This is the latest and greatest, the 2016 YLE. When I designed this ski with 4frnt I had in mind something that would handle higher speeds, bigger airs, yet be playful enough to shred the trees and spin around on local hips and lips. This is probably my favorite art I have had on the ski since it’s inception. See more here

Came across this blog mid last winter. This guys is pretty on point when it comes to Wasatch weather. Give it a check and a bookmark this winter. Seems to be pretty dialed with the local atmosphere of Utah.
YLESKI 2015 is the culmination of Wiley Miller’s 2015 winter season. Shot almost exclusively in the Columbia Mountains of interior British Columbia. The winter of 2015 was adverse in many areas of North America. Finding good conditions remained challenging. Patience, and persistence was key in finding safe, suitable snowpack. This is the second installment to the YLESKI series, highlighting the best of Wiley Miller and his approach to snow.
“I set out this winter to spend my time exploring new mountains, scouting lines, and finding natural airs in the terrain to work with. This season ski touring, route finding, and line selection were set in priority above building jumps and locating step-downs. It was an alternative I decided to take when the snow started to fly in November of 2014. I set out to do more skiing and less building, setting up-tracks versus cutting blocks for jumps. The sport becomes so dynamic when you’re working with larger terrain. It’s challenging, I love the experience, and constant education that takes place out there in the mountains.”

It’s been another hot summer here in Utah. After returning from a trip to the ocean in May I was in need of some high energy activity to keep the blood flowing while Tatum and I spent our summer months in Salt Lake City. I had always heard of the abundance and quality of climbs in the canyons just outside the city and took it upon myself to get on the rock as much as I could this summer.
During winter down days, we sometimes pull out the chess board and get through a couple games while we wait for conditions to optimize in the backcountry. Like chess climbing is a mental game, planning each move before executing and thinking one or two moves ahead increases chances for success. On the other hand climbing is very physically demanding, another reason to get out and enjoy the outdoors while doing good for the body. The mental, and physical challenges combined with outdoor adventure has grasped my attention this summer and for summers to come.
