Re: Snow session report

^nice shots.  I'm guessing you won't be getting much surf this winter, eh joops?

Re: Snow session report

probably not...going to make it down to SD a couple times, left all my gear at a buddies house so if there's swell i'll be on it.  might bring my shit up here too though.

also, those shots, credit to mt. hood meadows staff* I'll bring my camera up in the next few sessions.

Re: Snow session report

Stoked to see you guys getting out and making some lines.  Got my new splitboard setup just sitting in my room begging me to take her out.  Any of you guys that boarded Big Bear this weekend drive the 38 and get a look at San Gorgonio?  Wondering how the snow looks up top and if its worth a trip up yet.

if you haven't already done so, you might try peeping this forum:

http://www.tetongravity.com/forums/show … Hood/page5

could help out for some backcountry conditions reports.  I'm not a member on there, but I lurk on the Tahoe conditions thread or wherever I might be heading to.

Re: Snow session report

Fuckin a!  Thanks man, I'll be lurking that one for sure.  I also just got this book: http://www.amazon.com/dp/1594855161/ref=rdr_ext_tmb

that should help a bit. 

I've got a few friends that are avy certified as well and really know their shit about snow pack and stuff so that'll help rest my mind a bit.

Hood's been pretty fun the last few weekends, spring skiing conditions yesterday. 

Looks like Bear got dumped on Friday/yesterday, anyone go?

Re: Snow session report

fuck this thread makes me want to go snowboarding. The local mountains have sucked so far this season. Hopefully they can make some snow with these cold over night lows.

Looking for a new board.

You're a stupid fuck, check some the "local mountains'" websites and you'd know they got 16 inches natural on Thursday night and hve been blowing snow day and night since. So if you're in SD and referring to bear, you've been severely misinformed

Re: Snow session report

Your a fucking idiot. Your right there has been some snow. But there is 12-24 inches of base right now. I call that shitty. But maybe by your standards that's good. Also i'm referring to Snow Summit and Mountain High.

Looking for a new board.

fuck, thats not bad. i think it goes up after the 4th. i shoulda got one!

Re: Snow session report

I rode bear the last two days. Conditions were super fun. Very very cold, saturday it was hovering around 15 at the top and and near 20 at the base. Talked to the park staff and they explained that a lot of work was going to be done this week now they they have snow. they advised that there focus was getting more runs open at this time versus more features on the hill. still cant complain. had an great time. snow was really good, and really fast.

this is socal where there's nothing but park.  don't need a big base for them to build good features.  12-24 ain't great, but it's good enough for them to do their thing.

Re: Snow session report

going up to bear this weekend. hopefully they get some snowmaking in

EDIT: was at bear yesterday and today. nothing beats midweek for fun in the park. even sunday was full of heads, glad they opened up Chair 5 though, the jib pipe is pretty sweet
