Too bad I don't bring my camera with me when I board because the were some beautiful spots... I love a-basin coming across the top...Under the Matterhorn Etc.

But my favorite view though a little bit of a cheat because I was on foot and not on a board but I did see more then a few split boarders passing me by so I will count it- was probably Mt Rainer

For some reason it looks like the end of the Earth, looks like you are super high up! Stupendous view though.

Best views are bluebird days at Crystal Mountain, but all time was the last Friday of night boarding at Stevens Pass at about 6pm when the sun was going down and the sky turned bright red and made the snow glow reddish pink. There were very few people on the mountain so I got to do as many runs as I wanted in this otherworldly reddish pink glow.

I took pictures but they don't really come close to capturing the color of it.

I got jealous just reading your description, sounds amazing. I know what you mean, sometimes I whip my phone out to take a photo before realising there's no point because it would never capture the beauty of what I'm looking at. A good sunset while riding is truly incredible.

Alaska... hard to beat IMHO

One of my favorite views there is watching down the entry of this run...

or, after tackling a sketchy part, to turn and see the others approaching...

Or simply being on top of home range

Everything's so white, some ripper photos! Was this an actual resort with lifts sorry? Or did you climb up and ride down?

The Alaska pics were chopper accessed on a Heliboarding trip. The ones at home were climbed

Not my photo, this is TRice at Baldface I think, but this is exactly what the colors looked like.

That is some insanely good weather, where was this at? Dumping in Feb like that sounds glorious, especially if the lift lines we're empty! The only thing I've seen that is similar to that would be in Japan, they had some insane dumps on back to back days. Just thinking about this makes me itchy for COVID to be under control and be back out on the slopes.
