Worse than last year if you can believe. There is actually some hope on the horizon, but I am not putting much stock in it at this point.

schedule didn't work out for anybody for this...

ended up going out sat thru monday on the north side of 2..wasn't carrying a camera this weekend, but I'll see if I can find some media flaoting around the webz.

sat..

me and saign from splitboard met up with the duke of delridge and four more to make seven on skyline ridge... dropped dark bowl and the talus field was dangeroulsy open. 5 out of seven ended up in holes. it was like a game of wahck a mole with heads poppin up hear and there. fortunate it was all laughs. then we road the south slopes off the same summit as happy and angry faces for some nice open pow turns. beauty day with some blue sky. 6-8"s ona soft crust.

sun... took two skiers up to the west side of lichtenberg... two laps of the same run killclimbs, hft, and ed and i had done when they where here.. now up to two feet on the crust. sickpow turns..

mon.. back to lichtenberg. again with the duke!! and another local trevor... went to the tippy top. now up to 3+ feet on the crust... so well bonded! yet, we manage to find the one cross loaded gulley off the top that ski cutting set off a class 2 soft slab that ran some distance. along the way it triggered several more loaded spots to join the fun... wiping out some of our upper skin track. it could have carried and or buried.

while we where cutting with the assupmtion somethng could happen, I still feel a little dirty for starting such a big slide. suspect what happened was rising temps chasing us up the hill caused the pow we where climbing in to become a little more cohesive.

lessons... the danger was on east slopes... that includes the east side of our south facing gulley. cross loading would have been simular in the south facing gullies on heather ridge... aka diving board and the such.


but more important.. another reinforcemant of how bad of an idea it is to follow someone else skin track.! if anyone had been following us, it could have been a situation.

today, watch it rain, wait for new snowboards to show up.
tomorrow, do a penance of a day of lift served for my sins.
