mmcpheet led a strong pace through the Hansel and Gretel forest and soon we were on the ridge of our final descent.
I had a wild idea I might be able to throw a new variation into this tour by adding a quick line down one of the popular couloirs in the area. Gimpy and kellie were hitting them today and I could see their juicy looking remnants. Nice lines!
It was 3pm which meant hitting them would put us back on the ridge by 4pm at best and back to the car by 5:30pm. We opted to save the idea for another day.
We still had some fun skiing to do back to the car so we were on it.
In the trees the snow was still light and dry"¦I got a little on my face.
We made it to the car just before 5pm (about 9hours from car to car) and went to go get the other shuttle car. After getting the car it was all about pizza and beers.
Back home we had some skins to dry for another day tomorrow.

Nice TR and photos. Holy shit breadbox, that is a HUGE air! Nice! First we had the \"Should bcrider chill out?\" thread... now maybe we need the \"Should breadbox chill out and stop making the rest of us look bad\" thread.
Seriously, looks like a good time was had by all. Hope to get out there with you guys one of these days...
