Photos and Trip Reports

Ski Mountaineering Photos & Trip Reports Equipment & Info Cascade Volcanoes Ring of Fire Site Map


Welcome to the first and oldest section of this website, containing photos and reports of many of my most memorable early skiing and climbing endeavors from 1997 to 2000 (see bottom of page). Unfortunately, this has now also become the most neglected section of the website, as no detailed trip reports have been added to this section since late 2000. I had once been planning to add full detailed reports for numerous trips since then, but other priorities have repeatedly intervened and I may never get around to doing so. Brief reports for many of my ski trips since 2001, plus a few long and detailed reports with many photos, have been posted to the Trip Reports bulletin board at Turns-All-Year. See the list below.


Selected skiing, mountaineering, and hiking trips, 2001-2014:

All trips listed are ski mountaineering trips unless otherwise noted, some have links to trip reports at Turns-All-Year which will open in a separate window. I do plan to eventually write brief reports for many of the link-less trips listed below (someday, maybe if time permits...), but numerous other trips of less significance are not listed here and will never have any trip reports written about them. Some of the most significant trips have been highlighted in BOLD.
