    For anyone stoked about the comming Winter

    My borther and I headed up to Montezuma Basin Friday night in order to reap some goods out of the latest storms. The forecast was for pretty crappy weather (winds to 35mph and a 40% chance of snow). The forecast, however, was ~12hours off because during the night the storm blew in which made for a cruddy night's sleep as we were camped near the bench at the entrance of the basin proper. This turned out to be a blessing though because we woke up to calm winds and a few inches of fresh, cold, winterlike snow.
    In all, we made three awesome laps with the third lap comming down a chute from the ridge that connects Castle and Conundrum. A great day with great snow conditions. You can't ask for much more this early in the year.
    Enough blabbing, on with the stoke.......




    Stoked. (our third run was down the chute lookers right in this shot)


    This is one of two guys we met up there.



    Stoked for lap 2 with good vis. (Watson and Dave are the two guys we met)


    Droping.......




    Dave. (Kick ass dude from Basalt)

    I know there isn't a bike within miles of this post, but I also know there are some guys and gals out there who love the snow as much as the dirt.

    Very Cool, looks like the wind got to it just a bit. I used to pray to the snow Gods. Sometimes I still do.

    Just be thoughtful about conditions. People tend to get stocked and let their guard down early season thinking there isn't enough snow to be dangerous, yet even shallow slabs can take you for a nasty ride over exposed rocks, ect. Two friends of mine where killed in 85 in early November in a compression zone slide, buried 4-6" deep in a gully. Don't let your guard down.

    Never.
    There's no point in going out if you don't come back.

    Well, that didn't suck! I'm stoked that you and bean are getting some Oct. turns. The snow is creeping down the Anch. bowl but not enough to make some turns.


    Winter stoke has begun!!! Good bye bikes, hello skis.... or in your case hello beater split board!!!!

    Actually, around here I'm just a side country knuckledragger .

    It must be painful to see the snow line creeping down the bowl with those brand spanking new Justices leaning against the wall. You'll be balls deep in no time, you do live in AK afterall where a bad winter only drops 800" .
