I have to say that me and Steamboat have pretty good timing together. Two years ago, when I last was able to ski outside the immense flatness of the South Pole, I had a week long ski season which just so happened to be the best week of an overall incredible year for Colorado. This year, snowfall in central Colorado has been hard to come by. At least until I arrived here a week ago and two feet of the dry Colorado powder started falling steadily throughout the week. Kurt and I have been having a lot of fun playing around with a new helmet cam and taking some footage. I've uploaded two short videos so far on to my video site Vimeo and am collaborating with my brother on the original music.

If anyone is looking for great new fiction, I highly recommend going to www.ottrising.com and checking out the fantastic new story unfolding there. It's aimed at the young adult audience, but full of vibrant setting, mystery and action enough to hook any adult. Just beginning the second "season," it's released in short chapters three times a week and each Monday I get excited about starting the ride back up. Highly recommended.
It's been a long time coming, but I've finally begun working through my massive catalog of photos built up over the past incredible year. I'm finally able to look at my Antarctica pictures with the fond memory of distance, while the New Zealand photographs are astounding me in their first viewing on a screen larger than the 3 inch LCD on the back of the camera. I wanted to put some up on the blog but am still working on some possibilities for them in the future. So, sorry for the watermarks...
