Snowklinger, we were able to get 6 runs a day plus a heli drop each day. The hiking was not bad except when post holing..... We also hike at altitude a lot though....

Here is a video made of multiple runs over two days. It was super hard to hold a camera still so the fotage is minimal that is actually viewable without getting sick watching it. hard to get a concept of the steepness in video too.... but for a majority of the decent you can just put your knee forward a bit and touch the snow when on your toe side.... cool place to ride, just wish I could afford a heli to take us everywhere...... The majority of the video is of My son and his teamate riding, he just turned 13 and she is 14......

The humanity! As long as they are on an AT setup and not tele'ing....

Evidently there have been some format changes over the weekend or something. We are trying to figure out how to handle it. Bear with us.
Looks like a good trip. Buffalo Pass was money over the weekend. Got just a few photos. The biggest problem is for me is that the splitboard crew has been MIA this season, so I keep getting skier pics.

dunno why they are showing up as links.... usually the photos just pop up on the screne.

Here is a couple of photos from screne shots out of some video.... taking a couple of 13 year olds was pretty cool. all the old crusty skiers on day one kinda thought it was crazy, by the second day they were getting respect....

Got video today ofthe heli drops. Fun but there is some sketchy coverage in places. There was also waist deep turns in other places.... I'll get video and pics up during the week. More riding tomorrow.

wife is finally off, heading out. thanks again for the info. The pass looks clear for now so hopefully I will make it by midnight and get 6-7 hours of sleep. I packed our drift so we will shoot a run or two. I always carry my camera, I just hope it doesnt freeze up with lows in te -20 range and highs in the singles.

As long as it is open, I'd go for it. The gnarly canyon is somewhat protected from blowing snow so visibility is not usually it's problem. After you get out of it, there are spots that get pretty nasty. Like the top of Rabbit Ears if you ever travel that way during a storm. It's still pretty reasonable.
Looks like a lot of fresh down that way. Should be an awesome weekend. Try to pull out the camera, that area photographs well. Plus if you don't have pics, it didn't happen as far as we are concerned.
