...Sweet! Will be the first time I can shred with a fellow female snowboarder. Really looking forward to the trip!
:blink: :question:
All these years None of your crew had gf's or wives that boarded?? :blink:
It's hard to imagine that I've ridden with more women snowboarders than you have! :eek:

(...of course, if I make this meet, you & Rogue would be the first women I've ridden with whose skills Far surpass my own meager abilities!) >:)

Sorry, we had rainy powder yesterday. It was great until our outerwear didnt hold off the water any more. Lol.....

Chomps has fallen ill and hopefully we can get him back out tomorrow.
Oh dear. What on earth did you guys do to poor Chomps?!
Bit of a long story but, the TLDR version is,...

I came down with some sort of stomach bug. Really jacked me up for a couple days.

Altho hearing that I missed out on a thorough, wind driven soaking on Thursday. Took a tiny bit of the sting out of missing 2 days of my trip sick in bed. :sad:

(...between feeling ill & the Hotels shitty wifi! I apologize for my absence of contributing posts to this thread. :embarrased1:


Heres a couple of pictures from today.

It started out about as crusty as it can be with very rough groomers. It ended up quite nice with softening trails and snow falling.

Neni brought pounds of cheese and chocolate for our tailgate lunch party.

Left to right in the first picture....

Kk2242 doing a great job turning down the intermediate slopes. Great job for a first year rider.

Awesome group of people!
Kind, generous, funny as all hell! I've had about as much fun at the tailgates & dinners as I have on the slopes!

(....and Kk2242 was KILLIN' it for a 1st season rider with 18-20 days!!! ):eek:

She handled icy, steep shit that woulda had me sideslippin' my ass off my first season!!! :blink:

Well done!!! Big time Congrats Gurl!!! ;) :grin: )

Holy sh#t, @chomps1211, how wide is that stance??
...a tad over 24" iir! Why? :grin:


Crystal was fun,.. even if it was a little damp. Groomers were fast at the top of one of the 3 lifts running. Got a little sticky @ the bottom as the day warmed, but all in all, a fun day of falling on my butt with @wrathfuldeity @neni and SO! >:)

(...it is just an absolute pleasure watching those two carve shit up! :D. Such Amazing ability!)

First Day /w Wrath @ Baker!

Ok,.. It was damp yesterday @ Crystal! All My stuff was pretty wet! But today @ Mt.Baker,…?? SOAKED TO THE BONE! :laugh:
And we were actually getting snow at the top unlike the rain at Crystal! I've never finished a day of riding as wet as I was today!

……but FUN-N-N-N-N! :grin:

It was still pretty soft & Deep at the top of lift 7 or was it 5? (Can't remember which) This lift here,….


… of course @neni? Wrath says it wasn't actually Pizza! :laugh:

Whole different type of riding today than what I've been doing the last few days @ Bachelor & Crystal! It was deep enough that I had to stay "back foot" all day. It took me a bit to get used to riding like I would for POW on this wetter, firmer kind of deep soft snow & that rear quad of mine didn't last long!

I had a blast tho!! Wrathful took me down something the locals call "Blood Alley!" I managed to get down without bloodying myself anyway! (….Heart was POUNDING @ the bottom & not from exertion either!!!) :rofl3:

Looking forward to tomorrow & the prospect of more wet fresh to ride! Here are a few more shots I got of some of the amazing (and intimidating as hell,…) terrain here!









Riding here today with @wrathfuldiety was awesome! I can't thank him & his family enough for welcoming me into their home!
(…and No!! I'm not writing this trapped inside the creepy basement!!) LOL ;)

Well Chomps is still with us...haven't managed to finish him off yet...
Not,.. for lack of trying however!! :laugh:

Last night I went to bed looking forward to another day of riding "wet" fresh,… Instead, I woke up this morning to discover that the Gods had at last smiled down on me!

The temperature had cooled and overnight Baker had gotten anywhere between 5"-9" of light LOVELY pow by morning!!! :jumping1: :jumping1:

Wrathful has been doing his best to push me. (….Into an early grave it seemed at times!) And today was no different! He guided me to a number of really awesome & amazing pow turns on,.. what for me was some STEEP Freakin' terrain! I did OK! (…sort of!) I did wind up having one good POW slam where I definitely got my bell rung!

I Don't know if I flipped, endo'd, or did a single tomahawk! I only know that the lady on the lift above me, sounded VERY concerned as she repeatedly shouted "Are You All Right?" :rofl3: I think I managed to find "the Bottom" of the days fresh with my head on that one!

Then,.. after lunch Wrath had a little surprise for me!


The Canyon,….!!! :blink: :surprise:






(To be continued….)

The Canyon continued,….

My legs were toast before I started down this. So I'm not making any claims to have actually "ridden" this chute,... I'm so physically spent at this point, I'm just Barely managing to sideslip my way down & around the bumps,… My only claim here is that "I survived it!!" :laugh:


Resting about a 3rd of the way down.





…at the bottom finally! Deadman Sitting!!! Absolutely NOTHING left!!




So now,.. if you don't mind? I'm going to collapse into bed! LoL! More to come tomorrow!!! :laugh:



:blink:

Chomps,

Glad you are having such a great time out there.

Questions:

A. How did you get an Instagator?...
For now? Lets just say,.. "I know a Guy!" ;) :laugh:

...B. Why is there a foam backpacking sleeping pad in the snow behind you ???

:confused:

Inquiring minds wanna know...
Cuz I collapsed at the ski skool when I finally made it back to the lodge? :shrug: I dunno,… They were there when I landed! :rofl2: ;)



-edit-
BTW,… almost got to see Mt. Baker today! :grin:

OMG, WOW! Uhm... I'm at Baker this weekend. Friday - Sunday. Last clinic of the season, and um... are you still around?
Well,.. I managed to Make a last minute SBF hook-up & a new friend today on my last day at Baker!! @Varza & her husband. (...He's the "skier" we appear to be ostracizing!) >:)


We met up this morning at The lodge & made plans to meet for lunch at the Raven and take a few laps after!! Super nice, Awesome couple! (...despite the "mixed" marriage!) :laugh: ;)

Had a blast riding with her, Wrathful leading the way!! The weather stayed cold overnight,.. So the groomers were soft, fast & smooth for the most part,.. Visibility was GREAT!!! And to top it all off after the POW day yesterday,.. The clouds lifted & I finally got to see Mt. Baker in all it's glory!!! :jumping1:





A perfect ending to an AWESOME trip!!


(…btw, Varza did much better handling herself in the stashes of leftover fresh than I did!) ;) :thumbsup:

Heh. As long as it's not a portable AED in the close proximity with you, you're good.

Awesome pictures. Looks like the trip was a great fun.
Well,... At several points that day I was fairly certain this was going to be the sight I woke up to.... :blink:

:laugh: :laugh: >:)

....the very least of the hazards @wrathfuldiety exposed me to at Baker! :eek: ;) :laugh:
That boulder appeared in the "going up"
Lane to Baker Saturday morning.

Ps: @Varza,... that's exactly how to do a "mention!" Just place an @ symbol in front of the username of the member you wish to mention! :D
