From and FKT on the Ptarmigan Traverse, to 61,000 vertical feet skied in one day, Mike Foote is as skilled as he is at home in the mountains.
But here's question: What's the dumbest thing you've ever done?
"My first time skiing I didn't have skins, so for traction I duct-taped pine boughs to the bottom of my skis. Then I fell into a cornice overhanging a 1,500' cliff."
Listen to Mike's humble, humorous, and thoughtful recollections of a life well-lived in the mountains and deserts.
What is the coolest thing you've ever done?
"Maybe coaching HS Cross-Country. Or working for a local land trust saving the places we love."
