Shit For Brains Couloir freshies! We had a large group, so we divided and conquered. 3 of us (Nick, Ian and I) did SFB, 2 (ssmtbr and Mike) did Dog Leg, and 2 (Patrick and Chris) did Dog Shit variation. This winter just keeps on giving...faceshots in May! This day started out with Plan A, changed into Plan B, and then the weather changed our plans for us back to Plan A. It all worked out. Sorry for the fuzzy pics; it was pretty darn moist on Sunday.

We took turns harvesting the powder. Ian, waist deep.

Ooooooooohhh shit! Its baaaaaaaack! Shit To Ski Off Of I-70 Returns! Happy Winter Solstice everybody.

Ian and I squeezed in a couple laps in between storms yesterday. Coverage in Dry is good. Not excellent. Will get better. Ian got a core shot and I scrapped some rocks. We skinned up to the saddle, just to have our normal adventure. We skied the saddle down to the valley. Super nice and long run. Noticed some old avalanche activity, but we did not experience any cracking or collapsing. We then skinned back up to the bench for our second run. Then, a major decision had to be made......our exit plan back to the vehicles. So, after our second run we decided on skiing out the valley and up, along I-70. We were well prepared with a Banquet Beer and whiskey, of course! In the end it still sucked......maybe quicker......maybe.

Up high on the saddle, blue skies and some wind

^^^Photo Cred Ian!!!

First time out with the Canon 7D with a 18-135 lens. I babied it too much last season, so I finally had to take it out. Great DSLR. The frames per second are ridiculous. 170 pics in this short tour!!! The weight was noticeable, compared to my dinky point and shoot that have been using. Cheers to all Buzzards, Happy Holidays!

Well, I have never spent the night in the hospital until last week. Took a little spill at work and ended up doing some pelvis and knee damage. I hope you guys are out there getting some right now...
I will know more about recovery time soon hopefully be good for biking and boating season.
Here are a couple pics from my last day walking in the woods, legitimate white room that day.... I will just keep remembering this day...
