Here are Rusty's greatest hits from vacations past. Click on the pics for the high res versions. Links to more ski pics at the bottom of this page.

Alaska - Heli Skiing and Boarding with Chugach Powder Guides

If you look closely, you can see two dots. We kept separated so if an avalanche happened, only one person would get buried.

The guides (on left), ski with lead weights on their back to make your skiing look great.

The blue stuff is a glacier, as seen from the helicopter.

All these people fit into the snow cat.

The Rusty 

That's Turnagain Arm in the background.

Rusty finished the 8's on the right hand side.

The guides dig a snow pit to check for avalanche danger. They said "There's 3 weak layers. Ok, let's go!"

Untracked powder, smooth as silk, so much it was almost boring -

Some would say that heli skiers are "over the edge".

Kim Reichhelm checks out a run.

Some of the best extreme skiing in the world is in Alaska.

Now that's a lot of peaks!

No, they did not let me drive!

So much powder, so little time.


Portillo, Chile
Pow Pow! Cruiser run. The Va a Vient - The wickedest poma lift in the world.
Incredible views in Chile - the sky was a real dark blue.

This is the view from the hotel room at Portillo.


Steamboat, Colorado
Steamboat has some of the best tree skiing anywhere. Some of the best shots for first time tree skiers are between trails. 

View from the Last Chance area (I think)

The exit from the extreme terrain

Look at the spaces, not the trees.

This is foot deep powder.

Can you say "cruiser"?

A great view of the valley.

Schweitzer - Steep and Deep

The groomers were running right to the last minute before opening.

The groomers finished product - courderoy!

Sergei can't wait!

A little guy goes rock climbing.

The Whitetail trail map is not that tough to figure.
