Wellll… the weather ended up interfering w/those plans, however, we did get some much needed POW. PN stoked to wake up to a winterwonderland in the *assen lot PN skinning, as it continues to dump PJ takes it to “a whole notha leval” (SNL) PN Since the weather forecast called for 80 MPH winds on Shasta we decided to stay at *assen. The winds were pretty bad in the morning but tapered off during the day. Sanfrantastico met up w/us too. Eco and SF skinning. Eco pointin’ it- a bluebird bc bday Storn-happy in the bc PJ PN Day 3-Shasta. Bunny flat and not a soul around. Eco skinning up avalanche gulch Eco looks back while PJ leads the way to Casaval ridge now skinners start your engines. ouuu nice mojo (oops, last 2 pics out of order) Stoney rocks w/redbanks in the distance Ecobutt 😉 Eco and PN booting PN reaches our destination Ecosilhoette Here we gooooooo.

Im 6’4″ and just wonderin if my long ol legs would fit in something like that Ive been looking at motor homes and that looks sweet and a whole lot cheaper..

Thanks for rubbing it in 😉 Glad you had a great time ❗ April 23, 2007 at 6:57 pm #596144 powderjunkie 1666 Posts We missed ya KS. But we felt your mojo presence through Eco’s board. These mtns aren’t going anywhere. Systemsplit – At 6’4″, you’d be pretty squished in this one, both sleeping and standing. April 23, 2007 at 7:09 pm #596145 mmcpheet 98 Posts Nice TR, way to get after it! How far is the road open to near *assen? April 23, 2007 at 10:25 pm #596146 liketoride 263 Posts Very cool TR! 4 days, and SF said you guys did 4 laps the day he rode with you guys, because Puff Nattie rallied for one more to get the powder stash. That’s awesome, impressive! Splitboarding is the answer unless Splitbooting is the answer, either way we're going snowboarding because America! April 24, 2007 at 12:28 am #596147 Wyomingsplit_ride 663 Posts Yah…love the pics, looks like so much fun, and the camper looks gat. Happy Birthday Ecodad…hope you slayed a line or two for me. April 24, 2007 at 7:23 am #596148 SanFrantastico 1514 Posts Happy Birthday Eco! PN – your action shots are truely awesome. Mine mostly came out sucky, so here are a bunch of scenic shots.. We were going to ride the backside of this mountain until we noticed all the new snow was leaving. 🙁 It was a little windy. But we had fun anyway. And we saw some great views. Spoony Love from up above. PN. Thanks for another fun day! Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968. April 24, 2007 at 7:31 am #596149 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Thanks for taking so many nice pictures Nattie and PJ. I had a blast hanging out with you guys. Everyone needs to know that the main ingredient for the weekend was laughing. At ourselves, each other, you, whatever. Gotta love long weekends with no worries–expect freakin Barbara 😉 And yeah, the pop-up rules. Nothing like waiting out a windstorm by relaxing on cushioned seats and drinking coffee. Matt-The road was closed at the SW parking lot but its plowed all the way through. I knew you were gonna post that freakin split-N-dales photo 🙄 Aren’t you guys ever too hot for a shirt but too lazy to take your boots off? Thanks for all the birthday wishes everyone. Nothing like POW on your birthday. April 24, 2007 at 3:48 pm #596150 3snowboards 82 Posts Very very nice! Looks like some great late April conditions. We need to have a *assen summit. Ps : happy bday eco. April 24, 2007 at 5:33 pm #596151 mtnrider 740 Posts Looks like I missed out on a supa-fun trip. Especially since I got suckered into working instead. grrr 😡 Eco…u must be getting senile in your old age 😆 April 24, 2007 at 5:49 pm #596152 powderjunkie 1666 Posts Matt-The road was closed at the SW parking lot but its plowed all the way through. Matt, actually they have the road plowed to Devastated Area on the north side and Bumpass Hell on the south. They had closed the road to both DA and BH when the storms hit. My guess is it is probably open again. April 25, 2007 at 3:37 pm #596153 bcrider 4149 Posts Happy Belated eco!!! Looks like a great weekend! :thatrocks: April 25, 2007 at 5:10 pm #596154 jimw 1420 Posts Nice… you guys shoulda come to TPR though!
