Arrival Day It all happened so fast. One minute I’m skiing in Cortina Italy, and the next I’m landing in Isafjordur Iceland.Iceland Air has a great layover program you can take advantage of when traveling between the States and Europe. That’s your bonus travel tip you get for reading my experience, and probably the one thing you should take away. Isafjordur is located in the far north of Iceland, and has one of the coolest airports in the world. The runway is literally surrounded on all sides by water, and the water is surrounded on 3 sides by mountains. We ...

As Joel is deep in Alaska at this time, his wife is receiving sat phone updates and relaying the information over to us.

Project Denali: Final Training Run on North Maroon Peak

North Maroon Peak, which is one of the "Maroon Bells," is without a doubt the most iconic peak in Colorado. It shows up everywhere. It seemed to taunt me every time I saw it in an ad campaign, movie, website or even on my grocery store card. Previously, each time I've tried to ski it there have been issues with my ski partners or I've been turned around by conditions (like in this trip report from last year). This year things were different.Climbing and skiing the North Face of North Maroon Peak was another great bit of training for Denali. ...

Getting in good physical shape for ski mountaineering is much different than getting in good physical shape for skiing. I've gotten quite a few questions about what I'm doing to train for Denali aside from skiing other peaks, so I figured it would be a good idea to do a little write-up about my general weekly training routine.For starters, my training schedule usually looks something like this:Sunday - Family Day and RestMonday - Gym DayTuesday - Ski DayWednesday - Gym DayThursday - Gym DayFriday - Ski DaySaturday - Ski DaySince January my gym workouts have changed significantly when compared my ...
