Splitrippin couldn't have picked a better time to come visit HikeforTurns and score some Colorado powder. I hooked up with them for three days while most of the mountains were measuring new snow in feet. One of the best powder weekends I can remember. Great to meet you Splitrippin!

Whenever I head back home to Montana I make sure to bring back some cans of Kettle House Brewery's Cold Smoke and save them for special occasions.

It pretty much didn't stop snowing

I have to straight up thanks HFT for scoping NOAA and having his pow-dar proper homed in on the storms coming in. And driving my ass around for a couple weekends. Such a rad brother
Bummed I didn't get to see Mr. Bonez...next time.
MD....I don't know if I trust you working bio chemically danger bugs when you're messing with TR's.
while I was driving through the flats of NE, and IA half tweaked out of my mind on "legal" chews. HFT, and MD were at home fondling their parts in preparation for more snow.
That drive to home is brutal suck....It made coming out to CO all that much more worth the while....It snowed and snowed and snowed.
HFT and I were supposed to go to the San Juans, but Bonez avy report consisting of his fartstar eating his undies, and easy failing ECT test's was all that was needed to pull the plug. Plus, I like fondling my wifes butt and boobies......so, safety was key. We had some really solid solid pit results from Sunday though.
It was a rad trip...Such a good time with HFT, and new skin track vato Mountain Dog
Sleeping and starting at 10K will wear down a Wisconeeeee Minneeeeesoter. I'm always envious when I get passed by every freekin bastard on the skin track...due to my lungs struggling to be efficient. Hell even MD dropped the kids off and still caught and passed my ass. All the training pre season never prepares me for starting the day at 10-11K. aye!
Oh and fyi...if you're in a enclosed space with MountainDog...lookout...he'll hotbox you fully on eye watering, I want to jump out the window of a moving vehicle going 60mph style.
MD....I LOVE that "air out" shot....I've finally been outed as the 6" of air boosting maniac I've inspired to be. That was the air that got me into the Sochi qualifying round. I hear Shawn White is having a special jump made from turd, and baby diapers to work on that action for his next video.
Thanks for taking photos guys....I feel bad when peeps end up losing out on top to bottom powder runs from taking photos.
CO represented those 2 weekends...that's for sure. I have a couple more weeks, and I'm heading to ID/BC. BRRRRRAAAAAAAAP!

Nice one guys. MD and HFT pictures are always a crowd pleaser. I'm sad to say I missed these storms. The real job, the phantom job and family life has been out of control. Good thing I wasn't there with Tripp'n or I would have gotten a pole through the head as he tried to fend off the mind controlling hardbooters.
