Dig a pit next time! March 31, 2008 at 6:32 pm #604854 Mumbles 753 Posts My wife is from Nashua, as is her whole family. I have a call out to them to ask if anyone saw you riding. My wife says that stretch of roadway looks familiar, but she has been gone a while. Not the sickest terrain we have seen, but shows the determination of those motivated to ride. That is stoke of an entirely different kind. Did you work on transitions and skinning or just boot pack it back up?

There’s no way in Hull anyone could skin up that, it’s just too steep. That’s the shiznit of the gnar bro. Way to represent! :thatrocks: March 31, 2008 at 11:05 pm #604856 dave 100 Posts avy danger was low. i knew i had to get out at exactly the right time before the wet slide danger increased. nice eye’s spotting that terrain trap. timing was everything. yes i booted it in this particular spot. however, there is another gem i shredded in late december. a dawn patrol mission before work. we just kept getting slammed and i couldn’t take it anymore. i had to get some. about twice the vert and powder conditions than this spot above. yes, i seriously dug a pit too. about two feet deep. got two laps in and it was my only day on the split this season. one car stopped to watch when they saw me skinning the ridgeline. the guy’s at work didn’t believe me when i showed up in all my gear, but i ultimately convinced ’em when i showed them my board that split apart into ski’s. completely foreign device to them.
