I actually have the whole thing on video...u see the exact same footage that i freeze framed, and like a min later u see my friend dig up my camera and hand it over to the guide, and then he puts it on his helmet and rides down with it, and then u see me walking around the Cat all pissed off and depressed

On a tangent, what pants are those were you wearing?
i love it too lol i would had more but by the 2nd run, i put my gopro back in my jacket cuz it kept falling off my head. I was using the stupid headlamp strap because the helmet that i have has vent holes all along the middle of it so theres no way i could use that adhesive mount

Mr. Polonia yea thats a lot of money for 3 pics....i guess they know that people would like some sort of a souvenir from their trip so they jack up the prices.

We did about 7 or 8 runs that trip. It wouldve been more, but the guides had to help dig out people...myself included

Going straight down was easy but intiating any turns was like learning how to snowboard again. Totally different mechanics as opposed to riding on hardpack or groomers.

there was a photographer that set himself up on each trail and took pictures of us as we were coming down and made us look good lol At the end of the day u could purchase a cd with the pictures from the trip for a whopping $75

And so here are the pics of me in action when I WASNT digging myself up



CONTD....
$75 for pictures is well worth it...On my solo trip to telluride I paid a $140 for 3 pictures...that was a rip off they weren't that great and I only got the hard copies. Your pictures look great.

How many runs did you get to do on the cat tour?

Mr. Polonia I have no regrets spending a lot of money on this trip. It gave me a sense of understanding that riding deep pow isnt as easy as it seems. I remember watchin T. Rice in thats it, thats all how he was doing pillow lines in deep snow, and i told myself yea thats easy. I totally take all that back.

It was a fun new experience but i dont recommend it to new riders. I had a hard time doing some turns and pretty much had to dig myself out at least twice per each run. At one point i was really not enjoying myself because i just couldnt grasp the mechanics of it in such short amount of time. But now when i look back on it, it was totally worth the $$. I guess the next time that ill experience somewhat deep conditions, it will be at this yrs East coast meet
