Put Your Feet in Unexpected Places. We'll Help You Get There.

All trips for 2018/19 have been cancelled due to Kate's health. Please stay tuned for more info.  

With Venerable Gyalten Lekden

Our lives are full of habits, which we have been picking up since before we can remember, and many of them are invisible to us. These habituations can be preventing us from experiencing genuine happiness, and yet we come to believe them to be the status quo, something to be practiced, not avoided.

This weekend offers the opportunity to use Buddhist wisdom and experience to disrupt all the aspects of our lives that are holding us back and discover how to be happy, even in the midst of difficult times.

This trip is for confident powder skiers in steep, double black type terrain. Learn to rip deep British Columbia powder, pillows, drops, rolls, and there's always a workaround.  Chatter Creek is a family run remote lodge outside of Donald, and the most fun terrain I've ever skied. The entire season for Chatter sells out every year, and we are VERY fortunate to have spots at this awesome location! This camp is sponsored, swag and prizes galore. Six seats only, this camp WILL SELL OUT!

Coming soon!
We rented an SUV, watched the weather, and road tripped it from Valle Nevado near Santiago, Chile, to Nevados de Chillians (home of some very famous Thermal Hot Springs) and beat an epic storm by about two hours as we rolled into Las Lenas. Pinned in the hotel for two days, we skied the deep, fresh pow in some of the gnarliest lift-served terrain we've ever seen for the next eight days straight. On the way back to Santiago, we stopped in Ski Portillo to say hi to friends. A truly epic trip!
Sayulita is a wonderful small fishing town which has turned into a surfing haven. My family and I spent almost three months during the monsoon exploring the area, making friends, and connecting with the locals. It was so great that my little sister decided to stay permanently! This is the future home of a yoga/surfing group trip.
I spent the spring of 2016 skiing in the back country around Aspen with my friend Geoff Stump. We filmed the first episode of a show called Home Cooked Skiing, which you'll be able to check out on the web this winter.
Two friends wanted to experience the ultimate Japan powder trip... and we got a little bit of everything! Japan is truly unique, wonderful, exotic, and challenging. But totally worth it.
I'm fortunate to be a coach for Thom Crum's Magic of Skiing every season. This is truly the most inspirational week on skis for me. Thom is an Aikido Grand Master and a legend in Mental Performance. While I was going through my own National Alpine Team Selection training, Thom worked one on one with me as I struggled to connect to purpose, find my bliss, and perform under enormous pressure. Every one of those lessons I carry over into my own coaching, in this very special immersive week, and in every experience I share with guests.
A two-day workshop for yoga teachers and advanced practitioners. Students learned to:
  • Apply bodywork and massage techniques to practitioners in real time, while they are practicing
  • Discover the art of touch and the five types of movement, and
  • Help even advanced-level practitioners safely go deeper into their postures.
The system: I developed Yoga Bodywork Adjustments while assisting Saraswati Jois in Mysore, India. I found that applying massage techniques in yoga adjustments was the key to consistently unlocking practitioners' bodies.

Ever wonder how my clients and I come up with ideas for great adventure ski trips?

My mountaineering partner and I travel the world in the off-season, searching out unique experiences and places that our clients will love.

This year, we discovered that:
  • There are skiable volcanos all over Southern Chile and Argentina
  • Many of them have lift access to mind-blowing touring
  • Every trip should center around the location of the closest hot springs

The focus of NASTC (North American Ski Training Center) is for skiers to push, learn, and hone big mountain skills with former PSIA Alpine Demo Team members all over the world. This year we went to the Corralco ski area on Lonquimai volcano in Malalcahuelo, Chile.

I joined the group for their last four days of skiing and climbing. I then spent the next six weeks scouting for future NASTC adventures in South America (exciting news about this coming soon!).

A fun bonus was a little-known and unforgettable hot springs.

Every four years the National Alpine Teams from more than 32 countries get together at the International Skiing Congress for Interski. If that sounds like one big meeting, it is. But it's also a great way for skiing professionals from all over the world to connect and share ideas.

My favorite parts:
  • Attending a clinic given by the Austrian demo team
  • Discovering methods for improving communication in ski teaching
  • The fact that we were only 1000 km from Antartica.

Because heli skiing!

This summer in Valle Nevado my client got to ski some of the longest, steepest, most beautiful terrain he's ever experienced. With condors circling overhead.

Some special things about heli skiing in Valle Nevado:
  • Small, friendly groups of four skiers
  • Lots of individual attention
  • The ability to ski almost wherever you want, with drops up to 15,800 ft.
  • Extremely experienced pilots and guides

One of the best weeks of skiing of our lives!

Located at the spectacular SkiPortillo, Chile with 10 feet of fresh snow and only 200 people on the mountain, my client got to ski in small groups with the following skiing superstar coaching him:
  • Ingrid Backstrom
  • Mike Douglas
  • Olympian Wendy Fischer
  • Chris Anthony
  • and Jess McMillan
Camp of the Superstars generally takes place the first week of August each year.
