    Conditions are still a little interesting down low on the approach and exit.

    Better higher up.

    Pyramid Peak starting to shape up.

    bcrider takes a sample.

    dave is next.

    bcrider tries for a method and comes up melancholy.

    A look over to line 1…

    and on to line 2.

    boooooyaaaaa!

    dave.

    bcr hits a jib….

    ….misses the grab….

    ….and somersaults on his head. 😆

    Luckily he finds a little redemption.

    Great day to be out, thanks again for the company dave and for playing photog and photo-slut! :thatrocks:

    Is dishwasher dave actually dishwasher david blaine? Nice photo from the levitation point of view. Does he even need to skin or can he float to the top?

    Dig the pics and the angles. Good stuff! Glad you guys are getting yours. I heard 6-8 feet predicted? Could that be? Better hold on!

    Yeah, but the snowboarders are much less likely to try and start a fight with you if you decide to join them. 🙄

    Great angles on the shots, you guys really do put the T&E on photography while out there, most of the time I am so stoked to be riding, the camera never comes out of the bag, thanks for a sweet TR. Nice lines too.
