Default Mt. Baker-Whiteout!


Another day on Baker but the weather came in a flash.From sunny to boom whiteout.Forcing
zero visibility on the summitt.Faint tracks to follow, where's up, where's down.Finally gaining the ridge and the mountain Gods greeted us to sunny conditions back on the glacier.

Unbelievable the extremes you guys go for a ski, makes me laugh It's cool that you take it so serious.

I am beginning to wonder if you two brothers are twins, It is hard enough to find two brothers that hang out together all the time, let alone both love to extreme SKI lol... The odds are slim. Your interets are very much alike, it's like you're a team.

Yes it makes for an interesting dynamic!And never close to perfect!

Sometimes these mountain adventures seem a little ridiculous.

We take what we do seriously but not our selves as much, it has to be fun!

The physical and mental challenge can be rewarding,sometimes just having the views is enough to draw me back for more!
Glad it made you laugh!
