I may or may not have spotted something white up on Roberts with the break in the clouds this morning. Government funded shredder here looking to skin up with the sun and shred till dark.

Yea, it's going off kids! Have had a fun couple of days checking in on local stuff.

Like Sunday skiing on a splitboard...

Image

Checking out some fuzzy snow in the Plewman Basin Tuesday...

Image

Angry beavers making up some new obstacles for this early season...

Image

Plewman glades had decent melt freeze crust going on. Made for some stupid fast low angle riding. Kinda grabby in spots though...

Image

Gotta finish up with hucking some stump-to-highway gaps...

Spent last night at the Igloo Hut. Went up Cutblock Ridge and dropped in the north chutes. Best turns of the years yet! I think we were the first folks up to the hut since fall, had to shovel 3-4 feet down to it & the firewood. Someone has done some work, no more plastic, nice new tin on the front. The stove is missing the door, I bent up a piece of spare tin & that works all right.

Bueller....? It's been puking blower for 48hrs at least. Don't tell me you're all up at the hill paying $66 a day to stand in a line, cross other folks tracks and traverse corduroy and mashed potatoes to do it all again. It's steeper and deeper elsewhere....

Matt, if you do make it out this way, you've always got a couch in the hut.

It's about a 5hr drive from Revelstoke, if you time the ferry right. 23 down to the Upper Arrow Lake/Galena ferry. Down to Nakusp, hang right onto 6. Down through the Slocan Valley, dream big lines while looking over at the Valhallas. Hang a right onto 3 at the junction and south till morning.

Funemployed for the time being yea, looking at getting some remote camp work, so hard to say what my exact schedule is gonna be. No wheels either, really dirt bagging it!

Our line down was the dog leg from the summit on lookers left of the face in the photo. Goat Chutes were looking pretty shitty.

Made such good time on the main objective, we rewarded ourselves with some dessert. Put in a boot pack and launched off rocks on Hanna.
