This entire season I have wanted to bag this bowl. It wasn't epic conditions, and it was already farmed out. I can at least check it off of the list. The skin in was pretty mellow even though I took a million breaks it seemed. I blame running 15 miles and then grabbing the split :lol: I went up with Ryan and we had a pretty fun day. We timed the south facing exit perfect to where the crust wasn't there but it was more like a slushee.


Standing on top of the ridge line, you can see the Oquirhh mountains

Raymond which is a line I want to bag

Looking over to the South side of the canyon.

Here is another one on the list. Gobblers and someone had some ballsy tracks down it.

Here is another one on the list. God's Lawnmower. Slide Path you think?

The view of of Reynolds. I want to hit this bad boy on an untouched day. A nice steep bowl mmmmm
Image

Ryan is in there somewhere. I didn't feel comfortable dropping the line that had more south in the aspect so we stuck with where the tracks were. Wasn't feeling a wet slide today.

Little Water Peak. We originally talked about bagging that summit then hitting Reynolds, but I was too tired.

wow that is a lot of tracks!

reynolds is the first line I rode on a splitboard so it is close to my heart. always a good view from there.

I never see tracks in the bowl on gobblers, cool that some one got it.

Question though:

Why wouldn't anyone hit that? Looks pretty sweet to me.

Like the mellow looking open deciduous forest type stuff on the last pics, don't see that around here. Reminds me of some of the Japan footage I have seen. I have always wanted to rock through that type of forest on a nice pow day :thumbsup:
