Fantastic Foursome Take on the Incredible Hulk

Team CLIF BAR member Lorenzo Worster and Mammoth based Telemark ski mountaineer Nate Greenberg (co-author of Backcountry Skiing California's Eastern Sierra) have been long time friends. Though they have traveled and skied throughout the US, the reality is that they have done very little skiing in Sierra together. So when Lorenzo called Nate and proposed putting together a day of skiing in the Bridgeport area, Nate jumped on it. In the flow of their planning process, they managed to grab another Mammoth local (and world renowned adventure photographer) Christian Pondella and Tahoe based Team CLIF ski mountaineer John Morrison.

Josh Daiek Takes Freeskiing Championships at Kirkwood

Back in November I received an email from longtime Team CLIF BAR snowboarder and all-around badass Rose Daiek, asking me if I would consider her brother, Josh, for skiing sponsorship. She wrote, "Thanks for checking out Josh - he's got a sick video. He's been base jumping a lot. He's got double fronts off of Lover's Leap. So sick. If you can give him some food, great. If not, he'll try next year."

Because I didn't really know what any of that meant, I just sent him a contract.

Squaw Boys Ski The North Shore of Jackson Hole

Some people like to ski, and some people need to ski. For most of us, a few weeks of sunny weather and no precip in the middle of winter means we switch gears and ride bikes, run, whatever we need to do to get outdoors and enjoy the sun. For guys like Miles Clark, however, not skiing is simply not an option. And, with Northern California recently experiencing weeks of unseasonably warm and dry conditions, rendering the snow in Tahoe almost unbearable for those who like it steep and
