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 […]

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 […]

Why Crossfit?

Posted by piphunt on January 27, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, Fitness

If you’ve been following me over on Twitter, you may have noticed that I wrote a series about Crossfit for Skiers on Ski Magazines site.  The comments section is a continuous debate about the pros and cons of Crossfit, and the ability to use Crossfit to train specifically for skiing. It got me thinking about […]

2010 Powder Day: Rage Productions Bonus

Posted by piphunt on January 13, 2012 in Adventures of Pip, skiing

One snowy April day, Angeli, Hennie, Giray and I shuffled up Catherine’s Pass for a little storm shooting. It was hilarious. Not only did I fully shave all the branches off a pine tree attempting to “tap” it, we also crashed, swam, and swallowed the deep fluffy snow. This season, I’ve almost forgot what it […]

A life lived with passion is never wasted

Posted by piphunt on January 11, 2012 in Adventures of Pip

Sometimes it feels like all the sadness is compressed into one tiny instant. One space. Even your tears can’t fit. Only nausea, shock; a squeezing choking feeling that starts in your stomach and moves its way up. It’s been 5 years since Asher passed, and yet the shocking, choking feeling can still hit. It’s less […]

Salomon TV: Alta

Posted by piphunt on December 10, 2011 in Adventures of Pip

My first Salomon Freeski appearance! It’s short, but sweet. I wish the snow was that deep right now. My segment was filmed this time last year. CRAZY! [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sLg_tHTd7h0&feature=player_embedded[/youtube]     Plus, Nat and I went for our first dawn patrol on the season yesterday. It was short, and littler treacherous, but great to get out in […]
