A pirate’s heart be like a mango. Woody and tough at the core, but there be plenty o’ softness around it…

The First Day of the Rest of the Season.

Photo by Jay Beyer

So after a few injury laden weeks from an episode involving a stubborn tree and my hip, I finally made it back into the mountains.  Tradeshows brought me down to Denver for SIA and Salt Lake City for OR, to ride some pow with my good friend Jay Beyer (jaybeyer.com)  The Wasatch doesn’t disappoint even with an ice layer from a rain sequence the week prior, as we found good snow on the backside of Mt. Superior.  Sunny skies and decent wind deposited enough new snow to cover up parts of that ice layer … READ MORE >

Spring in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem!

Featuring

Spring is in full swing in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.  You name it, we’ve got it!  Wind, rain, hail, snow, sunshine a bit of everything in just one day.  One of my goals for this early Spring season was to start testing two of Mystery Ranch’s smaller packs, the Courier bag & Booty bag.  In conjunction with May being National Bike month, I thought this would be a perfect fit.  This Spring, I was fortunate enough to visit a good friend, Corrie in Jackson Hole, WY who is an amazing pastry cook in Teton Village.

During my visit I wore … READ MORE >

The Golf Mahal

Featuring

The first thing that one sees when the bag is closed is what I call the Darth Vader Mask. This is a source of much rejoicing, specifically for coastal and mountain golfers that aren’t afraid to play in the elements, but really for all tournament golfers that have had to play in the rain at one point or another with a bag that didn’t cut the mustard. The lid entirely covers the mouth of the pack and has rain gutters that extend down the sides so as to keep out rain, sleet, or snow (and whatever else Mother Nature might … READ MORE >

Turning Japanese

Sweetgrass founder Nick Waggoner pauses before lining up the last shot of the day.

January 8, 2009; After cramming 180lbs of ski gear, cameras, and junk into my packs, I jumped a flight out of LAX to spend the next three months documenting face shots, hot-springs, sushi parties and karaoke, with Sweetgrass Productions in Japan. For their sophomore release, Sweetgrass spent nearly half a year in Japan, shooting full season of backcountry skiing on the northern island Hokkaido.
