This winter some of our images are being used in some HUGE ways in Seattle, Portland, Chicago and Minneapolis. Here is a little background on the images shown below. It was a super cold crisp bluebird inversion powder day at Whitefish Mountain Resort in Whitefish, Montana when Zak Anderson and I hiked up to get this image of Zak making a turn in perfect snow with the inversion line and sun dog. The only way to make images is to get out & stay out! Thanks again Cold Avenger for helping me stay out longer! Zak is rocking Montana Ski Company skis and Mystery Ranch Backpack pack.

One of our images was picked up by Mystery Ranch Backpacks of Bozeman, MT for an ad in the regional magazine Bomb Snow spring 2010 issue. The photo was taken at Whitefish Mountain Resort. These packs are top quality handmade in Bozeman. Designed by Dana Gleason who started Dana Design.
One of our GlacierWorld.com photos taken at Whitefish Mountain Resort showing rider Rob Phillips of Salt Lake City on a powder day has been used in a Travel Montana ad on Snowboard Mag website for the winter campaign.
For what started out as a dry and warm fall quickly turned in to deep days in the mountains. It started snowing the first week of Dec. 2008 and hasn’t really let up. We have more than 155" season to date storm total with a base of 81" on the summit of Big Mountain on Whitefish Mountain Resort in Whitefish, MT. All that snow has been fun to play on. Some of our backcountry trips have been on hold with current snow pack conditions.
Below are some photos from the past week and holiday season at the resort. Enjoy.
Amy playing around in the powder on East Rim.
Amy getting popped up from a log, fun times.
Josh plowing down Whiteys and wondering why he moved to Iowa.
Josh’s first four runs this morning were all first tracks. It pays to know locals.

Beth loving the powder and blue skies.
Amy hoping she doesn’t hit the photographer.
Beth can’t get enough of that fresh snow.

Now I can finally check of my Endless Winter 2008. The year I skied every month within 75 miles of my house. More like 67 miles, just need to break out the GPS to see my final mileage. I may have started something here… skiing every month. Why not go for 2 years? I have a friend Dan’l who has skied 120 months strait around the world. I’m just going for the local aspect of it. I’m at 13 months now and building. Another side note is I hit my year of skiing and year of practicing hot yoga 6 days a week at the same time ~ Namasté.
December was completed Sunday night with a skin up the resort and ski down. Then come Tuesday it was with the help of these nifty little things call chair lifts. It has been over 8 months since I last road one to ski. I have had no problem making some early season groomer runs on the backside of my local mountain WMR Whitefish Mountain Resort . Those deep powder days will soon come. We got a late start to winter here and I’ hoping for a few more feet to fill in the rest of the resort and backcountry.
Below are some photos from our skin up on Sunday and the first powder day at WMR on Dec. 10, 2008 showcasing telemark skiers Erick Gelbke, "Big" Dave Erickson and Marc Fredrickson on snowboard.
Amy, Kim and Sonny skinning up Sunday night.
Erick found a nice line with 5" of fresh snow.
Big Dave freeing it, almost a face shot.
Dave and Erick wondering who will go first.
Marc said he loves his new snowboard. I bet the new snow doesn’t hurt either.
