Backcountry Ski Film Solitaire Screening

January 12th, 2012

Nick Waggoner and Zac Ramras spent the better part of two years on foot, horseback, and ski-skins travelling between some of South America’s most desolate mountains. The end product of their effort, Solitaire, is perhaps the most stunning ski film ever shot. The film features 31 different skiers and snowboarders, two of whom, Arne Backstrom and Kip Garre, passed away during production. Solitaire was selected for the Banff and Mountain Film Festival, and won IF3 Festival’s Best Cineomatography Award.

Outside Magazine is showing the backcountry ski film Solitaire on their website tonight, January 12th, 2012 at 6 PM MST. Head over to this page to see it. Join a live chat at 7 PM MST with filmmaker Nick Waggoner and skiers Kim Havell and Stephan Drake.

Colorado Avalanche Alert

May 9th, 2011

Peru Creek Avalanche April 30, 2011


The Colorado Avalanche Information Center and the Colorado Geological Survey have issued an avalanche alert:

“Public, fieldworkers, recreationalists cautioned that unusually heavy snowpack could spark larger, stronger avalanches in uncommon locations. Unusually deep snowpack in parts of Colorado’s northern and central mountains has the potential to produce dangerous avalanches in pathways that may not have run in decades, and that may run farther than they have in recent memory.”

Many monitoring sites are recording snowpack levels of more than 160 percent of average, with some with levels well over 200 percent of an average year.

An example of this hazard occurred April 30, when an unusually large and destructive avalanche struck the Peru Creek drainage near the town of Montezuma in Summit County. This avalanche destroyed large, 100-plus year-old trees as well as a high-voltage tower that was installed in the late 1970’s. This was an isolated event, but an indication of what is possible this spring.

In addition, the Colorado Geological Survey warns that the heavy snowpack combined with a rapid warm-up could also lead to substantial mudslides and debris flows. For instance, similar conditions in 1984 led to more than 40 mudslides and debris flows in the Vail Valley. More information is available at Natural Resources Conservation Service with a map showing federal NRCS SNOTEL data on snowpack.
Backcountry advisories are available at the Colorado Avalanche Information Center through May 30.

Ortovox Introduces New Avalanche Beacon

September 22nd, 2010

Ortovox 3+ Avalanche Beacon

An avalanche beacon is an essential piece of gear for backcountry skiing and snowshoeing that I hope I never need to use. Minutes are crucial when someone is buried in the snow. If they don’t have an air pocket, they can suffocate fairly quickly.

Ortovox is a popular brand of avalanche beacon and I have one of their F1 Focus avalanche transceivers. Now they’ve introduced the 3+ Avalanche Beacon. The 3+ is the first 3-antenna device with Smart Antenna Technology™, intelligent positioning system that analyzes the position of the antennas and automatically switches to the most optimal transmission. In short, the 3+ makes all other avalanche beacons more efficient at finding you.

The 3+ Avalanche Beacon represents a significant and important forward step in backcountry safety technology. Utilizing Smart Antenna Technology™, the 3+ is the first avalanche beacon to automatically recognize which of its two primary antennas is best positioned to emit the strongest flux line for rescuers to pick up. “There’s never been an avalanche beacon like this,” said Ortovox USA CEO Marcus Peterson, “A lot of energy and investment has been spent making transceivers get better at searching. The 3+ is undoubtedly the best at being found.”

The 3+ is no slouch at finding people either. A large real-time display with directional arrow and distance to the victim helps hone your rescue quickly and intuitively. The display deck also allows for a visual, easy-to-use overview of multi-burial situations that allows the rescuer to flag a victim once they are found. Additional features include rubberized housing for added protection, lighted display for night searches, switchover in case of a follow-up avalanche, optimized search acoustics and visual representation of victim proximity (in addition to metric distance).

All the features sound great for the Ortovox 3 Plus avalanche beacon so hopefully it performs as well in real life situations as the company says. I’ve been on backcountry hut trips where the group has had a few different avalanche beacons. We’ve practiced finding buried beacons and there are differences in how well they pick up the signals and how easy they are to use.

Good News…If You Love Snow

May 13th, 2010
Visitors Enjoying Fresh-Snow in RMNP

Don’t put away your snowshoes yet.  Rocky Mountain National Park received more than a foot of snow Tuesday night, with more snow forecast. (This picture was taken Wednesday.)   If you haven’t snowshoed at this park, you’re missing out – trails retain deep powder for days after a storm.  My favorite? Loch Vail, that starts at Bear Lake. 

And if you’re mourning the end of another ski season, this will lift your spirits:  The Rocky Mountain Superpass is on sale – buy before June 1 for $449 and you get three free lift tickets for friends or family.  The season pass covers unlimited skiing and riding at Copper Mountain and Winter Park and six days at Steamboat.  For info, go to www.skicolorado.com or call  1-800-977-SNOW.
