    Father/Son Shred Camp 2011

    Headed out last weekend for one of my favorite trips of the season, the annual Father/Son Snowmo Camping trip. We had a great time and I was reminded yet again how great my son is.

    Fatherhood rules!

    At the snow line, the chariots await


    The knife-edge bridge crossing


    Over the river and through the woods


    Shred Camp


    Magic Hour


    Skyler enjoying the view


    Starry sky


    Camp at night


    The next morning Sky's warm up run. Last weeks new snow was still going through the transition cycle so it was slow and sticky.


    Sky makes the most of it


    One corner of the zone. Normally we're up on the peaks with our splits but with the slow snow conditions we opted to explore the lower stuff and find some jibs with the steeds.


    Sky's spring steeze...Hawaiian shirt, no gloves, and mad skate surf style


    He grabs Roastbeef and shows his trampoline training works....now only if he would pull his pants up


    Killin it with the Indy!


    Let's go look over here


    There you go kid


    If I only pass along one thing to my son it's this textbook Indy nosebone. So perfect and probably my favorite shred pic of him to date.


    Dad circa 1995


    On to the next one


    He calls it a f/s 180 nosegrab, I call it a f/s 180 lien air


    Sky in the sky


    Dad's turn


    Cheetah Factory Racing racks make quick work of transporting snowboards...and firewood too!


    Powderjunkie's recipe from a few weeks back, so good we had to repeat


    Magic hour take 2










    Teenagers are always tired in the morning....and lazy....get over here and help me break camp!


    Team Father/Son


    All good things come to an end, time to head home


    Still a fat base in the zone but this bridge is gonna start to get interesting


    Another great trip with my favorite partner. I love you kid.

    I hope to do something like this in the near future.... but still need to wait a bit.

    This annual TR is becoming one of my favorite things about this place. And shit yeah, a roastbeef grab documented in 2011. Maybe there is still hope for snowboarding afterall. Good on ya for teaching your boy the virtues of a stylish straight air.

    Super Awesome!

    ...but making your kid snowboard is considered child abuse, no?

    Not in California. It's outlawed in Utah.
