The Firn Line

Backcountry Master: Noah Howell

Episode Summary

On today’s episode of The Firn Line, we’ll get to know legendary backcountry skier, Noah Howell. • In an epic career spanning over 20 years, Howell has established himself as one of North America’s most prolific and enduring backcountry masters. From early life-changing experiences in the Alps, thru a decade-long run of creativity at the helm of the infamous Powderwhore Productions, to a span of big mountain descents in Alaska, culminating in a recent ski decent of Mount Hunter’s west ridge and Ramen Couloir, Howell continues to push the limits of what’s possible in the mountains. • I recently got a chance to sit down with Howell, for an engaging conversation about his life in and out of the mountains. We started our conversation by talking about his roots in Utah, and how that led to his first experiences skiing in the Wasatch, and eventually to the bigger mountains of Alaska. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Music: https://www.timeaston.com https://www.evanphillips.net •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Links: https://www.noahhowell.com https://www.evanphillips.net https://www.thefirnline.com https://www.patreon.com/thefirnline •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Sponsors: www.alaskarockgym.com www.moosestooth.net www.hoardingmarmot.com www.behindthesuntherapeutics.com
