This is my third winter covering the World Cup for the New York Times. From Bode Miller’s comeback to Vonn’s re-injury, here’s a recap of the season so far:
June 1st, almost summer, but I’m still dreaming of big lines and big snow–something like the one Chris Erickson slayed in Alaska’s Takinsha Mountains last spring.
Kastle poster boy Chris Davenport skied Everest’s Lhotse face in mid-May with fellow Aspenite Neal Biedleman, and followed that up with a successful summit bid with Beidleman, Telluride’s Bill Allen from Ophir, Colorado-based Mountain Trip, and a client, Ephi. Congrats, Dav and the rest of your crew!

Bottom line: Julian Carr rips and Adam Barker wields a camera better than just about anyone in the biz. The shot is from an unusual rocky formation in Utah. Get it, boys!
