Posted on July 1, 2014

View from the float plane on a scenic flight-seeing excursion just outside of Juneau. The ever expanding landscape reminds visitors of how big the state of Alaska truly is.

Travel junkie journalist Julia Dimon has landed in some unlikely locations, such as the jungles of Guyana, in close proximity to Chernobyl, and on the playa of Burning Man. Never short on story or anecdote, she has provided her own unique globe-trotting perspective on each destination and situation. But one location that brought her back for an encore was the great state of Alaska.

Trevor Frost is a hard man to keep tabs on. One week our adventure travel guide is in Australia’s Outback or the Sahara tracking the last true navigators for his dead reckoning project. Then the next week he checks in while filming orcas hunting seals on the beaches of Patagonia. But our latest dispatch from the high-mileage man arrived, with a submission of incredible photos, straight from the jungles of Borneo while on top-secret assignment for National Geographic.

Posted on June 20, 2014

A simple camp for a warm spring night on Mt. Rainier. Mt. Adams stands on the horizon to the south

As Drew Tabke outlined earlier this week, he is not one to relax on the Baja beach when there are still lines to be skied. In the sequel to his Snoqualmie Pass missions—where he ticked impressive descents of Mt. Thomson’s East Ridge and the Northeast Buttress of Chair Peak—Tabke headed for Washington’s big three volcanoes of Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Baker, and Mt. Rainier to score some of the best glaciated lines in the state, while logging more than 25,000 vertical feet during the second ski season in the Cascades.

When the competition season ends on the Freeride World Tour, most of the professional athletes head for warm-weather locations to decompress.

As late spring arrives, his adopted home range of the Cascades is just coming into form for serious steep skiing and volcano mountaineering missions, so Tabke took advantage of perfect timing to tick off burly descents of Mt. Thomson’s East Ridge and the Northeast Buttress of Chair Peak.

Posted on June 16, 2014

Rosablanche Couloir on Race Day

Caroline George gets after it as much as anyone on our team. But her drive to train for and complete the famous 53-kilometer Patrouille des Glaciers race along the Haute Route is one of the best competitive stories she’s ever told for us. The ski mountaineering race itself is a true Swiss sufferrest and the Swiss military history of its genesis is captivating. But Caroline’s personal story of training, guiding and racing—as well as her family history with the PDG—drew us into a storied rando experience that made our muscles and our lungs hurt to read.
