Oh yeah, interesting side note. Back at the car I ran into another splitter in the parking lot. He needed a ride back to his car a little ways down the road. We got to talking, and it turns out it was bcd's friend Kevin Smith! You know, the guy who is in all the rad pictures in Dan's book. It was his first time out to Roundtop riding Crescent. Small world.
Small world, indeed. I was about to bail on Tallac as there was no one there and I didn't feel like breaking trail solo. Kevin showed up solo and we joined forces for a sick run on the Great One. As good as it gets, no matter what time of year.

I understand Carson got pow from the storm that passed through yesterday. Variable pow/wind slab at Mammoth, supposedly really good in wind protected areas. We rode combo of windboard and wind deposited pow up to 12" in North Couloir Mt. Emerson yesterday. Severe winds in the Buttermilks, up to 100 mph in Mammoth last night.
