I'll be up at Hull next Fri/Sat - Jan. 11/12. Will be skiing both days and camping out Friday night. Hey, powderjunkie, you should think about cruising up Fri night and crashing our party. Bring some beer - I mean friends!


Full TR here

Fishin for partners?? You'll never get anybody to go with you out there. I don't even this the place really exists.

I dig the backcountry TR thread. It's a classic.

I like your signiture
'Classic T-tips quotes: If "your" bc skiing destination is so close to a road that you can't find fresh tracks you're a copulating pussy. Man up whiner.'

I changed it for you -

If "your" bc skiing destination is so close to a road that you don't need a 4x4 offroad vehicle, you're a copulating pussy. Man up whiner.'

Your right. NOBODY is going to come here.
... :lol:


and yes, I am fishin' for partners. Wanna go? :idea:

No Sh!t - me too. I killed two hours once reading it at work and marveling at the sheer number of features you've given Hull-related pun names to. Genius.

Just got back from another Hullathon. And here's a little teaser. Just another stupid, shaky, shitty little vid taken with my digital camera.

Camped out

Gonna wait out this next storm and head back up in a few days. Might be time to head elsewhere though...

I got another shitty 'lil vid. Let's see if powderjunkie can identify where this is was taken.
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... &plindex=4

While uploading my vid to Google, I ran into this
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid ... 6223551854

This is not me. This is just some crazy rednecks and their even crazier dog. What this vides does show is some of the 4wheel action that can take place just trying to get to and from Hull Mountain.
This is one of the reasons that I like skiing here. THE 'WHEELING RULES!
This guys video was taken up by Sanhedrin Mountain, just down the street and around the corner from Hull, as well as quite a bit of footage of Boardman Ridge.
The wooden fence area is by Sanhedrin.

Hint powderjunkie:
The area shown in my shitty 'lil vid is also shown in the crazy rednecks vid.

jib, that 4X vid is great. Good tune and the dog shitting is too funny.
Wheelers saved our ass last weekend because we had a dead battery up there Sunday evening and they gave us a jump.

Ha! Nice pics dude. Thanx for your recon of the Hully Gullies. I've been wanting to drop those for years.
Congrats on a First Descent! So many runs up there. It'll blow your mind. I pretty much screwed up the chronological order of the campfire pics in my TR.
It was kind of difficult to keep them in context.
Our liquor count for the 3 days and 3 nights of Hull was
25 bottles of wine and 54 Sierra Nevada beers for three guys.
:roll:
Lucky for us the corn window was from noon to 3pm all three days!
:wink:

I loved that skiers/boarders left line in the Hully Gullies. That drift was sick. I rode it like the right line of a half pipe.
Sirjibalot says I rose a good 10 feet off the deck coming out of there.
I think I got about 3-5 hits off the drift. Felt so good!
The climb out of there was exciting as well.
My pics don't really show how steep it was for hiking. Perfect for going down, but I should have put my crampons on for the hike up.

We met two kids from L.A. that used to live up there and ride dirt bikes.
They got stuck on that last drift with the tire tracks just after Camp II.
They walked into our campfire - interupting our drinking and requesting help.
They were in jeans, tennis shoes with no socks and hoodies.
They wanted to borrow a shovel.
We were so drunk by then that we had no interest in helping them...
:lol:
The only shovel you need at Hull can be bought at your local hardware store!
We kept our eye on our gear by the Jeeps and they represented and returned my shovel after they dug themselves out.

There's nothing like Hullin' it. Nothin'.

God bless Hull Mountain!
