oceanmang 1.18.2015 Yours truly finding #thefullnessofthevoid. This is what happens when you bring a photog or two out with you gear testing: you get the shot! Great tour over the weekend amongst @hal_v_shun @ryandunfee85 and @naterossphoto. With a touchy snowpack plaqued with surface hoar, crusts and fresh upside snow, the mountains deserved much respect if we wanted to play safe. Our group had to practice excellent communication and terrain management. All of this can be tough when cameras are out and I think we did a fine job of self-awareness and self-restraint! #nevertrustahoar #tubetime #offshore #overhead #pumping #trippleoverhead #haolelife #thewuwei #thewuwei #teamsameteam #bigdickpowderheaven #cowboypowder #letitride #hugapatroller #dachowdagood #finsout #wyo22 #wydaho #funhogging #safetymeetings #fearandloathinginthetetons #outerwearfarts #trenchtown #wypy #positivevibewarriors #tetonresidue #pleasedontfuckupmychi #tetontested 1w

oceanmang 1.15.15 With my last three birthdays spent in the park it was good to mix it up yesterday and go for a tram assisted tour south of the village. Here's @clarkoid328 booting coulies and taking names on a line I've had my eye on for some time now. Grateful to have a birthday tour with such good company on such a gorgeous day in the backyard! #bootedandfed #couloirhunting #gwehh #cocainecowboys #tittybumps #mounttetonbuttholesurfclub #becauseitsthere #powsniffer #cowboypowder #teamsameteam #chasingstrange #positivevibewarriors #letitride #tetonresidue #wypy #youhaveonelifeliveit #pleasedontfuckupmychi #outerwearfarts #hippiesagainstmonsanto #nipplechafe #funhogging #dachowdagood #safetymeetings #fearandloathinginthetetons #simplepleasures #frothingimminent 2w

oceanmang 1.8.15 CORN skiing in January?! Does it go? Of course it goes but from this angle it's hard to tell ;) @lguillaumeteton sizing up the steep and narrows half way down this pristine couloir which provided 1,500' of perfect corn snow #todayinthetetons #bigdickcouloirheaven #fearandloathinginthetetons #positivevibewarriors #thewuwei #outerwearfarts #youhaveonelifeliveit #pleasedontfuckupmychi #tittybumps #wypy #allfunk #spreadthestoke #teamsameteam #dachowdagood #funhogging #gwehh #lifepro #zencowboys #frothingimminent #chasingstrange #becauseitsthere @francosnowshapes 🌲 3w

oceanmang 12.27.14 Today began with an early start and temperatures well below zero in a maze of Lodge Pole Pines where folks get so spun it is hard to decipher up from down and north to south... Awesome! With a big snow/wind event in the forecast for the next few days @bjuanson, @pckt5 and I set out for a sub-peak of a major mountain in #gtnp in hopes of scoring some fresh tracks and great memories. With the recent weather conditions our backyard deserves a lot of respect if you wish to ski safely and like they say #thedudeabides. Option A was a CLASSIC Teton couloir providing 1,800' of steep and narrow skiing. Standing on top of the very committing virgin line, it almost felt too good to be true so we pulled out and slayed option B. Stoked to have backed off of such a high risk/reward line and save it for another day! We will be back #thewuwei #analcurry #pipedreams #tittybumps #youhaveonelifeliveit #outerwearfarts #pursuitofpowder #teamsameteam #allfunk #stokeembodied #tetonresidue #positivevibewarriors #discoshit #funhogging #todayinthetetons #pleasedontfuckupmychi #safetymeetings #dachowdagood #thefullnessofthevoid #simplepleasures #frothingimminent #gwehh #fearandloathinginthetetons #letitride #pantherblood #cowboypowder #becauseitsthere 1mon

oceanmang 12.14.14 Another shot from yesterday's walk in the park. This was taken above the crux of the first couloir we skied. I was pretty stoked to be able to get to this angle safely and snap a few quick pictures from above.. Super impressed with @backcountryaccess's BC Link Communication System and the upper hand it gave my partners and I to openly communicate at ease in the cold and snow. BCA took a huge leap forward by leaving the reactive mindset (gear and systems used once an accident has already happened) and stepping into the proactive focus which keeps our friends out of avalanches and trouble in the first place. Gone are the days of howls and hand signals when communicating in the backcountry! Thanks to the BCA Link we were able to safely ski this couloir and set up a pretty rad shot as well. End note: BCA did not give these radios to me in exchange for any social media exposure. I really do LOVE these radios and will be ordering them tonight #playsafe #humanfactors #teamsameteam #birdsofafeatherflocktogether #slowisswiftandswiftisfast #awareness #riskreward #goodchat #safetymeetings #positivevibewarriors #killingitsoftly #hugapatroller #becauseitsthere #whatwouldtomburtdo #FACETS #snowscience #couloirhunting #cowboypowder #tetonresidue #thewuwei #pleasedontfuckupmychi #funhogging #fearandloathinginthetetons #pursuitofpowder #sideboob #dachowdagood #fullthrottle #pinner 1mon

oceanmang 12.14.14 After a week long drought and some serious fly fishing shenanigans it was time to get after it today on a powder pilgrimage in the park. Gee golly gosh, do I dig sliding sideways and sharing these mountains with good friends... A snowpack mostly void of instabilities and a fresh coat of wax on the Tetons, nothing left to do but SMILE SMILE SMILE @scootsjh #pursuitofpowder #simplepleasures #cowboypowder #outerwearfarts #extendedrelease #thegiftthatkeepsgiving #youhaveonelifeliveit #perpetuallystoked #tittybumps #eaglescoutlyfe #positivevibewarriors #tetonresidue #allfunk #stokefueled #pleasedontfuckupmychi #thefoolonthehill #dachowdagood #funhogging #gwehh #theyonlylivetogetradical #fearandloathinginthetetons #linesforbreakfast #zencowboys #chasingstrange #blazingsaddles #neverbethesuit #bullfightsonacid #couloirhunting @stiomountain 2mon

oceanmang 11.11.14 I am interrupting the #blackandwhitechallenge to post a "how to make early season grass skiing look blower" picture. Here we have totally rippen skier @c_jonas throwing down a textbook over the shoulder hockey stop maneuver. This turn could make any snow conditions look ALL TIME. I also took this shot from a lower vantage point making the skier and the subsequent spray look quite a bit larger than real life. Throw in some grass in the foreground and you've got yourself a stellar early season FOMO shot you can post and feel good about ;) #wyo22 #lowtide #sharky #thefoolonthehill #fearandloathinginthetetons #whereistheholeinjackson #pantydropping #discoshit #theyonlylivetogetradical #outerwearfarts #gwehh #positivevibewarriors #pornofunk #funhogging #teamsameteam #niceguys #wydaho #tittybumps #chasingstrange #perpetuallystoked #blazingsaddles #sacrificesarenecessary #tetonresidue #neverbethesuit #cowboypowder #pleasedontfuckupmychi #pursuitofpowder #bullfightsonacid 2mon

oceanmang Picture 2/3 of the #blackandwhitechallenge was taken in a very special zone not too far from the Jackson Hole Valley. With rock formations similar to the Dolomites of Italy, these rocks offer many hidden couloirs to those who seek them.. #bootedandfed #couloirhunting #spreadthestoke #cowboypowder #swiftsilentdeep #fearandloathinginwyoming #funhoggong #theyonlylivetogetradical #alwaysascending #pleasedontfuckupmychi #haolelife #gwehhh #outerwearfarts #chasingstrange #becauseitsthere 2mon

oceanmang Big thanks for the #blackandwhitechallenge nod @akmediaco Picture 1/3 was taken last Friday outside of @treyanastasio and friend's show in Chicago. The Aragon opened to speakeasy's and Flappers in 1926, in the height of the roaring 20's madness. Walking into this venue, I could literally smell the sweat and feel the energy exhausted over the last decade in this joint. So grateful to have caught this TAB show with my momma! 2mon

oceanmang 11.25.14 "Hey Adam, I bet we could get something to move if we jump on this wind loaded ridge right here." Three ski jumps later and BOOM, she slid rather lethargically as we safely watched the windslab fail from above. After we determined the scene safe we descended into the slide path and examined the crown, flanks, bed surface and slab. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to imagine what slopes, aspects and terrain will produce dangerous avalanches. In this case it was an "upside-down" snowpack, with extreme wind loading and a convex roll. Heads up! Always make sure no person, structure or road is below you. Choose the slopes you ski cut or kick off wisely friends! After this intentionally triggered avalanche we skied a very conservative line and went home to our mountain girls and 4 legged friends Remember my dudes, a shallow snowpack is a weak snowpack.. #windslabs #wydaho #slowisswiftandswiftisfast #AvalancheAwareness #intuition #wyo22 #thewuwei #riskreward #outerwearfarts #teamsameteam #offseasondiaries #tetonresidue #safetymeetings #diggingpitsforblowies #fieldnotes #positivevibewarriors #swiftsilentdeep #pleasedontfuckupmychi #avalanchesafety #simplepleasures #humbled #killingitsoftly #hugapatroller #knowyoursnowpack #zencowboys #avalancheeyes #becauseitsthere #whatwouldtomburtdo 2mon

oceanmang 11.25.14 Today was a trip! After 8+ feet of snow fell in the last two weeks, I personally was ready to get after it On top of that, I leave tomorrow for Colorado > Chicago > Colorado for some quality family time. But instead of letting it rip full throttle, we had to pull it back today because of instabilities in the snowpack thanks to a "upside-down" incoming storm. Although it wasn't what I expected, I had a great day meadow skipping with my three partners! We even managed to safely trigger a small but surprisingly wide and deep avalanche. Teton friends, as it warms up turn on your avalanche eyes and remember, a shallow snowpack is a weak snowpack! #wyo22 #tetonresidue #wydaho #thewuwei #pornofunk #readicculus #tittybumps #youhaveonelifeliveit #positivevibewarriors #outerwearfarts #thefullnessofthevoid #pleasedontfuckupmychi #allfunk #spreadthestoke #theyonlylivetogetradical #finsout #pantydropping #amongstit #sacrificesarenecessary #funhogging #slowisswiftandswiftisfast #gwehh #linesforbreakfast #zencowboys #cowboypowder #blowchunks #nothingisfuckedhere #chasingstrange #becauseitsthere 2mon
