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 […]

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, […]

Around Le Cham: Grans Montets, Flegere, and Brevent

Posted by piphunt on April 19, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

I’m sitting here waiting to press my coffee as big, fat flakes fall into the valley. Waiting seems to be the name of the game this winter. From Zabljak, to Snowbird, to Chamonix, we’re either waiting for the skis to open or the clouds to clear. Skiers, so picky about the weather.   Yesterday we […]

Weekend Warrior Goes to Jackson Hole

Posted by piphunt on November 11, 2011 in Adventures of Pip, Where in the World is Pip?

I know, this blog post is so late it’s almost the weekend again. But last weekend was so fun that I ended up with the flu. Let me start at the beginning.   I’m not the biggest fan of last minute trips. I know, call me lame. But I like to PLAN. I like to […]

Separate but Equal

Posted by piphunt on September 17, 2010 in Adventures of Pip

Elysse Saugstad recently referred to the FWT’s decision to remove women from this years competition as ‘seperate but equal’. I inititally pulled back from this feminist referance, but after several hours of contemplation, I think she has hit the nail right on the head. It is no secret to my fellow competitors that I am […]

De ja vu?

Posted by piphunt on January 6, 2010 in Adventures of Pip, skiing

Last April, Crystal Squared (Crystal Lee and Crystal Wright), Hannah Whitney, Michelle Manning, and I encountered a little mishap on our drive back from Kirkwood. Our Thule exploded. And by exploded, I mean ripped the entire roof rack off my Exploder and disintegrated upon contact with I-80 approximately fifty miles outside of Reno. Five girls, […]

92 degrees and ski boots

Posted by piphunt on April 8, 2009 in Adventures of Pip, skiing

Why is everyone in Pheonix airport staring at my ski boots in such a funny way? Crystal, Hannah, and I are laden with ski gear hanging out at a Mexican restuarant sippin’ on Margaritas waiting for our flight to AK. Apparently it’s abnormal to see ski boots slung over a pack in AZ, but not […]
