UPCOMING EVENT on November 11th (Veterans Day): If you'd like to attend a Q&A session on November 11th with Combat Story's Ryan Fugit, please fill out this form (https://tinyurl.com/552ewmu5). Today we hear Part I of the Combat Story of Ray McPadden, a former Army Infantry Officer who survived four deployments that included leading troops in one of the most dangerous valleys of Afghanistan with the 10th Mountain Division and as a Ground Force Commander in the Ranger Battalion. Listeners really appreciate our interviews with Special Operators and it's easy to see why. Many listeners have asked to hear a few more stores from the conventional side of the house. Today's episode focuses entirely on the conventional side of Ray's career and fighting that his Battalion Commander at the time promised would be harder than anything he would go on to do in the Rangers. Ray's experience in the Pech and Korangal Valleys will be eye opening to many who had no idea forces were fighting in this unforgiving terrain and in these isolated conditions. Many have seen Restrepo and the Hornet's Nest and can appreciate just how difficult that fighting was. Ray and his men fought to build the positions and fortifications that would later become the backdrop of those movies and books. We use Ray's own fantastic book - We March at Midnight - as a guide to walk through the first half of his career and will pick up in part two with his time in the Special Ops community. I hope you enjoy this first of two Combat Stories and his fight in what was known as the “Valley of Death” as much as I did.

The Storm Skiing Podcast is sponsored by Mountain Gazette - Listen to the podcast for discount codes on subscriptions and merch.WhoDan Torsell, President and General Manager of Ski Cooper, ColoradoRecorded onOctober 18, 2021Why I interviewed himWe’ve all seen the signs, westbound on I-70. Ski Cooper this way. Copper Mountain that way. And many of us have probably thought some version of “that’s funny, I wonder how many European tourists mix them up and show up at Ski Cooper with their Ikon Pass? Anyway, which way to the free lots at Copper?” And that’s as much as most of us have probably thought about the place.It’s easy to overlook. Lost between the world-famous monsters of Summit and Eagle counties, Ski Cooper is mostly a locals refuge. Most people reading this have probably skied some combination of Vail, Beaver Creek, Copper Mountain, Breckenridge, Keystone, and Arapahoe Basin, all Epic- or Ikon-aligned mountains, the smallest of them more than three times Cooper’s 500-ish acres. And yet, Cooper persists. It is, according to the NSAA, the fifth oldest ski area in Colorado, founded in 1942 as a training site for the legendary 10th Mountain Division, whose alumni would go on to found at least 64 ski areas throughout the United States. Any place with that kind of history and grit was, I figured, worth learning more about.What we talked aboutPennsylvania ski culture; turning skiing from passion to career; moving from snow-draped Utah to gritty Tussey Pennsylvania to frantic Killington; the dramatic technological advancements and swashbuckling energy of the late ‘80s-to-early-‘90s ski industry; applying the lessons of monster ski areas to community bumps; why Dan left the ski industry and what drew him back in; why small ski areas matter; the intensity of running a night-skiing operation with a short season; the thrill and challenge of running big parts of Sugarbush; working under Win Smith as he revitalized the resort; the story behind Sugarbush’s cabin Cat; first impressions of top-of-the-world Cooper; leaving an East Coast ski career to manage Ski Cooper; transitioning from one of the Northeast’s top dogs to one of Colorado’s underdogs; the enormous terrain expansion opportunities at Cooper; how the Tennessee Creek Basin expansion has transformed the mountain; why the ski area went with a T-bar for that terrain; running Cooper debt-free; snow distribution across the three sides of the ski area; avalanche mitigation; Cooper’s minimalist grooming philosophy; U.S. America’s culture of over-grooming; the scale of Chicago Ridge Cat Skiing and whether it will return this year; whether portions of the Cat-skiing terrain could ever be folded into the lift-served side of Ski Cooper; the potential to increase the ski area’s vertical drop; potential lift additions and upgrades; timelines for improvements; why the frontside double is likely to stay intact even if the mountain adds another lift; the beautiful simplicity of running a ski are with no snowmaking; why Ski Cooper doesn’t play the stay-open-as-late-as-possible game with A-Basin even though they have the coverage to ski until June; Ski Cooper’s bargain season pass and its incredible coalition of coast-to-coast reciprocal partnerships; how the mountain managed to mostly eliminate partner blackouts; how many passes it sells; why reciprocal partnerships are proving resilient even with the advent of the Indy Pass; why Ski Cooper raised its minimum wage to $15.25 per hour; whether the mountain will institute a worker vaccine mandate; and how Ski Cooper will build off its record 2020-21 ski season. Why I thought that now was a good time for this interviewAs anyone who reads this newsletter on a regular basis knows, I’m obsessed with the evolving U.S. season pass landscape. In particular, the evolution of the multi-mountain pass under the giant ski conglomerates, and how independent ski areas are responding to that. Some are joining the Indy Pass. Others are banding together to form reciprocal coalitions for their passholders. Cooper is a master of the latter strategy, building a partner network so vast that the mountain’s season pass is a de facto national megapass. And a cheap one.I first connected with Torsell and the pass’ conductor, Dana Johnson, over the summer. It was supposed to be a quick-hit interview, but I was impressed by the whole operation. Ski Cooper is the definition of composure in the maw of impossible competition. Would you open a ski area next door to Vail? Would you be able to keep one open if it was one-tenth the size and one one-millionth as famous? It takes resilience, patience, and some kind of brilliance to make it as a ski area in ruthless Colorado, ground zero of the modern skiglomerate. With a big expansion behind them and vast potential ahead, I knew Ski Cooper was a story worth following.Questions I wish I’d askedIt occurred to me while I was editing this that I had no idea who owned Ski Cooper. As you’ll see in our conversation, however, the mountain has plenty of big things ahead, and something tells me that Dan will be back on the podcast at some point to talk about those developments, and I’ll save the ownership question for then. In the meantime, this article by The Colorado Sun’s Jason Blevins details the whole ownership structure. I’d also like to have talked a bit more about the mountain’s founding as a training ground for the 10th Mountain Division.Why you should ski CooperBecause why not? When a lift ticket at its six closest neighbors is roughly the price of a new Cadillac, the compromises you make on sheer vertical drop and skiable acreage to hit Cooper seem acceptable. With no crowds and a magnificently affordable season pass, this is an entirely reasonable supplement to Epic and Ikon passholders looking for a weekend and holiday refuge. And while Cooper has traditionally been an intermediates mountain with very little terrain for the freight train skiers, the Tennessee Creek Basin expansion – opened just before the Covid shutdown – adds a rambling pod of full-throttle double-blacks. Yes, the runs are short – the T-bar rises just around 700 feet – but that’s roughly the same vertical drop you get on The Dumps at Aspen, and no one’s filling up the complaint box about those elevator shafts. Add in a minimalist grooming philosophy and all-natural snow, and you have a damn fine ski experience if you go in accepting what the place is, rather than obsessing over what it’s not.About that incredible season passIn July, I wrote an extended analysis of Ski Cooper’s amazing $299 (now $499) season pass, which acts as a de-facto alternate Indy Pass/megapass. I called it “America’s Hidden Mega Ski Pass:Ski Cooper’s sprawling season pass access is also the logical end state of a lift-served skiing universe increasingly defined by the Epic and Ikon passes, with their dazzling collections of poke-through-the-clouds resorts, relentless marketing, and fantastically achievable price points. Small ski areas, sitting alone, have a harder story to tell and far fewer resources to do it. Band together, and the story gets more interesting. And Ski Cooper is telling one of the best stories in skiing.Since I wrote that article, the ski area has added several new partners, including Lookout Pass, which sits on the Idaho-Montana border but does not appear on this map:Additional resourcesLift Blog’s inventory of Ski Cooper liftsHistoric Ski Cooper trailmapsSki Cooper today: Get on the email list at www.stormskiing.com

He's the kind of leader who reveals his vulnerability to his troops and communicate with them on their level.   A native of Enoree, South Carolina, Beags commissioned in the Army after graduating from South Carolina State University in 1990 as an infantry officer. He's since had a long and distinguished career as an infantryman with stops at the Old Guard, Korea, the 10th Mountain Division on Fort Drum, and the Pentagon. In 2018 that career brought him home: he took command of the Fort Jackson, South Carolina-based US Army Training Center.   This past July, he returned to Fort Drum to command the 10th Mountain Division. As the 31st "Climb To Glory 6," he upholds a legacy that dates back to the formation of a ski-based unit for World War II.   Beags joined the 18th Airborne Corps podcast to talk about his priorities with the 10th Mountain Division, his leadership philosophy, and his Family.

Nevada is a strong Top 25 contender this year with lots of NFL caliber talent on the roster including QB Carson Strong (pictured). Both San Jose State and San Diego State will be hot on their heels. Meanwhile a new coach at Boise State has anyone guessing what they might look like moving forward. As the cream of the Mountain Division (and usually the entire conference) they too could be on the move to a new conference as dominos start to fall in the re-shuffle we all know is coming! Our picks for the Mountain West: West: 1. Nevada 2. San Jose State 3. San Diego State 4. Hawaii 5. Fresno State 6. UNLV Mountain: 1. Boise State 2. Wyoming 3. Air Force 4. Colorado State 5. Utah State 6. New Mexico. Independents: 1. Notre Dame 2. Liberty 3. Army 4. BYU 5. UConn 6. UMass 7. New Mexico State

For show notes, visit https://calwalters.me/  It is an honor and pleasure to welcome back Lieutenant General (Ret.) Robert Caslen, who recently served as the 29th President of the University of South Carolina. On this episode, General Caslen discusses his time at the University of South Carolina and recent controversy surrounding a speech he made at their graduation ceremony. General Caslen served 43 years in the United States Army. His military career culminated in 2018 as the 59th Superintendent of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Under his direction as Superintendent, West Point was recognized as the number one public college in the Nation by Forbes Magazine and the number one public college by U.S. News and World Report. Through the establishment of Centers of Excellence at West Point, General Caslen connected the operational Army with West Point research and intellectual capital. He refined West Point's leadership program by making professional ethics a priority and essential part of leadership and character development. He worked tirelessly to expand the diversity of cadets and faculty alike, and he dramatically expanded West Point's minority and women populations to reflect the demographics of the Army that West Point's graduates help lead. Working with the Director of Athletics, he revamped the athletic program, made it self-sustaining, and fielded 25 competitive intercollegiate teams. He created partnerships with the NCAA and Department of Defense to conduct research into preventing and treating concussions and traumatic brain injury that have led to significant improvements in prevention and care. He stood up the Army Cyber Institute to build expertise and Army leaders prepared for the new cyber fight. And, fulfilling a pledge he made soon after becoming Superintendent, he led a sweeping reversal of Army's football program and developed a culture of excellence through winning with character, culminating in Army defeating Navy in 2016 for the first time in 14 years, and beating both Air Force and Navy in 2017 to win the Commander-in-Chief's trophy for the first time in 21 years. Before becoming the West Point Superintendent, General Caslen served as the Chief of the Office of Security Cooperation in Iraq, where he served as the senior military commander in Iraq after the drawdown of U.S. and allied forces in 2011. Caslen held several other notable positions including commanding general of Multi National Division-North during Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Chief of Staff of both the 101st Airborne Division (AASLT) and the 10th Mountain Division, where he also served as the Division's Chief of Staff during Operation Enduring Freedom. He also has served in combat and overseas deployments in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Joint Task Force Bravo in Honduras, and Operation Uphold Democracy and the United Nations Mission in Haiti.

The pair also talk through the potential of New Mexico United's attack, but with one goal in its last three matches, question when the fruits of that firepower will be seen.

A.J. Tata, Brigadier General, U.S. Army (Ret.), commanded units in the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions and the 10th Mountain Division. His last tour was in Afghanistan in 2007 where he earned the Combat Action Badge and Bronze Star Medal. He is the bestselling author of the Captain Jake Mahegan and Threat Series. He has appeared as a foreign policy guest commentator on numerous outlets, including Fox News and CNN.ABOUT HIS BOOK CHASING THE LIONFew thriller writers today have the background and experience of A.J. Tata: bestselling author, and more so, decorated Brigadier General (U.S. Army - Ret.). His latest thriller, CHASING THE LION (St. Martin's Publishing Group; on sale date June 1, 2021; $27.99), introduces his new lead character, Army Lieutenant General Garrett Sinclair, in a tale that feels all too real in the world we live in.America is on the verge of history - the inauguration of our country's first female President is rapidly approaching. At the same time, intelligence has uncovered a frightening plot led by Iranian Quds Force Commander General Dariush Parizad, known as The Lion of Tabas. Parizad has his hands on a psychoactive nerve agent. A viral spread of this agent would result in thousands, if not millions, of deaths initially and over time.The largest crowd ever for an inauguration is expected in Washington D.C. - the perfect target for Parizad. Garrett Sinclair and his team race against time to prevent a catastrophe of epic proportions. As his team plumbs the depths of their mission a more sinister and personal mystery comes into clear focus: was Garrett Sinclair's wife murdered for her connection to the president-elect? Sinclair now has two puzzles to solve - his wife's murder and stopping the madman Parizad who continues to be one step ahead of Sinclair and his team. Time is running out.CHASING THE LION feels like it's jumped straight off the headlines of today's newspapers and landed in our laps. With all that is happening in the U.S. and around the globe, the sensation that this could be an all-too-real story never leaves the reader as you dart from page to page. The author's career in the military, especially in the global hotspots where he's led U.S. troops, lends an air of complete authenticity to both the story and the characters. A new hero is in town, at a time when the country and the world needs him.Praise for A.J. Tata and CHASING THE LION"Tata proves he is at the top of his game with CHASING THE LION, a thriller that spans the globe seemingly one step ahead of the headlines."-Jack Carr, New York Times bestselling author of Savage Son"A taut thriller that delivers blistering action and mind-blowing tension. Garrett Sinclair is a powerhouse of a hero, and CHASING THE LION is exactly the type of smart and propulsive tale that will keep readers turning pages and anxiously awaiting future installments."-Mark Greaney, #1 New York Times bestselling author of One Minute Out"Full of energy and snapping with action, CHASING THE LION is Tony Tata at his best. A timely read that's right on target."-Marc Cameron, New York Times bestselling author

His call sign is “Climb to Glory 7” and that’s also his Twitter and Instagram handle (@ClimbToGlory7).  He’s surprisingly social media-savvy for an old infantryman, but this is one leader who’s not on Twitter and Instagram for self-promotion. Mario is a Soldier’s Soldier; he builds teams ready to fight and his troops know he has their backs. He spoke with 18th Airborne Corps Podcast host Joe Buccino about how he got on social media and how he uses his account to pull information from across Fort Drum.  In a deeply personal conversation, Mario also spoke about his childhood in Mexico, his early days as a Soldier, and his rise to the top of the Army enlisted ranks.

Good Morning, Colorado, and welcome to the Daily Sun-Up. It’s Friday January 29th, and we’re lucky to start the day with you. Today - Backcountry use soars in Colorado, and other areas look to the Vail Pass fee model. But before we begin, let’s go back in time with some Colorado history adapted from historian Derek R Everett’s book “Colorado Day by Day”: Today, we’re going back to January 29th, 1906 when a group of Colorado ranchers inaugurated a festival celebrating their industry. The event evolved over the decades into an institution that celebrates Colorado history - the National Western Stock Show. Now our feature story. Backcountry use at Vail Pass Winter Recreation Area is split down the middle: half the visitors are on skis and snowshoes, and the other half are cruising the 55,000 acres of the White River National Forest on motorized vehicles.  The bulk of the non-motorized users are there to spend a night in a 10th Mountain Division hut, sharing the forest with adventurers who booked guided trips with one of about 20 permitted outfitters as well as day-trippers who rented snowmobiles in Summit County on their drive toward 11,000 feet and Vail Pass. Colorado Sun reporter Jennifer Brown spoke with Sam Massman, a Dillon-based acting deputy ranger for the U.S. Forest Service.  All of the mixed-use recreation is keeping snow rangers who manage the area busier than ever,  as backcountry use spikes in Colorado against the backdrop of dangerous snowpack this season that’s prone to slide. Almost 38,000 people visited at least once last winter, and the area is even more popular this winter during the pandemic. Fees, long a contentious word on Colorado’s public lands, are helping them manage the surge.  The Forest Service’s success in managing parking, search-and-rescue access, and conflict between buzzing snow-sled engines and folks who come to quietly skin up the trails has other winter recreation areas on public lands taking notice. Popular backcountry destinations, including Buffalo Pass near Steamboat and Red Mountain Pass near Ouray, have also experienced a boom in users during the past few years, but without the same budget. The Vail Pass area has become a model in backcountry management. About 95% of the funds collected are returned to the area to pay for plowing parking lots, grooming 50 miles of trails for snowmobiles, timber sleds and snowcats, and cleaning the pit toilet.  Thanks for listening. Finally, here are a few stories that you should know about today: Hundreds of thousands of unemployed Coloradans will begin to receive benefits again soon. A wave of emails went out Thursday from the state Department of Labor and Employment indicating those who are on regular unemployment will get their share first. A new report from the Colorado Health Institute indicates more than half of Colorado’s prison population has gotten coronavirus. Thirty-two inmates have died since the pandemic began. The report calls for incarcerated individuals to be placed higher on the vaccine priority list. Colorado may waive standardized testing for elementary and middle school kids for the second year in a row. Some argue the tests will be inaccurate due to the abnormality of school during the pandemic, while others say without the tests, there’s no way to know which districts are falling behind.
