  •   teton_squirrel Teewi looks pretty bony, what'd you ski? Is this recent? 1mon
  •   treefighter @teton_squirrel this was this morning. Went for the crooked thumb coolie. Stopped a few hundred feet short of the summit due to increasing heat and severe wallowing. Sizzling corn from there though. 1mon
  •   teton_squirrel Sounded like it got hot super quick today. 1mon

treefighter New @powdermagazine column is online. With the Ford-Stettner seeing constant traffic these days, how should we be skiing the #GrandTeton? Click on my link to read what @jimmy_chin, @dougworkman, Hans Johnstone and Greg Collins have to say about it. Pic from last spring's adventure with the Johnstone family. http://www.powder.com/places/back-country/the-margin-is-there-a-better-way-to-ski-the-grand-teton/ 2mon
  •   mtncorn I believe we have seen an unroped descent from Rick Wyatt many years ago and several others over the years. I think what everyone is looking for is a continuous ski descent.... 2mon
  •   simonskis @mtncorn everyone is looking to get high! 2mon
  •   treefighter @mtncorn You're right, Wyatt, Koch, Collins, Chin and others have descended without pulling out a rope. But nobody has skied the Grand yet. 2mon
  •   willowgita Great perspective! 2mon
  •   reedcham69 What a shot 2mon
  •   perpetualweekend Nice piece! I'd say they shoulda run it in print, but then it'd be ten months more before I'd have had the chance to read it 2mon
  •   treefighter Thanks @perpetualweekend! Been following your epic adventures, and enjoying your art and imagery. Profoundly inspiring. Hope to meet some day. 2mon
  •   mtncorn Hope your having a great spring @treefighter ! And I will be psyched when someone skis the gft! 2mon

  •   teton_squirrel I just skied Haystack today. Is this close? 2mon
  •   oceanmang Good spot ;) 2mon
  •   treefighter @teton_squirrel yes, close! I wondered whose car that was ... How many summits do you have so far? 2mon
  •   teton_squirrel @treefighter just 51. Will go for the project again in a couple years. 2mon
  •   treefighter @teton_squirrel Wow 51 is solid. Were you limiting yourself to winter? If not, I think you could finish it. The next month, maybe two, mountain travel will be fast. 2mon
  •   teton_squirrel @treefighter I wont be stopping. The goal is to do this as safe as possible and I took some days off when it didnt refreeze overnight. And then I am the head farmer at Haderlie farm so I will start in May. But I plan to finish strong. Leaving for Moran tonight. 2mon
  •   teton_squirrel @treefighter come out anytime to the farm. We will show you around. 2mon

treefighter Fun Facts about Wood:
That #blue stain in your #firewood comes from infestation by mountain pine beetle. The stain is a #fungus carried in the beetle's jaws, released when a beetle chews into a lodgepole, ponderosa, whitebark, or limber pine. (In the Rockies, blue-stained firewood is usually #lodgepole.) The rapidly spreading fungus serves beetles in two ways: it clogs the capillaries in the living tissue of the inner bark, strangling the tree so it can't force beetles out with sap, and it's food for beetle larvae developing in the bark in the spring. If you're a #beetle, the blue stain is the #dankitydank. If you're a #tree, I wonder if it itches.

  •   urbansawyer definitely itches 3mon
  •   jademarini Serious threat and we are seeing more and more of it out here in the nj pine barrens and related areas 3mon
  •   knevnev One positive- there is some beautiful furniture being made out of it! 3mon
