    Not my video but I lapped the A-z Chutes today as well as the Fire Hole and Hellroaring on the opposite side of the ridge. Got 3 runs each in on the firehole and hellroaring and then hit the a-z chutes to get. My legs were spent from hiking and riding by 2

    No, I am next door at the YC.

    The snow is starting to stack up, tomorrow could be a good day.

    How is that part of the mountain? Obviously I'm far to poor to know.

    Its an entirely separate mountain that is interconnected with big sky via lifts, so YC members (and me) can ski over to big sky. The YC has more skiable terrain then a shitload of resorts including Jackson hole, Telluride, Sun Valley, Deer Valley, Alta, Snowbird to name a few. The terrain is wayyyy better than I was expecting, the trees on the backside of Pioneer have endless untracked low angle powder. The front of pioneer has some nice chutes and steeps.


    I Lapped this the other day and scoring first tracks every run






    Big ski right, spanish peaks lower center with YC behind and to the left

    That's amazing. Did you move out there for good or do you split time?

    Out here full time/with extended "travel" in shoulder seasons/ summer

    Absolutely awesome day, hiked the headwaters ridge 8 times, got first tracks on 5 chutes, 2nd tracks on the bottom half of one after I cut the top to a rock band to shoot photos of a friend.








    To access the chutes on either side of this ridge you take one of the two lifts that dump you near by and hike the ridge. Some sections have fixed lines, but all in all not so bad and some of the best lift accessed terrain around.

    Got stuck behind this group trying to navigate the traverse, they went down one of the chutes to the right and I continued up over the next ridge

    How much longer are you guys out here for?

    Snow has been pretty awesome, been exploring some new lines on certain aspects and have gotten into some very tight steep chutes one of which had to be 4ft wide and 40 degrees. Going to have to start taking a go pro out to get some footage.

    tell me about it, i use to live for skiing. The last couple years i've been plowing through the winters storms and working another 50 hours construction and didn't have time.

    In March of last year I started a new job/career and already used all my accrued vacation days since my 6 month mark and been working lot's of Weekends, B U T....... next winter I'm planning on taking more than a couple week days off for some powder days and maybe even get some new gear.

    God knows I need a new pair of boots and ski's. Still rocking my 2004 Salomon x-wave 10's and 2005 Salomon Pocket Rockets.

    Have you been out a lot this season?

    Waterville was the 1st for me sadly..
    I get fooled by the conditions in my backyard like a moron and think that the conditions at the mountain must be bad

    Heading up to Okemo for some riding with friends Mon-Tuesday!!!

    I’m pumped as this will be my first time at a bigger mountain.

    Any recommendations for that mountain for a beginner-mediocre snowboarder? Lol

    Vail is the owner. Okemo, Sunapee, Stowe, and in the market for Jay. Expect to eventually pay for parking and no bags on floors just in pay lockers.

    I did get the OK from the wife to go back out west with my Dad next year though. Historically (before house and kid) my Dad and I plus another father-son team would do two trips a year. January is always a rotating week to try out new mountains. Last week in February we go to Copper in CO for 7 days; 4 days at Copper and 3 we'll hit a selection of Breck, Keystone, Vail, Beaver Creek, A-Basin, etc. Not sure yet which trip I'll take but I'm stoked to be getting out again, it's been 4 seasons since I was on the slopes!
