Thats me in there. 1 Week ago in Nagano. We had some of the lightest powder I have seen thanks to the cold. I found a new run (not this photo) with untouched waist deep powder and did the best powder turns of my life.

No doubt the best ever so far.

The board I was riding was a *******.

Just messin with ya.

Great idea for a thread! Last shred? 1/29/2012

holy shit....sigh. Priorities in life have shifted


Mammoth. Lapping chair five with forum member who doesn't post much alex12

Looks warm but it wasn't! It was int he upper 20s! brr....sun was out and there was a few inches of fresh pow. Too cold for me to take the gloves off, this is all I gots.




Oh, and they had on mountain photogs taking pics...I screen capped this one off their website. They want $60 for a photo? lolwut? It was on the groomer back near the base lift. Those are the first ever pics Ive ever seen of me snowboarding. Im very, VERY camera shy. (gnargoyle or tunrda wookie? you pick!) anyway... my board is really rockered between the bindings isn't it. Lol.



so anyone who rides at mammoth and you see ^^^ come say HIIIII!!

if a cat fucked a shark, the babies would be called women. snowklinger

they were surprisingly soft and fluffy. We hung in the trees you can't see from the lift, where there was some fresh to be found!

Don't have any photo evidence of it, but I got two different conditions in two consecutive days at the same mtn. Was riding Stowe about 2 weeks ago and we got hit with about 6-7" surprise inches. I got up there for first chair at 7:30 and just floated in huge S turns all the way down before work at 9. I mean even straight lining down Liftline and some of the famed double diamonds we have. Just effortless. Probably did 7-6 runs and had to stop because my back leg was on fire and I had to instruct all day!

Then, next day, 45 degree and sunny. No jacket, helmet vents open, soft cushy snow. Almost spring-like conditions. Took out my Rome (soft & short) and went down some of the same trails as the day before and got smooth slushy bump turns. Such a fun 2 days!

Nice! There's nothing better than long fresh runs that leave ya feeling like your on surf board.

We are supposed to get about 6" tonight and Friday's forecast is blue skies! I was gonna go today but wanted to hit a little pow and some sun!

Damn Huckfin.... just .... Damn!

Seemed like you were riding for days in those vids, and the face shots were disgusting. I thought the first vid had tons of face shots, then I watched the second one.

Whats the purpose of that snorkel in your mouth? Is it just for the face shots or what? It seems to short to really help if you go in head first...... that's deep stuff your in.
