Met up with the usual suspects and dr. mahkman who's been in Kyrgyzstan for the last 7 weeks. Plan was to check out an area with some steep lines and good snow.

It was a longer approach so we tried to get an earlier start.

Morning sky greeted us with the usual high winds for this area.

Image


After days in the trees, we got a nice look at the options.

Image

little closer and the Dr. liked what he saw!

Image

After summiting and hiking the ridge, we had a small down climb to a nice ledge out of the maching winds.

Image

With the snow pack potentially still a little touchy, Barrows was wise and brought a ...rope!

Image

Image

Spent a good 30 mins if not more checking out the slope.

End of the rope view, little puckery....

Image

Since Barrows carried the rope, we all thought he should get to go first. Aren't we nice?

Image

Image

Looked good. The Dr.'s turn...

Image

And Jer getting in a nice jump turn on the twin planks.

Image


At the bottom, Jer was all grin and why shouldn't he? This was his third day in the BC but getting a great day in. Nice reward for a man who's been working his tail off.

Image

With lots of time left and the snow being nice and soft what else to do? Recycle the up track and get more pow turns in.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

What's the charge? The exit is not snowboard friendly but forces you to master split skiing.

Rad day got a little sweeter as we got to see our lines from the road.

Image

Thanks fellas. :D

Despite the initial pucker factor, it was a great day on big lines and soft snow. Thanks for letting this skier join in the fun.
