Skiing the Backcountry – Gotta Get Up to Get Down!

When I was a kid, I learned to ski at the Hoodoo Ski Area and the Mt. Bachelor Ski Resort, in Oregon’s Cascade Mountains. Skiing is also a popular family activity here in Silicon Valley, and we have several friends who make the trek to Tahoe or Sierra Summit, east of Fresno, on a regular basis.  Skiing the Backcountry covers all things skiing with articles, gear reviews and resources to make your next backcountry skiing adventure safer and more fun.

Nature for Kids is a great resource for parents who want to get their kids outdoors. Shawna and Damon cover a lot of ground, with topics ranging from camping and hiking, to fun crafts for kids.

When Tom Mangan stopped posting to his Two Heel Drive blog last month, in order to launch a new financial blog (CAT Stock Blog), I needed to come up with another hiking-related blog to link too. Philip Werner’s sectionhiker.com was the obvious choice, as he really covers a lot of good topics, there.  Lest you think sectionhiker.com is just about hiking, I highly recommend reading Philip’s recent article on synthetic-filled sleeping bags.
