Nice fast and flowy.. way to be humble but you've got style.

Curious what was going on with your test. Mostly the scoop and tap. Is that a method of testing storm layers from a safer spot by increasing the slope angle by making your shovel the slope?

Thanks for the stoke guys. I've been studying that line for 10 years now, ridden it over 20 times even skinned straight up it to map all the pops knowing one day things would set up just right to rip it. Yeah, ale that's the shovel tilt test. I got a nice result on one so I pulled out the gopro but couldn't get a clean shear after that, thought it broke up the video a little. Take care.

right on! thanks for the link.

a cool break in the video... and it makes people think about that aspect of the day. i can see that being a very valuable informal test.. often the upper new layers are the biggest concern here. can't wait to give it a tilt. now to find some storm snow.
