ugh, that is a fairly frightening statement. How about staying alive and creating many more memories rather than risking your life. Did you check the avalanche reports? Did you have beacon, probe and shovel, as it said right on the sign?

I have never ridden in the backcountry and I would not do so unless I was first properly equipped and second, with an experienced rider or guide. No memory is worth your life.

glad you had some fun and glad I could point you to some good runs at the bird .. it is a magical place for sure. Sometimes I forget how awesome it is especially in this crappy snow year. I keep thinking screw the bird this year but only because im used to 500 inches plus a season and this year has been lacking. The enthusiasm of both you and david got me itching to take some laps there again haha. Too bad we couldnt hook up but was busy at brighton with the 32 crap goin on ... maybe next year!


o and it sucks to see that theyve taken down the big skull and crossbones sign on the canyons back country gate .. it said "you are leaving the ski area boundary YOU CAN DIE" lol epic

Mr. Polonia, saw you mentioned you flew United. Did they charge you $175 each way to check your snowboard as it says on their site? I was looking at a flight for a possible late season trip and they had a great rate on the flight until i checked into their baggage fees. I saw that fee and was like WTF!!! I can ship it cheaper there and back for under a $100 using USPS or Fed-Ex.

what?? no way. u prob misread something.

the cost of one bag per person one way was $20. maybe it was some fee that u have to pay if u dont obey the limits

That back bowl is really the only bowl riding that the Canyons has to offer.....and its not really Canyons terrain....its outta bounds. Though they do gun it, know and respect the risks...I ducked the ropes, too...but there wasn't a break to be had that day! I don't think there was much of a risk with Palonia's day, either.

Can I say I told you so? Glad you had a blast. The pics look great!
