    Day 3 was Friday February 10. My skier buddy couldn't join, so it was me, claymond, and his partner. We were all tired and decided on a short, easy day on McGee Peak. We started at 9 AM and casually climbed the NE bowl. The ascent was uneventful. The skiing was awesome. Mostly shallow, settled pow with only mildly wind affected snow here and there. It was a great way to end the short trip. Unfortunately claymond's partner got a gnarly core shot in her board when she hit a buried metal fence post down low. But she was uninjured and the board was repairable, so it didn't dampen the stoke too much. We all drove home, happy to end the trip with some excellent pow skiing.

    Damn!!!

    Ted26, I’ve gotten skunked due to weather in April and early May. If the window for your trip is not flexible, I suggest having a plan b that’s further to the east, like some rock shoes for the bishop area. Or a trip up to panamint city.

    It depends on your objectives, and a bit on the rest of the winter storms. Generally speaking the later you go the more chances for classic east side corn, verses possibly getting powder days in April, although we do get May powder days on occasion. Also, the later you go the better chance some of the roads will be open giving access to deeper, high terrain. Bottom line, if you want to go big, go late.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Appreciate the input everyone. Our timing is certainly flexible, realistically we’ll wait for a favorable window before sending it over.

    Looks great.

    I'll be back mid April, let's make sure we ski some East side couloirs.

    If this doesn't make you excited about skiing the eastside this spring I don't know what will:

    IDK. Rad skiing but not worth getting killed. I was kind of put off by that post once I realized what almost happened to the next guy to drop in. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cp75NLIrtXz/

    ^^^ yeah, that.

    With the short windows between storms this year it's been tempting to push it. Stay safe out there, spring touring is going to be epic. I mean, eventually...

    Seems to me he had the experience of a lifetime. Also seems to me he would have been safer continuuing the line rather than cutting uphill and throwing in the hip. It's easy for me to say not being there though.

    I think that Nick was contemplating trying to outrun it (in hindsight?) in his insta post...I'd def follow nick's line and cut left and GTFO of the way ASAP. Curious if he was looking over his shoulder or how/when he knew something ripped. If he left that situation unscathed I think he made the right decision...perhaps minus the decision to ski it that day...but I have no idea idea how likely a slide was, just that it happened.
    A good friend would come bail you out of jail. A great friend would be sitting next to you saying..."but damn that was FUN"
