The storms have been raging out here in Washington and shit has been going off. I finally broke down and went to the Crystal on thursday (its been over a month) to get over a foot of fresh in the resort and nipple deep doing a 410 run off the backside best of all it was bluebird.

and now Sunday......

It was a early morning once again as we skinned up the Silver Basin
Image
Hopefully ski patrol doesn't bomb us
Image
Goodbye Silver basin
Image
Hello Crystal Lakes basin
Image
Kill it scott but dont fall cause you may not be able to get up
Image
By far the sickest conditions Ive had on this run
Image
Lets get up this bitch ASAP
Image
Almost at the ridge
Image
I hope I dont slide down this bitch
Image
all is good but it looks like a front is coming in
Image
View from the summit of Crystal Peak
Image
NOOOOOOO how could someone put a skin track up the chute on the north side that should be against the law :cry:
Image
Looks like were going to have to do this line instead
Image
Riding the ridge to the drop in point
Image
Scott killing the line
Image
Why does the sun have to tease us
Image
This time we are dropping straight down
Image
And it was good
Image
Is the sun going to stay this time
Image
We have to kill that chute
Image
but lets check out this cave first
Image
After a few minutes its time to get on the road
Image
god this looks epic
Image
but it looks even more epic from up here
Image
Dropping
Image
Image
Image
Yes sir may I have another
Image
Sadly its time to leave but we can end it off with Big Bertha which is over 3000 vert of Waist deep all the way down to 410
Image
and were out ( after 6 miles on the closed down highway that I use more in the winter then in the summer)

Enjoy

I generaly enjoy TRs with out having to comment. but this one gets me breathing heavy. I live for days when the pow is blowing over your head and your shreading drainage after drainage. solid effort.
