Cross post from TGR

I just returned home from 2 months in costa rica/panama a little over a week ago. It was an amazing trip. But its good to be back on the board and up in the mountains. Heres some pics from the last week or so. Mostly from hatchers pass area.

stairway to heaven.

Image

Little Su valley
Image

This was really good, I made 3 laps on this.
Image

Alpenglow Is a really fun little ski area when the snow is good. Unfortunately it often isnt due to high winds.
Image

Highland Road
Image

I wasnt planing on going this way, but then I saw this dude drop in.
Image

Geuss which track is mine ;)
Image

Another random guy ripping it up.
Image

I rolled up to hatchers to see this guy right next to the track I laid down from 2 days prior. oops :fmicon:
Image

I want this face in the shade.
Image

Looking out towards the matanuska valley.
Image

From the top of microdot, It was windy and cold as hell.
Image

North face of microdot.
Image


Image

Marmot Mountain. Looking to the left.
Image

And the right.
Image

Image

Image

This should be fun.
Image

It was.
Image

Image

Yesterday I skinned all the way to the top of the pass and then my friend rolled up on his sled and gave me a ride to the backside of Skyscraper peak. Here he is dropping off a rock.
Image

Image

My track, It looks better than it is, there was a tricky crust on top, right out of the frame my nose dived and I had a spectacular tumble resulting in a pretty bloody face.
Image

4/23
I just got over a bad cold and after sitting on the couch for 3 bluebird days I got out and hit a fun couloir. Its been really warm, the snows melting fast. There were wetslides everywhere, so I decided to go with a line I knew would still be in the shade for the most part.

Heres the line from the opposite side of the valley from last season.
Image

Looking up it today
Image

Well I fucked this picture up
Image

Image

Image

It was a good time, still some powderish snow with a few firm spots, looks like were in for some weather in the next day or so, hopefully snow!

Awesome! My pledge of going someplace tropical after getting skunked up there this year has already started to fade from my memory.

Great photos and awesome lines.

Looks like destinations of choice are the PNW, BC and AK right now. How is it going elsewhere? CA, AZ, WY, NV, UT, MT? Anyone else still collecting snowflakes for a prolonged season? I'm watching some clouds roll over the Olympics now, bet there will be another 6" tonight, just like the last three nights.

mumbles -- in tetons we are still getting flakes just no big dumps to disquise the crust that is developing from warm temps. Tomarrow morning I am going to ride glory bowl its been snowing about 2" a day for three days with some wind the bowl should be bottomless. outside of that I think most of us are interested in getting corn cycles in the high peaks of the tetons.

Sick alaskan lines; next season hopefully.
