Hooked up with a couple split boarders while they are in town for their little get together. Riders were Bcrider and his friend Dave. They drove all night from Tahoe, at some grease at Denny's, then met me for some skiing at 7:30am. Burning the candle at both ends.

It was great to finally meet you Trackhead! Thanks for showing us around. We scored sweet conditions and new lines, we couldn't ask for much more.
Good talking with you on the phone Friday morningÃ¢â‚¬Â¦you shoulda came with us.
Dishwasher Dave and I left Tahoe at 9:15pm on Thursday night and rolled into the SLC at 6:30am. The drive was long but our stoke for the trip made it go by quickly. It took us a little longer than last time due to sections of snow in Nevada and western Utah. After a really crappy breakfast at Denny's we met Trackhead at the mouth of Big and set off for a day of turns.
Here are my pics and thanks again TH!
Trackhead and DD heading up the ridge.
TH back for moreÃ¢â‚¬Â¦note the knee deep skin track.
For the next run we touched the summit...
and enjoyed some nice views.
Another party was dropping in on a nearby line, one of which was a Splitfest attendee from Jackson Hole. Nice lines greg!
TH took us to this little gem and even let us get first tracks. What a guy!
Dishwasher Dave slays it.
TH decided to check a slightly different line and was stoked he did. New lines are always good.

now you see himÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
now you don't.
The sun was setting up the powder but we still made the most of it.
At the bottom we practiced skiing our splits (without skins) for the Saturday dj tour before heading back up for one last shot back to the cars.
At this point the 3hours sleep I got in the car the night before was starting to catch up to me. I fell behind a little and didn't end up taking any more pics. The last climb and run down (new for us Cali folks) were sweet though.

Ok, let me start by saying we had the best intensions of joining splitfest and touring with a bunch of new folks, but the powder monsters got us and we were a bit tuckered out to be driving around and instead slacked off at my house in SLC. We shoulda coulda woulda didn'ta................... next year for sure. We got stuck in Schralptown in LCC and just kept getting neck deep. Next year we'll show up to the fest and be social.
But I'll add a couple pics from our tour in Pink Pine in LCC on Sat.
