+ communities within mountain sports. He is also a founding member for The Outdoor Future Initiative, and a Disability Access strategist partnering with organizations like The Avarna Group, In Solidarity Project, and independently.

“‘I want to get more people involved, shorten the hurdles people face to get into skiing and help them to find that same sense of freedom,” he says. “I’m trying to lift as I climb.’”

Check out the full article in the exclusive online version.

Thank you again The Ski Journal for elevating not just me, but also the amazing organizations making the outdoors more accessible.
