After spending Sat. catching up on the "List" around home I had to get out Sun to try & catch a line I wanted to get the previous weekend but got rained out.
Nice firm boot-up - the dog's having a little trouble getting a grip though

Looking down the run - sorry - no action photos - was a solo day

The waterfall I had to jump to get down

After getting past the waterfall I had to look back. Snow had been perfect corn all the way down. While looking up I ran onto some super hardpacked old avy deposit which enabled me to rocket suddenly into a large rock before I could get turned ::: the result

The death of an old friend :( . At least now my wife can understand why I need a new splitboard :D

Bummer/Stoked... Sad to see your old friend go down, but I'm sure you'll be stoked to make a new acquaintance soon!!

Not to hijack your thread, but here's my weekend 'ooops'...

Image

I pulled off the road to take a picture of the gorgeous blue ice on Caples Lake, which doesn't show in the photo. :( There was a ton of snowmelt running in the asphalt gutter along the road. I guess the water had eroded about a foot of soil from under the gutter because just as I came to a stop, my left front tire broke through asphalt. You can't really see it, but my rear tire is 8" in the air. I had to wait a few hours for the tow truck, but the driver wenched it out in about 3 minutes.

lewmt - Bummer. For your next board, maybe you should look at ordering a custom Prior? It should arrive by next season. (OK, sorry, that was low... :))

SanFran - Doh! When were you up there? I was at Carson Pass on Sunday, also saw wavy from the forum up there.

It may look bad, but losing your split is much, much worse. I have AAA, so there was no charge for wenching my truck out of the hole and it seems to be running totally fine. It just made for a long day...

Jimw - liketoride and I did the Red Lake Peak shuttle on Saturday. Next time we should coordinate. The snow is going fast, though.
