Hi JH_A,

I believe we were dropping North shots off of Angle mountain, moving East along the main ridge as the 11 of us tracked each shot. (Someone correct me if I've got that wrong.) We did hear Whumps prior to the slide, along with other warnings, so I'm not sure if a warning from you would have helped us. Groupthink. :oops:

If you know me, you know I have plenty o' pictures. I'll post more later in a different thread to keep this a place for Scrubfest stoke. I know I'm not the only one that got some of the best powder rides of his life on the trip.

For the record, there were five of us on the slope that ripped. Two were able to hang on to trees. P420 and I both went completely under the snow, but ended up on the surface. Leo took the longest ride, although I can't remember whether he was on the surface or down below during the ride. He ended up buried to his armpits. Amazingly, the only injury was to Leo's pulled hamstring and he was able to climb off the mountain okay. I hope it isn't serious and heals fast.

Thanks everyone for the +vibes and great weekend.

Had a Great Trip. Thanks again Wysplit. Another off the hook time in wyoming. Thanks to Ellis of Thrillhead for the movie and for giving me the poles he won. The slide took mine

Left San Diego after work . This was my parting shot as I hauled ass for wyoming

Image

This is what my drive looked like.....for miles and miles

Image

Hit Sin City around 10 pm

Image

Spent the night in St George Utah. Got woken up by a concrete truck at 6 am. really wanted to sleep longer but got up and hit the road.
Finally see some snow


Image


made salt lake by noon and had time to kill. I had to pick up San Frantastico at the Salt lake airport at 5 pm. did a little shopping here

Image

Then i went by REI and rented some AT boots. Im expirementing with different set ups and wanted to rent before I buy. After that I cruised uo litte cottonwood canyon to look around. I saw some tracks across from Alta on a nice little slope and decided to go for a solo tour. I put on the gear and called San Frantastico and told him i would be a little late.
Skinned up till I had to turn aroud

Image

Didnt take long to hit the parking lot. The snow was crusty and hard. But it felt good to get some turns in and test the AT boots. Everything was working out excellent so far.
Tracks going down

Image

Drove out the canyon to the airport to pick up Vanilla Ice

Image

We hit 15 north and put the hammer down. made it to the Hole by midnight. On the way in we phoned CTowels to ask what he had planned for friday. He said to meet him at Teton Pass at 9 am and promised we wouldnt be dissapointed. We crashed with visions of cold smoke turns in our heads.
Next morning we started our boot up glory

Image

Me and Ctowels

Image

San Frantastico and Mr. Towels all smiles

Image

We made it to the Hut in no time ( no time if you ask Johnny Slowskin)

Image

Views from the inside

Image

Image

Image

We went back out to saddle up

Image

I was diggin my plastic rental boots

Image

San Frantastico gets ready to sample the Teton Blower

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then it was Mr. Towels turn to slay

Image

Image

He hit this nice double ledge huck but my camera operation was a little slow

Image

Image

We hit the powder all the way down to the road. We got a "locals response" on the conditions

Image

San Frantastico waits for the Teton Shuttle

Image

To Be Continued

Glad to hear no one was hurt too bad. Big groups + groupthink = bad juju. Friday kicked ass, got some great turns on West Angle, I can verify the major whumps JH Alpenglow heard. After getting a little intoxicated around the fire I went back to my lame hotel in Dubois, and around 3:00am woke up with a full blown sinus infection. Stayed in bed until they forced me out, Scrubest effectively cancelled for me. So, I drive miserably to Beaver, Utah and crash in another cheap motel. Sunday morning, all medicated on pseudoephedrine, I run back into the mountains east of Beaver and tour for a couple great runs in the Tushar Mtn's. Was great to meet you all, see you next year!

Here's my pics from the trip. :)

A big thanks to ecobrad for driving, Wyosplit-ride for organizing the event and guiding, Voile, Thrillhead Creations, Shred Ready, Loki, Lifelink, sawatchsplitter, and MS Backcountry Riding Club for their support as well!




The Road to Scrubfest

Image

Image

Image

Image

We drove for 10hrs or so and called it quits around 12am in Idaho. We were still about 5 hours away from Scrubfest and we needed to be there by 9am so we arranged our wake up call for 4:15am. A few hours later the phone rings at 3:15am…its our wake up call! We lost an hour crossing the time zone……DOH! What was supposed to be around 4hours of rest turned into 3hours.

As tired as we were we still made it on time. :)

Day One

Wyosplit_ride greets the Friday attendees.
Image

Soon we are off to Two Oceans…a spot that got its name because it lies on the Continental Divide. The snowmelt from one side of the mountain flows to the Atlantic and the other to the Pacific. Pretty cool.

Wyo's playground. There's couloirs in them thar hills!
Image
