    Speaking of snowboards, anyone in the market for a split board? Iíve got a 161 Voile Mojo RX thatís been my backup board for 5 years and only seen light use, prepping to sell it - I might have skins, starter bindings (regular Drake snowboard bindings mounted to a slider plate) and ski crampons to go along, just need to see if the skins are still in working order and if they fit this particular board). Iíll be getting pics for gear swap probably Monday but if anyone in OR is interested just let me know.


    And on the obscure gear note ... anyone here into waxless touring on modern skis? Iím not talking grandpaís 50mm underfoot 210 cm setup, Iím talking 80-95 underfoot like Voile Vector BC / Rossi BC 110/125, low angle tromping around with dog and baby on backpack. Iím looking for used gear and also travel advice - hit me up via PM if waxless touring is your jam!

    Wyeaster what's the size of that jones splitboard, and which model is it so I can look up the dimensions? I'll see if my skins are serviceable and will fit your board. If so, you can have em. Likewise on the slider plates and ski crampons just to get you started.

    Ski crampons are not a complete necessity, but the best time of year to start learning and getting your feet wet is during spring corn cycles where you'll be less likely to get into trouble, have better / more stable weather, lots of daylight, and also the snow is bulletproof until 10-11 AM so it's nice to have some teeth under your board when skinning (especially when you're a noob without great skinning technique).

    Did your board come with Voile pucks?

    Well, Ullr must have heard you, as it is currently snowing in Bend and sticking. Looks like some of that storminess down in Cali is making its way up North.

    Lots of rain on Saturday. Widespread agreement among forecast models at this point. Sorry to bear bad news.

    Tempting to cash in a day off Friday. Seems like this whole thing is really unpredictable. The system isn't aimed at us so we'll just get hit by whatever trails off the sides. If I ski Friday maybe it'll be nicer Saturday IDK. Our computer system is super slow RN and I have a ton of work to do before we are closed for 3 days so there is definitely a chance that I will have to work Friday and then it will be raining at Timberline on Saturday.
