This is my first TR on splitboard.com. Headed out with TopherVW and Gilbert to Silver Basin from Crystal Mountain after a few feet of light fluffy snow fell in the mountains. It was bitter cold and windy as well, but the snow was deep and we have been deprived of snow up until this storm. So it was good to get out and enjoy the kind of snow that more often falls in the Rockies than in the PNW. Only a few pics because the camera froze up.

Despite all of our water valves freezing and the subzero temps, overall it was still a good day.
It was cool meeting you guys and welcome to splitboard.com We did have some stability issues on Sunday. while skinnning up a chute facing NE I felt the snow compact and a crack formed about 10 feet above us so we turned around. Finally its winter again here in washington As for this weekend ?? Probably working for the ski school sunday as for today I need some rest
