Trip Photos | Kanab, Utah

During the Covid-19 shutdown & quarantine, few places in Utah were still open for out-of-county visitors. In late April, we got lucky, and the county Kanab is located in opened up its doors for visitors to come camp and hike arounds its incredible landscape. We loved it so much, that we brought our friends back down the following weekend. But it’s mostly due to the fact that we found the ultimate campsite right on the East Fork of the Virgin River. First Trip to Kanab Courtney and I explored Huntress Wash Slot Canyon, spent the rest of the afternoon hanging …

Microadventures | Ski Bike-Tour

Big adventures to high peaks and far off places that require maximum effort will always top my list as favorite things to do. Microadventures; however, fall at a close second. What are Microadventures you might ask? Well I guess there are different for everyone, but by definition it’s not an adventure until something goes wrong.  To me, an adventure is going out to do something that you are unsure you’ll be able to complete. That’s why a weekly run or ride isn’t really an adventure, it’s just an activity. So where does a microadventure fall exactly? Rather than extravagant trips …

Trek 920 Ultimate Adventure Gravel Bike Review

Reviewing bikes is something I’ve always wanted to do, but reviewing a bike that’s already 3-4 years old by the time I get it usually doesn’t warrant an online review. This Trek 920; however, is my first new bike I’ve ever owned. And with it being the first new bike I’ve ever owned, I cannot even begin to tell you how much I enjoy riding this bike. I’d even go as far as to say as it made me fall back in love with riding bikes. The Trek 920, advertised as Trek’s go-anywhere adventure touring bike, lives up to its …

Lake Powell & Escalante Adventures | Videos Uploaded

This fall, Court, her Parents, and I headed down to Lake Powell to explore the canyons on the lake via houseboat for nights. It was an incredible trip filled with loads of sun and and plenty of excitement! After we docked the boat for the last time, we drove north through desert country to spend the remainder of our vacation in the town of Escalante. From there we explored slot canyons and the prehistoric side of Utah! Incredible trip and even more incredible memories.

Joys of Early Season Mountain Biking and Trail Running

It’s the spring, which normally means slightly warmer temperatures and a whole lot of time skiing the amazing Utah corn snow. Unfortunately with all of this Covid-19 craziness, those activities have been held off. So instead of skis, most of us here in Park City have transitioned to wheels and runs as the south facing hillsides are drying out. With new activities, come new challenges to get into shape for. And how horribly out of shape I realize I am. Zachary KenneyMy name is Zachary Kenney and I’m an adventure filmmaker & photographer.  My passion is to tell stories that …

Backcountry Skiing LCC to BCC via Days Fork

When your friends tell you it’s gonna be a big day, and those same friends are in way better shape than you, it should’ve been my first clue. Nonetheless, we set up from Flagstaff Gully with a bunch of skiing ahead of us. The plan was to ski from Little Cottonwood Canyon, down to Big Cottonwood Canyon, where we had parked a shuttle truck earlier that morning. That in itself isn’t a big deal, but knocking out a few laps on the way was going to be where all the very really is. After climbing the sun rusted southern aspect …

The Perfect Campsite | Gemini Bridges Moab

What exactly is the perfect campsite? Is it one where the views are so incredible you never want to leave? Is it a place so close you can get to after work? Or is it so far down a dirt road, that most will never know it’s there? Well, I guess “Perfect” is relative, and what is perfect for me might not be perfect for you. But after this past weekend, I think I might have found the perfect campsite. Like anything in life, the harder something is to get, the more we want it. And that could not describe …

Backcountry Skiing Thunder Mountain (Lake Peak) | Trip Report

The goal was to ski a little known chute known as Lake Chute. Tucked away below the summit of Thunder Mountain, in the Cirque that contains both White Baldy and Red Baldy, is a wide chute. So steep at some points, you wish you brought your ice axe. But of course, not everything works out according to plan. A group of 5 of us, Pete, Kyle, Mike, Brett, and myself, all met up at the White Pine Trailhead to go over our plan for the day. Once the route and backup ski plans were set, we performed our safety checks, …

Photo Gallery | Skiing Jackson Hole

I’ll be the first to tell you how lucky I am to have Jackson Hole located within a 4.5hr drive from me. That isn’t much further than Stowe was from where I lived in Hartford, CT. Needless to say, when my two buddies, Kyle and Pete, said they were headed up there for the weekend to ski, I jumped on the opportunity. The original plan was to ski a big line in Grand Teton National Park, but Jackson was getting dumped on the preceding couple days. With avalanche danger too high, we resorted to coughing up some $$$ and bought day passes to ski Jackson Hole (pun intended). Not a bad backup plan.

After working our way through the endless lift lines, we finally reached the Thunder Chair where we spent nearly the entire day. Lap after lap, we skied the woods under the Thunder Chair and Tower Three Chute. And the snow dumping and wind whipping, we were finding deep snow all day long! Here’s some of the photos from the shoot.

Yurt Trip in Monticello, Utah

Packs of coyotes howled just outside of the thin Yurt walls in the dark, moonless night. Wet aspen logs crackled in the wood-burning stove for hours and hours as we sat around, drinking beer and eating chili. And even though the temps only dropped further and further as the night went on, and the fire slowly died off, it was all worth it to experience desert yurt life, even if it was only for a weekend. But an epic weekend it was… even though I did crash my drone. Since both Courtney and I’s season ski passes had blackout dates …
