Went out to Baker today and had a ton of fun despite being super rusty and managing to get turned around several times. A little icy in the morning but it was snowing all day. Ended up accidentally getting stuck in a little patch of ungroomed snow below a trail map sign and had a hell of a time getting out sinking past my knees for about a 10' stretch or so (I wasn't the only one to get stuck at least). Essentially no lift lines all day too.

I'll have to go back later in the season when I'm in better shape and not as rusty.

thats when you swim or paddle out...just lay down on your board like paddling a surf board ... but its really a matter of choosing your lines wisely, having enough slope and enough speed and don't biff or its swimming time.

I was trying to get a look at the trail sign cause I was super confused and didn't realize what I was getting myself into until it was too late. Oops.

So nobody else besides me wants to brag about how good it's been? I'm disappointed I wanna see some pow porn. @neni here's a honey hole that always collects

Aaaaa, that's awesome! Thanks for this, made me leave the office with a wide grin (and a well meant swear on the lips)
Hope it'll be equally good in March! Over here, winter hasn't startet yet . No snow in sight.


I really thought quicksand was going to be a much bigger issue in my life when I was little
