if you have to have a motto thats not a bad one. KA abides

best thing about having your skins on half an hour from the door. make an 11-3 tour worth while.

the highway lines are funny. 20 people followed us into this one. they kindly stopped to let us break trail all the way. when we asked them where they were going, I shit you not, the guys told us they were just following us to see. not not even a single thanks for the skin track!!! dropping into the dark side round 2. good thing its not on the map or some one else might have skied it ;)

-15 in the duffey is unheard of! But it results in awesome snow...



When in doubt kids, straightline it out.

After 4 days of -25 temps, it's back to normal on the coast. Actually, yesterday was the best day of the year, but I didn't take my camera because I thought it would be way too cold (-26 at the highway + wind). But there was an inversion, and it bluebird and blower. Oh well. Today was pretty good too after it warmed up from -26 to -3 in 24hrs.

What do you do in pemberton on a -30 celsius down day? Go drive your land cruiser on frozen snowmobile trails until you get stuck!

But we would way rather be riding...

Ben lining up a pillow line (video soon), he stuck it.

Taft - the eastern bloc chutes got its name from someone I know who followed us and our track to the location and then asked me = hey the people in our group aren't the best skiers - how do we get down the easy way. We told them "there is no easy way"

OK back to more splitter love

One person here is a splitter

and more storm shred - that's all we got here - snow, snow and more snow. Was snowing 4cms/hr yesterday and windloading the hell out of everything. This was from earlier the week
