Thanks everyone, for a super fun first run, at the Silverton Splitfest! Looking forward to putting the poster together for next year....got some sik reference material over the week I was shredding around S San Juans with different folks. It snowed 15" in Taos the day I got back home too NM, so Im still getting shreddy., but will post some pics as soon as I weed through the 500+ images I took. Thanks again to everyone who made this such a special event
Finally uploading some of mine. Yeah, not always the prompt one, this kid.

Jacob shredding Kendall Mountain Resort. Very hardcore, very technical.
All in all a righteous time. Huge thanks to John and Jason for pulling everything together. I can't wait for next year, and I definitely hope to see some of you before then.
It's always been a hard thing for me to participate in an online community like this without knowing any of the other users in real life, so it was great to get to meet so many all at once. So thanks to everyone who participated and brought the loving vibe to share.

I cant compete with all the great photos and lines you guys have posted. I will instead do what I'm good at... a little levity
