    Shasta

    Shasta 3/30-3/31



    after spending the day on Lassen yesterday, new crew members met up at Bunny Flat for the new objective.

    Isaac had to return to work, Swanny had to take a sick day due to a wipeout on Lassen.

    Myself, LiketoRide , and JimW wold be the players today

    JimW all smiles on His first day of the new season



    Looks pretty good considering He drove all night to be here

    It was HOOOOOOOTTTT. The heat was working on Buffy. The heat was working on us. Buffy was trailing behind, not sure if it was the heat, or our odors.

    After Helen Lake Buffy made the call to drop. I had my eye on the Trinity Chutes, Jim had his eye on Thumb Rock Chutes. We arrived at The Thumb at 3:30. I had to say no to dropping this line due to time and energy. I wasnt sure if I could skin back out of the hole due to heat and exhaustion. But they sure looked tasty



    That big wet slide didnt add any good feelings about dropping this line in the 80 degree heat either

    Trinity Chutes. Someday..........Someday



    Shasta is HUGE Here is JimW looking down the Thumb Rock chutes. Mt. Lassen off in the distance



    Finally it was time to ride. 5500 feet of corn awaits

    Monday with Mike

    Sunday evening everyone had to go home. Except for Me and Mike

    we awoke to this view




    Monday was no repeat though. Light cloud cover and some wind kept everything above Lake Helen rock hard

    Mike skinning up avalanche gulch on a beautiful Monday morning



    Monday was no repeat. Because of wind and light clouds the snow above Lake Helen stayed rock hard. We pulled the triggger and enjoyed around 4500 feet of corntopia

    Thanks to all the people who joined up on this trip. Eveyone should go to Shasta at least once

    I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you different.
