now this is one cool tr, but if you ever tried shit like that around here, (as in two at a time down a slope, even in the trees which can be 50+ degrees) you'd soon find your self with out people to ride with. must be nice to have that sort of confidance in the snow pack.

That portion of the chute wasn't very steep. I think maybe if you tilted your head the right way you could make it 30deg.
The upper, steeper sections were all ridden via "leapfrogging" from safety to safety.

Nice avi quarterbacking though. :thumpsup:

I apoligize for being a dick. i had a couple shots of whiskey in me. I just get freaked out when I see people doing weired things. maybe part of is the fact that i'm mentaly mounting a rescue mission for a couple friends who desided that the spring climax avalanche cycle was a great time to tie into a super hairy traverse.

i'm a dick, sorry.

No sweat man.
Way to man up and own it.

Just so you know, hft, adimmen and I discussed and evaluated a bunch of lines until we could all three agree on what would go the safest, while still maximizing the fun coefficient. I'm sorry your friends aren't making the best of decisions right now and I hope that they emerge safely with nothing more than some hairball stories.

I'm sure you guys know what you doing. just like i'm sure my friends are either using short weather windows to cover ground or they are hunkered down shredding pow lines inbetween session of spooning in the tent. (think trains planes and automobiles, "those arnt pillows"). :drinks: :thatrocks:

I believe some of those pics are from Bear Mtn off of South Mineral Rd, the views from up there are amazing. We skied that earlier this year. Sulton has alot of good lines from that view point. Did you guys hit Chattanooga cooley on the U-turn off of Red. Digging pits around here is quite intertaining now uh, hopefully those storms are over and done with.
