After going through the Scarpa and Marker pile, look what turned up!

Lots inside, but highlight is Wildsnow contributor Anton Sponar's adventure travel narrative.

Lots inside, but highlight is Wildsnow contributor Anton Sponar's adventure travel narrative. With photos by Anton and Jordan White.

Inside you’ll also find articles about Kristen Ulmer (harkening back to the days of the Greg Stump movies). Likewise, how about Tai Barrymore, grandson of ski film pioneer Dick Barrymore? Do we see a theme here?

Overall, enough backcountry skiing stoke to get your engine burning like one of our giant slash fires up at WildSnow field HQ.

For info see the Ski Journal website.

    I believe I recall a third photographer with photos in that Frozen Salsa article, grin. Too bad they mixed up the photo captions. It took me a minute for figure out what was going on and I was there.

    Caleb, was one of the photos yours, or were you IN the photo? Confused.

    I was just teasing you a bit Lou as I know you are detail oriented guy. I took two of the photos in the article and authored the captions. But it seems like those Aspen guys get all the publicity, grin! Anton’s write up was really impressive. And of course it was quite the honor to see anything published in something the quality of The Ski Journal.

Got something to say? Please do so.
