    My buddy Bill agreed to drag my no sledding experienced ass out to his “secret” spot near Quincy. I’ve ridden sleds a few times but only beginner shit. This was waaay more intensive and far out than I was expecting. I’ve never doubled up on a sled before and before I knew what was going on we were way out in some very complex terrain even for an experienced sledneck. I’m glad to say a dead stob in the bicep, one tip over, and one true stuck sled was the extent of our complications. Big time props to Bill taking me back there. He’s only been snomo’ing for 4 or 5 years but he’s got mad skills.

    Bill is a businessman. He has a Droid. Gotta work while you play!

    We soon arrive atop our objective:

    The snow was pretty nice. This area has some serious bang for the buck. Everywhere I look there is a sick line.

    Stoked!

    Bill likes to call this place little cham. Pretty obvious why:

    Time to skin up and out.
    Right away I see this nugget which branches off the chute we just rode. Siiiick! Seeing how we were way out and limited on time we didn’t climb it (not as steep as pic looks really):

    A little splitbooting broke up the skinning:

    No, it’s Bryce….or Bruce 😉

    Chris, but 80 is nowhere near Quincy! I still haven’t converted to the darkside. I’m sore as faak today. And 10-14k for something that I could easily roll down a mountain…..

    If I ever dissed you for riding a sled, I dont remember it. Are you sure? hell, I always ask Buffy to take me out sledding, Tommy wants to go…and I was towed behind one in wyoming and had a blast. Kinda redneck wakeboarding. Dont think it was me. You have me confused with somebody over at TTips

    And as far as BG’s first name, its Bruce Bryce Benjamin Brooks Billybob knightstick

    BG,
    We were 12-15 miles north off 80 down near Yuba Gap so I think as a crow flies we were closer than you think but maybe not. As for being sore, yeah you’ll use different muscles and its a lot of work, especially doubling. No need to spend that much either. You can find some decent older workhorses for a couple G.

    Tex,
    Just playing. Maybe it was just the tall T thread. Come up and ride!

    When I saw the topic I thought “there goes BGs rep”, not so, sick lines sick pics . BCrider I only wish I could see your pics they haven’t been showing up lately. Sled splitting is what it is, not for all of us but deserves it’s place. I enjoy earning my own.

    P.S Your buddy has one of the sickest packs ever, a couple years late…. but I lost that pack this year 😥

    Yes, welcome to the darkside.

    Are you guy riding side by side? It’s a skill and should be an Olympic sport.

    Canadian tandem vs. Alaska tandem?
