Nice firm boot-up – the dog’s having a little trouble getting a grip though Looking down the run – sorry – no action photos – was a solo day The waterfall I had to jump to get down After getting past the waterfall I had to look back. Snow had been perfect corn all the way down. While looking up I ran onto some super hardpacked old avy deposit which enabled me to rocket suddenly into a large rock before I could get turned ::: the result The death of an old friend 🙁 . At least now my wife can understand why I need a new splitboard 😀 May 8, 2006 at 2:39 pm #588737 Ecobrad 2068 Posts Duuuude. Goners. At least it died on the snow. What are you going to buy?

Not to hijack your thread, but here’s my weekend ‘ooops’… I pulled off the road to take a picture of the gorgeous blue ice on Caples Lake, which doesn’t show in the photo. 🙁 There was a ton of snowmelt running in the asphalt gutter along the road. I guess the water had eroded about a foot of soil from under the gutter because just as I came to a stop, my left front tire broke through asphalt. You can’t really see it, but my rear tire is 8″ in the air. I had to wait a few hours for the tow truck, but the driver wenched it out in about 3 minutes. Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.

For your next board, maybe you should look at ordering a custom Prior? It should arrive by next season. (OK, sorry, that was low… :)) SanFran – Doh! When were you up there? I was at Carson Pass on Sunday, also saw wavy from the forum up there. May 8, 2006 at 8:42 pm #588742 lewmt 570 Posts Am building a split from a Nitro Naturals now. Maybe get a real split next winter. Man SF thats rough. Hopefully no damage to the car? May 8, 2006 at 10:00 pm #588743 SanFrantastico 1514 Posts It may look bad, but losing your split is much, much worse. I have AAA, so there was no charge for wenching my truck out of the hole and it seems to be running totally fine. It just made for a long day… Jimw – liketoride and I did the Red Lake Peak shuttle on Saturday. Next time we should coordinate. The snow is going fast, though.
