Forums Trip Reports Echo Lakes 3/4/2012 Viewing 5 posts - 1 through 5 (of 5 total) Author Posts March 5, 2012 at 9:22 am #576528 silver 167 Posts Got a last minute reprieve from work on Saturday and gave Aaron (aksltxt) a call. It was bluebird, something resembling powder, and the new snow was stabilizing, so I figured he had something good planned. Turns out a car shuttle to hit a few zones off Echo Summit was on the menu and Aaron was kind enough to let me tag along. The pit results may have been good but Aaron still has a good grip on the granite. Scoping the zone. Echo lake in the background. Chris lines up and drops a rock just below the ridgeline. Kelly makes some soul turns Then Aaron hits it with a little rock ride variation. Aaron riding a techy little rollover further down on our 2nd lap. Kelly stomping a landing in some good snow. Chris follows and airs it out. Aaron booting up to the ridge for our last lap after skinning across a frozen Echo Lake. Crystal Range in the background. It was about 12:00 now and getting hot. No pics from the final descent because I was too busy blasting through surprisingly well preserved pow. After a little bushwhacking and wondering where exactly we were, we made our way back to my jeep. Turns out that my cargo box fits 4 splits and a solid. Not bad. Great day. And finally getting my riding legs under me so now let’s see some more snow. March 5, 2012 at 4:44 pm #652785 bcrider 4149 Posts Good stuff!
