The Wallowas is definitely on my Oregon splitboard bucket list. The Steens is another area I want to hit up as well. I was only able to find a few trip report and vids on this area.

nwboarder82 - I'm hoping to get to the east side of the Steens this spring. I was going to do it last year but never could get a weather window. In a good snow year, there are turns to be had in the Pueblos as well. Let me know if you'd be interested....

Also, seems there's a number of folks interested in the Wallowas......we should get a group of splitters together next year for a hut trip!

Nice - I'm in if the weather cooperates. I've been eyeing a line on the east side about a mile south of Kiger Gorge that I know will go. Lots of possibilities down there...

So many...

I'll throw in Diamond Peak via the Bear Creek drainage (along with phreadi). And Tumalo also for the ease of access and when Bach is socked in.

Definitely interested in a Wallowas trip next year with other splitters! Headed to Three Sisters yurts in late April for a second visit. Cheers.
