A Completely Average April

April 26, 2010

After following in Icelanticskier’s tracks down that gully, Allen and Greg then decided to go check out a few of their favorite lines on Mount Clay. Neither of them had been there since June of 2009, but they had no problem finding their way. Greg had a line in mind that he’d been dying to get a photograph of for over a year. Photo-slut that he is, Allen was happy to oblige. You be the judge. Was it worth waiting for?
The picture Greg has had in his mind for 12 months

Unfortunately the line was broken up, but fortunately the snow was absolutely glorious.

Sometimes lines are more fun (spicy) when they’re a little broken up. Indeed, as Allen demonstrates here, a “low snow year” is a far cry from a “no snow year.”
A low snow year is NOT a no snow year

Down the drain goes Allen.

      D: thanks for checking in dude. Sorry it didn’t work out to meet up on Saturday. We’ve been basically calling our lines as we see them based on real time conditions… so yeah… that means good skiing, but also being really flaky for anyone who we are trying to meet up with. sorry about that. We actually did pass through OG, and i checked my phone to see if i could give you a ring and see if you were there, but i couldn’t get service. It will happen sometime! thanks again, and pray for snow!

    Excellent as always guys. Yeah, I’d say that shot was worth it……but I didn’t have to climb up there to get it. ;-) You guys are animals. More pow on the way….

      Thanks Gregg. I should dig out the shot I have from last season when the thing was covered in a veneer of ice, and both Sam and I refused to ski it even though we knew it’d be an incredible picture.

    Nice work as always. Hope you guys plan on making another calendar this season… I see a few shots just from April this year that would work great.
