He was early and spent the extra time making a pb&j sandwich. We met up with gimpy and joesnow shortly after and formulated a planÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ Ã¢â‚¬Â¦to get some pow pow that is. 🙂 joesnow entering the whiteroom and enjoying his stay It was deeper than we expected. powderjunkie takes flight… keeps his speed… a lays into it. joesnow back for more. I think he likes it. powderjunkie enjoyed it too. pillowtime gimpy got plenty too. More joesnow. The approach was brutal but you gotta do what you gotta do. 😉 April 4, 2006 at 4:34 am #588017 bcrider 4149 Posts Part Two By 10am we had three runs under our belt (thanks to the car shuttle) and the day was still young so we headed off for some more turns. Creek crossing funÃ¢â‚¬Â¦don’t get yer skins wet! Gotta get up to get down. On top. Tahoe gimpy joesnow Dear powderjunkie, I’m really sorry I botched the following pics. They powder plumes where huge bro! These are better. PJ back for more. gimpy bcr (thanks for the pics joe!) Pretty sweet for April 1st! Thanks guys! April 4, 2006 at 4:59 am #588018 joesnow 46 Posts Helluva day! I don’t know about the rest of y’all, but I’ve been jonesing for some bcr videos this year. A short in his video camera has kept it out of order, unless bcr gives it the old white knuckle squeeze. So the stills from his trips have been killer, but where’s the video? Well I decided to give it a go. It’s a far cry from the quality of flick he produces, but at least there’s lots of footage of him rippin’ the pow on the other side of the lense. Gimpy and Powderjunkie also star, with a few appearances by myself. Click Here…..hope this works: http://www.sierraflow.com/April%20Fools%20AVI-1.wmv p.s. thanks for all the help with the formatting, bcr!

March in Montana has simply not produced. I want some pow in my face! How the hell does it always snow during the night then get sunny during the day down there? Ridiculous! April 4, 2006 at 4:54 pm #588023 powderjunkie 1666 Posts What a day. 😀 Good to hook up with you guys. I actually broke trail for Gimpy. 😀 joesnow – great video. Not too shabby for a first time. Lots of stoke in it. BCR – no pics of the Thai food. That was the best part. I’ve only got a few good photos that I’ll post soon. Here’s the best one. mtnrider – always an open invite to come up.

April 10, 2006 at 11:46 am #588031 fowweezer 22 Posts Nice work on the video and really nice pictures. might motivate me to haul my big-ass video camera out next time, instead of just the still cameras. Hate carrying that thing, but if I could get footage half that good I’d be pleased. April 11, 2006 at 8:34 pm #588032 johnnyquesadilla 17 Posts Cali contention! I thought I was going to posting some epics from here in Norway… not the case, for the second year in a row… you guys are dominating the snow cover! Unbelievable, and it just doesn’t seem to be stopping! Nice pics, I’m downloading the vid now… As a teaser, I finally did get a few turns in last weekend in the Austrian Alps… I’ll be posting a TR soon. Until then… skol! … ok, vid downloaded! Sweet. Nice work, like butta! April 12, 2006 at 12:48 pm #588033 TEX 2486 Posts Hey Johnny how about some general Norway Pics? What do the towns look like? What kind of cars do they drive? What do the road signs look like? Just like to look at far away lands. Thanks Viewing 18 posts - 1 through 18 (of 18 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
