Well, despite last week’s mega dump, the snow melted out pretty quickly. I’d say at this point we’re negative 10″ from where we were before the storm! Nevertheless, in the spirit of continuing the never ending hunt for the gnar we went up to see what was left. It was EXTREME (you can tell because it’s black and white)!

Between the patches, we had to do some sketchy downclimbing.

Down lower though we found some pow, and Christian slashed it before waving to the honeys.

Wouldn’t be a day on the hill without a mega extreme straightline to the road.

Snow this weekend? Yes, please!

    Is that a ‘naked from the waist down’ Schuss in photo 1? If so that redefines extreme!

      Sadly(??!!!) no. We are just living by the previously defined notion of extreme.

    As I’m sure you’ve noticed from some of my photos, I’m a big fan of very contrasty black and white images. These images take it to a whole new level. :D Some good stuff.

      Heh. Yeah ive seen your recent very strong work. These aren’t going for anything serious. Just joking around. The extreme contrast contrasts our not so extreme schuss. ;)
