Hooked up with Jesse and Ellis this weekend from Thrillhead Creations. Their trip turned out a little different than planned. Temperatures were ridiculously cold (-50 wind chill in the Tetons). Two feet of depth hoar with four to five foot hard slabs on top of that kept us off biglines. Then a storm moved in leaving us tent bound for a day. But there was plenty of time for camping, chillin', and getting a little bit of riding and skiing in. It is always nice to ride with new folks and enjoy the backcountry.

Looks like some tasty rides....seems like its just not the year for huge lines anywhere. The 2' death crystal layer seems to be prominant everywhere.

Sweet trip!

"Two feet of depth hoar with four to five foot hard slabs on top"

Whoaa, I thought Colorado had problems! Did you guys get some fresh out of that arctic blast last week?
