Now That’s Some Snow!

Colleen and I talked with my brother Mike on XL Country Tuesday morning.  He called from Tulsa during the BEAST of a storm there.  Almost TWO feet of snow fell around Tulsa.  And for the first time in history, the state of Missouri shut down Interstate 70 between St. Louis and Kansas City due to a winter storm. The newspaper in Tulsa, Okla., canceled its print edition for the first time in more than a century. And in Chicago, public schools called a snow day for the first time in 12 years.

Journey Into The Backcountry – Step 4

Skiing up hill.  Yes, you read correctly - skiing up hill.  That's a new thought in my noggin.  It kind of goes against everything your body feels and your brain thinks.  But that's what you do in backcountry snowboarding.  OK - so not only do I have to learn how to ski, I have to do it uphill.  Hmm.

Journey Into The Backcountry – Step 3

The creme of the crop for Backcountry Snowboarding Bindings are the Spark R&D Blaze Snowboard Bindings.  The wonder gadgets are the piece that makes the whole splitboard system work.  They work for cross country skiing into your location, and are what makes your board stiff enough to be able to ride it once you attach it back together to snowboard down the mountain.  These bindings rock – and I now own them (enter in the jumping up down here).

Stay Warm, Look Sleek

I work and play in Downtown Bozeman – and I find myself laughing a couple of times a week at what I see ladies trying to wear and pull off in the snow.  Lesson 1 of living in Montana, it snows here – alot.  And you can either make the choice of being soaking wet and freezing all the time, or you can embrace the style of layering (and for god sakes BOOTS!)!  Don’t get me wrong I LOVE my stiletto’s and cute little clothes, but I will not leave my house knowing I am going to freeze for the night.  Here’s some tips:

Have You Ever Stumbled Upon A Treasure?

I have actually found a buck or two sometimes just walking in a parking lot.  I pick it up of course.  Even though it's only a buck, I look around quickly to see if anyone is nearby that might have dropped it.  Walking through parks I've found everything from backpacks to ballcaps, to pens.  But what this person found is a true treasure!

Jump In And Go

Do you spend extra time each morning warming up your car before you leave for the day?  I used to do that all the time.  Now I just jump in and go.

Wind, Snow And Arctic Air

Looks like we'll be ringing in the HAPPY  NEW YEAR with bitterly cold temperatures by this coming weekend and fresh snowfall.  Good for skiers, not so much for travelers.  If you plan on hitting the highway for New Years, do so carefully!
