I’m still using my 20yr old atomic beta ride 11.20s.

Ordered a Barryvox S to replace my Pieps DSP Pro. I read some stuff that said they have issues and this is kind of a straw / camel thing after using Pieps for 30 fcuking years. Barryvox was 20% off.

Ordered an Alpride SuperCap33 E2, 10% off.

Unfortunately it'll be too difficult to claim VAT on either given we'll be travelling by train from the EU into CH. Almost worth de-training in buttfuck Austria for the $500.

That was a thigh burner for sure.
That angle didn't do the riding any favours. Really flattened some very steep stuff.

Big avalanche inbounds in Tahoe today at Palisades. One dead, one broken leg and two recovered uninjured.

Storm snow on a rain slab was always going to be dicey. Probably only the low snowpack keeping people inbounds that has prevented backcountry deaths.

Saw that.

In other snow news I sent Mrs PeepeelaPew a Reuters article about a gondola line nearby hit by a tree that caused the cabin to fall. Danish family inside suffered serious injuries.

Decent amount of snow falling at Dodge Ridge now Boo. Perfect day for it today in the sunshine

If my boy wasn't filling up weekends with basketball and baseball I'd be headed there this weekend.

My son and his family are there right now. Well, Blackcomb.

Says the day before they arrived was 2.5 hours wait. After a massive snow dump the night before.
Since he's been there, nearly a week, there's virtually no waiting.

I still don't buy the "official" narrative about 9/11. Oh sure, it happened, fcuk yeah. But who and why and how I'm, not convinced it was what we've been told.

Think he took this a couple of days before they left Toronto. I’m assuming it’s a web cam.

With a line that long you might already be at home.

5 hours of boot to shin deep today. Good fun but the body will tell the story tomorrow. It's hard to go from zero to flat out. Back already sore.

Nice.

1-3 feet falling this weekend, but the freeze level is pretty high.
