not a bad spot for a hut
one of the 2 days the weather broke enough for us to get into the alpine
the other day. getting onto the granite glacier
what we spent most of our time doing:
i put in 20 entries ($15 each), but the other group in the hut only put in 2. you actually don't need to be an ACC member to enter the lottery. i've been to icefall a couple times, so awesome there. it's a commercial not ACC hut though so it's a bit more expensive
this was from my last trip there:
kaston- is that a hut you can skin to? I know Golden Alpine Holidays has a hut in fairy meadows as well, that you take a heli to. EDIT- watched the video- yep HELI time
all time winter here- been slacking lately but hit 115 on the last resort day and have 2 banked slalom races this week, gonna start tackling some bigger lines next week. Jeremy Jones was here in the Crazy Monutains, NE of Bozeman filming with Carter and Robyn VG last thursday.
Day 69. Today was officially the last day of the szn around here. This is the latest we've been able to ride around these parts, at least. 'Til next szn again 😥.
Just a short clip from early April, the final week my main local hill was open for some turns.

Just getting around to posting this, but was up at Mt. Hood for Memorial Day (sorry couldn't meet up dudes, was on a tight schedule). The weather was perfect! Got some riding and hiking in the same day. I love Oregon. One of my best trips anywhere in the world so far.
Then just went to Chile with some buddies. Went to Valle Nevado Really fun experience but we are spoiled at the resorts in the states.
Mark finally posted this clip on the Baker road gap. I got to see it when we were down there, but damn it’s still so rad.
