Spent a dreamy day scouting some lines with friends today. Was just one of those memorable times in the mountains climbing and riding new terrain. Spring conditions and massive melt are haunting these hills. Experienced super rotten snow, ice, corn. Bluebird prevailed. Hope the snow will too.

Alpine starts, the new routine. Hello spring:

I was stoked to find a nice little ice flow for future fun:

Now take a good look and see the Tetons in the upper right hand horizon. Sure hope the snow lasts longer over there this spring:

Seems like there is never enough time, snow, or money to make a backcountry rider happy....oh so many lines and so little time.
Stay tuned. :D

Doesn't suck to live here in Paradise. Nope not at all. Well there is the below zero we have two weeks a year. -40 is quite special.
