    first descent. urban freeride. nashua, nh. 3/30/08
    solo mission
    clear sunny sky’s. about 37 degree’s
    ~30′ vertical (times 15 laps) that’s almost 500′ for the day
    elevation: ~170′

    so i missed the last powder day here in southern nh a few weeks ago. i had riden this spot earlier in the season to scope out my lines. then before i knew it, the season was almost over. we picked up another 5″ or so this past week. i couldn’t let it just melt away. i had to get some. stoked on my fourth day of the season despite the zooming cars. here are some pics:

    ..holy CRAP!!! 😯 😯

    now that there’s just sincere desperation… 😆

    but hey, at least you farmed it dave. nice turns.

    really hope you booted that too. you could prolly run up it faster than switching over. good riding w/ you last winter up at jay.

    Dude, that terrain trap at the bottom looks scary, I wouldn’t want an avy dragging me into that lake. Dig a pit next time!

    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?

    Dude… That’s some sick shit for sure. I wouldn’t want to be caught at the bottom of that thing without my crampons. 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!

    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.

    Looks like a good spot to practice transitions. 🙂 Plus, if you get tired you can always shuttle right to the summit!

    …beautiful.

    my favorite encounter like this was at a gas station when the cashier/attendant asked us ‘are those there remote control airplanes?

    umm, yeeaaaah.
