that's brave leaving your board base down like that /\ (seen in pic#2)
Hahaha! That's pretty funny. Had a friend leave his board base down like that on a chute we were teeing up on Berthoud Pass. A gust of wind came through and blew it into the chute. It went down 1k ft to the exit gully at the bottom. Great powder in there too. The rest of the day we got to give him crap how his board got more turns than he did...
Maybe Jeri will see this. Jeri and I were touring one day and I was slacking ass on the uphill. He already had one of his skins off and I had just gotten to the top and was unstraped. He set one of his halfs down on the base and I saw it starting to slide down. It started to take off and I did some ninja leaping after it. I don't think we ever would have found it had it gotten away especially since it was over 2K vert.
almost lost my board on Mt. Rainier. Had it sitting bindings down with the high backs dug into the snow when a 70 mph gust flipped it and sent it sliding. Luckily, the wind also knocked me over which gave me a head start on the diving scramble to prevent my board from going for a fun ride.
