Sweet pics.

Is that skiier's leg snapped off at the knee?

Were you guys riding on Kendall Stump or near the lakes?

Thanks for the stoke.

Scott

You guys are some lucky bastards this season. Have fun living it up and be safe out there. I hope you keep getting snow, but the rest of the country would appreciate it if you would share a little more.

Can someone in the PNW tell me where I can find this 'goods' you keep talking about? Exactly how far north will have to drive to get some gnars? Will I be able to find a freshies in Southern Oregon, or will I have to drive farther North? I am starting to go nutz.

I'm leaning more towards the "hate" side (hey I just moved from the Seattle area, I'll hate on them all i want)

There is plenty of fun to be had in Oregon, looks like Batchelor has a 116" base so riding should be good all around the area, no need to go any further north IMO.

A Seattle friend of mine just sent me some pics of freshies with the subject *jab*, I asked her what sunshine was and told her to quit hitting below the belt.

Due to stability and visibility, taking pictures wasn't a priority but here's what I got...

Image
Gregm lost with no tracks to follow and a ways to go...

Image
Hey who put that debris there??

Image
Mr. Slab

Image
Mrs. Slab

Image
The grand daddy of them all. Skier cut on easterly aspect, rollover 30 degrees plus at the top at around 4600ft. Closer inspection revealed a crown at least 1-2ft deep with propagation running couple hundy. Hard to tell how deep the debris pile was but while combing around I did manage to see tree branches snapped and branches that will be growing in new directions. Wish I could have gotten a pic of the avi coming down but all I saw was white smoke overtaking trees. My q to leave.

The slabs that were set off earlier in the day were isolated due to the nature of the terrain and occurred on easterly facing slopes between 5300-5000ft. Steep rollovers on top but petering out below before flattening out and going slightly up hill. The last picture was on a consistent pitch so the slide gained significant speed before losing momentum below.
