|We decided to head east, hoping for better weather.... It started to crack open enroute.|
"This is just like the guidebook said it would be!"
|There was a bit of bootpack posthole misery, heading up the ridge.. but the views were nice|
Sugar snow isn't sweet
|Chris Christie took the ridge-rot posthole to the next level, and fell into this hole!... Chris was skinning, so it was a big surprise for him that this hole collapsed and swallowed him.|
|Dave B and Jon J set up a quick anchor and fished Chris out.|
|Back to gawking at lines... The terrain is alot more rocky in this zone compared to areas closer to the coast. Cool to shred amongst the rock walls|
|Stuff looks good when it is sunny|
|I photoshopped a pic of dave into this pic of sun and blue sky , as Dave usually likes to travel with a milk entourage.|
I slid into my line
in and out
|Jon Johnston making the mountain his canvas.|
|Dave B making the mountain, his own private idaho.|
|Chris Christie enjoying the silky smooth sensation, that is skiing on powder type snow.|
Round two, headed for the ramps
|More sweetness out yonder way.|
Union Brotherhood of the Posthole Service.
|Some real nasty skinning, and bootpackery. I cursed alot.|
Can you spot the matching lunch kits.
|Dave and I wanted to drop in off the top of the nose... Another nasty rollover with a pepper dance off the top and midway down.|
We all tied our shoelaces together to see if we could get a look in.
|Its alot nicer to look at with sun... This is a shot from last year, and looks a bit more filled in... We pulled the pin as the light went flat, and opted for the skiers left ramp.|
|We skinned up for one last "bonus" run. Dave B goes further and deeper and drops into yet another backyard discovery, with a half ass sun tint on it!... Ya Dave!|
|Dave makes two precise turns before pointing his snowboard downhill , through the choke and avoiding the rocks that dominate the landscape. This is Dave Basterrechea's perfect moment.|
|Dave B getting his PHD in soulriding.|
|Mini golf land getting the late light. Sweet as mate!|
