Time to pull out the 217 GS skis
The guys came down from Seattle for SkiMoto 2015 and the weather cooperated as usual - they have really good luck!
7" of wind compacted sea foam, looks great but skied like the devil. Gotta go real fast or deal with the density.
Wachs, Thx for all the skiing pics. I never stepped into the back country this winter. I only stepped into my alpine bindings once. I did manage to skate ski and cross country ski. I really missed my powder fix this year.
Thx for the vicarious turns. Think snow! (for next year)
Looks like the snow was skiable though! Nice shots Wachs. Missed not getting down there with you know who for Spring break. Not sure how much Leo even skied this winter.
Mat and I and a few of his buddies skinned up to Illumination Rock last Thursday. Beautiful day and by the time we ate lunch and started down the snow softened and was incredible. All I brought was my iphone so the photos are what they are. Other than skiing at Anthony lakes twice this was my third time on skis this winter But this trip made up for it!
Thx Yogi - Ladukebog - strangest winter I can remember except one back in 76 or 77.
Nice trip to Illumination!
Snowed a little bit then today the summit opened and I got to snap my son and some of his buddies launching!
Summit is holding up great but the bottom is melting and sticky.
What Ladukebob didn't mention in his post a couple back was that we had a Wallowa hut trip scheduled, but as you can guess it was cancelled because of too much snow out there--huts were covered with 20' of snow! HA!
So we opted for a skin up Mt Hood, some MTB, and camping. Found a sweet place to camp up Rd 44 to 4420. Backcountry bust Plan B turned out not too bad. And with some hooliganism around the camp fire--come on, Dan, post up the vid clip of the hold-my-beer-mtb-rides-up-the-ramp-and-over-the-bonfire.
Does this belong in a snow-skiing thread. This "winter" it does!
A little of this:
Some good MTB riding.
Then some of this:
And of course plenty of this:

Woxing up for tomorrow!
Yesterday was a top 5 day for this pathetic season on Mt Bachelor. They reported 3" but there were boot top deep glades and drifts up on the summit. Took one lousy photo as it was a hectic frenzy up there.
Last year was weak, this year is not even close to that new low standard.
One of our best days in 2013/14 and this was a rare sample.
Do we only have memories of the usual PNW pow or is this merely a lull in the pattern?
It'll probably rain all summer.....
You are probably right about that.
Our mountain closed yesterday. We've had snow for the last 3 days.
Yesterday- this was the remnants after the frenzy to scrape around on 6-8" of spring snow which was actually nice (or pathetic for this season). Didn't have time to shoot the good stuff. 7 runs in less than 2 hours, was back in the studio at 11:30 am.
Looks great eh? Skied like a fuking race track - IF you know where the rocks are, good day to not be ski patrol as people were eating basalt.
More of the same today - no action shots as we were hammering! Ran into a bunch of old friends, snow was not bad, had a blast.
The Summit on Bachelor is still delivering. 6-8" last sunday for good action and smooth sliding!
This is only 1 minute long but worth the look!
This is totally irresponsibly dangerous...I LOVE IT!! You rock Dan & Mat.
Well, full disclosure requires the admission that the irresponsibly dangerous stunts were rocked by my decidedly younger friends. Dan rocked the videography and campsite-by-phone video editing.
