Hi all. I said I’d never do it again, but I did it anyway. The new book looks wonderful, publisher Andy Sovick did a fine job. I’m looking forward to seeing if our concept of “avalanche safe” mostly novice tours is good for everyone. Gift for the new ski tourer you’re just breaking in? Check. Kids just starting and you need places to go? Check. High avy danger and you need a workout? Check.
Andy and I are doing a few PR events, listed below. I’d love to see you there, and talk about any Colorado ski touring options — extreme — or easy. Perhaps I’ll even mention a 14er or two — but only the easy routes (smile).
