So I just moved up to pemberton for the start of my 4 month snow-bum adventure. I'll just use this thread to post all my pics/videos instead of making a bunch of threads. So scroll down to the bottom for the latest!

So summarize so far, we have had almost 2 meters fall in the 9 days. It buried the somewhat suspect early season snowpack on the bc south coast, and replaced it with typical coastal concrete stability. No sun yet, but lots of pow and treeline stuff. So tons of riding and lots of great friends to share it with!

Week 1 video:

Week 2 Video:


I have some pictures too...too lazy to deal with those tonight though...

Epic work guys! Keep it coming. One month deep into our own ski bum adventure around Revelstoke. Rogers Pass is just amazing at the moment. Haven't had time to get any pics or vids sorted yet. If your over this way send us a message. Will be cool to ride with some other splitboarders.

So high pressure rolled in for a few days. Unfortunately the flu hit me today, so I had time to do this video from jan 10th. The snow is stable and good for shredding alpine lines!

This run is one of my favourites so I figured it would be a good choice for the first alpine day of the season. I call it nuclear explosion couloir, because every time I have done it in the past, there is a slight wind coming up over the ridge blows your powder turns way up in the air. Really it is just off joffre shoulder in case you are wondering. I don't know if it has a real name. But it is one of those awesome lines you can see form the highway to show all your friends next time you drive over the duffey.

This was the first time Johanna has been up to hit a line like this, so she was a big nervous on the boot back up the 45-50 degree slopes at the top. But she made it, and shred it to pieces...as did I. And because I am nice, I broke trail the entire way up - all 1200m of the run...it hurt just a little bit.

View of the destination from the highway:

Almost there Jo...

And the video!
