What hill is that in the background? It's got a very east coast look to it
Northstar, maybe they were near Sugar Bowl?What hill is that in the background? It's got a very east coast look to it
You are correct on Northstar in the background.Northstar, maybe they were near Sugar Bowl?
There’s another mtn in the background? I’ve been obsessing over that ridge line.You are correct on Northstar in the background.
Stocked for you and Iceman. Headed up this past Tuesday for what was supposed to be our last storm. 3” had fallen at most the night before and when I get down to the chair, lifty Bros tell me its too windy and they’re shutting down for the day. One lift had already tripped a tower switch. Then I got a sweet ride on a snowmobile back to where I parked.A storm cycle for the books and a dream come true for the late season lurkers and against the grainers like myself! Well it is mid April, but in general this one compared to any storm cycle I've ridden mid winter and even better cause it was just the core shreders. No crowds and all smiles, laughs, and good vibes a flowin. Felt like the 90s kinda.
Rode last 3 out of 4 days and don't know where to start. Absolutely dumfounded. Best 3 days of snowboarding I've had in many many years and likely the last powder days of my 40's. From storm riding to semi bluebird yesterday it was consistently waist deep. Mined untracked lines in all my favorite off piste zones which are steep gullies spines and chutes in mostly mature forest areas that open to occasional glades.
Sunday rode with the wifey. Semi stormy with sun breaks and shredded some zones she hasn't been in years and she did great. Monday rode with my 2 fav shredding hommies. Was nukeing and free refills kinda day. Wind was whipping on the ridge and vis was limited. 1st drop into a bowl had to point it and hold my line floating through some deep ass cold snow. Total vertigo feeling and felt like I was floating in a white vortex and well I was! Had to take Tuesday off to work and rest body. Yesterday the sky's parted and it was on like tron! Was a little late to get in line after taking a work meeting in the lot, but caught that lull after the 1st am load and came in hot into the bowl full speed laying down a few big turns throwing smoke and pulling into the white room. Buddies were on the lift hooting and hollering as I came down, which I eventually caught up with. A bestie who I've been riding with since 92! Felt solid and confident and flowed all over the mtn. Some highlights were pointing it straight through a drainage line flowing, floating, and just rolling over pillow covered rocks with just a speed check turn here and there. Or coming down a steep tree line syncing back side slashes with back hand down just leaning in to the slope balancing on just the tip of the tail, almost out of control, but in control : ) getting engulfed with every slash. Put the 53 Orca through the paces, the shortest deck I've ever ridden, and it man performed! Anyways.... long winded report. Body is trashed, but snow stoke is high rn!

Heard the reports..... Last day of the season at Shredbros was a pow day and the annual pond skim went down in a semi blizzard Wow! Maybe I should of booked my surf trip a few weeks laterEpic pow day yesterday (17" in the past 2 days and cold blower conditions with light wind and alternating between dumping snow and periods of sun) at my local on MAY FUCKING EIGHTH! It's bluebird up there today so the upper half of the resort opened (it was socked in and closed yesterday) and I will undoubtedly have massive FOMO looking at Instagram but yesterday was amazing.
Haha you forgot to buy twintips!Already had boots but after getting the shaft on rental skis a bunch past season and almost dying after a binding released in the middle of a run I decided to get my own skis. What do I do with this stuff?
