Two days ago we meet up, Himay, Ricky and I for our first turns together this season. Our object/line was Heaven Eleven, one of the most classic lines in the area and the one who frighten most spectators and skiers because off its spectacular 100 meter cliff drop at the end. Than we had Greg accompanying us. His….

Have you head about Paradox valley and about the climbing there? I thought not. But hey, what world class climbing. It’s 1,5 hours away from Telluride. There is a guide book that just sold in 1000 exemplar. Locals and people from around that knows it’s secret and come here sporadically but most likely, you should remember and….
I would like to start by telling you all, I post this for educational reasons. As some of you may have notice I haven’t posted anything in a long time. (Except for my race update a few minutes ago) Even though many things have happened it’s been quiet on my wall. This is why. One week ago….
Lets begin with friday March 29th. At midnight, by skis, Himay and I will once again start our journey between two of Colorados most famous ski resorts, Crested Butte and Aspen. We did this same race last year, then the mild weather had melted a lot of the lasting snow, so it turned in to and….
After day light saving on the 10th of March we got another hour of play time in the afternoon. Meaning it’s light until 19.30-20.00 o’clock now. So after another full day of skiing, we, Jo, Max and I went out to ice climb. It’s been really hot here lately, we have been sun bathing in….
Why do I love Telluride so much… Except of all great friends, the atmosphere in town, smart and knowledge people, the fluffy chest deep snow, the steep skiing, OUTSTANDING ice climbing… Well, lets add to this list that we have 3 h to another mecca for extreme sports, the town of Moab and it’s surrounding desert. This time a year….
An update on a previous update, that’s what we can call this. Thank you again Larry for sharing this experience. Johan Huczkowsky, who have made all my videos over the last couple of year managed to make this movie of the crapy material I gave him. It’s a plane called Aero L-39 Albatros (also known as a….
By luck it was in again, meaning climbable, usually this time a year it is too late, on the sunny hillside of Telluride warm weather makes this ice fragile due to all the sun expose it gets. Around ten to fifteen days a winter you can climb it. I’m talking about the Cornet ice cycle. In….
We have been looking at and kept track of the freezing progress for this huge ice cycle on north Ballard. It’s called “The Fang” and finally we got it done! After approaching in deep snow with snow shoes I had time to lead half of the ice cycle in daylight. It was steeper than it first appeared. 30….
…on the second day. HAHA, okey, where should I start. This would turn out to be a more adventures day than anyone (even our Moroccan guides who said they guided there before) could imagine. We walked out in the morning, there was no need for an alpine start and we looked up the valley above us…..
