Nice work and stoked on all the recent activity/pics in this thread guys! 8)

Sadly the wife has pulled my bc pass due to lack of a job. These local pics are getting me through though, thanks! :thatrocks:

BCR - I'm confused. Shouldn't lack of job mean more snowboarding?

We've been doing shuttles on Red Lk Pk the last two weekends. The coverage is good and the snow is great. Burly windy on the ridge yesterday w/windpack in the upper bowl. Sweet down low. :P

A couple pics from this week. Snow quality is amazing right now. Saw one natural over on Red Lake Peak earlier this week and noticed plenty of wind slab on ridges out that way.

Nice Dave! :thatrocks:

Becker is looking the way it should. Unlike the way it did a week ago when we hit it.

Jealous! :mrgreen:

WTF, you must then be the only guy in the world that gets more days on the snow WITH A JOB. :scratch:

BTW, nice pics Storn.

I hope you got the pass today. It will be sick. I should have stayed up but the legs were dead and work guilt set in.

Yesterday around Donner was absolutely amazing. Super deep, sunny, no wind, but warming a little too fast. Slight crusting on S facing by afternoon.

We did see some 1-2 day old naturals about 12-16 crowns on steep windloaded rollers.

Lots of long sluffs and very small releases, but light and fun.

Got a little too gung-ho and untracked hungry and almost accidently launched over the train shed. The 20 footer looked good to go but not when you haven't scoped it. :banghead:

No pic day= more vert.

Sweet! Glad you got some good turns on Donner. Tallac was sick today. Just a couple minutes to post a few pics before we leave to drive 12 hours to scrubfest... woohoo! Liketoride finally got to ride The Cross. Side entrace (direct and elevator weren't quite in), but super fun and good snow! Seeing as how I haven't been on a snowboard since Dec 31, I'd say this was worth waiting for. :)

Thanks to SF for waiting for us (me) to get ready to drop, and getting some sweet pics.

Sweet photos Jim. Glad to see you all got a classic line on Tallac.

Conditions are amazing right now. Blue bird, low avi danger, powder days are a special thing.

Speaking of avi danger...

There was a huge crown on Baldy next to Ralston. Since the debris was mostly covered by snow, I'm guessing it slid Mon or Tues, when Avi Danger was High. From a distance parts of that crown looked close to head high.

Just a little bit away from there, Bethany drops into a thousand plus feet of powder turns.

Looking back at five splitter tracks.

Just noticed that latest avy conditions posted with some recent slide activity... That late January rain crust is definitely still hanging around in some places causing some good sized slides with minimal effort at the mid elevations. Check the conditions and pick your lines wisely, especially with another 2-4ft of heavier snow falling over the next couple days...

Hmm.. Guess the images doesn't like being linked... See them all below in the trip report...

TR with the avy info...
