Haines camping

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

Haines has been very hard on us this year. Not necessarily the classic stuff like a lot of bad weather and high avalanche danger but more a mechanical issue with our sleds. We always had some problems previous years but this year it has come to the point that we think someone is joking with us and will pull out the Candid Camera and tell us all bad things was just a joke.
After every setback we fight back and try to get out in the mountains to do what we are here for.
Stephan and Jon have been able to get a few lines in and me and Ben has got some pretty good stuff after all. One mission has been to get out on the glaciers to build a snow cave and stay out there to get to the lines early and not have to go home every night.
Here are a few shots and video from our last trip.

Back in Haines

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

I just came back to Haines again with Jon Larsson and Stephan Drake and it’s almost like coming home. It’s my 5th winter here and I love coming back every year.
So far we have been fighting against the classic AK weather. The forecast say rain and we wake up to sun and by the time we are on the mountain it’s grey again. The snow is great out there, we just need a bit more sun to get the shots. However we have had a few really fun days with the snowmobiles.
Here is a video, I hope to show some more action in the next post.
