    Thanks to you as well Jason. For dispensing so much knowledge on the terrain and where good spots are and arent. HAHA Definetly want to do some trips with you. Hopefully before V2, cause DAMN TFR mountains look tiny now. 😥

    Hey CT: while I agree in general, one can find some bigger lines in TFR. Check out the “Emperor” on the true N side of Torreys, ~3K’ of steep descent in an interesting couloir system. One of the best “bigger” lines around here, although perhaps not this year (but one solid spring dump will bring it into condition).

    Kendall is a ~4k descent that is damn fun. Last year the conditions were AWESOME for it. CT, if Kendall looks better next year, you def need to do that line. Sultan is about the same distance from the top, but not as sustained vert. Both as sweet, and the longest vert runs without a transition I’ve ever done.

    Lets hope for some spring dumps. But looks like almost 10 more days of sunshine, riding may be done… 😥

    CT, send me a PM if you make it down here prior to next years fest. I’d be happy to show you around. There may be a few more places to ride that I didn’t reveal 😉

    SOUNDS GOOD!! I will def make it out that way again, and for more than two days- thats for sure. I will be a much stronger/faster splitter next year, considering Ive owned my splitboard for only one month. The southern mountains have remotivated me. :rock: Barrows– Im always down to tour ANYWhere near here, just want to be out and about getting better, learning more. Ive done dead elk in rmnp already and that was fun. Thanks everyone for being so awesome to the noobs. And for me I really do think. Splitboarding is the answer!!!

    ^ Should have some pics up in the next day or two. Pretty easy skin up the northeast ridge, then a couple hundred foot bootpack. Not the longest sustained vert, but I would do it again!
