When I think of how much I benefit from their forecasts and evaluations and accident reports, it makes me a tad nervous that we won't have their expertise, now that we're moving into what promises to be a long spring splitboarding season.

I totally agree. I'll be donating for sure. I've been meaning to do it for a while.

Might I suggest throwing JiveStick a bone as well.
Although some won't own up to it, I'm confident many consult his page as often as the UAC.

Valid ideas by both Buckchow and Snurfer. We have great resources here, we need to support them.

It's supposed to rain up to 10,000ft tonight so I offer up this video in sacrifice to Ullr, Jah, Odin, Zuess, whoever... in hope that they turn the air cold and cover the mountains in a white blanket of purification.

:scratch:

anyway on to the video, this is back from the early part of march. i'm running out of 2-3 minute songs.

You can see in the last pic, Nic pulled out a slab when he landed. That pitch was much steeper than most of what we rode today, with a trigger and the correct angle the snow seemed reactive creating small new snow slabs. Cornices were also a little sensitive and deserved caution.

The Wasatch has not sucked lately. :headbang:

Question: Have any of you had a look at the Henry Mountains this spring? I will be spending next week in Ticaboo for work stuff and I'm trying to decide if I want to take my personal vehicle (with no reimbursement for fuel, mileage) and split Mount Ellen's east face. There is a RAWS station showing a total season snow water equivalence of about 10" of precip but its located on a south facer at 8.5k' so not very valuable.

I know, sack up and taker yer shit down there and see for yourself but money's a little tight right now.

Any info is greatly appreciated.

Stagger - I can't say much about the Henry's but I was down in southern Canyonlands in mid-March and coverage was looking good in the La Sals and Abajo's (At least from the highway). Since it wasn't a splitting trip I can't say much about snow quality or anything but looked really tempting. Granted a lot can change in a month. So yeah, pretty much not a lot of help to you. Sorry.

UTAH - Great video. I love days like that.

I was in Moab over the weekend. What the wind did not carry away from the La Sals looked to be melted, or melting (lots of brown sections).
What approach and what day[s] are you planning to hit Mt Ellen?
Are you going to drive from Powell all the way back to Hanksville and approach from the NE via Lonesome Beaver?
Or take the Starr Springs road along the south and approach from the SW? Just curious, I've been thinking of going camping down that way.
