    After spending Sat. catching up on the “List” around home I had to get out Sun to try & catch a line I wanted to get the previous weekend but got rained out.
    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 😀

    Duuuude. Goners. At least it died on the snow. What are you going to buy?

    looks like you knocked off a Burton.

    sorry to hear that.

    the world is your oyster now, what board are you gonna get?

    Bummer/Stoked… Sad to see your old friend go down, but I’m sure you’ll be stoked to make a new acquaintance soon!!

    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.

    lewmt – Bummer. 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.

    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.
