Nice photos, and nice lines... Love the high walled chutes.... Open bowls are great, but when I dream of backcountry lines, they always have towering walls of granite somewhere in them...

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.

Although I gotta say, Hike for Turns and Mountaindog, you guys win for most epic photos of the weekend. Hat off to you guys.

Are you serious? We actually drank all that beer? I thought there was no way. I'm impressed! Nice work, all.
