My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. Also a snapper of many photos. Check out my instagram for short visual trip reports and such.

additive layering
Usually if its cold enough to wanna wear down at rest, I'll be wearing a breathable windshirt on the move. To keep things simple, I mostly just add and take away one layer at a time (additive l...

ski layering
For those temps I would definitely want more warmth then just an alpha with shell over it. For spring ski trips, it might be enough, but I'd still want to supplement it. I bring a UL winter...
