Behind the Shot: Murren, Switzerland

Posted by piphunt on November 19, 2013 in Adventures of Pip

It was midday in Murren, Switzerland, and things were heating up. The April sun was shining and the new snow was rapidly turning into mashed potatoes. We stood at the top of the Schilthorn, scouring the tracked out slopes for the last glimpses of untracked pow. Our improv dance parties, 90’s pop songs, and heel […]

30 Days of Awesome!

Posted by piphunt on June 11, 2013 in Adventures of Pip

Today was the first day of my 30 Days of Awesome! ok, so maybe it was yesterday (which was awesome!) but I completely spaced it until I saw Nicole’s post noting the inaugural day of the annual blogging event. Doh. Sorry for playing!   I first found out about the 30 Days of Awesome when […]

Ski Salt Lake Shootout: Take 3

Posted by piphunt on February 21, 2013 in Adventures of Pip

  No matter what the conditions, the Visit Salt Lake Shootout produces incredible images every year. It is also one of my favorite events of the season. This was my third Shootout and this year I teamed up with Mike Schirf, Marcus Caston, and Ty Peterson to attack the Wasatch.   The Shootout is a […]

New Traditions

Posted by piphunt on December 23, 2012 in Adventures of Pip

This year marks a different Christmas for me. It’s the first time I won’t spend it with either mine or Jamon’s family, and it’s left me a little bit sad. Christmas with my family is all about the food. My mum spends weeks prepping sides, making mince pies, and planning our meal. There are staples […]

Fuel in the Mountains: Gu vs. Hammer Gel

Posted by piphunt on July 12, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, skiing

When coach suggested that Hadley and I do a little experiment between Gu and Hammer Gel during our trip in the Tetons two weeks ago. I wasn’t exactly excited by the prospect. This should come as a surprise, I love food. I know. Weird right?   The rules: Nothing but Gu during the duration of the […]

Pushing the Summit

Posted by piphunt on June 29, 2012 in Adventures of Pip

Heading into the backcountry to ski spring/summer conditions, with a brand new partner, in a mountain range you’ve never entered is a generally a bad idea. Climbing and skiing partnerships are earned not forced. Hadley and I haven’t known each other long. We’re both Marmot athletes, but last weekend’s adventure in Teton National Park was […]

Another Home

Posted by piphunt on June 7, 2012 in Adventures of Pip

Whenever I say I’m going home, my friends always laugh at me. “Home?” They say. “Which home?”   Where exactly is home? Is it where you grew up? Where you’re parents are? Is it where you just moved t0 or where you came from? Is it just a physical location or an emotional location too? […]

Chamonix part Deux

Posted by piphunt on May 18, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, skiing

Well, that went by in a hurry, one moment I’m skinning up the Argentierre Glacier with Crystal, Brian, and Ashley, the next I’m packing my car and moving to Jackson. Phew, I’m glad I’m settled in one bed with my suitcase unpacked.   After our adventure on the Rhone Glacier, we had more down days […]
