Spring Powder Day at Squaw 3.31.10

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

A Spring Powder Treat – Squaw 3.31.10 from Nathaniel Mildner on Vimeo.

After a taste of spring for a few weeks, mother nature has sent a little reminder of winter our way here in Tahoe.  This was unusually light snow for spring in Tahoe and the deepest I’ve skied in several years if not my entire life.  Good Times! Even though this was all shot in bounds, I carried my full kit of avalanche safety gear including my Deuter Freerider Pro Pack and Mammut Pulse Barryvox avalanche beacon. Squaw Patrol does an excellent job of avy control, but with that much fresh snow you can’t be to careful. The one piece of gear that I wish I had was a snorkel! A couple of these runs I had to stop and rest because I was literally choking on snow.

Rose Knob Corn Skiing in February

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010

Started hiking up Rose Knob this morning at 6:45am and made it to the skiers left saddle area around 8:30ish. I was on the Black Diamond Zealots with 01 Tele bindings and ascension skins. Mike was of course sporting his new Deuter Freerider Pro 30 backpack. A very difficult and steep skin up during the early morning light gave way to some softer snow once the sun came up and much easier skinning all around. We waited around at the top for about a half hour and our wait was well worth it. We jumped in to the true South face off skiers left shoulder and had just about perfect 1 inch corn all the way out. I was using my Pieps DSP Avalanche Beacon just in case anything had gone, as there was a pretty wet slide path right next to where we were  skiing. Then, it was off to work! Here are some pics:

Mt. Rose Backcountry – Dawn Patrol Report 12/29/09

Tuesday, December 29th, 2009

Headed up to the Mt. Rose Area this morning for an early dawn patrol run on Incline Lake Peak. Got about 3 inches at 6,000 feet last night and probably 6-10 in. at 8,000 feet. It was super dry, awesome powder that made for some great before work turns. Kevin and I had out Black Diamond Megawatts out and it was his first time on them, and all he could do was smile wide. We are both using the Black Diamond 01 Tele binding on them and they simply rule. Everybody had something from Tahoe Mountain Sports on and we appreciate that business very much. Mike is using his Deuter Freeride Pro 30 everyday now and Jeff had his new Black Diamond Guide Gloves on along with his BD Traverse Poles. Here are a couple images and some video from this awesome morning in the backcountry.

And some video for your viewing pleasure as well. This video was NOT taken with the Vholdr ContourHD 1080P.
