Re: Snow session report

if you haven't seen Jeremy Jones' movie "Deeper" you can stream it for free this week on Teton Gravity Research's site here:

It's insane, and it looks like next week, Sep. 1-7, they will stream "Further" for free.

Re: Snow session report

A buddy is mentioning that they might do a trip to a resort in Japan called Niseko.   He sent me this link:

http://www.powderlife.com

Has anybody been there?   I've heard that Japan snowboarding trips can be cheaper than US Mainland trips for us in Hawaii, since the airfare cost to fly to Vancouver, SLC, Denver, etc converges on the price to fly to Narita & back.   And apparently the lift tickets & lodging in Japan a bargain.

Shin deep up in North Lake this weekend, fun lines.  CA needs about 1000 more days like that, but I'll take 'em when I get 'em.

Yeah, that's whats kept me from getting into snow sports living in the Bay Area. The drive up to Tahoe is stupid on weekends, and if there's weather, forget it.  Opted for sunny & warm head high barrels in SF this weekend.

Those pics of HB are trippy. Big hail storm?

Re: Snow session report

Amazing hail storm pics James!  You should really send that one in to the news or OC Register or something!

4" in Huntington?  Pretty sure that's a dusting...but holy shit, what a trip.

Here's my Sunday.  Summited Mt. Hood, what a fucking climb.

Re: Snow session report

^That's some next-level stuff, Joops. Very cool.

Kirkwood was outstanding yesterday. Everything you know and love about this alpine resort was in full display. You had to hike to find fresh lines near the end of the day. Sunny, fresh, and indescribably gorgeous.

Good to know.  I'm heading up this weekend.   Where were you hiking?  Sentinel?

yes its a surf site but fuck lets not forget at our very core were men here. -J1

692

Re: Snow session report

We stuck to the backside. Thimble Peak, above chair 4, and Covered Wagon Peak. Also, there is still plenty of fresh snow coming down off Lookout Vista. I'm not certain that the snow will hold up through the week, though. You may want to consider a resort with better grooming capabilities. Who knows, you may find some gold out by Sentinel!

693

Re: Snow session report

Yeah...I'm hoping for something in the trees, but we'll see.

Should be fun though. Taking the lady up who isn't quite up to my level, but they have pretty cheap lessons there and she likes the runs, so we'll have a good time.

Re: Snow session report

Went to the upper elevations of the So Cal ranges and got some grade A powder. For avalanche assessment we dig pits in the snow and we hit the ground at 5 ft. It was all new snow.

Yeah as long as youre passed the ropes the risk of dying becomes serious. It happened at Mt High not even 50 yards from the resort and I was out there that same day and the signs were obvious, get back inbounds asap.

Sure is, one of the sub peaks. Theres great steep stuff nearer the main peak but its a real big trek for a single day and the recent storms were too light to stick to the steeper faces. Trees it was.

Re: Snow session report

Here are some more shots of the route I did on Hood (enjoy Coon).  I didn't take any of these, there's no fucking way I was about to let go of either my axe or pole until I was onto a less steep pitch. 

Could've rode this chute out or either of two to the right, they were plugged with condensed pow.

Basically pow from where this shot was taken all the way skier's right passed the big rock and down that snow field...and I left the split at 8,000 ft.  Still kicking myself.
