Summer Snowshoeing

Right. I got new Tubbs snowshoes in June for being selected as one of their Ambassadors and then the Seattle area weather gets good? Is that fair? I think not. And that’s why we once again give thanks for the great Mt. Rainier.

Sunrise welcomed us with blue skies and freakishly warm weather. Ok, kids. Lose the Read More

Safety & Fun in the Mountains

 

I’ve been really, really lucky in the mountains.

During the day, I help people understand their exposure to risk and find ways to address it. You’d figure I’d be extremely adverse to risk in my private life. It turns out, I need some risk to maintain a healthy balance. Read More

I received my first pair of snowshoes for Christmas in 2009.  I never asked for them.  And I remember thinking “Me? Snowshoe? I don’t snowshoe.  It’s cold and, well, snowy”.

My husband was planting a seed.  You see, life has thrown Read More

Snowshoeing to Extremes 

Backcountry snowshoeing, strictly speaking, is so esoteric it barely exists.  Not that many people camp, compared to the general population; fewer still winter camp; fewer still tromp around in snowshoes.

But even for those that do, it can hardly be called dangerous.  Slow, occasionally exerting—but when was the last time Read More
