Driving out of Los Angeles is an experience. There are really two routes east - take the main highways south of the San Gabriel mountains or take Newhall Pass, that separates the San Gabriels from the Santa Susana Mountains, and take the route north of the mountains. The former guarantees bumper-to-bumper traffic for 2 hours while the latter adds an 50 miles to the route but empty roads. We take the high-road. @atypicalcontent
Sunset over the Prado in Taos, New Mexico. After a week of storms where over 40” fell, the sky cleared and gave us a show.
We made our way to the mountain and checked in with ski patrol for the required backcountry passes. The mountain has a couple of high speed chairs and a nice gondola that takes 15 minutes to the top. Tom was leading the way and made the call to take some of the lower chairs, this netted us first tracks on most of the aspects we hit. The morning went by in a flash of powder. Deep and steep pitches, tight trees, and endless possibilities everywhere. There is so much sidecountry that earning our turns was unnecessary. Lap after lap we found first or second tracks on most everything. Kiroro was great.
Kiroro is one of the special places in a special place. It is a backcountry focused area with lift access, tons of snow, a consistent fall line, and endless features to ride. With time being precious, our Aussie host, Liam, hooked us up with a 22 year old "volunteer" from the States to take us around the mountain. Tomahawk Tom had been riding Kiroro everyday for the past two months and knew the ins and outs. @ridealldamnday

My morning started unlike any other. Snorting, scratching, clapping, and weezing kept on popping into my sleep and I could not understand why. Oh, that's right, I'm sleeping in a barn... someone hit the snooze button on the goats. Read on in the Blog! @atypicalcontent

Sharing Our Journeys Near and Far

In 2008 AtypicalContent met each other and started exploring the places that called our attentions. We wrote our first travel and adventure stories on the high deserts of Chile and Bolivia. And learned about 2 weeks in, that while we enjoyed reaching our destinations, traveling is what we love. Nothing has been the same for us since. We made the choice to pursue a life that allows for adventures near and far. From Alaska to Tierra del Fuego we have explored our world using every type of conveyance and shared our travel and adventure stories with our friends, families, and those around us who want to listen. AtypicalContent is the story of what we have seen, done, and experienced along the way. Hope you enjoy!

Last rays of light on a Tuesday in northeast Brazil

Kermit Panza hales from the greater Antilles. KP is a waterman, skier, cyclist, and generally a self-proclaimed man of mystery. He has had a couple of different lives thus far and looks forward to living and sharing the next ones. His bucket list is full of travel to geographical oddities, and the journeys that accompany them.

Marti Panza was born in a snowstorm and has been pursuing adventure since. Having traveled through over 60 countries MP has become a travel photographer and writer, winter sports enthusiast, and the brains behind most of this operation. Her stories include the times she traded tiki-torches and juice boxes for entry visas as well as driving a T-30 through the Mongolian steppe.

When not traveling, MP and KP split their time between Los Angeles, CA and Taos, NM where they renovate neglected Spanish Colonial Revival homes. You can also find them looking for rainbows often – trout that is- in big or small rivers throughout.
