Almost diverted to ss this morning, but I still have no chains.

High at 10:40am or so. The snow was nice! I went up to the right side of the mountain after a good amount of time getting used to things again in the green trails. It was soooo nice up there! Better snow, super hazy, it was awesome! I was unfamiliar with the trails up there but I think I avoided the black diamond trails Not ready for that. I'll put up some pictures I took on my phone. I'm really tired! Today was my first time riding for the season and the first time on my own setup. The response on my board was so much better than the Burton LTR's I rented at the resort I need to put on the Rome stomp pad that came with my bindings. I didn't expect my topsheet to be soo slick in the snow. I've seen people without them so thought it would be fine but it was way too slick, it was very hard to skate. I got more used to it as the day went on but still not easy.
I got up to mt high around 745. My friend saw the chain sign but we went up anyway. Nobody was checking, but it was slick as hell. We had a brief fish tail moment, and then it was 25mph from there on out. It must have melted by the time you got there.

I was nervous because my tires are worn and I don't have the money to replace all 4. I drove slow on the curvy turns but didn't have any problems. Don't think I saw any ice where all of the 'icy' signs were

Should have kicked up the brightness so I could see what I was shooting but didn't want to risk draining my battery an hour away from home:

Haha which person? This was taken with my new-ish phone so I didn't mess with any picture sizing settings. The original isn't all that much bigger.

hahaha dude its totally me. I zoomed in on it. I can see my green gloves, acid green forces, and gray DC pants. thats fucking funny.

BTW, i dont think you can change photo size on the iphone. It should be full size, but if you text it to yourself or something it resizes it to small like that. The full size image should be in your phone.

EDIT: Just realized you said phone, and not iphone.

Hahah! Nice find, detective I have an android phone, it's tough to tell with the original version.
What are the odds! I took that picture when I just got to the base. I was looking for Zombaco in a black helmet(should have been a white one, whoops!) and a beard. Did ya see a short guy falling a lot in a black Analog jacket and grey pants?

edit: Oh! Nevermind, the actual version is pretty damn huge. I'll upload it on a file sharing site.
