So here's another from the Mt Baker Splitfest. What a great weekend! We scored on the weather and had awesome snow conditions as well. Great job putting it all together Bob and Terry. Already looking forward to next year. The raffle was great, although a bit crazy and quite packed, with lots a of great prizes. I won some G3 skins. :thumpsup:

Out first day we hit some of the low hanging fruit and it did not disappoint.

The next day we decided to go for something a little bigger.
Let's go up there.

Still a long way to go.

Amazing pictures! Love the blue ice. Never seen a glacier up close. Keep on shredding!

that was probably the most fun i've ever had touring with such a big party, and we lucked out on the conditions, too!

thanks for the great photos, john, you put mine to shame! if only you hadn't been the first one to drop in off that steep table mountain line, maybe i'd have a shot of me riding it instead of just peering down. there's my motivation not to go 2nd next time...
