Glad everyone is enjoying the late season bonus pow.

Fun hike in the hills yesterday. Backed off 80% of the way up due to increasing wet slide concerns. Despite the snow's dissatisfaction with the sun, we thoroughly enjoyed soaking in it along with the view.

Hah! No. Definitely a little deadfall hopping involved. Not too bad, maybe 3-400 vert of rock and wood. Ditched the skins down low and planned to boot it. Thoroughly regretted this decision when I watched Beau and a couple other skiers skin the whole damn thing. I now understand why folks rock full camber boards with hardboots. Or skis.

Y'all are making me second guess my decision to go mountain biking instead of snow sliding this weekend.

Looks like a fun trip Nordic. There's some awesome looking terrain at the head of Cascade Canyon. We skied the southeast face of the South Teton over the holiday weekend. Coverage is still awesome in the high peaks. Posted a little TR on the main site: http://splitboard.com/talk/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=16953

Not yet. Planning to be down there the weekend of the 13th though. All the reports I've heard and photos I've seen sound promising however. I haven't completely switched over to mountain biking yet.

Headed up to Bridger Bowl to sneak in a day of riding in May. I'm sure you all love selfies, ya? Was able to drive to the upper lot, had to boot up dirt for a few hundred meters then was able to skin as far up as the fast-approaching nightfall allowed (upper North Bowl Road). Snow was nice corn but you had to keep an eye out for areas with excessive suncupping. Not bad for a 6:30pm start.

Anyone interested in slogging up to the Blaze on Saturday? Looks like it should get nice and cold up high Friday night.

Camped at Rock Creek Friday and Saturday. Rode part of a couloir up near the headwaters of Rock Creek on Saturday and then did a line on "Reefer Ridge" off the Pass on Sunday. I was visually surprised at how little snow was left in the high country. Snow was variable, with everything from a few centimeters of fresh pow to ice to sloppy mush.

Our line on Saturday:
