They call this area "The Grand Canyon of the Pacific", and I'd have to agree. Unbelievable vertical relief, complex erosion features, and nifty volcanic hand samples! Lovely day with @kealasarah #rocksarecool #geologyrocks
Goodluck to my dad this weekend on his Mt Baker summit bid with college buds. May the weather be wrong, and the snow corny!
Got some serious weekend wiggles coming on, holy smokes what a work week! 🤪
My dad got the full Mount Rainier experience this weekend. Arriving at Camp Muir by midnight, getting rocked by an overnight blizzard while hunkered in our tent, and a surprisingly successful summit. My dad took me on quite a few savage hikes when I was really young. At the ripe old age of 64, I thought it was high time I returned the favor! Congratulations padre, you crushed it!!

Happy birthday @kealasarah! Cheers, to another year around the sun!
Blue bird spring skiing, just around the corner! 🌽🌽🌽
Had a rad time out with @drew_hurter @ean_d @ashtnr & @sleepyslothseth in beautiful British Columbia last week. Thought that was going be the last powder trip of season, but then it snowed 14++ inches at the pass last night...
Traversed through The Enchantments this weekend with Evan. Hard to say what the highlight of the trip was, but Aasgard Pass was certainly a high point (literally). Infamous for heinous icy shenanigans, we prepared for anything dropping in blind to the crux 2000' pitch. We found boot to knee deep cold smoke, steep and stable, on a tight continuous line all the way down to Colchuck Lake. Pretty sure we used up all our spring skiing karma on that one!
My dad sampling the snow this past weekend around Rogers Pass. Stoked for some more quality spring skiing with this guy!
How about this weather?! Sure felt great to thaw out this weekend in Bend with @kealasarah. Winter's not done with us yet, but this tease feels real nice 🌴
Duncan (@dmasland) enjoying some sunny-ish turns from this weekend. Winter has been delivering the goods lately, and also dealing some pretty heavy consequences. Stay frosty up there friends.
