Backbone Media and Frank and Brittany Konsella sent the invite to head out for a little Black Diamond Media trip over the weekend. With access being so easy these days on the pass, it’s hard to say no. I found myself strolling up the ridge with Penn Newhard and Sam Coffey for our first climb of the day, and much to everyone’s surprise the freeze was slightly better than expected which made for perfect skinning conditions and some incredible corn conditions to start the day.
After our first descent off of mountain boy, we said farewell to Penn and JLD and continued on for a short skin to another descent. We were a little bit late and the skiing wasn’t what we hoped, but the scenery didn’t disappoint and we made the best of it.
We headed up and chose a northwest aspect that didn’t disappoint until we dropped below the 11,000 foot level, and then it was full on backseat riding the boat skiing through the unfrozen mank.
Fun day with a fun group. Inde never really disappoints.
