TR - 4/7/07 Better late then never

Attendees: Spthomson, Killclimbz, IridePow, Steve, HikeforTurns

Location: Sol Vista Backcountry (near Mt Sneffels)

The day before plans were hatched, and we arranged to meet at the Sol Vista parking lot. We left a car there, then shuttled up towards the top of Mt Sneffels for the drop in. After about an hour trek, we were greeted to this nice looking east aspect, nicely loaded with some fresh pow:

We did some quick stability checks, then started things off with a low consequence line.

Spthomson:

Killclimbz is in there somewhere:

there he is, coming up for air!

Killclimbz, with Cody in tow.

After that, stability and snow conditions were deemed: Favorable. So we moved on to some steeper stuff. Spthomson checking that out:

IridePow living up to his screenname:

Killclimbz dropping in:

I think he likes his Never Summer Splitter.

Pondering the insanity....

Cody:

That run was fun, who says Sol Vista doesnt have steeps?

Last lap, Steve getting a taste:

Proof HikeforTurns was there too: (photos by Killclimbz)

More pondering.....

Yes.... you can definitely say that day was a major score!

Some of the best, smoothest turns of the year for me.
