About the Authors
Jim Barnes is a corn-fed Midwestern kid who discovered the West in his twenties and now can’t imagine leaving the mountains. A jack-of-all-trades, he has yet to master anything but keeps trying. Mountain biking was his original mountain sport; and since then backcountry skiing, snowboarding, and Nordic skiing have filled the void in the winter. Rock climbing, mountaineering, and cycling keep him busy during the summer. In a nutshell, he loves to play.
Nate Greenberg is a skinny computer nerd with an engine like a Mack truck. Growing up in Southern California, he spent plenty of time in and around the Eastern Sierra, and moved to Mammoth Lakes immediately following college. His time is divided by the seasons into his two main passions of skiing and climbing, though road biking plays an ever increasing role in his summer routine.
