I love long cross country trails and I do the best at climbing. Although when I ran the Downieville Classic course in CA, it was the most beautiful long downhill trail I'd been on. Of course, you had to climb a bunch to get to it.
The Tahoe Century ride was pretty much my ideal ride. Lots of climbing, lots of beauty and long open roads.
I love finding stashes of powder and trying out my skills in the bumps and trees but the most fun is setting up backcountry ski trips. I'm Avy Level II certified.
I spent most of my time climbing in California from Echo cliffs to Tahoe to Yosemite's finest granite climbs. I love trad climbing and my best days are on long routes of Alpine climbing in the backcountry.
