Martis Snowkiting 3.1.09

Sunday, March 1st, 2009

Went out to Martis about 9:30am this morning to get the goods before the rain rolled in. Pre-storm kiting is always the best up here. Used the Ozone Frenzy 9m to cruise it and kick it, the Megawatts to stay on top of the soft snow, and the Cloudveil RPK to keep me dry. Wind kind of died around noonish, so we packed it up. Lots of snow on the way, should be a killer week!

First Turns of the Season

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

So this last storm did leave over a foot of snow on the higher elevations in the basin. It was just enough snow to make some turns if you were careful and knew where to look. Here are a few shots from my first day on snow this year 11/3/08. The snow was about a foot and a half of heavy early season snow that should make a nice solid base.

First turn of the season.

 In these pictures, Cody can see in the flat light because he could switch to his low light lens in seconds with the Smith I/O goggle, and is dry and comfortable after hiking in a snowstorm because he is wearing the Cloudveil RPK softshell with Icebreaker base layers. Overall, it was a nice day to kick off the season. Keep checking back for more updates when we get more snow.

The snow was surprisingly good.
