    Thanks everyone for the great suggestions! That last one about parking at CT seems to be the best idea yet. I’m really looking forward to a great season this year, hope to catch up with a bunch of you guys soon.

    Actually the plan for the day was to go to Sugar Bowl and pay the $25 for an uphill ticket. But my beginner bailed on me. I wasting a day setting up his board and ended up with no partner for the day. Then I come here and read a really friendly response to my post to just really make my day! Thank so much!!!!

    So sorry to have “Irked you” I will try and be more careful the next time I post here….. which will be a very long time.

    Sorry, I’m a little late to the party but it looks like you made a great choice! I’ve been a Sony shooter for 6 years now and I’m currently making a go at being a pro active lifestyle photographer.

    I’m really into mirrorless cameras right now and I’m shooting the big brother to your camera, the A7. I’m also into street photography and legecy lenses. That’s the really cool thing about mirrorless lenses, there are a lot of cheap adapters available to mount almost any 35mm lens made in the last 75 years! This goes for Oly and Fuji too! You can pick up some older, fast prime lenses for really cheap and experiment with the different looks of the lenses. I just picked up a Pentax manual lens, 135mm f3.5 for $50! Not really fast but light, compact and sharp!

    If you have any questions about the Sony gear, feel free to ask. Also, I’m very good in Photoshop and Lightroom. 🙂

    PS: Jerrett, Sony makes all the sensors for Fuji! ……..also Nikon, Pentax and Oly, to name a few.

    I met Wade at the first Mt. Baker Splitfest and we talked till 3:00 in the morning about how to set up a Splitfest. I had a couple of contacts with him afterwards but I really felt like we redefined the meaning of a Splitfest that night. He went on to create the Chunnuck Splitfest and it was a huge success. So much so that the Mt. Baker Splitfest had to step up its game to try and keep pace, it was a friendly rivalry.

    The Splitboard community lost a good friend when Treepilot passed. His impact on the sport will not be forgotten.

    In heaven it’s always powder day so Treepilot is in the white room forever.

    Good fun this weekend. Great to meet everyone and share some stories.

    I’m not sure where to put this link to some of the better photos I took this weekend. Can you put this link in a iFrame? Then the lazy peeps don’t have to click on a link and leave this site.

    I just booked one of the last three spots this afternoon. Stoked to get out there. Looking for a laid back crew, this will be my first tour of the season so I fully expect to get my ass kicked. I’ll be coming in late on Friday night. Save a place for me in the snoring section 🙂

    I finally got my shit together enough to actually make over there for this event. Are there any openings in the lodge? I’ll be driving over from the East Bay so if someone wants to car pool, give me a shout.

    Yes! The coast in Sonoma was incredible! I had a great shoot out there.

    Thanks everyone for the offers but I’m back in the PNW. I really need to plan better on the next trip. I’ll be coming down for the Tahoe Splitfest so maybe I’ll extend that time and get some more shoots with some of you.

    But now that I’m home I’m looking for outdoor peeps in the PNW. Same deal, hiking, biking, fishing, hunting. Whatever your sport, I want to shoot it.

    Wow! Great responses, I knew I could count on the sb.com crew!

    Looks like the plan is to head over to Yosemite and try and make some new friends and then up to Tahoe later in the week depending on the weather of course.

    Fustercluck, I’d love to shoot you hucking the pier! I’ll pm you when we head that way.

    Still open to anything else along the way so contact me is you want to do a shoot.

    I’m Terry the originator of the Mt Baker Splitfest. If you have any questions for me please e-Mail me, I sent you a note.

    Great to see all the love on here for the Mt Baker Splitfest.

    Ale, I have no idea who you are speaking of so he was of no inspiration for the Mt Baker Splitfest. The inspiration for the first Mt Baker Splitfest was this forum and the lack of something in the PacNW.

    Damn, you did work! 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 valley

    edit: 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!

    Cool by me! 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!
