One of our runs was well over 3,000, closer to 3,500 even. If the snow in the valley was better it would have been 4,000. That was Diamond Peak. Two days before our departure a truly epic storm blew in, so I'm pretty sure the peak was open top to bottom after that. Too bad we weren't there anymore.

Still, it was an insane line.
Did you get to ride it in one long shot?

At ours, this depends on the type of run. If it's a steep straight run? In one go, one by one (you don't want to stop inbetween). If the run has "interruptions" like going from a face around a corner into a culloir? You gather at a safe spot inbetween and get new instructions for the next part.
If it's a run in mellow pitch where it's safe to ride together instead of one after the other, not too many schrunds, cliffs, crevasses on the way stiffer ? The guide points to a waaaay below point where to gather and you ride as long as your legs sustain :).
E.g. we're used to ride long runs of several thousand ft verts and rode in one go; others in the group did stop every now and then to catch breath; the guide did ride with them to make sure nobody gets lost.

Just saw this thread and went through it. Awesome photos and videos! Jealous as well. One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet I think and is probably the coolest thing of all is the fact that you get to experience all this with your husband, and he with you. You both share the same passion and do it together in far away places and at home. That's something special, which not many get to have.

I'm aware of that, OU812, and am very thankful. Actually, I had urged him to switch to a better group cos he was antsy to ride more challenging stuff, but he declined saying he rather wanna ride with me, share the yells n laughs on the mtn, and the stoke in the evening abt lines we both have ridden. It's his choices, and I'm glad he does think like that.

Never heard of being called that before?:embarrased1:
Must be a Euro thing:dry:

Yup that is pretty cool, I had a girlfriend almost 15 years ago that sucked literally & was a horrible snowboarder:embarrased1: too.

She became awesome, we went a tonne together & it got to the point she could stick to my ass like glue.
She didn't go off the shit I went off but she could go anywhere I went and any time I looked over my shoulder she was right there.

I loved it, coolest thing ever.

Hey I'm Canadian just like you and I never even heard of raclette until I met a Swiss guy back when I lived in Ontario and he invited us over for some. Was really good!

Having a significant other that can ride well enough to keep up has to be great. 2 weeks ago out on the hill I saw a chick who was carving down the runs, perfect pencil lines as she went down. I was in love. Even though she had a helmet and goggles on and I never saw her face, but nice body haha. See, its all about the fantasy.

Oh, I hope not!:surprise:
That's all what we had which was useful for vids. Batteries didn't last all through the days, and on some runs we simply forgot to start the cam :embarrased1::rolleyes:

Thanks @Rogue.
I'm beginning to get used to the tool and it's actually fun to do edits meanwhile. Now I need to collect new song ideas for next year through the summer - a fun thing as well; to listen through playlist and suddenly a track pops out where one thinks, hey, that one could fit.

Haha I love that lol

Last week I seen 2 chics riding together, both had on little tank tops.
Both skinny & stacked. (haha love that combo haha)

Both had face masks covering their faces & helmets.
I too think I fell in love, haha.
Man I want me a hot little snowboard chic SOOOO bad, haha.

I could walk by both of em on the street & have no idea of who they were.

Neni, you said you have the Drift cam? The Stealth or Ghost model and how do you like it?
The Ghost. I netver had any other cam so I can't say if it's better or worse than others. I love their remote control which allows to control it without taking the gloves off or even touching the cam. It's easy to handle, small and low profile; those were the criteria I had. A teletubby go pro was a no go.

Beginning to plan for next season... going back to AK in '17.
If anyone of you guys who was interested in such a trip is thinking of making it happen next season... send a PM. Would be sweet to meet a SBF fellow over there :)
