Re: Part 1 Season Edit 2016

Nice. I was wondering who made those turns in IB when I got in there after you guys. Not surprised that it was you. Thanks for the skin track out.

Re: Looking for partner to snowboard inner basin SF Peaks

Hello, Once the snow calms down, I'll probably be getting in there- I'd suggest facebooking the lonely mountain riders collective, taking their short rider profile survey, and posting into the group whenever you want to tour. Just a heads-up: There is absolutely no way you should go into the backcou...

Inner Basin-

Great fluffy and cold powder in the inner basin today! Got two runs, one out of the big red rock that separates North Core from the saddle, and the second was a foray into Last Chance Couloir. Pow all the way down- quite a ride! Powell's couloir looks like a really big line right now, with a super s...

Abineau Canyon May 11-12

Abineau skied absolutely wonderfully earlier this week!! I hike in Monday morning, got 3 runs, camped at the base of Sinagua, and got 4 runs on Tuesday. Got crossfire 3 times, Anasazi twice, Sinagua once, and one wide open west-northwest facing shot on the opposite side of the canyon that eventually...

Abineau Slide- Catastrophic

Abineau went HUGE sometime in the last few weeks. Both Sinagua and Anasazi seemed to go at the same time, with the crown starting above tree line and the runout occurring about 100 yards short of the bottom of the historic slide path- this thing's track ran approximately 2,500 feet of vert, and it p...

Inner Basin and Abineau!

IB was tasty on 3/2. Got in there in the afternoon once everyone and their mom decided to invite themselves up onto the resort. Took two runs into IB, one on north core ridge and the other on skier's right of the saddle. Temptation was also glorious on the way back home. Abineau was awesome 3/8 and ...
