Hey gang...this is the spot to add all of your Scrub Fest photos. I will be posting a few soon, but don't wait for me. Had a great time this weekend. A big thanks to VOILE (loved the new Mojos that DJ brought), splitboard.com, Thrillhead Creations, Shred Ready, Loki, Lifelink, sawatchsplitter for the BBQ sauce/Salsa, and MS Backcountry Riding Club.

First run of the first day dancing with dragons. Set off an avalanche that went pretty big on a rollover. No one hurt or burried but kept us on our toes the rest of the weekend. The next day another one was set off and partially burried two of the crew.
A huge gang of scrubs infiltrated the Tetons in masses. Took up the whole parking lot and had the locals cussing us...big enough mountains for all though.

Was great to reunite with the scrubs. Truly enjoyed meeting new peeps and hangin' out in the mountains. Thank you all who showed up. Killa.

Can't contribute a pic since I never took my camera out....I was just having too much fun riding . Amazing weekend & phenomenal riding with great people all around! I'd 2nd the thanks to all the sponsors - that was icing for everything else that was so great about this weekend - & WSR - you deserve all the props in the world for all your efforts.
Kevin from the South Dakota Crew emailed these photos that he took. Good stuff.

Leo gets waste deep in dragons (avalanche ripped on approach):
Sanfrantastico in the gut and a bit shaken. We definitely had some spooky pockets of snow. Just read about the 5 and 5 theory. We have received five feet of snow with five inches of water, which apparently is a magic number for avi cycles in these parts:
Sweet, good stuff here. Finally got to see some pics of the slide we all heard about, glad everybody is ok on that one. Keep the pics comin ya'll! I'll try to get mine up soon...might have to relegate those duties to splitfire. Stay tuned.
This event was cool as hell! I had a blast shreddin that Wyo Cowboy Powder and meeting everyone. Props to all those who came from all over-The California crew, the Montana Posse that was representing, S. Dakota, Arizona, the Utards and the CO folks(props for the salsa and sauce!)! Thanks to everyone who came by "The Cabin" as well! And UB for footin the bill(and the techy tour specs), the Sponsors and most of all Wyo and BCrider for making it happen!
It was a kick ass core festival and I too plan on making this a yearly pilgrimage. Great lines, great place, lots of laughs and cool scrubs. Word.
Artic-Cat for life, Bitches!!!

Thanks, Wysplit for putting together a really fun event and thanks to all the sponsors for supporting it. It was great meeting everyone in person. I just wish I could have had the chance to ride with more people!
The avy was small for an avalanche, but a hell of a big thing to be underneath. I'll do a separate writeup on it sometime for those who are interested.
Here's a close-up of the crown in the clearing where the slope first started sliding. I think you can see a piece of our skin track in the hangfire in the trees to the left of the clearing. I didn't measure anything but my guess is that the crown was maybe four feet deep and it ran for maybe 150 yards to the left of this picture:
and the runout:
The road to hell was paved with good intentions...
p420 kept talking about something called 'cold smoke.'
