Struggle with your Skins? G3 Love Glove!

I know a lot of splitters who would like those.

I am a cheap bastard so I just use the cheat sheets that come with my skins. They start to fall apart after a while though, so make sure you duct tape the edges of them and they last for at least 100 days of riding

Although the love glove seems like a lot less ghetto option, which most people would be into. cool idea

It might not be very steep...

All those peaks in the background of the shot on the chair lift look very enticing…

And weather permitting, I might go check a bit of that out this weekend. Not quite enough coverage yet though I don't think, although there looks to be some nice treeline chutes to send down to the valley floor. The access to skin up there (the hart range I think its called?) is super exposed. If you ever want to have a good old fashioned overhead hazard to ski under, thats the place

Yeah the hill is closed monday-weds. And nobody goes up there thursday/friday, so there is lots of pow to be had. I think the video is enough proof of the snow depth…lol. And that was all right on the main runs ALL DAY! 15 runs of fresh tracks to be exact

But still pretty fun. And no lineups, no competition for lines, no tourists…

It's powderking! And there is already a 2+m base. Yesterday had over 60cm waiting for us and the other 30 people in northern BC who decided to go skiing/boarding on a friday…

0?C
A mix of rain [HTML_REMOVED] snow

allow me to translate:

+4 and raining. and the snow depth is measured where it falls off the roof beside the lodge.

I have sledded a few times now, and it is definitely a riot. My point is that I don't even want to bother screwing around with a shitty old sled. If I were to get into it, it would be full on with a good newer machine that I could trust.

I rode on a brand new polaris RMK something, and it changed my sledding experience. So I think I'll just wait til I have the cash to drop on a nice machine and get into it.

Backcountry Noob: Advice for buying gear

Spend the most money on boots. Buy crappy skis, but get good boots for sure. Boots that hurt your feet = miserable days no matter what. Comfy boots + cheap crappy skis = still have fun.

K. we can just make Lee proud and ski the 30km of FSR, then the 1000m of vert. If we are lucky and they are logging/mining exploration it could be plowed up to 25km.

damn interior flatlands

Put some tracks on the land cruiser! Or screw your down payment on a house and buy a sled instead. Or we could just go one of the other 183907594873598475 places in BC we don't need a snowmobile.

rad! Bring those sleds up here. I got beta on the goods. I suspect it needs more snow first.

we killed jay's borrowed sled…so no more sledding. And there is no way I am buying one until I can get a new-ish one. Old sleds are such beater pieces of junk, there is always something going wrong haha

Nicely done. Sled lapping on a cat terrain is defintely the way to go.

Still looks pretty thin, eh?

Yeah having the roads punched in already made life easy. It was pretty good coverage…a few sticks here and there. And I was just a dumbass jumping off pillows and hitting a rock garden haha, that wasn't really representative of the coverage.

If you are out skiing/riding/sledding in the revy area, beware of surface hoar buried down about 60-80cm. It was still pretty reactive above treeline. We didn't see any naturals, but our pits gave hard results on it, but clean pops when it went. It should heal out in time though…
