Sverdina.com is simply a place to share stories, pictures and video clips of experiences made while participating in my favorite recreational activities - snowboarding and mountaineering. Yes, there's also a smattering of other activities in and amongst the content here, but I really do strive to stay true to the theme. In any case, this site is intended as an archive of my experiences in the great outdoors, whatever that may be, preserving the many memorable moments for posterity.
Be advised that the information presented here is for casual consumption only and should not be used as a formal guide in any way. I obviously cannot guarantee that my reports are all 100% accurate or that conditions will always be the same as I have described them. Always exercise discretion in the mountains and never substitute your own observations and judgement for anecdotal information obtained on the internet.
In addition to the menu buttons above, a good way to find information on this site is by querying my trip report database. This feature enables one to generate a customized list based on criteria which include but are not limited to name, location, season etc. To query this database, click here (new full-size window will open).
Alternatively, use the text box below to perform a Google web or image search, but note that the results will only reflect what and when Google last indexed and are therefore not too terribly current. Otherwise click what's new above for my most recent updates. And finally...thanks for visiting and enjoy!
