Mountain guide David Morton, skier Lexi duPont and snowboarders Chris Coulter, Kyle Miller and Wyatt Caldwell will join the roster of First Ascent athletes.
Last year, First Ascent ski guides Reggie and Zach Crist, along with Lel Tone, Tom Wayes, Lynsey Dyer, Kent McBride, Erik Leidecker, and Lexi duPont covered lots of ground and shredded tons of powder from Tahoe to Alaska.
First Ascent junior ski team member, Lexi DuPont, joined the rest of the team in Haines, Alaska, for a couple bluebird days of spine skiing. Check out her run down Light Meter “the sickest, most epic run of my entire life” says Dupont.
By Reggie Crist I recently took a trip to Southern Utah to ski terrain that hasn’t seen this much snow in upwards of 30 years. A giant amphitheater of towering red rocks above 10,000 ft., the conditions provided a great adventure through untouched lands.
