I'm surprised they're not smoking.

I kid, snowboarders are awesome, I'm even friends with a couple of 'em.

Chris Davenport had posted on facebook that he did a "1000' mixed line" on the NW slope of Pyramid Peak yesterday...

Maybe he "did" it, but I sort of doubt he skied it.

As much as it pains me to say it, not all climbs are best descended (or even appropriate to) with skis.

I agree.

I found Chris Davenport's post to be rather vague, but I assumed from his choice of words he was inferring that he had skied Pyramid.
