Digital Nation – Night Train

Basom applying his duct tape skins to his boards….

The target…Round Top Peak…

Almost time to ditch the skins…

Booting up wasn’t so bad…

Basom didn’t like it, he said "It tired him"

View behind the summit….

Lake Tahoe….I think

More vistas…Blue Lakes and surroundings

The pitch…

Basom’s line???? Some wetslide activity from the day before

He’s getting really gripped at this point….he wanted to hike around and go to McDonalds…

I told him that we’d hit McDonalds "on the way home"…for a milkshake if he’d just sack up and ski….he did!

Funny, the snow resembled a milkshake..

A boarder got there just before us and did avy control on the face…but it still was sliding out everywhere.

He’s such a photoslave….

and such a great ski model….

that he DIDN’T FALL even once!

Work it, work it, you go girl.

Ty is up to bat, with bases loaded….

He seems to like the "pitch"….

Takes a "cut" on it…

Seems to have a "hold" on it….

The snow decided to throw a change-up, and it started to move on him, but he held it together and scored the winning run.

Now he’s just rounding the bases….

Now if he only could shake that ‘roids’ accusation circulating the tabloids…

The devil guy makes it to the summit….wants to ski an exposed line, on very sketchy snow…

However, he takes a test turn and decides that it is a bad idea…

He turns around a decides to ski an untracked spine instead…

Probably wondering who took these photos, right? We’ll some guys walked up behind us took some pics and emailed them to Ty….thanks guys!

The snow actually had some freshness still left in it…a small crust layer exposed some winter snow underneath.

Definitely a cautious ski….wouldn’t want to fall off the cliff onto hardpack.

Basom cruises down to Winnemucca lake on some stellar smooth corn…

666 with some less intense lines in the background…




666 on the groomer…

I guess he like sidecut on skis….

Ty rallies the lower part down to Winnemucca Lake

…"Take some more turns man, you hiked up that!"

What did you say?

"Cool Tree to Mank" shot

The Result:

PART II – Kirkwood Madness – Day BEFORE long board day!:

We find Kush taking a nap on the plaza…

Arty50 wearing a gorilla suit in 70 F!

…just so he can say that he dropped Upper Cham in it….

Basom going "shirtless" for his fans on Upper Cham…

Ty laughing about the gorilla suit…..he’s a little slow.

But then takes some nice turns down Oops…

Basom links up a double….with the weather starting to change?

OK, so now its officially HAILING!!!!

Don’t believe us?

They closed the lift, we heard thunder, and saw lightning, but we still had 10 people on top of Upper Cham…so core!

666 gets determined…

But he’s afraid the wet snow will just release on him…its about 3:34 pm

Just point it dude…

You’ll be fine…

Told you, you wanker!

Ty tests out his 179 Bros…

Kush pulls a cravasse air…

His older brother goes for some sexy form…

Lph "things" it up over some rocks and sinks into the mank…

Basom attempts the Oops tree slide….

Will it hold?

AMAZING!!! He even cleared Kush! Someone get him a trophy…

AKA finds a fun little line…

Leroy Jenkins sure is proud of you AKA!

LONG BOARD DAY began the next morning…we know what happened there
