A good Day
 
Sunday 4/13/14

first and hour+ of skating at WF park, no one but me and a few scooterers

then late afternoon around 3 i went up to Big Mtn. high for the day was in the low 40's so i figured i'd let it soften up in the sunny afternoon, and i figured right

my run, North Bowl, sun had hit it all afternoon, so it was superfun powdery corny slushy softness, awesome fast and carvable.

Wow, nice! Overlap in seasons is always fun.

That's quite a skate park and the snow...still so much snow! Beautiful views.

Haha, loved the dog pics. Esp his thoughts on Canadia :laugh:

yeh we still have something like 170" on top, i think it's good to go for a month or more still

i was documenting Milo's decreasing enthusiasm in general LMAO. he made it to the top at least, i was stoked for that. he has made me stop 3/4 of the way up several times before. i think my route up this time was better for him: it went mellow, steep, mellow, steep, so he got good breaks

Nice! We were at Fernie all weekend, but it was just below freezing, and only parts of the lower mountain were slushy. Otherwise it was frozen chunk crete!

CassMT 04-14-2014 01:11 PM

if it hadn't softened up for me like it did so well it would have been the ultimate deathcookie frozen chop. instead all these insane nasty chunks were there, but they would just shatter into corn

also...i get to my truck and up pulls a USFS pickup, K-9 unit. someone i passed had called into them that i had milo w no leash, and it turns out they had been watching my whole summiting and run down thru a spotting scope from the parking! talked my way out of a $150 ticket, which took about 20 long minutes.

This answers Slyder's question about what trolls do when they're not on the internet. So lame.

Reading your post, and the fact that your dog stopped you on sevetal ascents? I feel safe in presuming your animal is well enough behaved to be under your control even off a leash and not likely to be bolting after and/or harassing wildlife or whatever.

I understand the need for the rule as I have seen dipshits letting their animals run wild in the bush. But diming you to NFS cops? Yeah, sounds like a troll's day off the interwebz move to me.

I save my douchebag narc moves for ppl who I witness actually causing a problem. ...I've been reported as a poacher before by ppl who saw me carrying my tripod n camera rig in the bush. Guess they thought it was a big gun over my shoulder or sum shit. Had park rangers waiting for me at the trailhead. Yhey were having poaching problems at the time too so,..?

I have mixed feelings on the issue only because I've seen so many clueless & irresponsible people everywhere, even in wilderness. :dunno:

At least you had fun and talked yourself out of the ticket! :thumbsup:

You had to deal with scooterers that right there ruins the day.

CassMT 04-14-2014 04:02 PM

can't let those scooter bother you a'tall, even if you kick em out of the park more replacements just show up

looks like doge is a Shino Ibu, which is the most common guess i get from ppl, then i tell em he's just a pughiuha+ something, anyway

Good to know that the USFS guys cant unlock gates to roads that have been free of snow for a month but they have to time to perv on you with binocs for hours. Probably took pics of your pecker while you were peeing.
