I hope you guys get some sliding goods soon! DMT says it's coming for nor cal. We'll see. Next one looks wet. Good base snow for high alpine...

Alright I promised more pics and then got distracted by climbing.. that's acceptable tho since this is a climbing website :)

When Rick and I got down we met up with Kyle and went to Garbonzo Chair

Kyle and Rick at the top of Seppos




Hoar frost with the Spearhead range in the background




I'm loving these panos!




As we were dropping in we saw our buddy Nigel and he decided to join us. We had a sick tree run, but things were still pretty boney. When we got back to the top again, Rick took off and we decided to go re-hydrate and re-energize for another hike to the peak.


After some liquids and sugar fixes we headed up the powder road.






Nigel shreds some guitar, Harmony style





Looking back at the top of Harmony




A simply amazing place, and time to be










Come on Mike! Stop taking photos we're gonna miss the light!






Couldn't resist this one..






Or this one..






Nigel discussing our route plan with the cat operators so we don't get killed by Winch cats..





Nigel shredding the Alpenglow





The light was amazing these photos don't do it justice.





Nigel drops into juicy West Bowl



A simply amazing early season day. Hike days are the best. Rat Race days suck. Looks pretty wet for the next week... hope things chill out a bit!! :)

Thought I would post this little vid I put together last year from a sick sled shred day.




You can read about that day and the avalanche I was in here:

Hey Mike, you've been getting after it man. There were at least two chutes you showed that have me really jonesing for steep terrain.

Gotta love that going over the top of the moon feeling. You know it goes, but you can't see what's coming. Commitment, that's what skiing steep lines is all about.

Thanks for sharing your early season turns.

Edit; Skiing or riding, makes no difference to me. Fun is fun.

Brandon! Sick dude! I feel the same way! It's all just Slidin' man!!!

Tell you the truth that first line I showed, I scoped from the other side of the valley and I was pretty damn sure it went but when you're dropping in over that blind roll like you said it's definitely the ultimate feeling of commitment!!!

Came across a Moose after this shot on a cross country trail. Took a few minutes to get the courage to ride past it.

My buddies sled and I don't think it will fit in my carry-on. Plus I'm sh#t as a sledhead, bringing the Salomon though. Hope the snow is still good in March. Cheers Mike.
