Keg sled Tip clip I think these are prototype Spark BLT (brass long touring) pins and someone has to have a pic of Elliott’s homemade slippers April 23, 2012 at 8:39 pm #655507 ShredOR 130 Posts Pictures i took on the sunshine route.

Also Elliot and Spencer, you guys are rock stars for bringing the chili bread bowls (for everyone)! The hut was amazing, but the company was better. From Oregon Crete to Cano touring Ill never forget this trip.. 4-20 hut party needs to become a tradition! I got a ton of pics I will post here these are just a few Shasta was the OG plan for the first stop, but the thought of crowds and bringin shit bags led us to tour the lassen area 😆 4-20 time to get down Wake n Bake and a brew now lets do some touring! more pics to come April 24, 2012 at 4:27 pm #655513 chronicracing 162 Posts Saturday crew starting to roll down the NE face of Cooper Spur. Funk, stopping in to say Hi. Sunday morning from top of the Spur. Merf, in the serenity of Sunday worship. Waiting for the snow to soften. Cumulus, getting shredded by the dry desert air. Thanks to keg crew, and Elliot and Spencer. Without their efforts eating and drinking would have been a little less merry. :guinness: April 24, 2012 at 6:30 pm #655514 iriecoyote 291 Posts What a great weekend. Here’s some more Saturday pics touring with @mofoco. We got some riding in across from Cooper Spur around the upper Languille Glacier. Looking to drop the moraine … … and cross Elliot Glacier. I nearly made a decision that would have cliffed me out at the base of the moraine, thanks @mofoco for showing me a better way. Tricky perspective on this grand mountain. @mofoco stoked to be out. Washington peaks Waiting for the red bull heli to the drop zone … smoke another one … :doobie: Looking down the Languille Glacier. Snowdome ironically looks hell hot. Barrett Spur Languille Ridge above the crags. Trailside burial. See ya’ll out there! April 25, 2012 at 3:47 am #655515 doganpc 28 Posts Trailside burial 😀 Anyway, I got on the OR splitfest google account (check the event thread for info) and uploaded a few (Dogan’s Photos), since some of those are duplicated here I’ll just stick to Keg Journey and Misc. The Dream The Reality The Victory Saturday Summit team above Snow Dome taken while on my way up to Coopers Spur That giant slab, looking at the map was about 2500ft away from Cooper Spur trail. Math I found puts that huge piece at about 130ft tall, look about right? The Mountain Arsenal Dogan Interesting group of guys. April 25, 2012 at 4:48 am #655516 mofoco 94 Posts Good times! Obligatory suffering: Stuka about to drop off the Spur down to the Elliot. Cascade volcanoes in full effect!: It started softening up. Good thing no one rode off that cliff… Touring the Elliot: Dropping down below Snow Dome toward the Langille bowls: The keg sled took it out of Jefe009: Sunday skinning: Strapping in on the Spur: This mid mountain spot had decent whiskey: Down into the slushy burn zone: Photo ops: Stuka: Mofoco: Jefe009: April 25, 2012 at 1:56 pm #655517 nickstayner 700 Posts Sick collection of photos. Looked like a really fun trip. April 25, 2012 at 2:53 pm #655518 aksltxlt 621 Posts Rollin outa Tahoe, Im stoked and ready for a boarding adventure. I hope I have not forgot anything! We get an hour out and just outside of Reno we stop for a safety meeting. The Kicks tree Pretty cool, but this tree reminds me to not drink the tap water here We set up camp in Lassen National Park, and decide on riding Mt Diller next morning Dom on the up The snow was a tad icy so we hung out and took a few photos and checked out our next stop Shasta in the distance Dom in full on ski mode Aksltxlt The Line That same day we head out to shasta Conditions were smooth and dry the “Pow” of concrete aksltxlt Next nights camp around Klamath we discuss what we should cook up for dinner And guess what happened next Wham Bam, Deer asada sandwiches The Klamath Skatepark is the Best skatepark Ive ever been to :bow: Dom on a board! With time and Sk8n I think I can curb his two planker bad habit We sk8ted for ten minutes and it started to rain 😥 It rained non stop until we got to the Tilly Jane Trailhead, and then the skies cleared. Californian ghetto dryer We skin up to the hut and are amazed at the depth of the snow What would snowshoe Thompson do? He would ski it Mt Hood :drool: These spiders were everywhere Up the Cooper spur On the way Back we stopped by Crater Lake On my Bucket list Full moon powder poach next season hit me up and lets do this! Thanks again everyone for the great times April 25, 2012 at 5:06 pm #655519 Jefe009 675 Posts @aksltxlt wrote: What would snowshoe Thompson do? He would ski it Nice! I was hoping someone would ride off the A frame. We were stoked to have you with us! And yes, Snowshoe Thompson would definitely have taken that same line. www.splitlife.net April 26, 2012 at 2:07 am #655520 stoudema 551 Posts Sweet work guys! Bummed I was out of the state when this went down. Next year I’m there! April 26, 2012 at 2:36 am #655521 Bean Dawg 16 Posts that looks legit as balls!! April 26, 2012 at 4:24 am #655522 bigdood 457 Posts The snow from the car wasn’t exactly consistent Moving a full keg uphill requires many meetings, often to discuss the safety of said maneuver This smoke was from cooking. Probably. Speaking of cooking, Elliott carried up chili for 25 and deserved some schwag for his efforts The dangers of bringing a sleeping bag to a pillow fight Skinning Skin track self portrait The thrill of victory… …and the agony of da feet Snapped this pic of three UFOs buzzing the treeline just outside the cabin on Sunday Goooood times this past weekend, stoked to do it again!
