Fokking cold. In fact it was so bad that 3 of us were having problems with skins freezing. I was using my new split and new skins and even though they were new, the glue was freezingup. Good thing I have voile straps. My one buddy wasn't so prepared and his skins finally blew out on his AT ski's. He had a complete global thermal nucluer meltdown. It was freaking hilarious. Throwing his poles and skis into the rocks. It was frigg'in hard for me to not laugh out loud. Damn, I am smiling right now thinking about it. Good stuff.

Solution for unexpected loss skin adhesion - duct tape. Don't leave home without it.

It was so cold duct tape wasn't sticking. People had it with them. Voile straps are the way to go. I think I am going to buy a couple more. They really saved my bacon that day.

I ended up buying another 166 Voile SD. It was on sale at the downtown REI for $559, I couldn't pass it up for that price. It was the last one. Turns out Derm's wife bought the last 159 there too. They are now officially out of splitboards at the Downtown REI.

check it...

I know this is totally nuts, but this woman was buried back in 2002 out here in WA and her dog dug her out of the slide.

The report above is from the NWAC site, and was investigated by NWAC.

Interesting.

I consider myself, and my dog as a cohesive unit. We're family. If we enter a wilderness together, our collective presence is what disturbs (or enhances) the environment. Its not the dog, its both of us. What we choose to do (go up and down hills on a snowboard and on paws) changes little in the overall ebb and flow of a BC ecosystem. I don't buy into the argument that the presence of a dog for a few short hours in a BC environment impacts caribou herds, or bear migration, or whatever.

Those statements are ridiculous, and applying any sort of observational study to prove those claims would be exceedingly difficult.

A dog belongs in the BC as much as I do.

If you stopped me on the trail to give me a hard time about my dog, I'd probably tell you to fuck off.

Sounds like Mr.ssatller is about the same place in life I am. I used to try to "get along" , do the right thing or what ever but after a while you realize you cant please everyone and there are so many different takes on most subjects. Finally you come to realize it is just you and your dog. So I think I would like to join Mr ssattler in his worldly greeting .
