Forums Trip Reports Ophir Pass Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) Author Posts March 25, 2011 at 3:46 am #574623 Alx88 42 Posts Went up Ophir Pass this morning and dealt with a gnarlier than expected storm. As soon as we hit the ridge the winds were blowing 40+ mph and colder than a well digger’s bare ass. We managed to make the most out of it though, riding from the top of Battleship Mountain. Good snow down here for sure :doobie: Here’s the video, not many pics turned out as it was socked most of the day, except for our run of course.

Holy god, that’s some balls. 😯 But that did look good and gives me some hope for this weekend! March 25, 2011 at 2:38 pm #638303 jcm 34 Posts Niiiice one on the acid green helix. Maybe winter aint over after all in the San Juans. That’s a big bad avalanche prone bowl and I’ve always been too puckered to drop into it…Well done.

Nice work. :bow: March 26, 2011 at 1:58 am #638305 Alx88 42 Posts To be honest it rode exceptionally stable, not a single crack.. Except for maybe that mini chute half way down. We did NE shots off Kendall this morning (I’m uploading that now), THAT shi* was ballsy. Rode a sick shot, lookers left, between this huge rock that was towards the top, we were calling it the Ivory Tower.. Rode within 1/4 mile of Venture’s shop 🙄 Oh yeah, it’s been consistently snowing since about 10:30 this morning and isn’t showing many signs of letting up, it’ll be good this weekend. Any ideas for tomorrow? We were thinking driving up Red Mountain Pass, or Bear Mountain terrain (ya I know, it’s balls)??
