    Episode 100: Hats off (and some clothes off too) with Jack Kuenzle on Episode 100!

    On Episode 100 of Totally Deep Podcast, a quick celebration for Doug Stenclik and Randy Young of www.cripplecreekbc.com for making it to episode 100! As usual, they bring you the lowdown on the world of uphill and backcountry skiing and boarding. Gear, technique, fashion, jargon, guests, and assorted spray from folks who know how to earn it in the backcountry. The world's best backcountry skiing podcast.  
    As Totally Deep finally notches episode 100, Doug and Randy  banter just a bit about the past and the totality that is Totally Deep. They also converse with Jack Kuenzle who recently blasted up and down Mt. Hood to establish a new fastest known time (FKT). Kuenzle gives the FKT lowdown and reveals, in scientific terms, why wearing underwear only and skimo gear was his ticket to ride. Note, Kuenzle's underwear choice is pretty ho-hum, Champion, which means this fast cat must be a man of the people.
    Kuenzle also provides insight into a training mission up Mt. Shasta, during which he snapped both skis. Kuenzle also holds the roundtrip FKT for Mt. Shasta.
    Thanks for listening and hanging in there until episode 100.

    Episode 99: Big Geography with Roman Dial and Alex Lee

    Episode 99: Big Geography with Roman Dial and Alex Lee

    On Episode 99 of Totally Deep Podcast, Doug Stenclik and Randy Young of www.cripplecreekbc.com bring you the lowdown on the world of uphill and backcountry skiing and boarding. Gear, technique, fashion, jargon, guests, and assorted spray from folks who know how to earn it in the backcountry. The world's best backcountry skiing podcast.  
    As Totally Deep notches towards 100 episodes, we bring together two observers of the natural world and ski touring partners in Roman Dial and Alex Lee. Both are professors at Alaska Pacific University; Lee teaches philosophy while Dial has zeroed in on math and biology. 
    Lee has been featured on the podcast before. This is Dial's first go. 
    If you've done some basic research into Alaskan wilderness adventures, you're likely to have come across Dial's exploits. Dial remains a proto early-adopter considering how one pieces together moving from A to B to C when it entails the encyclopedia of groveling through Alaska's tangle of botany and mountains and hydrology. From packrafting to cycling, skiing, and skating (on ice skates) Dial imagined and realized moving across landscapes, sometimes elegantly, often bedraggled, and just in the knick of time.
    I learned on fastestknowntime.com that he stamps his performance metrics as OKTs (only known time) and LKTs (loneliest known time). The link above also includes Dial's adventure CV and does not include his voluminous academic work. 
    Dial is also a National Geographic Explorer and the author of The Adventurer's Son.  
    On episode 99 of Totally Deep, Dial and Lee discuss researching the natural world on skis, gear revelations, and finding a shared passion for sliding on snow

This is a great podcast!

Doug and Randy really provide a passion and stoke powered trip into the world of Gear, Culture and News of Backcountry skiing. Also nice to get a window into the world of the Colorado scene being from Oregon. Thanks Boys!

A must listen for dedicated AT skiers

I can’t get enough of this pod. It’s a great mix of gear, adventures, and personalities in the backcountry skiing world. They don’t take things too seriously.

Doug, can we get an interview with David Goodman, author of Backcountry Skiing in the Northeast? He’s got a pod as well…

Loved the Jeremy Jones ep

On the car ride down Big Cottonwood Canyon after my run this morning I literally screamed out loud in frustration at the podcast my Trump supporting friend sent me to listen to. I had to escape. So I chose my favorite escape podcast and lo and behold politics has infected you too!

No escape anywhere! In all seriousness, I enjoyed the ep, as always. I love what POW is doing and Jeremy Jones. It’s Jeremy Jones.

By the way, Kalouse you should really consider starting your own podcast. I mean, you produce this one right? And that new DynaFit intro is hilarious. Didn’t you say you’re a climber? Maybe you could do something with that. Something to consider...Get out from under Doug and Randy’s thumb...
