that's a lot of cool stuff in one week, congrats!


links broken?     2011-05-21 16:33:31
The links won't work for me.
Edit: I visited the makingturns site too. Good beta. Thanks!


Nice photos     2011-05-21 16:24:35
Looks like a good week for you. I especially enjoyed the Wheeler Pk TR. Looked like fun. I was on that thing in mid winter so ave danger restricted us to the standard descent back to Williams lake from the Wheeler-Walter saddle. You got a lot more quality turns in NM than us!


PS     2011-05-21 16:25:55
yeah the links do not work, I had to visit your site to get the stories. Its if anyone is wanting to check it out before the links get fixed.

Links are fixed. Not sure why it didn't work.

Such a fun week. I wish the weather had cooperated more. This should be a pretty fun spring. I've never seen these mountains covered better, except for west facing stuff. Hopefully we'll be skiing decent lines till August.

New Mexico was really cool. I think I have a few more trips planned for that area and the Truchas Peaks zone


pretty sure we saw your car     2011-05-21 20:02:26
parked at the williams lake trailhead parking lot on 5/13. we skied the NW face of ”Sin Nombre” (UN12819) at the south end of the Williams Lake basin that day. Nice choice of lines on your part, and your photo of Old Mike Pk is quite timely since I'm skiing that area again tomorrow Conditions down in NM are holding surprisingly well given the lean year down south, and the spring storms have helped! Thanks for the TR's.

Those lines I think are worth going back for. I had been having ankle issues the weekend before so I didn't want to push it with new boot liners. I was really considering going for it though.

Must go Back.


Nice!     2011-05-22 09:36:53
You've really been at it! The links work, but I think the photo links (here in the TR) are broken. Unless it's something on Photobucket this morning. Could just be me

What a year
