Slay The Gnar

Documentary of Casey Cane

Sidewall Slough over Bluetooth Rough to Gorgeous NorCal Stuff – 04/15/07


April 14th-15th, 2007


Northern California – weekend edition

Deep Pow Slayers and Ocean Gazers:

666, Slim, Supu, Tyrone, hop and a few firm groomers w/ Turx/Cindy and the 30 other people who decided to slay the gnar at KW on this day.


Arrival at Kirkwood on Saturday morning brought the first snowflakes. Of course, this meant that we had some time to slay the ICE before it got covered.

Temps ranged from 41 F at Hope Valley at 8:30 am to 27 F by Silver Lake at 4:00 pm. Snow, cold, and wind decided to make a strong showing during the day. Snow down to 5,000 ft, and cars sliding off HWY 88.


An utterly MASSIVE snow system PUMMELED the Sierra Nevada range of CA on Saturday.

*edit – not really.

MUSIC: Dillinja – ‘The Angels Fell’

Hope Valley – no snow, and 41 F!!!!! Totally Awesome!

Looks better on the north facing aspects as shown by Carson Pass & Elephants:
