    Sign me up!! Climbing and skiing a peak in insane weather, while keeping a positive and outlook, is a big piece of the backcountry skiing pie. Nice video.

    Those big intermittent gusts can be fun. Nice work.

    Very good pick Mr. DJ.

    Yea, it is always exciting when it gets really windy.

    That one helmet cam shot where the wind blasts my legs brought me to my knees, and blew Jason backwards about 5 feet. His pole also went for a little ride. Fun stuff.

    Looks like quite a day out & great video. Always enjoy watching weather & being a part of it as long as its not over the top!!

    Here’s a little sample from the east (Mount Marcy, NY), from a few weeks back.
