Getting ready to take an Intro to Ski Mountaineering today with @janelle.smiley through @utavy . I don’t normally do organized gear posts because I’m an organized mess. BUT when I started getting ready it all came together. Can you tell I love color? Bright and lots of color everywhere, even the rug! #utah#utavy#skimountaneering#wasatch
All the mountains!
Take a break from frolicking in the fresh snow and come warm up at @emberslc for Above The Salt market! Lots of talented lady bosses here with amazing goods. Plus a food truck for when you get the munchies. Happening now until 5pm!
My mom @kander7 is pretty awesome and harvested this nice bull in Utah this past season. She is pretty smart too. She called me the evening she shot it and said, ‘Zach, I got my elk. Come bone it out and pack it out, please.’ I of course said YES and had a blast doing it. There’s nothing better than being in the outdoors with family. Thanks @matt.jordan425 and @susanganderson for Jeff’s help!! @belmont_anderson
What a day! Luckily, there are a few days a year when it really is a “High Fives and Redbulls” kind of day. Thanks to @kkrtilton and @shaynemerrill for the fun times. 📷: Rich Tilton (@kkrtilton) @snowbasinresort @skiutah Inbounds skiing at its best!

Can’t forget this fire poking, beer drinking guy. Happy Birthday to the love of my life. Thank you for all you do for us. We love you to the moon and back. Let’s go camping soon so you can cut some firewood and burn that shit ALL night long. #wasatch#offthegrid#budweiser#merica
“Old friends, heroes, lifetimes...” — an impromptu meet-up and shred with old friend @danfloriani and his boys today in the #Wasatch . So good to see you, brother! And big thanks to @montgomerywoods for (among many other generous acts) snapping this terrific photo.
Each of us has our own “comfort zone” which defines the routine of our daily lives. Being in one’s comfort zone implies familiarity, safety, and security. While creating a comfort zone is a healthy adaptation for much of our lives, so is stepping out, and growing in the process. Whatever your dream is, it is important and worth chasing. This weekend, @skirting_the_mountains of our Airstream Crew is taking an Intro to Ski Mountaineering course. She knows she will be outside her comfort zone, but is determined to try something new. What comfort zones are you pushing this weekend? Photo: @rewikstrom #GOATworthy#ChaseYourGOAT#backcountrygearheads#skimountaineering#utah#wasatch
Fire and Ice: with winter's arrival (finally!), ice has begun to form along the shores of Deer Creek Reservoir but the Heat from this sunset literally torched it! Thanks for the show, Mother Nature. These are the moments that touch my soul and keep me coming back for more.
Today was my first day out on my splitboard. I have to thank the snowboarding coach I happened to run into in the Alta parking lot for pointing out that I had the splits on reversed. This is the right way ... who knew!?! Didn’t need any help on the downhill, though. Holy schnikes there was a lot of pow!! Way more than expected. PS Skiing, I think you’re great and practical and all, but I’m sorry to have to tell you: snowboarding is my true love. It makes me feel a way that you just can’t. #sorrynotsorry#wasatch#mountains#backcountry#powder#snowboarding is so, so good ❄️🏂☃️👌#fyeah !
