Somewhere between Bishop and bridegeport. Thanks for the beta on Dana, wanting a few options , how is Dunderberg? Looking for something for the whole”group” and that looks like a big ole cruser January 10, 2006 at 10:33 pm #585197 powderjunkie 1669 Posts Mt. Tom looks good. Pic taken from Roman at Couloir forum. Of course, I wouldn’t recommend going up there with your “group”. January 10, 2006 at 10:46 pm #585198 TEX 2486 Posts That looks like a big ole cruser to me. Lot easier than anchoring out 3/4 mile and surfing 10-12 ft alone ….like saturday January 10, 2006 at 11:27 pm #585199 SanFrantastico 1514 Posts Speaking of which… Did you see this sick vid from Tuesday? http://surfline.com/video/vids/2006/jan/mavericks0104/player.cfm?videotype=wmp Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968. January 11, 2006 at 2:00 pm #585200 TEX 2486 Posts Very nice. Thanks for the stoke. I had family in over theholidays, did you score good trestles? Its been so good down here for so long. All those storms that brought you rain brought us 8-10 foot for about 3 weeks. I actually downsurfed a 01 foot swell in the boat going back to the marina. Shit THAT was fun January 11, 2006 at 6:33 pm #585201 SanFrantastico 1514 Posts Yeah – I ended up crazy busy with family & friends during xmas, too. I just got one sess in at Tressles on xmas day. It was well overhead but lumpy with a 50% closeout rate. Seems like I keep missing epic conditions by one day. Sorry I missed out on boat-surfing that 10 footer. 🙄 Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968. January 11, 2006 at 8:24 pm #585202 ttriche 116 Posts Be sure and check the avy report before you go up on Tom, Elderberry is a natural avy trap (cf. last year’s incident). If it dumps fast, you might want to change plans. It was quite white last week though. January 12, 2006 at 2:05 am #585203 IceBat 23 Posts If you like that photo, you should check out the rest of my site. I’ve got lots more photos and stuff and…stuff. Roman is my father’s name. I’m going to have to change that handle to stop the confusion. 🙂 Also, second the Avy concerns on Mt. Tom. ESAC’s report sounds a little dicey to me. Andy January 12, 2006 at 8:53 pm #585204 powderjunkie 1669 Posts Hey Icebat, Nice site. Saw it a while ago on thebackcountry.net. Yeah, I’m sure Tom is dicey most of the winter. Looks like an amazing descent. Patroller, hope you find some goods. Sunday/Monday is shapin’ up to be good days. January 12, 2006 at 9:46 pm #585205 StaggerLee 6 Posts Expecting 1-2 feet in Sierras Saturday. Likely to be a fair amount of wind with storm. Would not recommend Elderberry after this storm. If you are looking for BC this weekend, would recommend early Saturday OR stick to inbounds Sunday and Monday…that’s my two cents. January 12, 2006 at 9:58 pm #585206 Zach 127 Posts StagerLee, You just got my vote for the best screen name of all time…. You must be one mean motherf**** Conditions – Went up on Round Top this morning, and it was pretty much a skating rink… makes me worry about what effect this coming storm will have. Could make for a nasty slide bed… also bodes poorly for the rest of the year… unless the storm starts out exceptionally warm and wet… oh’ joy! January 12, 2006 at 11:25 pm #585207 powderjunkie 1669 Posts unless??? of course it will. 😀 Ends with a low snow level though. That should be good for your little slice of heaven. 😛 January 12, 2006 at 11:45 pm #585208 IceBat 23 Posts Zach, where’d that ice come from? Last I saw, the surface was cold windslab–at least around Mammoth. January 12, 2006 at 11:56 pm #585209 Zach 127 Posts It rained up to like 9000 feet yesterday January 13, 2006 at 12:09 am #585210 IceBat 23 Posts Ah…mystery solved. January 13, 2006 at 12:17 am #585211 bcrider 4149 Posts Welcome IceBat! 8) I’ve checked out your site before and see you’ve added some new stuff too. Lots of good info and stoke on there. Re the rain crust. Can’t speak for Mammy but in Tahoe there is also an rain crust from the rain we had a couple of weeks back. It’s already buried on some aspects but not on others. Hopefully the storm will start like it shouldÃ¢â‚¬Â¦warm then cold. January 13, 2006 at 12:25 am #585212 TEX 2486 Posts After further review of the weather forecast, avy bulletins from ESAC, looks like another weekend inbounds 👿 I hope we get some stabile conditions soon, seems like the sierras think they are the wasatch this seasons January 13, 2006 at 12:28 am #585213 dfinn 138 Posts @patroller420 wrote: After further review of the weather forecast, avy bulletins from ESAC, looks like another weekend inbounds 👿 I hope we get some stabile conditions soon, seems like the sierras think they are the wasatch this seasons if only we were getting as much snow as the wasatch 😉 January 13, 2006 at 12:38 am #585214 bcrider 4149 Posts @patroller420 wrote: After further review of the weather forecast, avy bulletins from ESAC, looks like another weekend inbounds 👿 surely there’s got to be some safe tree runs between Mammy and So Cal you can hit? 🙂 just say no to resorts! 😉 January 13, 2006 at 12:54 am #585215 IceBat 23 Posts @bcrider wrote: Welcome IceBat! 8) I’ve checked out your site before and see you’ve added some new stuff too.

I’m very jealous! 🙂 Andy Viewing 20 posts - 1 through 20 (of 20 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
