To our right Kombiz and his buddy were dropping the heli-land line and slayed it!
Image

Image

Looking back up from the lake, note the rocks along the side of the lake…
Image

they're great for summer fun. My boy Skyler takes a dip off the same rocks.
Image

From here it was time to head towards the next peak.
Image

Steeleman getting closer. Most of our line is visible in the background.

Nearing the ridge.

Surface-whore.

So we were looking good on time but not good enough to ski the line I really wanted to. My wife and son weren't feeling that morning and I haven't had a weekend day off in months…needless to say the wheels started spinning in my head. With little hesitation I made the decision to call in sick and take care of the family…which would also give us time to hit the line I wanted to. I made a left at the ridge when steeleman and dave expected me to go right. They were a bit puzzled and said they figured I ws either high or calling in sick….turns out it was both. :)

The boyz make their way to Indian Rock with Echo proper in the background.
Image

Hard to not take in the views up there.
Image

I love Big Blue but I have the hardest time keeping the lake level in my photos.
Image

Steeleman stoked.
Image

Dave spies the fun Echo chute.
Image

I fill my partners in on my plan and give them a disclosure about it being a new lined that I haven't skied yet. They put their faith in me and I set off to the first stopping point at the dead tree.
Image

Steeleman goes next and is determined to keep his hiking-to-turns ratio in the positive.
Image

Image

dishwasher is next.
Image

Image

All is going well, so its on to the next safety zone. BCR leads the way.
Image

Image

double d is next.

BCR enters the next part of the line.

In second to last section the snow was starting to get pretty cooked from the sun…advantage snowboards. :mrgreen:

At the bottom the snow got good again, BCR finds a little jib…

Image

And sucks up the compression…
Image

to Angora Lake.
Image

Stoked.
Image

Time to head out. Looking back.
Image

Here's a pic from 2 years ago with Dwanis. That day we took a sketchy traverse (red line). Today's line is in green. Can't wait for better coverage like in this pic now that I know the line better.
Image

On the way home my lower elevation playground is finally coming into shape too. :)
Image

Got home at 3:30pm and had to fill in for my wife at my daughter's cookie sales at 4pm. Good times and much better than working till 11pm like I was supposed to.
Image

All in all a really great day and probably my best of the season so far. Two new person firsts in one day, great conditions, and great company.

Thanks guys! Good times! :)

ps. sorry for posting dup pics.

Sick, sick, sick. That last line was great. Terrain looks tasty.

Thanks for the stoke.

Dave, BCR
Thanks for the post. If you guys have anymore pics, such as our lines on the echo chutes I'd be stoked.
JB & myself are planning another tour this weekend. Something spring-like, since its suppose to be around 65 degrees.
If interested BCR has my #.
Later :mrgreen:
