tex Is it you that has all this helicopter madness? sure would be sick to make a legit edit with that toy round these parts..!



yeah, that would be cool. But, Im flying and with all the gear I need to split I would need another person to carry everything for the "drone'
And I need a bunch of Lipos to fly and although Im going to have to one day I havent approached TSA about carring on these batteries.
They are rectangular, have wires sticking out of them and look like bombs. :shock:
If guys are having problems with airbag canisters Im sure 15-20 big lipos will send them over the edge.

Hey everyone, 5 days left to register for this year's event. We just got 12" of the last storm (5"+ more predicted), and over 80" base on the red mountain snotel, so things are looking good. Also, right now, attendees have a 1 in 13 chance of winning a new splitboard (yeah, you heard it right)! We have 3 to give away this year from Neversummer, Voile, and Venture, and about 40 attendees right now. So lots of spots still available for people considering.

We also have some of the most respected people in the avalanche education business coming out this year. All events are covered under the $60 registration fee. Additional raffle tickets to the event will be sold at $10 a piece, and all proceeds go to CAIC.

If you have emailed us and not paid the $60 registration fee, you need to do so prior to April 1st.

Its quite a pain to do it here to be honest. I sent an email the other day to people on companion rescue class, and anyone that emailed prior and hasn't paid.

You and your friend are all set Eric if that is what you are wondering.

Conditions update. Snow came in, about 16" at the end of last week. We do have a bit of trickery in the avalanche conditions, so make sure you start reading up if you are coming:
http://avalanche.state.co.us/forecasts/backcountry-avalanche/north-san-juan/

We found most issues can be manageable, and found good snow up in the alpine.

Also, check this thread for more information on conditions. I put up a bit more detailed on what I was finding. http://splitboard.com/talk/viewforum.php?f=26

Hey tex. There should be shuttles, call the airport. I know there is one to the doubletree.

No shops in silverton, but check out pine needle, backcountry experience, or gardenshwatz outdoor in Durango.
