Thanks BCR, DD and MMcP for showing up and letting me show you our mountains. Thanks also for putting up with the Ghetto, my youngin's, and the all night ICP music from the neighbors. Always a party on the weekend there.
About 3 years ago BCR and I met on the Couloir forum as 2 of the most rabid splitters on the web. Shortly afterwards, I started my gig at Voile, and BCR started this great site. We hooked up in Tahoe for some touring, he came here for the first split fest, and ... The point is that the web has been a great place for us to meet like minded individuals for some great touring. There seems to be a welcome couch in just about every state, so I highly recommend hooking up with others from the forum here.
Here's a photo of BCR skinning up the ridge to the top of the W Bowl in Silver Fork

Here's a photo I took of my board collection, which also includes a few of my Nephew's.
Even though there's a lot of BC traffic here in the Wasatch, there are areas that you can go and never see others. You just have to be fit and willing to hike. The only crowded areas are the easy access areas with the great terrain, and that's just on Saturday, as half the population is in church on Sunday.
A great thing about the Wasatch is that splitting really took off here, and there are numerous splitboarders with some serious skills. Catching the bus Saturday morning included almost as many splitboarders as skiers- on an express bus to Alta! It's impossible not to improve rapidly here with so many others to learn from. There really is a splitboard revolution going on here, and it makes it a fun place to be.
The best part about letting BCR stay is that he always leaves a very generous gift!
Thanks very much guys, I had a great time, and you're welcome to come back for more!
PS, one of you three left a very nice inflatable pad. Let me know where to send it to.
Disclaimer: I'm new at the photo thing, so I apologize for the poor quality, and especially for not having any half-clear photos of Matt
mtnrider- When are you coming up, or have you been breathing too much exhaust ?
Not at all actually...I've only sucked fumes 2X.
I've just been working on my projects. I've had some issues but they are resolved now. I'm heading to the Spokane, N. Idaho on Sunday possibly for a few weeks. When I get back it's on.
