Default Wrath's 1st split adventure

Sat. met up with the daughter and her crew, we did a few resort mid-chair laps on pan, chute and snaggle tooth, lunch and then out towards table via the blueberry gate. Generally cloudy and fog with few quick sun breaks and 24 degrees.

It sure beats walking, until you stand on your other ski!

Crossed my tips, fell over sideways, gliding down & falling over tips, turtled with the pack on (x2) and trying to roll over in the bottomless, a kick turn with a 2' step up, got tangled up---2 sticks, 2 poles & ass in the middle...wtf. And each time I could not get back up with out getting out of my bindings, sinking waist deep crawling back on top and then strapping in to get going again. Luckily the crew was filming hitting a knob (not me) so they just let me roll around.

it all comes with time, soon you will feel as comfortable on the skins as you on the board. A couple days scooting around on tele gear makes skining feel more natural. i even picked up a tele setup for touring in really flat areas where there is nothing much to ride down.

walove is dead on. You just gotta spend time on your setup. There is some steep skinning to get up on the ridge just below Table if you are starting from the parking lot. Just take your time. Go down to Stevens and let Ale drag your ass around that pass. Lots of everything there. Great training ground and tons of fun terrain.

Hey Wrath, I had my first tour on Thursday last week with Snowolf and ShredLife up at Mt. Rainier. It was AWESOME! I didn't find the kick turns to be to crazy, and luckily, we didn't have to do any that were too big, or else I might of. LoL! I did manage to whack myself in the face with the pointy end of the ski pole while trying to mess with an elevator. Thought, "Well, that sucked, but not to bad", then an hour or so later Shred asks me if my nose is bleeding? I was all like, WTF? No..... Oh yeah, I whacked myself with a pole! Baker looks fantastic right now. Way to get at it Wrath!
