Skiing the Dolomites Sellaronda

It’s not every ski destination that offers the lift skier a tour. Typically, the alpine skier locks in and proceeds to yo-yo an area. All good, but imagine moving from point A to point B during the yo-yo process. In the Dolomites it is very much possible to lock in, drop in, and travel. Dolomiti Superski Thanks to the Dolomites extensive ski lift network, it is quite easy to travel around the entire region on skis. …

Magazine Cover Clips

The first magazine I ever worked with as a photographer, Rock & Ice back in 1997, has finally featured one of our images on the cover of the January 2013 issue. Because of my long history with the sport of climbing, and this magazine, I am pretty thrilled.

So it went as we made our way up the Comici Route on the Tre Cime di Lavaredo’s Cima Grande – one …

2012 Dolomites Giro d’Italia

In 2007 I came to the Dolomites to ride my bike. I wanted to live a dream; to train and race in Italy. For four months I pedaled around, came to know most all the roads and passes, and made a lot of great friends. On the last day’s ride, I distinctly remember the moment I realized I had to live here. I was riding the Passo Falzarego and near the top just came to …

Runner’s World Holland Cover

No matter how many times I get an email with the line, “We’d like to use the attached image as… in our…”, I anxiously scroll down to see what image has been chosen. In our case, it isn’t “just” a photo, it’s a piece of our lives, a memory that is going to be shared and used to hopefully inspire others to get out and have some fun. Recently, upon receipt of an email from …
