    WE GOT FACE SHOTS THE WHOLE WAY UP!!!

    Rughty and I met up w/ jibmaster at the Brewer Cr trailhead Tuesday night to tour up hotlum-wintun to find snow for the first turns of the season.

    Car camping at trailhead:

    On our way!:

    As soon as we got outta tree line the winds picked up:

    This winds had their way with the snow the last few days. We stopped at 10,800 ft just below the steeper part of the hot-tuna snowfield. We actually found the best turns just below treeline. Easy skinning/riding to and from the cars. Not a bad tour to start the season :thumpsup:

    Nice meeting and riding with you jibmaster :headbang:

    Very.
    Well.
    Done.

    Those windy shots of the suspended spindrift make me think I’m not exactly ready for winter.

    Nice skiing with you guys. That was a blast! Literally!

    Just enough snow at the TH to skin from the vehicles and ski/ride back.
    The winds above treeline were pretty strong.

    Sunrise at treeline.

    I awoke this morning to discover I had uploaded the wrong videos!
    :scratch:

    The correct ones are uploading now…

    ^Nice video!

    Had some extra minutes on the helmet cam, so turned it on for the drive out.
    From the TH to the pavement. Shows how much snow we drove over to get to the TH.
    I leave the ebrake on for awhile and almost trash the Jeep.

    ^Such a great album. It’s like the album Willie Nelson have made years back if he did even way more drugs. If you don’t know, “12 Greats” refers not the songs on the album (there are not 12), but rather the Nashville session musicians that the Ween bros hired. The album is simultaneously both a wicked parody, and a sincere heartfelt tribute to old-time country. It’s straightforwardly beautiful and 3 layers bugged the f out at the same time. Also I really hope this season is the one I get to visit Mt Shasta.

    Niice! It’s also reinforcing to see I’m not the only one who rides with sharp objects right by my head. I’ve eat shit plenty of times too and have yet to get stabbed in the brain. Always thought maybe theres a better way to carry the ax and poles but I’m not sure there is.
