Where In The World Is FHG?

Posted: February 13th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: Life | What do you think?

Hey everyone, I bet you’re wondering why there hasn’t been any posts lately, or maybe you’re enjoying some groomers or some pow… or puddles, depending on where you are.

somwhereFor me, it has been a tremendous year. I greeted my brand new daughter into this world and soon realized that taking care of a newborn is a lot of work – you know, changing diapers, trying very hard to tell her jokes that she can understand, and cleaning spit-up out of my hair.

Needless to say, I’ve had to put FHG on hold, and will continue to do so until things settle down. I’m afraid this won’t be until the next season. However, I haven’t given up on FHG at all. I’m still scheming up some awesome timeless articles for the future and this blog will remain open for all to enjoy. I do intend on making a comeback but it has just taken longer than expected. I’m thinking there will be posts about telemark skiing with families and shredding corduroy with your kids or something cool.

With that said, if any of you want to step up to the plate and take over as chief editor, please get in touch with me via e-mail at info at freeheelgranola dot com.

Also, I have sent over a bunch of swag to BC Telemark, so be sure to head over to the Whistler Tele Fest to grab a … well you’ll see.

It was about a guy who logged in 122 tele days up at Whitewater in the Kootenays – that’s every day the resort was open. That’s dedication! Anyways, we decided to see how his season went and asked him a few questions. Check it out…

Skin Test! High Trail Evotec Climbing Skins Review

Posted: May 29th, 2014 | Author: | Filed under: Gear | What do you think?


I have been testing the High Trail Evotec Climbing Skins in Colorado and New Hampshire, and have had the opportunity to hike up and ski down in a variety of spring conditions: powder, ice, corn and even some groomed corderoy. I have skied big laps on Mt Cardigan, traverses, and short multiple laps at the Dartmouth Skiway. Here is how Evotec skins worked for me…
