Suggestion - Share your last best shred

Since there seems to be so much drama let's counter act that with your last best shred.

That's it- last best shred- nothing else - no saying I could have done it better, you're dumb, that doesn't look like shit, etc.... maybe so but let's just keep it positive and enjoy the chance we have to share with others.

Here is mine, might not be the evidence of the last best shred but the moments just before were definitely the last best shred I've had on the mountain.

It was a nice day, just shy of 50*, soft corn in spots and sugar snow in others. I hit a steep but wide open run and found myself on a nice patch of corn. All of a sudden I was going at such an awesome clip I couldn't stop my self I was having so much fun.

I hit a nice tree patch then out in the open then dead ahead another set of tress to rip through. YA! I thought......

All of a sudden I found myself looking over what I thought would be a nice little dip to ollie over at speed.

Nope- had to slam on the breaks! Damn near took a swim. The picture is the creek I almost swam in. It's probably a 7-9 foot drop with at least a 5 ft width. You can see my tracks where I climbed up.....

Still the best run I've had in a while!

Dropping a few cliffs in Sugarloaf sidecountry during their snowiest December in 17 years just a few weeks ago... I showed up at the mountain and there was grass everywhere... then 4 inches that night... then 3 feet the next week and 2 feet the week after that... I was joking about going in the trees before the New Year but it happened on the terrain that needed the most snow to be ridable. Absolutely epic!

Jealous! We haven't had an epic powder day for a while.


Hell if so I might have either 1) not made it out of the drink, 2) not had to worry about it!

The last best shred that I actually have photgraphic evidence of was a total bluebird day at Alpental a few weeks back. Me and my buddy that I never get to ride with actually got a day out together. There was a fresh dusting to make things a little nicer, and the sun made it feel completely like a spring day. Here's the pics.

It's definitely a pretty gnarly pitch. Alpental is well known for it's steeps.

Last week.

We had a big powder week. We got hit with 40-50" in 3 days. First day was a perfect bluebird with 15" overnight. Perfect lighting to drop any cliff, blast through any chute, spot any landing.

Not the most fun to look at but eh - Couple stills from my first run.
