Thanks. I don't think I could find someone to video me constantly from the side. Next time I will just make a note to appreciate what I might be doing as I enter a turn.

Cool, I'll give you a shout next time I'm going. I don't think I'll get to Stevens this week, thinking crystal tomorrow and maybe again on saturday. I usually get to stevens at least once a week though. Was gonna go today but the shuttle didn't run.

Sounds like you have people who know some good stashes. Most of the runs you talk about are not on trail maps. I've had a lot of fun on powder days going off by the power lines and usually falling on the steeps near the bottom there Would like to try out some new spots though. Some of the out of bounds stuff doesn't look too intimidating but I'll probably heed the warnings of the experienced people advising against that for now.

They main run off seventh towards the top of hogs back is always a bump fest. Nancy Chute or solitude, lookers right as you go up the chair.

you mentioned in your post in the stevens thread about a good way from souther cross back to the front side, you should try big cheif bowl. Take the traverse just below the top of the Double Diamond chair into the bowl. The entrance is a little tight but it opens up. Steeper turns on the near side of the bowl, the further you traverse across the bowl the mellower the slope is.

the slope in tye bowl is mellow, the traverse into it is pretty obvious from the chair. When the moon is full you can take night runs through the bowl. Dont attempt to enter tye bowl from the top, there are a couple entrances but they are steep and boney.

Aren't those called the death chutes? So just traverse right under the top of the chair?

the traverse into tye bowl is 100ft above tye rock, you can see it as you ride up the chair. Ride the chair line, or gully to riders left of the tye chair. As you near tye rock the gully ends and there is a wide opening riders right of the chair that enters the bowl. Once in the bowl, there are a couple small drops on the near side, or traverse across for lower angle open pow. All the tracks should funnel you into the exit trail, keep your speed on the exit its a little flat as you come out onto daisy.

"death chutes" are above big chief bowl, only named line into tye bowl from the top i know is "nasty gash"

ohh yeah, we are talking about making turns on steep runs...

get low, be powerful, stay in control. Hop turns will get you out of sticky situations.
