    I would have had a helmet on if I was there or if i was skiing anywhere. That's fine if helmets are not 'cool' for some folks if they are not skiing the gnar and think they don't need them, but I value my brains pretty highly.

    Many little branches to hit in the woods here. Plus the pitch on Pipeline at the top is pretty decent.

    I know a guy who is pretty set on going, though. Riverc0il on HR. I'm not sure what time he's planning on heading down. I could get you two in touch if you wanted.


    BAHH. So Torn on this.

    I hope they dug a pit.

    Probably got the guy wearing the helmet to do it?

    You really can't be too careful with that sort of thing.
    Good choice, I hear that guy is an avalanche instructor and American Avalanche Association board member.
    (BTW White Grass is a former downhill lift served ski area. Definitely not very steep though, except for the Pipeline.)

    Im glad you're getting some ( as Brit say we got ours at the weekend and it was ankle deep and its melted now)but for the sake of accuracy...what do you mean by 3 ft of powder?
    Do you mean the snow depth was 3 ft or that you where getting 3 ft of ski penetration,
    Usually, well at least out here, we refer to powder depth in terms of ski penetration, for instance boot deep, knee deep, waist deep referring to the depth of loose snow(powder) above our ski plane.
    If it was 3 ft of pow( which it may well have been) then it means you were skiing with powder up to your nut sack or waist depending on your height.
    You need a pretty steep pitch to ski waist deep powder without getting bogged down or else it has to be 4% blower if it's flatter terrain.

    Please clarify!

    A bit farther South, but my buddy didn't have his skis, so he borrowed his friend's snowboard. He's never snowboarded before....

    In workboots.

    "wait, how do you snowboard?"

    Weather report just improved a bit. High of only 34 on Friday (when it might rain) at 3000'. Should stay snow up high. Probably wind affected pow.

    you should be surfing my friend. today got outrageous fun, as will tomorrow and maybe saturday. skinning whitegrass? better for waxless xcbc imo. timberline warrants skinz with better more vert pitch.

    nice to see so many folks taking advantage of the white.

    Dress a tad warm...,maybe? Or maybe it was to compensate from 6 celsius hotel rooms. You should see how we played pool down there.

    Helmet? Wrong guy. We Canadians call it a toque. I even believe it might have been bought at the MRG General Store.

    Okay, on the road again. Google says I'm 5 hours from home...drive should much easier than Monday night. I should borrow MattC GoPro to capture the moment I'll say to borderguard in Canada that I went skiing to WV. I might be locked up in an insane asylum or/and tested for heavy drug use.

    tBatt - the sad thing is Winterplace rarely has that much snow coverage in-season. Keep the WV stoke coming!

    Yes...the vertical is subpar in WV, but that shot is pointing towards the flat Blackwater River Valley (a broad valley at roughly 3,100').

    I think helmets are mos def needed in the east. The trees are tight and rather hard when you hit them (birch, beech, maple).

    I'll end my anal retentiveness now.

    Have you talked to ISBD yet? He was contemplating heading down tonight. I'm not sure if that was dependent on me carpooling with him or not.
    I'm officially out.
