A day of lift riding would also be in the works as I am not going to drive to Baker and not spend one day shredding lift accessed goodness and a local rider would be awesome as a guide...
Snowolf, my bad for not extending an invite. We have a wee bit of a house but, if the middle kid is on the boat (merchant mariner should be gone until feb/mar) there's a twin, a double and double blow-up mattress in the mostly dry partly finished basement, waxing and repair tools and some great micro brew pubs within a short crawl. Perhaps we could try to put something together for 3-4 guys...bring Shred, pickup NWBoarder, DZag, Ale...it would be fun.

Luckily the crew was filming hitting a knob (not me) so they just let me roll around.
Hey! Sounds like someone sucks at skinning even worse than I do! We should have a skin-off. Everyone else can gather round, have beers and be entertained!

Idk, the circus happens on these dates; perhaps the thing to do is drive up on a Thursday, do a resort tour on Friday to get an idea of conditions and even do some lift served slack; and do touring on sat/sun to avoid some of the wkend tourist. Anyway I got this weird night shift 7 on, 7 off wed to wed schedule, however it might change to m-f day shift...but should be able to get time off with some planning.

The banked race is February 8 - 9 - 10....feb could be good but often is dry cold cascade concrete til later feb.

Mt Baker Splitfest on March 22nd, 23rd and 24th, 2013 ....who knows might be darn fine with warmer poo.

That looks sick. When my ankle is fully healed (if) I am stoked on getting a splitty for the wife and I. Had planned on building one this year but after the injury, I am just stoked to be able to lap the groomers this year.


And Big Ups to the kiddo! Looks like she is having a good ol time with the papa.

Yesterday, Mon. went out solo to the same spot and dropped the same line but went just for practice skinning/transitioning...and did not fall over...however did skin backwards/in reverse a short distance on a steep part of the cattrack when comming back in. Daughter and her bf were going with til they got side tracked working with pro patrol doing avy training. Anyway, knew where, could see and despite looking great it was 3" of fluff on solid boiler plate crust.
