Ha ha... That's so rad you got pics of mike and jeremy. I had plans to meet up with them but got called back to tahoe for work.

I'll show those guys this thread. They'll be stoked.

That's funny! It seemed like everyone out there was from Tahoe, and everyone knew each other. We also ran into Jeremy at South Lake the previous weekend. You should ask them how "fun" 3rd Pillar was... that middle section was a lot of sideslipping! :)

See ya at N* in a month!

Yeah jeremy said he had to grab his ski tips with his hands and lift them over that chockstone. :lol:

And I'm glad you provided photographic proof of Mike sideslipping a good few hundy of vert. He will be heckled this evening.

I got back down there with mike wednesday of this week. We got solstice, ripper and ellory/chute out in a day. Definitely glad we steered clear of third pillar.

See you this summer yo.

Damn, looks like I missed a killer weekend. Does mountain biking and trying to pursue a chick and thinking it was too warm for the snow to be good qualify as a good excuse? Didn't think so. :nononno: Maybe this weekend I'll get out, though it's supposed to be hot.

Day 2

It was yet another Tahoe crew, this time with Glen Poulsen, another local legend. I also found out he had had a birthday celebration the day before, involving 50+ people doing the Dunderberg to Green Creek tour, and at least one person skiing naked down Green Creek.


That's funny, I was talking to a member of this party. Apparently a couple of guys were bootpacking up an untracked Green Creek Couloir, about 2/3 of the way up, when 50 people dropped in on them. :shock: Son of a ....!

After such a fabulous showing of TR skillz from Jim, I can only add a few shots to the encore performance. But let it not go without saying, that weekend of Tioga harvesting was OFF THE RICHTER FUN!!!!!! Awesome to finally make turns with the rock star crew of JimW and Buffy alongside my posse of northshore upcountry folks (Shane and Phil)

Shane drops into Solstice

And into the colors of the Dana metamorphic pendant

Senor JimW on his way back towards the Equator

Shane got fired up on the quality shredding!
Image

Phil forgot the combine but managed to harvest nonetheless
Image

I found a little wave to play on in Ellery
Image

And the 120nay drrrrrop! Fire it up...
Image

The radical white winter wave!!!
Image

Stalefish slider
Image

The shot Jim has with shane in the road, me sliding, everyone chilling, and the moto flying by really sums up the madness. As he was nearly atomized by the moto, shane did manage to get a nice shot off!
Image

Image

Image

Big rock wave
Image

Time for new wheels! (They started making funky noises about 2 miles from the end, then one melted off. Go figure haha.)
Image

No pics from day 2, I forgot my camera in the car and after the cornice nearly steamrolled us at the bottom of ellery I figured up would be a better bet than probing around looking for a half-functional camera. Anywhayz...
Thanks again ya'll for a specatacular weekend of fun and games!

Looks like fun. Maybe I can find the motivation to ski this weekend.

Incredible TR guys...I'm curious...is this guy married? 'Cause if my wife saw me dropping this entrance/line she'd probably require me to increase my life insurance, you know the pucker factor is high when merely the TR makes your heart race:

Image

Based on this pic, those jump turn tracks are easily 10' apart.

As usual...epic TR Jim! Nice work everyone :thatrocks:
