A Completely Average April

April 26, 2010


We poked our head (we share one, it saves weight) in the Great Gulf, but weren’t happy with the way the snow had piled in during the storm, so we decided to play it safe and enjoy the snowfields instead. Allen continued to just barely tolerate the skiing that day.

Christian totally meant to do this… or maybe he just forgot how to ride pow.

Even Greg put down the camera for long enough to get a few turns in.

Although, Greg only turned left, making his descent significantly more awkward. (Zoolander syndrome)

It was surreal being up on Mount Washington skiing powder, and having it absolutely nuke snow at the same time. It also got a little scary toward the end of the day, as the new snow was piling up and the winds were increasing. We played it safe, and called it an “earlyish” day, rather than hiking up for another lap of faceshots, with a risk getting buried or hurt. Christian enjoyed slashing the last hazard of the day.

      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.
