Happy Earth Day! Earth Day should be everyday but it sure would be awesome for Earth Day to be a national holiday...If you agree, hit the link in my bio. @thenorthface #neverstopexploring

Finding the light through the dark today as our mountain tribe lost three beloved members of the family. We again face the great paradox of pursuing one’s dreams in the mountains...something that gives us so much life and yet also takes life away. It never makes sense...yet we understand.

You will all be deeply missed...
Reflecting on how fortunate we are to have witnessed and felt the greatness, talent and humanity you all shared with us. With my deepest condolences to the families and loved ones of @jessroskelley @hansjoergauer and @davidlama_official.

@conrad_anker pondering life far below in the horizontal after 18 days in the vertical.

Much of my last twenty years has been spent filming, photographing and exploring the planet’s wild places (many of them w Conrad.) In sharing images and stories around these journeys I’ve always hoped to inspire people to get outside, to go on their own journeys. I think people protect what they love and when people spend time having meaningful experiences out in the wilderness, they discover their love for these places. Hopefully that has an impact on how they take care of them. Earth Day on April 22nd is coming up. In a lot of ways, Earth Day should be everyday, but happy to get behind the petition to make Earth Day a national holiday. It’s a good start...

The lines between pro and local dark horse talent have always been blurry. Stoked to see the motivated local crushers sending the big lines this winter w hard earned skill and creativity. Here, @dubjh, who works as a wildlife guide in Jackson during the week, taking down the rowdy highly committing and exposed Talk is Cheap into Central Coulior aka Talk to Central. Epic drone work by @hal_v_sun. Keep swiping 👈🏽 to see @dubjh’s POV...😳 Keepin’ it real in @jacksonhole #haveabryceday

Putting together a show for tonight’s @mountaineersorg fundraiser event in Seattle. Found a few gems in the archives from my first expedition to the Karakoram in 1999. Twenty years later and still dreaming the same dreams...

When life hands you an unexpected gift...
Never enough days here...but gift accepted.

Simple concept - one foot in front of the other, don’t fall. @codytownsend and @bjarnesalen keeping it simple. #iphoneglory @yeti @arcadebelts @the.fifty.project

I’ve been watching @codytownsend shred on screen for over a decade. (Seeing him on the mountain in person is even more outrageous...) He’s been crushing big mountain lines for a long time. Power carves, style, stomping big airs are all just day to day for him. This season and next he’s taken a slightly different tack...to climb and ski 50 of the biggest, classic, most aesthetic and notorious ski lines in North America (@the.fifty.project). He’s not that hard to hang out w either. Good to have him bivied in the driveway the last week and to get a lap together on the GT. If you want to see what I mean by “crushing” swipe 👉🏼 or give @codytownsend a follow. @yeti @arcadebelts 🎥 @mspfilms
