Nice Jim! You got 420 too!! ;) I've never done the whole traverse. Tried once, we got weathered out behind decker for a day and elected to return rather than continue.

Maysho - are you familiar with a guy named Roman Dial from Alaska? I recall hearing about him doing some long way out there glacier traverses up in alaska on skate gear! He was (likely still is) a pretty fit dude. He competed in Eco challenges and was always in the top 5 due to fitness and excellent mountain skills.

By the way, the current record for the Spearhead traverse is just over 4 hours. I still don't believe it!

Not exactly shredding, more like plodding. Ferretlegger and I heading out Glacier Point road for some snow camping. We've been skiing a lot so we decided to snow shoe for a change. It was beautiful full moon but too freakin' cold (6 degrees at night) to pop out for pics. Also my camera battery discharged due to such cold so only a few pics.

12/30 back country on St. Helens in fabulous sunshine. 1/1 Mt. Hood Meadows. The thermometer said cold - but the sunshine and no wind made it glorious.

That video was painful to watch. If that was my goPro video it would have been deleted, not posted. My favorite part was his constant struggle with putting gloves on and leaving his own pair before going to rescue. Oh yeah and only one guy digging.

Susan nice sled! Looks like you guys had a blast! That is what it's all about!

Seamstress! Nice to hear from u! Hood looks cool, still have to go check it out.


Obviously the person who shot that video had very little clue as to what the proper procedure should be...

Here's another tough one..




Oh ya, Vagina chute looks rad!!

I finished the rest of the Disease pics.

Blackcomb Peak and Disease Ridge





Dis Ease





Walking up the ridge






The sunset was beautiful












My line, a little tracky but still good :)






Just before I dropped in











Looking back up at Blackcomb and Disease






One more sunset pic..





Then I shredded home, back to the valley whence I came.
