I feel your pain - got two ferry rides every day I go riding, usually twice a week. Usually the drive afterwards is only about an hour or 1.5 to destinations. But, I've done day trips up to Baker several times. It's best not to add up the costs, just remain ignorant and bring a book/mag. You know it's worth it.

Loom, great point on the costs. What i need to do is remember how many $56 lift tickets I did not buy each time I split. This trip involved a Baker lift ticket, but to hook up with, as they say, the legendary Jon Dahl was worth the price of admission.

Tex, yes, I'm still a punk and learning a new trick. I hate the learning curve, which is why I'm so into this forum. Answers to questions, sometimes even before I have them, and even opinions that have proven valuable.

Jack, when is your mountain getting fresh snow? Riding on week or more old stuff is better than not riding, but jcocci took me out on a day that was ridiculously fresh and deep. Now I'm spoiled, but keeping anywhere close to him was a hell of a workout for my lazy ass.

Well, I'm uploading these from tinypic, and I hope it works. Met mumbles at White Salmon for some turns. Originally, I was trying to arrainge a meetup with a few longboard guys, but it washed out. The Rad-Air test rider I know broke his ankle playing rugby, and refried had car trouble, and the rest is history. Sure was looking forward to test riding the 08/09 200 Tanker! The Arm was decent climbing up from the chair, but quickly became icy on the ridgeline. Went from Verts to boots about halfway up, to 5-6 inches of pow after the pyramid. Defered first turns to mumbles 'cause he was so stoked just to be there All in all was a fun day making laps, especially in the bowl off of 8. This was a good shakedown day for my vert setup, mumbles crampon addition will be copied by me. Called 'er a day around 2.30, Monday was a full day of hard carvin' turns at Crystal with a nice little group. Spent Wednesday riding moguls at Whistler. Legs shot, mogul technique improved, and looking forward to some more Baker area exploration with mumbles. On splits....away from the crowds...secret area....bwahahaha![/img]

Jon, great photos from that tiny camera of yours. I'm looking forward to our next outing too. Thanks for hooking up for a good day of exploring and riding. Maybe I will get lucky and we can get some snow for me to demo that nitro swallowtail 181 of yours. I'm glad you liked my vert crampon add on, I will be moving my plate bindings forward like yours. Great exchanging thoughts and ideas, on top of riding, I'd say it was a pretty damn good day.

bcrider, BG and Eco...my story has now been confirmed by an impartial party...and you get some nice scenery and a third photo of my ugly mug.

Glad to hear Jack hit the Shuksan Arm and found some nice snow after our recent light storm. Now i have to get back out there and try a few of the steeper lines that we avoided due to the lack of fresh snow. Jon Dahl and I were eyeing some lines to the north of Shuksan that we think jcocci may have been ripping up while we were out there. Maybe we will wander that way next.
