Climbed mt Baker from the car two consecutive days this weekend with a couple of friends. Very strong skiers and I am fortunate to be able to ride with them.
Day one we rode some ugly variation of getting awesome turns un teh upper north face, tehn wrapping around the nose. Day two we rode the coleman headwall direct.
Hands down one of the raddest lines I've been on this year.


connect the dots. the ones that go lookers right are from day 1.

Holy shit dude! This is SIIIICK!! Coleman Headwall is a serious f***ing place!

How many snowboarders do you think have dropped that thing? Not too many I'm guessing!

Also, nice job getting on it 2 days in a row. Back to back 6000 foot days is ROUGH!

Seriously sick work Alecapone. Who were your partners if you don't mind me asking. Its a small world afterall...

PS. Lets hook up and shred.

PS. #2: That death traverse looks DEISEL.

Isn't traversing 50 degree slopes above certain death amazing? :)

my pleasure

I'm just glad I didn't talk about how rockin my hard boot setup is. I'd be a little upset if my shit turned into a train wreck.


Messed up part was we could have avoided the traverse and had sweeter exit.
