It started softening up. Good thing no one rode off that cliff...

Pretty cool, but this tree reminds me to not drink the tap water here
We set up camp in Lassen National Park, and decide on riding Mt Diller next morning
Dom on the up

The snow was a tad icy so we hung out and took a few photos and checked out our next stop Shasta in the distance

Dom in full on ski mode

Wham Bam, Deer asada sandwiches

The Klamath Skatepark is the Best skatepark Ive ever been to

:bow:

Dom on a board! With time and Sk8n I think I can curb his two planker bad habit
Image
We sk8ted for ten minutes and it started to rain :cry: It rained non stop until we got to the Tilly Jane Trailhead, and then the skies cleared.
Californian ghetto dryer
Image

We skin up to the hut and are amazed at the depth of the snow
Image

He would ski it
Image

Nice! I was hoping someone would ride off the A frame. We were stoked to have you with us! And yes, Snowshoe Thompson would definitely have taken that same line.

The snow from the car wasn't exactly consistent
Image


Moving a full keg uphill requires many meetings, often to discuss the safety of said maneuver
Image


This smoke was from cooking. Probably.
Image


Speaking of cooking, Elliott carried up chili for 25 and deserved some schwag for his efforts

The dangers of bringing a sleeping bag to a pillow fight

Skinning

Skin track self portrait

The thrill of victory...
Image


...and the agony of da feet

Snapped this pic of three UFOs buzzing the treeline just outside the cabin on Sunday

Goooood times this past weekend, stoked to do it again!

1/3 full? Seriously?? We failed miserably.

Sorry couldn't make it today, had to get something out before the last overnite FedEx shipment went out at 4pm. Spent 3 hours trying to get one of my 3 printers working. Neither of them ever did :banghead: Back to your regularly scheduled stoke, let's see them pics!

PS anybody notice the St. Helens report for tomorrow? 5-9" tonite. WTF

Skinned up to barrel, unstrapped barrel from sled, picked up barrel. WTF, it's a third full! Oh well, strap barrel to external frame pack. Put pack on, 30lb keg, 5 gal o' beer, a little gear = +/- 80lbs. Rode snow available, booted what I had to. Sorry no real riding photos, but partners couldn't keep up with 300 lbs screaming down the mountain.Image

Mission accomplished
