Megs|Mads|Mountains // Episode 1 // 'The Ultimate Guide to Steep Skiing At Home' M+M set off on a long and extensive journey, pushing their physical and mental limits, wall to wall, as they creatively route-find their way to the final destination... the kitchen. A short film on steep skiing in your own humble abode. When COVID-19 strikes-- skiers strike back. Desperate times during "at home quarantine" may leave skiers craving adrenaline evoking adventures. Not to worry. Megan and Madison have found the fix.

MMM // Episode 2 // 'Seasonal Confusion'
Every year, spring rolls around and adventure seekers set off on journeys in search for dry trails. Resort skiing is long gone and feels like distant memory— but patches of snow still exists. Some may overlook these small left over white fields from winters past, but some are never satisfied. M+M back at it again in the mountains. Eager, thirsty, and always craving more. Forgotten footage from Spring 2020
ROGUE INTENTIONS // EPISODE 1.5 // ‘TACKLING TWO TETONS + TEEWEE’
@kristie.ryan @madisonnnrose [PART I] of 3 PART SERIES “should go down, might go up.” 11AM: With our outfits on point and big grins you couldn’t wipe off our faces, Kristie and I began our journey, carefully pedaling a hilariously tedious 25 miles on single speed bikes with 50+ pounds of gear half-strapped to our backs. // COMFORT IS RELATIVE // 2PM: After a much needed dip in the river, to rinse our butts and cleanse our souls, we began ‘heavy packin’ up the switchbacky trail until reaching our legendary campsite, where we set up basecamp. 7PM: Sat on big rocks, filtered water, ate dinner, @stephenshelesky arrives. 3:30AM: Four hours of sleep later and the sound of our alarms is more relieving than disturbing, as we spent most of the night restless in our tent-- excitement and anticipation pumping through our veins and disturbing our REM sleep cycle. 4AM: Who needs sleep anyways? 6AM: Scramble (and not that kind of scramble🍳) with a side of mountain sunrise. // TIME IS IRRELEVANT// Middle Teton, DANCE, South Teton, DANCE, a joyful afternoon spent lathering Kristie’s bum with triple antibiotic ointment, journaling, stuffing our faces with delicious @goodtogofoods, @kates_real_food bars, trail mix, and a stale, unwrapped, raw-dog-in-the-backpack-bagel. // THE SANE NEED NOT APPLY // Couldn’t have done this mish without the most wonderful, hard-core, partner in crime @kristie.ryan. I’m still up at night contemplating why someone in their right mind, especially with a massive rollerblading butt injury scab (which ended up becoming a wee bit infected), would agree to set up a Teton basecamp for days with me, never once questioning my ridiculous idea to pedal ~24 miles on single-speed-town-cruiser-bikes to the trailhead instead of just driving there-- just to make things more 'interesting.’ You are my hero. // THESE ARE OUR ROGUE INTENTIONS // SPECIAL THANK YOU: @jimmiryan closet + @hellyhansen for outfits, @stephenshelesky for joining, taking sick pics, bringing us @katesrealfood, and @sam.billiams @chrisp.gin for helping supply a last min tent.
