    Still trying to decide where to go this coming weekend. 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

    Mt. Tom looks good. Pic taken from Roman at Couloir forum.

    Of course, I wouldn’t recommend going up there with your “group”.

    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

    Speaking of which… Did you see this sick vid from Tuesday?

    Putting the poo in swimming pool since 1968.

    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

    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. 🙄

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    unless???
    of course it will. 😀

    Ends with a low snow level though. That should be good for your little slice of heaven. 😛

    Zach, where’d that ice come from? Last I saw, the surface was cold windslab–at least around Mammoth.

    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 should…warm then cold.

    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

    surely there’s got to be some safe tree runs between Mammy and So Cal you can hit? 🙂

    just say no to resorts! 😉

    Thanks! Haven’t received any death threats yet, so I think I’m doing good. By the way, splitboard.com is killer. I’m very jealous! 🙂
