Any other noobs like me? I've only got half a dozen split tours under my belt, so I'd rather hook up with slower/mellow folks so I'm not an anchor.

Does anyone know if the gas station is open this year? I got screwed last year when the hotel atm was out of order, the gas station was shut down , and the hotel staff weren't interested in doing a cashback deal thru their interac- just something to think about.

Also, everybody should have a look at Todays avi report - raincrust and high danger rating :cry:

after having thought about the conditions the entire day and reading all the reports, it is sadly that me and my buddy will bail on this splitfest... The Sea-to-Sky area is announced to settle quite a bit, so my gas money will more go in the direction of whistler... (shame on me I know...)

have fun peops, and stay safe out there!

Just got back from some great riding, fun scene, at the splitfest. Al and I were stoked to demo and show folks some Chimera splitboards. I got to ride my new 157cm Unicorn Chaser in the pow and loved it. Snow conditions ended up being fresh and fun and plenty powdery, nary a crust in site. Much thanks to Joey and Aaron for showing us around, you guys clearly have it dialed. Karkis, your slide show was killer man! Thanks to Wade for assembling the splitfest. Greg thx for the fuel when I needed it - you should split your next 2 million feet instead of skiing it. Y'all were gracious hosts. Can't forget Swanny from LA. My first trip to Rogers Pass, why haven't I been there before, i love it there, I'll be back. And here's the grand prize winners; dammit I only got a chapstick.

Awesome splitfest! Met some new peeps, saw friends I hadn't seen in awhile, checked out some gear and rode some pow! Feel sorry for anyone that bailed as conditions were awesome. Crust was only noticeable right at the highway and avy conditions were pretty good.

Spent Saturday up in the Hermit area where we got up into the alpine. The long walk (ended up 1100m above the highway) was worth it as we were treated to blower pow and some fun noboard lines. Today I headed up the Cheops area to Napolean Spur for a wicked avalanche chute that led right down to the highway. All in all, a great weekend!

Whoops, sorry if my fear mongering scared anyone off. i mentioned the crust mostly as a consideration for decision making - as punishment i got to deal with about 500 ft of it below avalanche crest on saturday. but everything above that was pretty awesome , and snow today was stellar!

thanks to everybody i rode with, i had a great time - and thanks again to wade for being the longhair mastermind of it all. :thatrocks:
