HH Ambassador JF Plouffe takes us through the conclusion of Expedition Mount Saugstad. Part 2 of 2 - The Way Up Day 4 Another push through the forest finally got us to the glacier. But it took us 2 hours for that 1km...Crazy west coast vegetation! The glacier was humongous, broken up by massive vertical cliffs creating 4 major walls. The crevasses were all exposed and bigger than any recorded photos taken from planes or helicopters. We navigated our way to the vertical parts where we ice climbed to set up anchors. The weather was not helping us. ...

Kaylin Richardson took a spare second between flights to update us on her whirlwind travel schedule on the road with the Warren Miller tour. After a crazy sell out on the opening night, she is off to various stops all over the US, check out which cities she'll be in and make sure to head out to 'No Turning Back': It is crazy how time flies. In many ways it seems the two weeks I spent filming with Warren Miller in Lofoten, Norway last March was yesterday. Exhausted, inspired, and in awe of what I had just experienced, when we ...

The tough part of being a skiing enthusiast is you only get to indulge your passion half the year. That is, of course, if you confine yourself to a single hemisphere.
