    The new snowboard is itching for some sliding and I just signed the kid up for his first snowboard lessons today.

    Snowboarding is the new mountain biking, except you're not bound to follow any particular trail. Every ride,every new line you take downhill, heck - every time you get on the board, it's a brand new experience. Sorry, but you can't say the same for mountain biking (at least to the same extent.)

    Except for the economics of it (equipment and passes aren't cheap) as well as the time it takes to get to and from a ski hill, I'll never really understand people who live in snowy parts of the country and don't engage in some sort of snow-required winter activity, whether it's XC skiing, alpine skiing, snow machining, ice climbing, snowboarding, back country skiing, snowshoeing, and the like. I learned a few years ago that putting the bikes away for the winter is the best thing to do to keep the passion for biking alive every year.

    EDIT - WOO HOO - BOGUS OPENS ON THURSDAY!!!!

    Some people love long winters. I used to when I was younger. I relished the 9 month ski seasons. Now I am content to take what comes. In bad snow years, biking fills in nicely. In cold years some of my friends go skating on huge frozen lakes. Someday I'll have a fat bike with studded tires and ride the creeks.
    This year it'll be a bunch of days at Bridger Bowl, learning the remodeled lines of the new Bridger Lift. I hope to also go to Discovery and Teton Pass at least one time each. Awesome views of the Selkirks, Tim. Be careful out there.
    I don't know what trail we're on, but at least it's getting dark

    Caught myself looking at a rode bike today-something I won't be able to use for atleast 4-5 months at best. Had to pull myself away.

    Are there any yurts in the idaho selkirks? Should probably get one more trip in before the baby thing happens.

    I live in seattle, and people think theres this thing called winter. They run and hide and stock up on everything, for 2 days of snow...I used to live in Minnesota. I miss the really cold nights, and lots of snow. I wouldnt mind living in it, but I am mostly alone lol.

    not idaho, but big mountains give me a woody.
    I call the bowl in the last pic the sharks tooth bowl. I watched a helicopter do a hammer head off the top of that bowl. it was pretty cool to see the heli skiers paying big bucks to go where i was.

    Mmmmm...pow. Unfortunately, over here all we have are muddy afternoon trails and rock hard ice up at Ice Planet Hoth, er, Bogus Basin. One of those winters, I suppose....

    scenery shots

    I would think this place would be an easy place to ski for the backcountry skier who uses a sled for access. 12-15 miles of forest service road put you at the base of the ridge. and than pick your way in from there.

    Don't get your Willy in a Wonka, Piglet. If you can't ski the hard, you can't ski s!ht. Oh wait - you snowboard. Hahaha. There is no greater metaphor for America gone soft than snowboarders whining about how hard the snow is. Except for maybe the Teabag party. Or those bubbleheads doing the four-stroke.

    There'a alway's midget wrasslin' fer yah.

    No problem on posting the location.
    the selkirk crest sits between priest lake and the pack river. you can access from the east side of priest lake or from the pack river. I tend to prefer the pack side. Becasue it is an easier drive from cda. the pack river road is north of sandpoint. good kayaking in the spring(decent hard techinical river). you would turn on the pack river road and go back in till the parking lot. About 5 miles off of 95. The snowmobile trail follows the pack river for quite aways. about 7 miles from the parking lot is a right hand turn. You would follow that up to where the bridge use to be over mccormick creek. follow the goat trail up that for about 5-6 miles and it will put you on mccormick ridge. from there go where you want.
    If looking on a map, look for gunsight peak, fault lake, mccormick lake and you can back track from there if you wish. If you are using a sled for access lots of great day runs. if skinning from the bottom, check out jeru peak. I have heard of a few select individuals doing tours in there but they seem to be the very hardcore. I did a 60 mile loop on saturday and there was still lots of terrain we didn't get to. this is avalanche country so be prepared with the tools of the trade. Let me know if you need more info or if you do go check it out.

    Bloom would be an easier place to ski but it is still 12-15 miles from where you park.
    sleds do give skiers a very big access advantage.

    Location is self-limit 'cause of the need for a sled. Sweet spot though!!!

    Cross-country skiing has been marvelous all week around Poky. Pack in the mountains is very high and we've had 5-6 inches of fresh snow down here in the city. I might snap a picture or two tomorrow ... only fair since I won't be able to hit the trails on my bike for at least a month.

    I had a little excitement a couple of weekends ago. Caused and surfed\road a slide out. Not fun. But learned a couple of more lessons. This wasn't the first slide i have been around and probably won't be the last. here are some pics.

    it is still full on winter inthe high country. We keep getting more and more snow. Been a pretty decent winter. Next we have kayak season and than some biking.
