^^^^^ohhhh nice

We are on another winter road trip with ultimate destination Bozeman. Our first stop was our usual ski spot, Kirkwood. I had two 12,000 foot days and my legs are feeling it!
I am so so so wanting to jump off this cornice on Fawn Ridge, but the birthdate on my driver's license says "No, don't be silly". Oh to just turn back that darn clock for just a day.

I want to jump in....but alas, I better not.

Today the clouds were rolling in and snow was starting pretty briskly but it's not expected to be a big dump.

Michael at the top of the run we always warm up on. Staying warm was more challenging today compared to yesterday's full on sun.

Decided to post some stoke to Big Mike's thread, though it could fit in "Roger's Pass":

Splitboard and hard boots ^ (Dynafit TLT Mtn's) are awesome tools! I like what he says, "Because 90% of the day is going up and suffering, you hafta enjoy that too. The last 10% is the best part, but you have to enjoy that other 90%, because you won't be coming back, if you don't like that walking."

Heal up soon, Big Mike!

Yeah. . . here's some STOKE!

They did it again. . . hot off BigMtn's SnowReport. . .

"6:00am- I could see the moon and stars on my drive up this morning so it looks like we might start off the day with great visibility."

Is there anything worse than having snow and not being able to see? I think I'd take a drought over this!

Off to Bridger today...unfortunately no big freshness predicted for a few days...

You guys rule!! Thanks for the stoke. I really needed it after last night.



These might be hard, but every snoriders best friend is ski patrol!!!


Take pictures honey!!!! Really?????? YES!!!!









Worried Sandra accidental self portrait.



Thumbs up for the Heli!!!



I can't say enough about the work that Blackcomb Ski Patrol does. They are true heroes. Quick and amazingly efficient! Top notch really!

I will always be in their debt. Were they not around I might not be tapping these words. Although, by the sound of Ekat's story, maybe I might, but I would be a lot worse off.

SCARY EKAT!!!!!!

I would describe my experience as smooth. Thanks to my heroes in Red!!

Can skiing a wind blown hard crust be considered shredding? Yesterday on Copper Mt. Idaho.

Down lower, protected by the trees, much better for shredding.
