The ice from the Greenland Ice Cap pre dates the Romans, maybe it was these icebergs that inspired Roman architecture. These icebergs certainly inspired @realwillgadd and myself as this arch beautiful framed Will as he climbed this giant beauty last summer on Disko Bay. @redbulladventure @redbullillume #rbi19submission

So saddened about the news this week. The mountain community lost some truly amazing people! My heart goes out to their families and loved ones. I was fortunate to spend some time with @davidlama_official this winter, so incredibly humble and genuine! It’s not his ninja, mountain goat skills that resonate with me, it was his kind heart that impacted me the most.

Incredible honored to see this image of @lonniekkauk on the cover of @climbingmagazine taken in Yosemite Valley. I have had a subscription to Climbing Magazine since the early 90’s, it’s incredibly humbling to see your photo showcased like this amongst all the amazing images and photographers that have been such an inspiration to my climbing and photography!

The daily commute ascending from the inner depths of a moulin on the Greenland Ice Sheet. A look down the shaft shows @realwillgadd @jason_gulley_science and @scott simper getting ready to escape the hole soon after. @redbulladventure @redbullcanada @redbullillume #rbi19submission

Greenland was a wild adventure with @realwillgadd and one of the most beautiful and stunning landscapes I have ever witnessed. Seeing the glaciers meet the ocean as the icebergs drift away then camping on the ice cap and descending into the glacier. This image of Will climbing out from the depths of a moulin was a highlight and cumulation of the entire adventure. We had climbed on icebergs, froze our asses off in sub-zero temps, navigated safely inside a volatile glacier and now ice climbing in one of the wildest places on the planet. @redbulladventure @redbullillume #rbi19submission

@realwillgadd descending into the deep blue! Excited to share this Greenland project with Will Gadd and @jason_gulley_science as we spent time on the Greenland Ice Cap exploring a moulin which is a deep ice cavity in the glacier.

@mammothmountain has received so much snow this year the mountain has transformed into one big surf sliding wave and the sets were definitely double over head for @bernierosow today! @blackcrows_skis

@natgeo just hit a 100 million followers! To celebrate they are having a photo contest with your most Nat Geo inspired image, this photo of @realwillgadd ice climbing on Mount Kilimanjaro is my @natgeo inspired pic. The surrealness of ice climbing on sand and on top of Africa has always been so intriguing to me. #natgeo100contest

One that got away... found this photo in the archives shot a few years ago, never color corrected it or sent it to anyone. Here it is now for the first time to have eyes on this image besides my own. A moment in time captured, forgotten about, and now relived again. @bernierosow skiing a @mammothmountain classic!

Winter is here and last nights Night of Lights @mammothmountain was amazing. Such a fun evening and kind of our official start to the ski season and holiday season here in Mammoth.

December 2018

It was a fun week @mammothmountain skiing in the clouds, above the clouds and shooting pics of Powder Dan Molnar as he takes a ski break from @firstchairfoods Mammoth only grab and go food truck parked at @footloosesports parking lot, grab a breakfast burrito on your way to the hill or a yummy sandwich when you finish skiing!
