Not keen on doing any cross-country so I headed into Rowe bowl. Went up the south shoulder for a run on the north aspect. That was key, anything that has seen sun was a little baked…. ^^Gets windy sometimes. ^^The usual suspects, Cameron Lake & Summit Knob. You in there Wade? ^^The line of choice. Some softish wind blown, sluff was running real slow. ^^Which one was knuckledragger couloir? Also managed to destroy a toe-strap (guess what folks? It happens!), bend a pole and de-lam the tail of the mullet; all on the skin up. Interesting ride out. But hey, turns are turns! Nice mellow day. Light was shit, sorry for the poor photos.

If that was yesterday, I was in there somewhere…riding this: The Knuckledragger is the one that runs from the summit of Rowe….ie. higher up along the ridge you dropped from. P.S. There’s (sadly) no north aspect in there. The side you were on is pretty much east, the side with the trees is almost pure south…. (pure) north is a very scarce commodity in the park.

March 21, 2011 at 1:51 pm #638043 maniacdave 564 Posts Sick line indeed! Another first decent in the park? Heh… perhaps I should look at a map more often. My bad. That was Pontus March 21, 2011 at 4:39 pm #638044 treepilot 352 Posts Unsure, but likely hasn’t seen tracks before. I know a skier who hit the bowl, but made a hard traverse to the far looker’s right (rider’s left) and dropped through the more open spot. The line we took through the rocks is actually spine shaped – hard to tell with the red line over top. Would have been a lot more fun if we’d gotten the powder conditions we expected (and had up high). Wound up with board pen of about 1cm over top of knife hardness. Good times for sure. A better view in this unmolested photo. March 21, 2011 at 4:42 pm #638045 Kyle Miller 510 Posts Nice work guys. Wade is that photo from late spring looks like it could use a foot or ten of snowpack. March 21, 2011 at 4:55 pm #638046 treepilot 352 Posts Photo taken last weekend, when I put the pilot back in treepilot…. Snow pack is actually about 25% above average. Despite a fairly sheltered location, the anabatic winds do a pretty good job of scouring. My theory goes that our rib/spine was actually a monstrous uphill drift – explains the hardness… as the freezing level wasn’t that high elsewhere, nor was it pen/knife. Wind sucks eh? Sorry for the threadjack Dave! 🙂 March 21, 2011 at 5:10 pm #638047 russman 689 Posts @mrash wrote: @treepilot wrote: Looks like a fun day.
