Greeting friends – I hope this post finds you doing well and getting ready for 2019. More good news in the form of snow to start the New Year. OntheSnow reports:
Widespread Snow Across West for New Year’s
And while that’s good news for some, rain in the east may put a damper on the powder party in that neck of the woods. For those that are on the hill this New Years Eve and day, enjoy it. I am wishing you all fields of powder followed by blue bird days in the new year.
I’ll be traveling fairly extensively to the mountains for the first part of the year. I hope to be on the mountain a ton with pics and videos to share. Mostly, I’m just looking to get out there and see what happens. Are you on the itinerary? We would love for you to be . . .Reach out to us and let us know where you will be skiing and/or riding. We would love to make some turns with you or maybe even make a day out of it. Email us at:

We mostly received Happy Holiday wishes and Merry Christmas greetings this past week. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to you all. We really enjoyed reading all of your awesome feedback all year long. I again look forward to sharing some of your awesome one-liners, great pics and awesome videos in 2019.
The 2018/2019 winter season is fast underway. Resorts are open for business. It’s been snowing a whole bunch. Conditions are really good. Snow quality is great; light and fluffy. December is ending on a positive note, with fresh snow. Resorts are still blowing snow, in some areas, and bases are continuing to get bigger. Fresh powder will keep falling. It’s really good right now and should continue to only get better. So get outside . . . THE THRILL OF THE MOUNTAIN AWAITS YOU. #POWDER2THEPEOPL

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US
Somehow in all the holiday and new year celebrations we forgot to wish ourselves a Happy Birthday; our one year anniversary! December 27, 2018, a year ago, we dropped our first post, it can be found here :
So much of what I wrote that day still rings true today. To those of you who hopped on the bus to enjoy the ride, I can not thank you enough. We continue to be a work in progress and are always trying to evolve with the times. We started with a dream, an idea. We have no expectations, no limits and no end game. I believe if you can dream it, it can be done. We continue to strive to be the best we can be. YOU ONLY LIVE ONCE. YOLO
You shared your thoughts with us. You left your comments with us. You shared your stories and you left us inspiring quotes. You sent us your amazing pics and awesome videos; in and of the mountains. You guys inspired us to keep on keeping on when we were down and out. You helped create a community built on inspiration and love.
I hope you all have enjoyed this years content. I continue to dedicate this blog to all things mountain and alpine. If you like skiing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing, snowshoeing, biking or just about anything outside I invite you to follow us in 2019. And again, I encourage you to share this blog with all those who love the mountains.
As 2018 comes to an end, we are so very grateful for what a year we had. While we continue to strive to live our very best life, we were not always successful. We had many set-backs, failures and really tough days. But a good stable life is made up of consistent work surrounded by loving family and great friends. In that sense, we were very fortunate. We strive for so much more, continue to plan for the future but live for today. I encourage each and every one of you to live your best life. Be the best you. Start today.
Thanks for taking the time to read this blog. More great posts, pictures and awesome video soon. Life is so very, very fragile. Don’t ever forget it. We are never promised tomorrow.
On behalf of everyone here and from my family to yours, I wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous 2019.
AND YES I DO DRIVE TO THE MOUNTAINS
