    Thanks for the replies.

    Chris,

    I appreciate the advice on the traverse, but I’m going for 2 weeks max, and I’m more into riding than skinning 200km. I’m sure it was amazing and wouldn’t mind doing something like that in the future, and totally commend you for doing it, but this trip is about riding gnar AK lines, not traversing. When traversing comes in, riding lines is kinda a second thought, and the first one is making it to the destination. The main focus of this trip is to ride lines.

    Earnyourturn and sometimesdylan,

    Thanks for the recommendations, I’m going to look into them!

    Here’s to a fat and stable snowpack this spring, and hopefully a weather window! :guinness: :thatrocks:

    Ya, I’ve already got pulleys, biners, slings, and prussik rope.

    I just saw this, and it seems like crevasse rescue for dummies, in a compact package

    Thanks for sharing, your take on what I’m sure is a very tough subject. Hopefully we can all learn from it

    Awesome Kyle! You’ve been killing it. I can’t wait to see the stuff from NZ.

    I wish I could have been along for more of your adventures, hopefully sometime in the future.

    So I went on a birthday tour this last weekend, and when I got home I was stoked to find my new 2 piece whippet on the doorstep. I opened it up and was pretty sure that the lowers from the expeditions would slide right in. So I went out to my truck to grab my pack…the only thing left on it were the two lower most pieces.

    The flicklocks opened while I was riding and I lost the middle and upper section on both poles. I then played with the flicklocks on the whippet, and found out that the new flicklock is really nice. Just not on the pair I got, or they needed to be adjusted, because they would pop open with the slightest force.

    So I called BD and they gave me wholesale on another set. Which was nice of them, because I have no proof of what happened. I may have raised a stink, but I was already on a pair of free poles from them so I guess that’s just how the cooky crumbles sometimes.

    Lessons learned:

    If your flicklocks feel too springy, adjust them

    and they new whippets will except your expedition lowers to convert a 2 piece to a 3 piece if you don’t want to go the carbon route

    The owner of Crystal mtns wife, Kim Kircher who is a ski patroller on the mtn wrote a post about this, and how inefficient snowboarding is, and how it was going to die blah blah blah. It looks like she backtracked a bit after sounding like an alta ski nazi

    My first snowboard ever was a Burton Air Craig Kelly Pro model with purple stripes. His prime was a little before my time, but he influenced the riders that I grew up watching.

    He pushed the sport away from the contest scene, and into freeriding and into the backcountry. We are all in debt to what he did for the sport. :bow:
