Forums Trip Reports Eastern Nevada Viewing 12 posts - 1 through 12 (of 12 total) Author Posts April 25, 2009 at 2:11 am #571671 snobro 125 Posts After a weak storm moved through the Sierras last week, we decided to bag the Ebbetts Pass idea and go get the goods that laid down 30 inches of fresh in Eastern Nevada. We didn’t know too much about the area or the mountains, but made the 300 mile trip anyway and it turns out that Nevada holds down some of the best under rated mountains in the nation. Not to mention lots of snow and steep peaks. Driving along the goods: Terminal Cancer Couloir….only 10 minute hike from how far you can drive into the canyon. Unfortunately, we bypassed it the first day and never came back to get it….we will have to save it for another day. Entering Thomas Canyon Watch out for heavy avi activity: View of the triple bowls that we hit: Skinning up to the goods: View from the top at some bomber lines: April Pow Turns: This was some seriously consequential gnarlyness but James pulls off frontside rock slide to double step down: Glad we skinned this early in the morning. Nice size avy right through our skin track. Campin: Tryin to get this side of Pearl Peak but never happened: Ended up parking and having to hike it from the desert floor. Sunscreen and shade because there are no trees here: Camp at 10,000… Don’t try this in Cali you’ll get a ticket! Headin to the goods: This was from our initial ascent, unfortunately we were 2 canyons over from where we wanted to be. On top: What we hit: Not Splitboarding: Tired dog sleeping in the firepit: The nice thing about a wildlife refuge is you actually see wildlife. Deer being chased out of the canyon by a bunch of freakin snowboarders: Pearl in all it’s glory: Well that’s about it. I left enough clues to figure out where we were. I had a hard time researching the area and I don’t want to make it easy for somebody to google it and be like “that’s sick, I’m going!” So with that in mind, if you find out where it is, don’t blow it up, it’s still highly untouched backcountry.

Did you look at hole in the wall? http://static.panoramio.com/photos/original/6622402.jpg April 26, 2009 at 12:04 am #617294 snobro 125 Posts No, it was our first trip out there so we had to wing it with minimum knowledge. The amount of terrain and the quality of terrain in those mountains is absolutely mind blowing. No wonder its next to impossible to find any information about them.

Maybe next season the Sierra and Wasatch riders can meet up for a tour?

It’s centrally located between Utah, Sierras and even Colorado. Not to mention the bonus of not having a ski town within 300 miles from them means that there are a lot of virgin lines to be had. Untracked territory for us all…well except for the couple lines we got.
