I could feel the cold in the air this morning. The first time in a couple of months. There was snow on the high peaks this weekend. So here is a little more mid season stoke from Grizzly Gulch to keep this thread going.

The new Powder Whores trailer is up. I've been attending their movie premiers for the last three years as it is also a fund raiser for the Friends of Berthoud Pass. Considering that most of their footage is done by human powered effort their movies are impressive. Two years ago Bob Athey the Wizard of the Wasatch got a segment riding his splitboard even though PW films are Tele films. It seems this year a snowboarder gets a fair amount of film time. Good for these guys. I talked with them last year about having other disciplines in their films and they said that they have a few snowboarders (splitters actually) on their film crew. So they were considering adding some sideways footy for their next film. Good for these guys. Their films will always be rooted in Tele but I am glad to see them expand. Also, their films are very good, worth checking out if they come to your town. Fun guys to drink with for sure.

Well I think I took the last photo posted. Forrest otherwise known as Hikeforturns on many message boards took a lot of those. Tom Armento on other earlier photos. I also took a lot of them too. I just didn't credit each individual photo. Regardless, if you want to know who took a specific photo, I can credit them. In either case I shared in each of those adventures. Thanks for the appreciation of course!

I was thumbing through another site and this classic of Jonaven Moore had popped back up.

That might be the sickest line I have ever seen in a photo.

**hmm seems bcrider changed his format so this pic is no longer available, I'll repost it if I can find it somewhere else.**

He's laying turns on it. Freakin' sick. Here is what Jonaven himself had to say about it.
Quote:
This photo is from a place called Parkers Ridge, on the icefields parkway, in Banff Natl. park. The shoulder of Mt. Athabasca to be exact. Anyway I first snowshoed around at parkers probably 8 years ago now, and my friend Kyle Wolochatiuk rode a line very close to this through a very large and exposed chute that I very much looked up to at the time. We saw the potential of this rock face at the time, but I guess just were'nt really at that level back then. This last spring I went back there with my girlfriend, and photographer friend Dan Hudson. We did some laps the first day close to this rock face, and I rode around the bottom of it to make sure that the tranny was nice were it met back up with the snow. I think we were doing easily twice the lines in a day on split gear than what I remember doing as a kid on showshoes. I brought a custom splitboard that Rome Snowboards had helped me out with. The light hit this thing early in the morning, so Nicola and I skinned up the ridge, and where within the final ascent by about 9:30am. Nicola rode an easier(but still plenty steep) line from this intermediate saddle, and I post holed the rest of the ridge solo. Dan had the easy job of sleeping in, and hiking to the bottom to shoot photos(and help guide me in with a radio). From the top there is a chute that is fall line, and riders left of the rock face, that I had as a back up way down if I needed. I wanted to just get to the top and see what it looked like from there...
Its funny because one of the posts on this site says it reminded him of a kayaking shot. Well, truth is having become an avid paddler in the last few years, I sort of have a different outlook at what' possible. The high end in that sport in my eyes is a whole nother level really. But I guess its all just what your used too.
Anyway, it was good fun, and the tranny at the bottom was perfect. It felt like it dropping into a really bit vert ramp on a skateboard. Pretty smooth really. Well, I want to get some video footage so I'd like to go back this year. There's a pretty small window there for avy conditions and the like on that face though (big convex face in the entry) so everything'll have to line up just right. Keep y'all posted!
p.s.- there is surely no better way to hang out in the backcountry than on a splitboard. I am so sold.
