Saturday class... small group, 6 riders.


Lookout for holes... All this shit should be filled in by now.


Surprises people, the slopes they think are avalanche terrain. "You think that's steep? Shit son, that's not even steep enough to slide. Ride it all you want."


Pokin at the December/January ice crusts in the snowpack


This might be the first shot of me all season...




Then having some fun in the backcountry after we got through all the material for the day


Roughin' it in the parking lot ... one heated trailer to thaw the sleds overnight, another heated trailer to crash in.

Sunday's class was about twice the size.




Fresh snow that fell overnight on top (~2"), old stuff on that, couple ice crusts in there, some depth hoar under the ice.


'doo found a hole!


Later in the day... wipe everyone out practicing shoveling techniques. Go in all gung-ho, and you'll last about 3 minutes. Save your energy and slide the snow back to your heels, go a lot longer.


Favorite part of the class.


Probe in at average burial depth, and excavate over a ton of snow.


Lot more work than you'd expect. 7 minutes... that's after the beacon search and a probe strike... Do you trust the guys you ride with?


Then back into the trees for some freeriding... "Hmm, yeah, i'm not gonna fit through that..."




Ended up a little further out than we expected... marathon trail ride back to the truck, load up, and back into town. Truck t-stat stuck open (better than sticking closed, I suppose), still in closed-loop but at a whopping 8.5mpg the whole way down the mountain...
