    To make a long story short, the BC south coast has been getting slammed with storm after storm for the past 2 weeks pretty much. So although we haven’t been able to get up high around here, there has been no shortage of neck deep days with faceshots for all. Videos are edited by myself, photos by Lee Lau and Sharon Bader (http://www.sharonandlee.net)

    March 6 – Steep Creek on the duffey lake highway:
    The snowpack in the duffey is the deepest I’ve ever seen, and it keeps snowing fully down to valley floor with blower pow so we just skied 800m tree run shots all day.

    March 11 – whistler slackcountry (musical bumps):
    The day before we skied inbounds because it puked 50cm on the hill and just kept coming down. Over a meter new on lee slopes in the backcountry the next day, so there was no shortage of pillow lines and faceshots.

    March 12 – Spot S in the duffey lake highway:
    More snow coming in so we opted for pillows and trees again. We triggered a few size 1 slides in storm snow at treeline so it was a good choice to stay low. Also the snow didn’t suck.
    play safe kids:

    All clutch albums rock! They make especially good tunes for snowboard videos I find. You can’t really find a song on their albums that doesn’t make me want to go riding.
