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

RAD JOOPY! Looks like all time conditions. Love when things are all white and winter like even though it can make the climbing a pain in the butt as opposed to spring or summer.

Re: Snow session report

Just left San diego at (technically) 3am to run out to snowbowl in Arizona to grab some powder with a buddy who lives in flagstaff. If you're reading this, pray to the snow gods for some good conditions for me. Hasn't snowed in 4 days there but they got hit with 44 inches so I'm hoping it's still holding up. I'll try to post some pics

Re: Snow session report

Don't even think about poaching your shit in here.  What's the biggest mountain you've climbed?  The sand berms at Huntington?

Re: Snow session report

Got pretty sketch in Sedona when we first arrived. Then had to celebrate the epicness but then again what's snowboarding when you're only 22 years old and you're not hungover and on 3 hours of sleep. Hit snowbowl super early in the morning and hiked off about a mile into the bowl and elevated about 1500 feet to get the untouched stuff. By big bear standards... The snow was epic.

Re: Snow session report

Is anyone going to be at Tahoe this weekend?   I just got to the Bay Area tonight and will head up there early Saturday morning.  We'll ride some combo or kirkwood, heavenly, or northstar.  I would be stoked to shoot some of ya'll.   I want to test out the Knekt pole trigger for snowboard photos.

Re: Snow session report

pretty good amount of snow in socal area

Re: Snow session report

Been a while here, I'm sure everyone had epic seasons.  Just capped mine off with a win at the Pond Skim on Hood.  Costume: "Bad Bad Hombre, the worst Hombre you've ever seen, believe me" and crashed through a wall guarded by a Trump Pinata.

Around :33 with crash and body slam

Re: Snow session report

Been having fun going into climbing season as well.  Sunrise a couple weeks ago on Hood from about 10,000.  Had a 4k decent in epic stable pow.

Re: Snow session report

Great stuff Joops.  Might be an endless winter of riding from the Cascades all the way down to Mammoth this year.

Re: Snow session report

I'm planning on continuing my monthly streak, this weekend will make 67 months straight.  Stoked that this summer will have plenty of snow to last for easier accessibility to hike!
