Discussions about backcountry skiing— exploring style, history, gear, and what the future holds.
"You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place ? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know." ~René Daumal
"One can never be bored by powder skiing because it is a special gift of the relationship between earth and sky. It comes in sufficient amounts in particular places, at certain times on this earth; it lasts only a limited amount of time before sun or wind changes it. People devote their lives to it 'for the pleasure of being so purely played' by gravity and snow." ~Dolores LaChapelle
"Sometimes I steer and sometimes I let go, but my intent is alway to expose myself to something so powerful that who I am adapts and changes." ~Mark Twight
Kt Miller grew up in the mountains of Montana, inspired by exploring the trails, peaks, and rivers near her home. She is constantly inspired by those pushing the boundaries of mountain sports, and those asking different and sometimes difficult questions. She started this podcast to share the stories of backcountry skiers, foster community, and explore the different styles and disciplines of backcountry skiing.
