    Adventure

    I spent the past two days climbing out in Lee Vining Canyon with my good friend Dave to celebrate the Super Bowl by smashing up some ice and freezing our tails off! No, neither of us really cared much about the super bowl this year,...

    We’re back for another Eastern Sierra Ice Report. It’s been a few weeks and a few things have changed here in the Eastern Sierra. We have had a few snow storms hit the range that have kept our snowpack interesting but even more interesting is...

    Well we had a nice start to our ice climbing season at the beginning of December but some warm weather has made things a bit more interesting and a bit more grim? Hopefully the holiday season can bring us some nice cold temperatures and some...

    It’s been an interestingly slow start to the winter season here on the Eastside. Mammoth Mountain Ski Area has been open since November but the snow totals for the season so far would suggest that would be impossible. Thank god for snowmaking? It’s been warm...

    Avalanche education in the United States started when the US Forest Service needed a better way to train their staff who worked in avalanche terrain back in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. In the mid 80’s the American Avalanche Association (AAA) surfaced, which marked...

    The summer solstice is here, but summer still feels like a long way off.  Some of our local spots on the east side of the Sierra have road closures or roads are just barely getting ready to open for the season.  This is due to...

    This is a summary of snow conditions, the overall avalanche situation and road access in the Eastern Sierra at the beginning of May 2023. Winter is on the retreat in the Sierra. The massive amount of snow we received is giving way to spring at lower...

    Part 1: Shelter and Water What possesses an individual to take on the challenges of a mountain environment in the winter? The coldest season with the least daylight. Add in the additional hazards of avalanches, ice and rock fall, and cold injuries; it seems logical for...

    Snow. It is the leading topic of conversation among winter recreationalist, and this year even more so. While we are often worried about the lack of storms as we navigate dry winters, this year is one for the record books and there is no sign...
