Where would you like your next mountaineering adventure to be? Is it a daydream, or a firming-up plan?

Skiing the Cascade Volcanoes on Mount Rainier

Have you done any skiing in the backcountry -- if so, where?

I grew up on the back hills along the AT, so I learned to ski in the back country and prefer it over commercial slopes. I've backhilled from VT, Maine, CO, PA, CA and Kyrgystan.

Have you done any rock/ice climbing? (Not a pre-requisite, but helpful -- and you have to be willing to learn.)

Yes, I've done some ice climbing but would like to improve upon my skills.

What is your most memorable summit? (Yes, they are all memorable... But we are interested in your mountaineering/technical experience, so let us know about that hard one!)

Climbing 6,000 ft on Mauna Kea to do a 5 minutes ski run. At least I can say I skied Hawaii!

Introduction

I love mountaineering & backcountry skiing!
