Although the house is shaking with 60 mph gusts and we have seen a few full moon high tides which consumed roads and flooded beyond the bounds of the marshes, this winter has been, thus far, a relatively mild one by Scituate standards.Read More
Very excited to share the news about Sisu Magazine, started by my ladies over at Coalition Snow to bring underrepresented fierce voices to the outdoors conversation. I cannot wait to read it and look forwards to being a contributor in Issue #2!

I am a major lover of all things winter-in truth my only non favorite New England season is spring (I know this is incorrect grammar, as well as an unpopular opinion) because around here it is mostly a long winter followed by mud season and a week of spring before summer.
But as the weeks tick down to my departure for Africa I must admit I am chaffing a bit against our weekly storms, and the indoor bike, although I owe Keith Kelly a huge debt of gratitude for the gear which has allowed me to ride many miles to high octane films in my dining room.Read More
I left the great snow of Montana for some skiing with friends in snow starved Utah, funny how snow droughts seem to flip. But great time in the mountains with friends is fun under any conditions.Read More

Although my father had been following the snow forecasts closely for weeks in anticipation of our trip (it was one of the worst seasons on record) we knew little about the resort culturally, other than the obvious. Portillo has long Chilean heritage, as it was build in the 1940’s and sits at 9,450feet in the Andes roughly two hours from Santiago Chile, making it one of the prime southern hemisphere ski destinations in July – August, which usually is peak snow season.Read More
