Thanks to Hotel Jungfrau, K2, and Jeff Engerbretson for making this trip happen. I’m so excited for sunny pow days!!!   [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tbp7CMyYGSY[/youtube]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Glacier Rhone

Posted by piphunt on April 26, 2012 in Adventures of Pip

A few years ago the book and movie “The Edge of Never” by Bill Kerig made its way through the ski community. Everybody I skied with either read the book or watched the movie. Somehow, I missed it.   Fast forward three years and I meet Bill Kerig as a board member at Spy Hop, […]

Where is the Snow?

Posted by piphunt on December 14, 2011 in Adventures of Pip

This time last year, I was shredding feet upon feet of instant-refill powder all over the Wasatch. If watching last weeks Salomon Freeski episode wasn’t enough to make me miss last December, skiing icy man-made snow at Alta last weekend was. Last night, Ullr finally blessed us with a smidgeon of snow. It was the […]

I can, I can, I can, I can, I can… (no thinking allowed)

Posted by piphunt on August 11, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

Something strange happened on Friday night:  as I was laying in bed thinking about the race,  I suddenly realized that I had no idea how to prepare mentally. What was I meant to visualize?Running, and running, and running like the little engine that could? For the first time in a very long time, I was […]

Product Testing: Tried and True in Bishop, California

Posted by piphunt on April 11, 2011 in Adventures of Pip

Last weekend, I joined Re and her coworkers at Backcountry.com on a trip to Bishop, California. Our goal? To review tents, sleeping bags, and an assortment of packs. Another couple days in the sun you say? You don’t have to ask this girl twice. As the next storm system shuttled into the Wasatch, Re and […]
