After some consideration, we found there was no route around it without back tracking 2 miles, so we decided to start hiking the hills around us. Nothing but balls deep powder everywhere, and that was before 10"-15" that fell last night.

Lonnie at Boho was telling my friends about 15"-20" on Wednesday. That should put the whole area in that video at about chest deep pow.

With spring break approaching next week, I don't think I'll be able to make another trek out there till after, but with all this snow falling, it should all be accessible still in two weeks.
Damn I will hav eto watch this later...

Here's my first tree run on Saturday morning. Snow was absolutely great. A little long as I don't have an editor here. Nothing fancy, just pow hopping, log tapping, and barrel bonk. I was just flat out enjoying the snow.

Dammit Dave, next time I want to be recorded by you. Don't let me be so boring no matter how "no legs" I am either haha.

Man, I didn't any of my grabs on camera. I'm recording every run from now on because you never know what's going to occur. Especially in the lift line haha.

You type (youtube) paste everything after 'watch=' in the url here (/youtube)... Replace the "( )" with "[ ]"

I needed help with that too Chomps.

Use the youtube embed link in the tool bar on the post thingy and instead of copying the whole youtube URL, just post the ID portion, the part that looks something like this; GMeUZVi_XME

It will look like this;

{YOUTUBE}GMeUZVi_XME{/YOUTUBE} [ ] instead of { }

Here's my first attempt and beginners luck first landing of that kicker. Much higher, smoother and better jumps were had but this was the cherry popper;
