Took advantage of daylight savings on Sunday and toured up to Camp Muir on Mt. Rainier. We decided to leave a car at the bridge and descended 6000ft+ down through the Nisqually Chutes for some spring slush slashing fun. My Arbor Iguchi Pro 162 rode like a dream compared to my K2 panoramic the last time I was up here 2 winters ago.

I went on my first tour a couple weekends ago. My biggest OH SHIT moment came at the very beginning skiing down a little ways from the parking lot off the highway (maybe 100-150 feet vert) and realizing I have NO CLUE how to ski. I was with a group of exclusively skiers so they weren't much help.

Do folks telemark that shit or use heel lockers? I'm on Burton Hitchhikers so basically Sparks.

My solution to split skiing downhill sections so far seems to be to fall over a lot. And by fall over a lot, I mean: FALL OVER. A LOT.

hahaha yep the ski-down portions are sketchy as hell.

I do ok actually. Well.... meaning I don't fall. But the fear of snapping my knees in non-releasing bindings is always there on those ski sections.

 

My secret's in the Speed Tuck 😀 😀 😀

Yea this was the biggest thing, as well as the unattached heel. I know how to ski a tiny bit, enough to pizza down a mellow slope. But my heel suddenly lifting while 'skiing' down was really tripping me out.

Unfortunately I'm out until 5/20. I'm hoping Sierra snowpack can hold out a few more weeks for some fun corn riding by then.

The formations there are so cool.  It would be like shooting a coolie, but with a sheer drop on your left instead of a rock wall.
