Over the Hill and Picking Up Speed

Team CLIF skiier Donny Roth sent us this report from his recent trip to Glacier National Park where Sweetgrass Productions is shooting for its latest film.  Donny had a chance to ski some amazing lines and ruminate on being the eldest member of his crew.  The fantastic images are courtesy of Ben Sturgulewski of Sweetgrass Productions.  Be on the lookout for the new film in the fall of 2013 - it should be another stellar celebration of winter.

I remember one summer, long ago, my

CLIF Kit: Jeremy Jones’ Further Unplugged

With the constant physical demands of bottom-up approaches, Jeremy Jones (Team CLIF Bar) knows that reliable fuel is just as important as reliable equipment.

Check out this episode of Further Unplugged and get a better sense for what's going into Jeremy's pack (and body) on his epicly

Everest!

As the conversation unfolded, Hilaree shared with me the plan. 6 North Face athletes (Cory Richards and Hilarre O'Neill both being CLIF BAR Team members) were set to

Mighty Fine Tree Skiing

OK, I know what you are going to say – “if I hear one more thing about that Josh Daiek kid, I am going to lose it!”    What?  Two posts in two weeks is too much?  Well, sorry.

Now that Josh has some downtime after crushing the Freeskiing World Tour, he edited this short piece from some fine Washington state tree skiing.  Since no one here at the office really got any epic pow days, we are clinging to the last shreds of winter any way we can - and this video satisfies!  Enjoy Josh

Josh Daiek Wins Overall at Freeskiing World Tour!

Team CLIF skier Josh Daiek won the final round of the Subaru Freeskiing Word Tour on his home mountain - Kirkwood near Lake Tahoe, CA.  This was the last stop of a seven mountain tour and Josh used his local knowledge to move from second place overall to the title on the final day.  The event was held on the "forbidden Cirque" - a run in Kirkwood's backcountry that is normally closed.  The low snow fall this year left lots of rock features exposed and forced the athletes to rethink
