We are pleased to share these extreme skiing images by Jason Hummel who brought these back from recent adventures. His description is below each photo.

The day before, we were on the summit of the peak in the distance. That’s Mount Baker poking its head out of the clouds. And skiing the slope fifty feet below the summit of Mount Shuksan is Adam Roberts. He makes the effort of climbing and skiing nearly 15,000 vertical feet in two days look easy.

In this image, Forest McBrian nears the summit of Bonanza Peak’s NW Buttress in mid winter. Blowing and falling ice and snow mix in the sunlight. Conditions are perfect. In moments we’d be standing on the summit with our skis on, balanced at the edge, ready to descend what we had worked so hard to climb.

During a six-day ski traverse through the Alpine Lakes Wilderness of Washington State, Kyle Miller and I find ourselves above the clouds. For the previous two days we’d been stuck in the snow and wind atop Mount Daniel. Now we are in the midst of beauty. Temperatures would range from 25 to 95 degrees over the course of this week-long adventure. Welcome to spring in the Northwest!
