zackmorris Abay was rad Tuesday. Always hit up East Wall when it's open.

The snow on the pass was great as well.


My season has been soooo fucking good even with injuries.



Cheers guys

I was factoring in 4.5 minutes for a smoke break......

Duck out the ropes or hike out the top and drop down on the right side. Not much of a run out and you get in some great terrain. Plus the cornice drop at the top is super fun on a powder day.

This is very true. Especially first tracks, holy fuck is that miserable to skate/hike through when you finally bog down. On a heavy pow day i'll grab the biggest branch i can to use as a pole. If you just hike a little through the gate and take a diagonal left line down through those north trees you can come out pretty far on that cat track and keep it going to the chair.
