I only took ~75 pics (most of which were garbage as I hadn’t shot in awhile and apparently forgot how to account for light :scratch: ) as I was too busy being a gaper. Took some of some randoms, took some of the crew I met up with, will update thread as I get time. If anybody wants the originals it’ll cost you a donation to the NWAC.If y’all know this dude I’ve got a few of him from when I was relaxing in the valleyedit: assume you intended this as a photo dump thread for all, if it was just for your personal pics lemme know and I’ll start a diff thread!

The cabin in glacier was sick and we were stoked to get a few people out on chimera boards. thanks so much to everyone that put on the fest and Pete at chair 9. It was cool to meet bcrider, russman, jcocci, kyle miller and everyone else on this board. :thatrocks:this season in the wasatch has been super lame so riding the chute on mt. ann in good snow was one of the highlights of my season for sure! I’ve got 400 something photo’s to wade through from our little road trip but i’ll put some up soon. March 27, 2012 at 9:21 pm #653624 sketchyT 280 Posts @bigdood wrote:Damn, you did work!

Load the photos up on here. Love these shots!I’m going to be writing a article on the MBSF to submit to snowboard rags. If anyone wants to get a shot in the article, let me know so you can send me the orignal, high res file… . I’ll also need to get a release from you. There’s no money in this, just a by-line. Keep in mind not all photos submitted to me will make it into the article but you can’t get your shit published if you don’t try. I don’t even know if I can get my article published but I’m still going to write and submit it.BTW, Great weekend! This event has such a great vib, it really has become the highlight of my season!-=t March 27, 2012 at 11:59 pm #653625 Colin 153 PostsTerry–hit me up.

I had a great time and couldn’t have asked for better conditions, weather, and hosts. :thumbsup:Awesome to hear how much money was raised as well. :thatrocks:I’d like to think the exposure the event received on splitboard.com had a positive effect on the overall outcome of the event and as such would be grateful for the opportunity to run your write-up on the site.

April 8, 2012 at 12:32 am #653629 bcrider 4150 PostsCross post from the TR forum.The Olympics, just one small piece of the cascades Straight from the airplane to the skintrack in under 2hours. My kinda tour too….straight up from the lot! Thanks spicoli! :thumbsup: About 3/4 the way up, looking over to Alpental Chair Peak (I think) Met a mutual friend on the skintrack, Adam. He does the honors on “the slot” I’m stoked No shots within the line due to safety but here’s spicoli on the apron Towards the exit notch we go but not before a few more turns…. (spicoli pics) wiping the lenses clean from the cascade concrete 😉 Rainier The road to Mt Baker Mt Baker ski area which ironically is nowhere near Mt Baker proper and sits on the arm of Mt Shuksan Kyle, Ben, and Jon heading out for some sidecountry. Props to the ski area for allowing uphill traffic! Table mountain and the sidecountry, no wonder so many good riders call this place home On the skinner The skinner and booter up Table Mtn Topping out on table, can you tell I’m stoked to be here The view didn’t suck, Mt Shuksan Baker proper Jcocci getting some with the rest of the crew on deck in the upper left corner Too many tracks on the frontside so off to the backside we go, pic by Nomad Good snow makes for good turns More Mt Baker….next year! Kyle Miller b.s. spayin’ nomad rides strong and is fun to watch Chilling in the condo Friday night demo set-up and meet-n-greet at Chair 9 and a stoked lady splitter with the new Prior AMF and 12/13 Spark Blazes. The bluegrass band was good too but the dude kept getting closer and closer when he saw the camera….awkward. 🙂 The next day we aim for Shuksan Da crew Getting over an old avy crown = scary More skintrack stoke and amazing views (nomad pic) Kyle Miller out front (nomad pic) Getting on the upper Curtis glacier John on the booter Almost there Shuksan summit proper Glacier Bandit (nomad pic) Kyle on the glacier before the lines drop off into oblivion (nomad pic) The descent didn’t go quite as planned so no riding pics but if you look close you can see our tracks to the right down the White Salmon glacier Nomads pic and annotations. Our intended line in red (which nomad was able to barely make through safely due to ice), green is the rest of the group’s descent, yellow is another group of splitter’s line from the day 9hr day, 7k of vert, and a day I’ll never forget with a great crew. Thanks guys! 8pm Saturday night at Chair 9, by 9pm it was standing room only. Big ups to the organizers, all the sponsors, and attendees! The next morning the Karakoram boys set up some stoked splitters with demo bindings, Chad from Jones snowboards throwing the shaka. The next day back to the Baker sidecountry where I crossed paths with the Chimera crew and wasatch surf. Great to see you guys! On the road back to Seattle. Kyle and John taking in the view at Chuckanut Bay. Day 5, to Kyle’s backyard in the Crystal Mountain backcountry we go, jcocci slashin’ Kyle on run 2 Seattle and Mt Rainier in the distance. I’ll be back for sure! Hopefully with the family someday too. Thanks again to jcocci, mrs jcocci, and the rest of my WA friends for the hospitality! you rule! :thumbsup: April 8, 2012 at 4:53 pm #653630 ale_capone 864 PostsWow! Looks like I missed a really good time. Really sorry I couldn’t make it, but that’s what happens when mbsf goes down the same weekend as my girls b-day. Had company and airport dropoffs and stuff too. Maybe next year.Nice work Bob, and everyone else who contributed to making it happen. April 11, 2012 at 8:02 pm #653631 russman 692 PostsMega stoked!
