Went back country skiing nears mores creek on saturday and it was epic nice stable snow and huge powder. A couple of runs almost required a snorkel as I breathed in a lot of snow.

We had a good crew of 6 guys, one snowboarder and one telemarker with the rest on AT gear myself included.

The pictures don't do it justice. Here is our snow pit and our last run.

hows the snowpack? did you check any ground on the way down?
no nasty layers our whole pit broke after two good jumps, conditions were constant all day as the temp stayed low. And consistent across the slope, although we kept it below 33 degrees as we saw a small slide on about a 40 degree slope in a steep gully.

That's enough motivation for me

That just looks like TOO MUCH FUN
I am going to have to break down and rent gear again
I've taken a few lessons - at Kirkwood, Big Bear, and went up a few times
I will have to learn from scratch since it's been a "few years"

ah Chris, the snow always seems deeper on tele gear than AT gear

Naw. Chris is afeared on feeling like he's going faster that he really is on a singlespeed and he's probably afeared of feeling like the the snow is deeper than it really is on tele boards. JK
