i never would have considered this one on such a low snow year. but with the rare chance to ride with a very busy friend, why not get a good one.
hiking up convict canyon the night before

Ta hui-"you don't need a wilderness permit if your only sleeping four hours"
Image
the next morning. good to be on skins
Image
getting closer
Image
ta hui starting up the chute
Image
nearing the top of the chute, this view never gets old
Image
gonna enjoy this ride!
Image
the snow was challenging but very edgeable. fun, but it also demanded your full attention at this steep pitch. ta hui.
Image
braaap, braaap
Image
those goggles are that color from the fire in his eyes!
Image
some scenic shots on the way out
Image

a long, hard trip with so much dry ground. but the chute was some of the coolest snowboarding iv'e ever done.

Stoked to see you crushing it, been following the reports. Nice call on climbing straight up that thing; I made that traverse from the summit and almost cried I was so sacred. Last four nights been solo missioning and was thinking about you man! finding some world class corn and some very sunny weather and it reminds me of those days in the Range of Light, except for I am working 8-4 and dropping in from summits at 8,9, or 10 pm. Mike E was up here for two weeks and we set it off in Haines and Valdez; got dropped on a glacier in the St. Elias range by Drake; :headbang: We were talking about you. I am off for a big long otherworldy ski-trip in a few days, going deep. Keep getting it done man and I hope to shred with you again one day.

That one is on the list for sure. Your photos definitely add fuel to the fire necessary to get me out there on a ski (rather than climbing) trip!
