    Nice! I have to go there and see if the boys can upgrade my beacon. I'll say hi. They must be loving life right now. I just met one of their cooks @ Shames the other day. Keen tourer from Cali.

    Al, you know what I think.
    Scotsman, sluff management was req'd on Z-3. Dan's track was in between Mark (lookers Lt) and me (Rt) and was mostly obliterated by sluff in the top middle of the photo. He went first and the sluff he started was probably sz 1.5 that ran about 1500 vert ft. It started slow but gained momentum. Dan avoided that sluff then triggered another small one below the little bump he aired off, he rode that sluff for about 30m then skied out
    Nothing like sluffs thatll bury you 4' down. Jeezus those are big sluffs.

    What were the avy conditions like that day? Was big open terrain like that really completely uneffected by wind? I just can't compute that size of sluffs.

    Plus, Eric better be aware of the rollers at the bottom. 2m less base this year is going to make the course a little more um, sporty.

    Oh, and I still haven't heard from your race coach there (2 emails later).
    i think the moon was in a bad phase last year? Eric will hit those bumps at 160 in those soft AT boots he always wears

    Yeah pretty big I guess (?), but I'm not sure you would have got buried 4'. Bigger concern was getting strained through the trees in our eyes, though going for a 1000' ride would not be fun. We figured (because of previous run on same aspect) the sluff would start slow so if we found ourselves in it we could manage it and/or ski out of it before it got moving too fast. Yes it was pretty much all completed unaffected by wind. Avy conditions were considerable/moderate/moderate which in our world is pretty decent. The bigger danger that day on that aspect was cornice fall.

    I can help with the food and powder, however my unemployed status may make large beer purchases difficult. I can however hook you up with a "beer connection", for no additional fees. Oh, and I can also shelter you in all likelihood. Be great to have ya.

    No worries. If there's one thing in life I've learned it's how to be self-sufficient when it comes to beer. I'm a bit of a survivalist in that regard.

    Won't happen this year but worth looking toward for next. Thanks for the offer.

    Well it's been pretty good. We've got some scary conditions starting though. With the bunch of new snow coming it'll be sitting on lots of wind slab and pockets of surface whore widespread. 2 weeks eh... who knows. Here's what weather network says:

    http://www.theweathernetwork.com/weather/cabc0292

    Here's what snow forecast says:

    http://www.snow-forecast.com/resorts...ntain/6day/mid

    Here's what my buddy Mark and I skied a few days ago (the blue line on the left). We named it Cinnamon Bun.



    Might get a couple of photos of the line, buddy had an iphone at least. It was easier last year because we've got a couple of metres less than usual right now (but it's starting to catch up). This year it was a little narrower and bonier. Few bits of ice on it too. Not as powdery as we thought it would be.

    Keep in touch. May be able to put you up, but there's a possibility a couple from Montreal might be occupying my place for a month (not confirmed).

    thanks. we'd have a place to stay, my guy lived there for 6 months last year. I'd def hit you up for some touring as that kind of terrain and snowpack is way out of our usual (unless it's super sketch obvs).

    I wasn't sure if you got all super coastal melty late March or what usual pattern was.

    It's either that or hit a beach in Mexico for a week later in the spring. He's feeling meh about the idea of going north so I'll have to work on that.

    Sure, I'll take you out if I can. If I can't, I'll hook you up. March isn't usually super coastal melty, it doesn't usually get that way until late April (when the sz 4's and 5's happen )

    Work on the boy, you can go to mexico anytime. This week's shaping up and we usually get a shitload of snow in March.

    And Lee - Talon's been living in his Arctic Oven pretty much the entire winter. Camped out below the Dome for about a month, now shifted the hacienda to Hidden Lake. The young lad's getting away from everything and getting after it large.

    Had a decent weekend in the PeeGee, tree line and below had >3cms of hoar on the surface and a good 10-20cms of powder below that. The southern flow has put on some hudge cornices that have ended (for now) a couple of the easier accessed coolers that are on the evergrowing to do list.

    Even got in a easy sled day on Monday, funneh how 600+lbs and an engine kills breakable crusts..

    I'll post some pics later

    Heard there's been no snow on the ground in Terrace since the beginning of January which is very unusual and unexpected. Was hoping to get up there this year but looks like I'll be moving my plans over to next ski season.

    Sparkletarte I'd be up for a trip up there with you next year.

    Goldmember... If a 7hr drive is a dealbreaker but extra cash isnt... I bet you could fly out of Spokane. In the end (depending on layovers) it'll probably take just as long as driving to YVR and flying from there and will cost 2x as much.


    I think that's what I like the most about smaller places in B.C. They're usually a pain in the ass to get to, and once you arrive you either want to stay forever or leave right away and never come back.


    The last time I skied at Powderking there was too much snow and nothing was steep enough for movement unless it was groomed. The only other time I've been in snow that light and bottomless was at Snowbird. When I told people I was from BC they would ask me WTF I was doing in Utah.

    I also got to visit the Mackenzie Hospital. Probably the only time I'll ever be a hospital's only patient. And I left in worse shape than I arrived.

    I skied at HBM once too and it was so foggy and windy that I thought I was moving but I wasn't and I fell down. And another time I was moving but thought I wasn't and also fell down. I eventually made it to the bottom of the triple chair and it was way better over there.
