Of course, I can’t post the picture. Ha. @sun_rocket September 2, 2016 at 5:45 am #793992 Matt Wood 328 Posts We got some snow last Friday backpacking in the flattops. Bought new boots and broke my foot all in the same day yesterday. Awesome September 28, 2016 at 10:03 pm #794900 HikeforTurns 1113 Posts What’s up guys. Sounds like October will provide enough snow for some turns! Getting stoked. Travis Rice film tomorrow.

Today was all-time super-fun time down here and still dumping! January 25, 2017 at 7:33 am #799101 cometogether 385 Posts If I had a resort pass I would probably be riding some of that for sure. I am disappointed in Colorado, we are having an all around EPIC (yep i used that word ) season so far. after basically riding the mountain bike until the end of november, it finally started snowing!! a little late but DANG she has come on strong and we are crushing it right now!!! snow is deep everywhere and stability is surprisingly good. I have been filming everyday I go out and working on edits for each of those days.. it is a pain in the ass to edit but its fun to watch!. Hope everyone is out getting this snow. IT IS GOOD RIGHT NOW!

February 5, 2017 at 4:43 am #799599 Matt Wood 328 Posts CTG I always have more days on my split than my pass;) Riding chairs is abusive on the aging body. Sketchiest conditions I’ve ever seen up here. Buried surface hoar 30 cm below the surface. Triggered a good sized slide yesterday, I was able to ride off it but it scared the bejesus out of my partner and myself. He was posted up in a safe spot and saw the whole path (lucky). Bringing a rope to check out the crown this morning, probably could have done it safely yesterday but I was a little shakey. Be safe February 6, 2017 at 4:20 am #799646 Matt Wood 328 Posts After seeing where I escaped, I’m buying lotery tickets;) Not sure about your backyards but mines a mess. February 6, 2017 at 10:18 am #799667 summersgone 820 Posts Honestly, I’d post more here if my damn company allowed me to put pictures up easier. Stupid ad blocks and crap, I can’t see pictures and it sucks. So I basically have been stopping posting here, but not on the skin track. Went to Japan for 2 weeks, and now back on here, excited to get back into it, and seems another storm coming. I find it interesting Matt you said its a mess by you, I’d say these are some of the most stable conditions the San Juans have ever seen. And its a deep base! But its amazing seeing another snowpack like japan where literally you don’t have to worry about avalanche and can do 8 man party runs. We certainly can’t do that here. Hoping the year keeps up well! I’ve been tagging #coloradosplitboarders lately on IG. February 7, 2017 at 4:27 am #799690 Matt Wood 328 Posts We had a significant surface hoar event 19th -21st of January, it was buried by25-35cm depending on location. It’s WIDEspread and radically reactive. Enjoy your stability! We are going to be meadowskipping for a while.
