Lead contributor: Cody Feuz
- Born and raised in JH, until my freshman year of high school. Skiing since age 2.
- Skied on the JH ski club race team 6-8th grades, Wyoming Junior GS champion in 7th grade.
- Ski instructor was Bill Briggs, and race coach was Robbie Garret.
- My two favorite ski areas are JH and Snowbird, (in that order).
- Skied over 40 times in 2010-11, and average over 30 every year. I’d be out every day, but unfortunately I have to work in order to ski, (and put kids thru college).
- I feel comfortable skiing on virtually all types of snow. I love powder and steeps, but I can have fun on anything with snow on it. I have been accused of being “sick” more than once.
- I am confident on my skis in almost any situation, but I have a very healthy respect for the terrain that I get into.
Mountain Biking experience:
- Avid and aggressive mountain biker, (regular weekly climbs and rides of 2,000+ vertical).
- Primary terrain is the Ridges to Rivers system in Boise that allows me to ride from the city to the top of Bogus Basin on mainly single track and some Forest Service roads.
- Rides in the White Clouds, Sawtooths, and Wyoming Range
- Along with my son-in-law and brother-in-law, reached the summit of Wyoming Peak on our mountain bikes in September, 2009 and again in 2011. The last few hundred feet require some “push-a-bike” effort, but we rode out the entire descent from the summit. We believe that the 2009 ride is a first ascent/descent– at least, we can’t find any record of anyone else doing it before us.
- Mountaineering/backcountry skis: Rossignol Scratch BC with G3 Onyx bindings (from Backcountry.com), and Dynafit Areo boots.
- Resort and side country: Rossignol S6 skis with Legend Early Tram AT bindings and Rossignol alpine boots, (Salomon Scream 10 Pilots for corduroy days).
- G3 climbing skins, SOS F1-ND avalanche beacon, Cobra multi-channel walkie-talkies, Life-Link avalanche shovel, Black Diamond 265 avalanche probe, Camp ice axe, Grivel Air-Tech Light New-matic crampons, old school Bell skiing/climbing helmet (early 70’s).
- Mountain Bike: Jamis Dakar – full suspension
- GoPro Hero 720P helmet cam.
- In addition to skiing/climbing and mountain biking, I train with 5 – 10K runs, 5-8 mile trail hiking/running and a winter weight training program.
