    If you are still fired up to ski the backcountry, the Sierra Nevada is living up to it’s name this spring. Read this definition for the name of our favorite mountain range, the Sierra Nevada:  In 1776, Pedro Font's map applied the name to the range...

    The last few weeks have been nothing short of incredible. Incredible skiing, incredible (incredulous?) storm hype, incredible winds, and again… incredible skiing. Tired of this overused adjective already? Read on, we’ll get more creative I promise. The week following the Feb. 18-20 storms was all time....

    Philip and I met for coffee the morning following our three day adventure into the Royce Lakes basin of Pine Creek. We have climbed together in various mountainous areas across the U.S for over a decade and share the commonality of two loves: the love of...

    Teaching anyone how to climb is incredibly rewarding, but there is something special about introducing people to climbing in the mountains; opening the door to a whole new world of adventures in the vertical realm. At the age of 16 I was just starting to...

    Ah, the winter of feast or famine. What started off so promising, with a record breaking December snowpack, quickly turned to a mid winter where the headlines were major wind events and little snow.  During January and February, we were able to ferret out snow that...

    The 2021 alpine climbing season is here.  Over the last month Sierra Mountain Guides has conducted trips from Matterhorn Peak in the north to Lone Pine Peak and Mount Whitney in the south.  A light winter means trail access is great to reach the sheltered...

    Fall is quickly approaching, temperatures are dropping and the rock climbing season in Bishop is upon us! Well to be honest the climbing on the east side is amazing year round but Fall is when this zone really shines and there are two areas that...

    Happy spring Eastern Sierra skiers and riders! Hope you are enjoying the Sierra backcountry season so far. It's only around half way done. And with that in mind I would like this post to serve a few different purposes: 1) to help inform you about recent...
