Went for a paddle across the lake to go check out the "Matterhorn of the Monashees" something that has been staring at me for to many years.  With banger conditions and fast travel we were able to shred a great line off the ridge of Levers Pk and still shred the money run, ( large steep awesome line to the west of Frenchmans Cap).  Didn't stand on the summit but definetly got the...

Jeremy Jones trusts his life to the contents of his backpack. On a recent trip to Alaska, he spent each day ascending mountains with over thirty pounds on his back. Avalanche gear, climbing equipment, cameras, food, and water are just some of the items contributing to this load. Yet as Jeremy reveals in this episode of “Higher Unplugged,” each item is essential—as it may save his life or those...

The Deeper, Further, Higher trilogy encapsulates Jeremy's life as a snowboarder and captures the essence of...

Located between Cordova and Valdez, Pontoon Peak is one of the prized ski descents in the range. While an iconic photo has lead many skiers to believe Trevor Petersen and Eric Pehota skied it first, let...

Among the tens of thousands of photos in the Whistler Museum archives, Neal Carter's are my hands-down favourites. Carter was one of the most prolific mountaineers on the BC Coast during the 1920s and 1930s. In an admirably ahead-of-his-time move he even managed to turn his climbing hobby into a career, getting a summer job as as a surveyor for hydro crews around Garibaldi Lake, and then...

A little bit of mid February ski mountaineering on the coast. We set up a base camp behind Fitzimmons and waited a couple days of whiteout; eventually skiing Cheakamus, Overlord, Benvolio, and a lap on Fissile on the way out.

A short of a great day out with Mark Hartley, Greg Hill and Conor Hurley. We summited and shreded the south faces of both 8812 and Ursus Minor. GT would have been proud. Parks Howitzers were giving him the 21 gun salute that he deserved.
