I finished off with a pathetic 1 day performance on rainier's turtle snowfield last weekend... my partner John plotz toughed it out and went down the wilson headwall.(the top of teh cliffs lookers right of the dots.

haha,, safety meetings would be on the uphill, but all the dots would have over cluttered the scenery.

Your right Buell, what the hell am I thinking?

Like what you did over there on TGR.

But seriously, dude, how did you miss Mt. Marcy, NY or Mt. Mitchell, NC??? They are the GNAR! :wink:


Nice season (for the Ice Coast)!

Yeah, you are going to have to move somewhere else to call your season over.

This is from Saturday (before the weather) from 6500 feet. Only 4300 to the summit!

Nice work Ale! Congrats on a sweet season and some fine photos! I'm in agreement with Buell - keep up the stoke!

Thanks for the photo Buell. Now you have me inspired..

Rico...

Thanks. I wrestled with where to post all that. Seemed a little skier heavy for here or other snowboard sites I visit.. Tooooo many pics for TAY. I lurk on TGR a little and figured the content more fitting. Plus, some of the people I went out with this year are regular postersr. If anyone on TGR can even be considered regular.

thanks matt.. Nice stuff on diamond. way to keep your streak going!

Me too. I was looking at the Talum glacier off Sherman Peak and was thinking of another long drive this weekend, but the weather looks poor. I cannot make it for Friday. Rebecca could not be happier. :wink:

Its all good! I have had plenty of climbing for the season. Enjoy it for me.

Squak is still amazingly smooth.

Best birthday ever, but unfortunatly, with aging, the mind is the first thing to go... that or it's all the drugs and alcohol. Second time i was in the general vicinty, when my much needed equipement was still at home.

Luckily a quick phone call to Sam tha Man(TGR), and I was hoooked up with a pair of 2 size too big ski boots and gigantic praxis reverse side cut rockered pow skis. i could not push them big bitches all the way up, and turned around @ about 9,500' when Jeff came down on his return from the summit.

i met a guy the other day at a ski shop in wanaka... we got to talking splitboards and he said he'd done some touring with kyle miller a few years back. small world!
