Which aspects of mountaineering and backcountry sports are of most interest to you? -- (Hiking) (Backcountry Skiing) (Ice Climbing) (Rock Climbing) (Backpacking & Camping) ?

Backpacking, hiking, backcountry skiing.

What is your level of mountaineering experience or other backcountry skills? -- (Novice) (Beginner) (Intermediate) (Advanced) (Pro)? (Feel free to add some specifics):

Intermediate. I know what i don't know and respect the mountain.

What is your greatest achievement in the the mountains as of today?

4 day trek in Andes; at #26 of 48 4k footers in NH

What is you "next" greatest goal? Touch some summit? Backpack a trail?

Kilimanjaro 2014. Complete NH 48 4k footers way before that.

What was your most epic, trip that gives you the cold sweats in the middle of the night?

Once my dog's leg got stuck between boulders in the river. I wasn't able to free him up, and i wasn't able to move the boulders. His head was above water, luckily.. I finally managed to get help and together we made the boulder move just a bit, so that i was able to pull his leg out. I counted my blessings that day! It was a pretty serious situation.


I hike or ski almost every weekend up in the White Mountains. Would love to get into some backpacking and backcountry skiing!
