    A step by step guide to completing the Golden Triathlon

Step one: bike ~1500 vertical meters with your skis from Spirit Square up Mt. 7 to the summit hiking trail. 
Step two: hike/run/scramble 500m up to the summit (in cycling cleats, of course). Step three: ski the iconic 7 shaped snowpatch. 
Step four, hike/jog back to your bike. 
Step five: ride trails all the way back down to town, taking care not to clip your skis on a tree and get wrecked. 
And finally, step 6: drink beer at the River House.

Mission accomplished. Thanks for indulging my bad ideas @shittymountaineer.

    ——————————————————2019 K-COUNTRY QUADRATHLON
—————————————————— The Ski Once a Month Club convened its June meeting a couple weeks ago.  We added a couple more events to spice things up.  We covered a total of 43 km (28 km bike🚴‍♂️, 10 km hike🚶‍♂️, 5 km skin and ski⛷, and a 5 second swim🏊‍♂️). It was an out and back course starting at the winter gate on Highway 40 and finishing at Rae Glacier.  There were three competitors—Jamie Everett, Noah Everett, and myself.  I was pretty excited to get third place😅.

    Traded out my annoying knee injury for a far more annoying, more painful hip injury about two weeks ago, so I’m just gonna continue to reminisce about this day and the end of the ski season in general until I’m healthy and can start training in earnest for summer mountain running season #IPOS #NeverNotInjured #23GoingOn86 #longspeak #dynafit

    Solo trip up another volcano in a single day push. Made it up in excellent time, but more so I felt physically great the whole climb, strong, and confident on my skis. Lucky me, I met a wonderful group who offered to have me tag along on their descent via the SW Chute.  It was the most fun I’ve had on a mountain this season and possibly the best corn harvest to date.  Great snow on Adams y’all! .

    Skiing some dirty snow in the Fuhrer Finger last week. It's starting to look a little too summery for my liking... When's that next refresh coming? 📷: @mattlumphoto

    All last week, @moore1488 and I, along with a few new friends we met along the way, laid siege to the highest peak in North America, Denali.  And at the risk of sounding arrogant - we made out like bandits. Notorious for its bad weather, ‘The High One’ blessed us with an amazing stretch of calm low pressure that allowed us to tackle every ski objective we’d traveled all that distance to claim.  In quick succession, we ticked off Sunnyside, followed by a long push from 14K Camp to the Summit with a midnight ski down the Orient Express, and we capped the trip off with a ripping descent of the mighty Messner Couloir.
It certainly was not easy; every time I hiked above 17K, I succumbed to altitude sickness, with the resulting feeling that I was drunk (not a great feeling when you’re ascending a massive steep slope). But the payoffs loomed large and slowly and methodically I continued to push my way up.
I don’t think any of us could have dreamed our trip up to the top of North America could have been so successful.  We finally flew off the glacier breathless, a bit giddy, and in awe of our good luck - and maybe just a bit proud that we pulled it off.
I’ve always been wary of climbing and skiing big peaks such as this; mainly, because I was fearful I’d fall in love with them.  Denali did not disappoint. These are the places that fill my soul.

    Day 99 on Mt. Sheridan, 13,748'. Still 1,900' of continuous snowboarding out there. Can't wait for more shredding this weekend!

    This was the view from my sleeping bag this morning — full moon setting, sun rising.
The time around the solstice is special, and full moons are, too. I try to celebrate as many as I can.
I had an idea in my head to ski up Mt Bachelor and camp on the top and then ski down in the morning before heading into work. I thought maybe I’d do it on the solstice later this week, but the weather/temps were better earlier this week.
I packed some things yesterday before heading out to climb and play by the river with Aaron and the dogs, unsure I wanted to do this little micro adventure on Sunday night, just one day after running a 50k.
But at 8:14pm, Riggs and I found ourselves heading away from the car with skis and sleeping bags.
The moonrise was amazing and we topped out as the last red/orange faded from the sky. We camped in the open right on the summit, a little sheltered from the wind.
It was cold and I’m not sure either of us got a whole lot of sleep. Every time I opened my eyes, the moon was shining brightly, lighting up the snow around us.
This morning, I woke up to pink light on the snow and the moon slowly descending in the sky. I dozed in and out for an hour and a half, peeking out at the moon as it dropped lower and the morning light took hold.
Riggs and I emerged from our finally-warm sleeping bags and I watched Riggs run around on the snow, greeting the morning with a freshness I did not yet feel.
The sun was already warming the air as I packed up our stuff and stepped into my skis. The bowl was just soft enough to make the turns fun, though I had to take a couple breaks on the descent to shake out my tired legs.
I’m a little drowsy today but I have a mug of coffee and I feel refreshed in a way that sleep alone cannot achieve.
Happy almost-Summer!

    Well, I definitely wasn’t expecting to spend June 9th skiing through 10” of fresh powder with songbirds singing and a springy green valley below... but it sure was fun.
