Sun, Singletrack, and Shredding in Sun Valley

Burnin' it up, Athlete: Louise Lintilhac (Me), Photographer: Dana Allen
June in Vermont can be a rainy time, and having grown up here, I know how bad it can be. Last year we had a dry summer so I forgot briefly what it was like to hear my roof leaking at 3:00 in the morning and talk myself into believing that road biking in a downpour builds character. This last month in Vermont has sadly been making up for all of the amazing weather we experienced last summer. Luckily, I had the presence of mind to jump ship, Arc, or whatever you want to call it and go westward to the land of sunburns and dry sinuses. I had never been to Sun Valley and my friend Berne was adamant that I experience the heavenly single track that Idaho has to offer. Having learned to mountain bike in Crested Butte, Colorado, where I lived for 4 years, I could not wait to rip through the sage brush and see the Lupine whiz past while trying to see how fast I can go without blowing up.

The future of Telemark skiing is looking pretty good! Enjoy this stylee edit from Jeremy Lato featuring the Mountain Niceness tele posse! It is always a blast skiing Ellie Singer age 9 and her brother Kapp 13. These kids don’t want coco they want to tele-shred!

Pow-cember has arrived!

It sure feels good to be back on skis! 

This winter is off to a banger start at Sun Valley.  We received over 60 inches in the last week to get the season rolling!  Town is electric and everybody is smiling and stoked!

I was lucky to get my Alyeska Jacket the day before the storm.  This jacket is bad ass!  I was totally dry while it was pouring at lower elevation and dumping up high. The Nordwand Pants performed equally well!  Thanks Mammut for keeping me warm and dry!

Enjoy this action from Sun Valley Resort from Monday.

Enjoy all the Mountain Niceness~

March Madness Powder

Seems like each year the best days come in spring!  Here in central Idaho we always get pounded with snow in March/April.  Enjoy this edit from skiing at Sun Valley yesterday.  With over 30 inches of fresh how could you go wrong.

As always I stayed warm and dry in Mammut Gore Tex gear!  My Alagna jacket is my favorite for the resort.  I am rocking the Nordwand pant which is my go to for stormy weather.

Enjoy-Danny Walton

Sun Valley Powder

Life is good!  After the last storm I got the chance to go out and shoot with my friend Karl Weatherly at Sun Valley. It is always a good time when we get out and ski! These shots were taken 3 days after the storm. The sun came out and there was lots of freshies and face shots all day long. There is nothing like making sty-lee telemark turns in the pow!!!  I love it!

Happy New Year from Sun Valley

Wow...what a winter so far! Yes "winter two thousand heaven" has blessed the west with loads of snow! Here is some follow cam from fellow K2 rider Zach Crist at Sun Valley last week. Sun Valley has been enjoying a great early season with La Nina!

As always I stayed warm and dry all day long with my Alagna jacket and pants! The Nirvana pack has been my go to pack at the resort for the last 3 season. It's the perfect size for everything you need to go bell to bell!

Peace and Powder,
Danny Walton
