how do you guys feel about corn riding? :x

actually, while it isn't the best snow right now, condtions are decent in the alpine. especially above 6g. stable enough to do just about anything. weather looks to be more of teh same with high FL's all week.

problem. I broke my board yesterday. Do any of you have a spare? If not, I know of a few rental options.


What Size board do you ride? I've got a 161 Mojo and a 158 Venture Helix. I'm thinking I'll probably bring both. I only have one set of skins though.

I can do Corn I guess. Warm would be kinda nice. Although, we just got through a five foot storm cycle (in a week!) in Breckenridge.

Well, if you are thinking roped travel, I have a 9mm x 60m. I also have a 8mm x 30m we could tie together and it'd be easier to carry....

8X30 would be plenty enough.

I think one of you guys should be a sacrificial PNW virgin and cancel your trip for the sake of the others.(and us)

you know as soon as you do, that la nina bitch will show up with a vengance just to spite you. cuz that how womens are.

With as much snow as I've had in my back yard, I've been considering it. I'm not canceling though, I want to visit someplace new. Never been to Washington or the cascades before.

I've just got to go buy some crampons now.

I am still in! Damn that La Nina bitch, she's going to get frigid on us, I know it.

As far as the sacrificial bail, we still got Scott. I wouldn't put that one past him...

Leftovers schmeftovers.

Hey Ale, what are you thinking as far as the shuksan ramp (name?), would that be a boot up to the hanging glacier and slide back down? Where the runnel is on lookers right in this pic?

Looking at some of the forecasts it look like snow will be at least somewhat returning this weekend. Crystal seems to be favored. Could we possibly be timing this just right?
