Day 3 of @jediahporter takeover. I actually launched the winter in a decidedly non-wintry fashion. Just before Christmas I teamed up with some friends to help Puerto Rico recover, in just a tiny way, from their devastating 2017 hurricane damage. With the means, the time, and the motivation to travel and help, digging on the farm of @michmarie92 and @scolon65 was the non-mountain highlight of the last many years.

Day 2. A highlight of each year is the ice trip to Canada. In late February I accompanied a revolving team of excellent clients (including @thatonehick, shown here rappelling in Haffner Creek, BC) on a stout week of some of the world’s best ice climbing. 📷@jediahporter

Thanks, Feathered Friends, for the platform here, and for the years now of downy-soft support. I am a full-time, year-round mountain guide. Each year and season is a little different, but the general rhythm is consistent. Winter is for skiing and ice climbing, mainly in Wyoming’s Tetons and in Canada’s “Mountain Parks”. Winter 2017/18 was no exception. In the three months of “calendar winter” I skied in the backcountry 52 days and was ice or alpine climbing for 7 days. Most of that was for work. Here, a ski group in Grand Teton National Park in January. 📷@jediahporter

With this past winter coming to a close FF ambassador and AMGA guide, @jediahporter, reflects on his season ice climbing, skiing, and instructing throughout Wyoming's vast wilderness. Look out for Jed's takeover these next few days and think about enjoying the last bits of snow before it's too late!

It's been a long tough week! If you find yourself between a rock and a hard place, pull out some #featheredfriendsgear and just get comfy! 📷 @aaronstn

Our Flicker Quilt has turned into an all-time favorite for those that want something a little more versatile than just a mummy bag. Take it for a hike, use it on an off road adventure, or secure it as an underquilt for a hammock, this bag can do it all.
Thanks to @kokody for sharing this photo with us from his trip in Canyonlands NP!

Start of the new week! Don't forget to sometimes take a breather, and venture off the beaten path. Thanks to @bigrockengraving for posting this relaxing photo taken by @mountphillip

FF Ambassador, @cmurillophoto, recently took his new 20 degree Swallow bag out for a test run in Capitol Reef NP. Anyone else have a favorite spot they want to take a short getaway this Spring? Photo taken by @cmurillophoto.

@wesleyjames5 loves his @featheredfriendsgear as he fearlessly tromps through the Colorado backcountry. 📷 @wesleyjames5
