The Last 3 Final Days of the Year.
 
After 3 attempts, Im officially done with riding for the year. I bagged my 100th day on memorial day and had a good enough ride down that I was OK with calling it a season.

But as the snow got patchier, more roads got opener and I was tempted by the easy access.

I was lured out of retirement once more this last weekend for one last ski trip to the stansbury mountains. This route could be done as a day trip but how much fun can you really have with a light pack??

After about 12 hours of bushwacking and bivouacing, we were at the top and ready to make our final turns of the year.

After a few thousand sun cups and a couple emergency self arrests followed by some silky turns, make my way back to the car and put my board into storage.

Great pics. It's a good feeling when you had a great year and know your done for the season.

Like the Chaco approach sandals.

Love the combination of splitboard and sandals in the same pic :)

Your end of season reports made me rethink my definition of "season" (there's snow all year round only some miles away...) and join a local mountaineering club which does touring long after my old definition of season ends - I've no talent if it comes to reading maps and I'm lousy in orientation so I'd never go on my own.
So yes, thanks for sharing - it is an inspiration :thumbsup:
