Surf Station: Mid-Winter 2019

Snow! If you haven’t been skiing you’re missing out. Get out there. Before the snow started dumping, Doug and Tim had a great time climbing Flume and Silver Cascades, doing some research for an upcoming goEast piece on moderate ice climbs in Crawford Notch. Their friend Nick joined them that day. Look for him in…

Surf Station: Happy New Year

Happy New Year!   We’re psyched that Tim and Doug’s piece “1927” was featured in the Winter 2019 issue of Wild Northeast. Skiing the Carriage Road on New Hampshire’s Mt. Moosilauke is one of our favorite winter outings, and Tim and Doug’s piece weaves the history of skiing racing on the Carriage Road into a…

Surf Station: Mid-December

Skiing is awesome. So is ice climbing. And between us, we’ve had some pretty good days out in the past couple of weeks. Most notable was a fantastic early-December day skiing on Mount Washington. The conditions were so good that even Mickey Spades brushed off the summer wax off his skis and joined us. On…

Surf Station: Thanksgiving Edition

Now that we’re both back from climbing trips—Tim from a bouldering trip in Alabama and Doug from a Thanksgiving trip to Red Rock—there’s no denying that the holidays are here. Christmas lights are everywhere, the radios waves are blasting Christmas songs, and our inboxes are filled with holiday deals. Our writing reflects it too. We’ve…

Surf Station: Fall’s Here!

Here one day, gone the next. Between the recent cold snap and the early-season snow, fall in the Northeast seems to have come and gone quickly this year. But despite feeling the squeeze on one of our favorite times of the year—seriously, who doesn’t love Rocktober?—we still managed to post several fall related pieces. One…

Surf Station: Late-Summer 2018

Last summer, while working with Tim on several goEast pieces about hiking Vermont’s 4,000-footers, I ended up hiking four of the five peaks (Mansfield, Camel’s Hump, Ellen, and Abraham) in a 24-hour period. Having done four so casually, it was only natural to wonder if we could do those four and Killington (Vermont’s fifth 4,000-footer)…

Surf Station: Mid-Summer Check-In

While everybody’s been hitting the links recently, we’ve been creating them. Here’s a quick recap of what we’ve been up to the last couple of months. Read on to get over those Monday morning back-to-work blues. For starters, we’re psyched that our “‘Sup With Island Climbing” piece was featured in the summer issue of Wild…

Surf Station 5/4/18

The seasons are changing and so have our writing topics. Over on goEast, we’ve switched gears from snow and ice to rock climbing, peak bagging, and mountain biking. Some of our recent pieces covered how to take your climbing from gym to crag, three New Hampshire 4,000 footers that everyone avoids (but really should be…

Surf Station 2/17/18

It’s been a busy several weeks. We posted four pieces here, with folks enjoying my rant about My Worst Hike Ever. Over on goEast, we co-authored four more pieces—covering tips for getting ready for backcountry ski season, outdoor podcasts to keep you entertained during the drive to the mountains, 52 goEast trips to help turn…
