Two weeks of high pressure and we finally start seeing some snow in the forecast. The sunshine has been great but it is time for the snow to start falling again and for once the meteorologists in the state were right! Local ski resorts around the area were all measuring around the 4-8" range for the night and so waking up to the new snow only solidified our choice to hit a great local line. A few buddies had skied it a few days prior and so this new snow on top would make for a great time to hit it. I called up Greg Hansen and he got Jodi Fairbanks to hop on board and so after I got off work from night audit we were on the trail a little past 8am. This being a nice quick line out the back door we made it round trip in a little under 3 hours. Such a fun run that 1000s of people drive by everyday not even knowing it even exists... and hey, I wouldn't complain if it stayed that way. Although on the way back to the car we ran into some familiar faces who had the same agenda in mind. Great minds think alike I guess! And cheers to the storm of the season as I am writing this it is Thursday and we got a foot overnight with another foot dropping today and another foot forecasted for tonight. All Praise Ullr!! Enjoy the pics and don't forget to check out the edit on Vimeo!
Always a great time riding this line. It ended up skiing with about 6" on top of a harder crust but it skied well enough! With about a 30 meter rap into the couloir, an 8ft wide and about 100ft long choke up top, and a tricky 6ft rock drop into a choke near the bottom, this line is sure to please! Let it snow let it snow...and I will finish it off with a pic from today in the Beavs!
