First Ascent ski guides Reggie and Zach Crist have been enjoying the excellent, early season snow conditions on their home turf in Sun Valley, Idaho. Here’s a look at how they’re spending the holidays with family and finding fresh powder! Merry Christmas from all of us here at Eddie Bauer First Ascent!
The First Ascent team, including Reggie Crist, Zach Crist and Lynsey Dyer, is heading back to Beaver Creek, CO, Dec. 3-5, to support Birds of Prey—the only men’s World Cup ski race event in the United States.
It was quite a year for First Ascent ski guides Reggie and Zach Crist, Lel Tone, Tom Wayes, Erik Leidecker and Kent McBride, as they set out to design the 2010 ski collection.
By Tom Wayes Throughout my guiding career, I have been on a quest for the ultimate day—whether it’s with friends on a personal trip or with clients. As a guide, you are trying to balance taking people where you want to go and where they should go
By Erik Leidecker Throughout my heli-ski guiding career, I’ve had a few opportunities to work with film, video and still photography production teams. My responsibilities usually include snow stability evaluation, assistance in run selection and emergency back-up.
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.
What does the First Ascent ski guide team do when the heli’s grounded in Alaska? They hit the icy waters and the sleds for a different kind of adventure.
