I'll have my standard pass to Snoqualmie. And then make my standard trips all around WA. Crystal, Baker, White, Stevens. Probably some Hood in there. If I'm damn lucky, I can make way to either UT, or CO for a short stay and ride, since I have family in both places now.

Going to have stevens passes again for the family this year. Will be renting a cabin in glacier for the banked slolam. Buying a travel trailer so we can spend weekends up at the ski areas all winter! Prolly goin to take 1 or 2 trips to Colorado to visit my girls and get them up to learn how to ride. Hopefully they will board this year instead skiing but either way I am excited that they are finally ready to give it a try

Stevens week day pass. Same with trying to hike cowboy more. I tend to spend all my time on big chief.

Already stoked for some oyster tours killclimbz! Was just talking about that last night if your ears where ringing. Only two hundred more feet.
It's nason, but yeah, that was an awesome day. That photo of pete is still one of my favorites from lqst year.

Splitboarding wise , i'd like to do some more base camp style over nighters. Posssibly in the icicle, north cascades, and glacier peak wildy.

Ps... 4 months is a pretty pesimistic guess. I was thinking more like three until the snow starts falling on the perrenial snow fields.

More Baker this year. Chrystal kicked my ass last year (Not good enough yet) on my annual trip. Went in Jan this last year, but wondering if I should try for first part of Dec. Seemed last year that time some awesome snow was falling.

for those with pass's at stevens, this year you get three free days at other "Powder Alliance" areas. Just letting people know about Bridger Bowl 16 miles from Bozeman. It is a bad ass ski area with real deal steep terrain off the ridge. Mid february on is the best time for storms. I'd be happy to show you around. Bring you beacon its required for inbounds hikes and the slushmans lift.

the rest of the ridge, all inbounds


Out of bounds tours are high quality

I was talking with Steve about that. Definitely want to do an overnighter this time around. He wants to make it out this year.

Still kicking myself for not getting out with you guys that day. In bounds was pretty good at Stevens that day though, so at least I got the goods.

I'll have to get out with you sometime this season Ale! Especially when Gary makes his way out this way.

Not in your guys area, but I want to get in on the stoke too.

I will mostly be riding in Nagano but I will make a trip up to Hokkaido and due to work I might spend 3 weeks in the Swiss alps.

Still got 5 months to wait.

Plenty of time to get my quiver updated.
