First, my apologies to all who usually follow this site and have been disappointed by the lack of fresh content. It has been the kind of winter we all dream of…epic powder days, countless summits, and great partners. Unfortuantely our seasonal office in France, while sporting a gondola that took us up 7,500 vertical feet to a backcountry paradise, lacked a good internet connection so communicating became nearly impossible. This will not happen again! We are back in the States now and prepping for a busy summer of rock climbing and big mountain expeditions.
