Its been a lean year in the Sierra. This is my only trip report from my Home base this season :(

The drive up in the wake of the storm

Image

We started out inside June Mountain Resort. We had no clue what the snowpack was like so June would allow us a few tree laps , then enjoy their open gate policy to slip out back to the negatives. It was a good plan

Hey , it looks like winter out here

Nice work & way to get after it fellas!

Jbay- I can’t believe I stayed in Socal, to boot- my BC partner quit on me 15 minutes into the skin up Baldy so we waited in line with everyone else. DOH!

I think that shot of SDMark dissappearing says it all, but here's some crappy phone pics to add. I got a few shots from the next day at Powerhouse, but given my conversation with JimW afterwards, I think he'll probably be putting up a separate TR for Sunday, and I'll post them up there. Good times guys...great crew, great snow....great reminder of why I love the eastside, even in it's lean years.

MaxP, you need to meet Swanny. Reach out. He got 8k of pow in the socal mtns this weekend. ;-)

Duck the rope, get a quarter mile of mellow tree riding in untouched pow, transition, skin:

Climb, dig:

Ride (I have shots from my camera memory, but I can't get them into my computer yet. I have a couple of Tex too, so I'll get them posted as soon as that new usb cable comes from Amazon).

As though Ullr himself smiled upon our day, it cleared on the skin back out:

And Jimw stopped to daydream about some death defying line he did off the other side of Mt. Wood:

Horrible down low. All the approach roads are open. But it's not bad up high. We had to skin back to the resort to descend safely because the choke and deadfall on the bottom pitch wouldn't sucked.

Then again, so did the rocks on the cattrack between the lodge and the parking lot.

Here's Carson and the slide on Sunday:

Here it is from last June:

Good work!

Not sure if you got up for a Friday morning session on the lifts, but J7 was crazy good.

No...I didn't get into town til Friday PM, but it was easily my best session at MM all year...I can only imagine how good June must've been. We didn't start this tour til after noon (California Alpine flavor) but we did spin J7 (me Tex and SDMark) that morning before we headed out.

Nice TR. Looks like a lot of the Cali folks didn't let this last cold winter blast pass them by... Great snow, and a sweet run among the slim pick'ns we have this year. Sad to see it completely skip the regular corn cycle for this weekend...

And yah, good action shots... Always love the Houdini shots, disappearing into the white room only to pop out a second later, all smiles...
