POV VIDEO – Slaying the Solstice to Moon Crescent & the Sinister Sisters….



Music: Wilkinson – Refugee



Synopsis:

It was a weekend full of sun, warmth and bluebird skies. Powdork and I decided to take a long boulder-hopping walk up to the Solstice Couloir on Friday, followed by two days of sessions with S.P.C and Dblatto over near Roundtop and The Sisters. MildBill thought we were nuts, but that just gave us more energy. As it turned out, we enjoyed a ton of uphill, but encountered decent skiing, great views, and a fair amount of exercise. Dare I say ‘better than expected?’

July 22nd, 2011:

Driving up Tioga and a view of a mound of rock with some ice…

Ellery area coming into view…

Our hike begins…

Getting closer…yet still miles away

Time to put on the crampons…Powdork makes a quick transition.

So much AWESOME exercise!

My view…

666 gets aggressive…

Nice views of a dying winter…

Mono oh Mono….

I didn’t feel comfortable scaling this puppy, so we dropped from below…

Powdork begins his dash back to work…

Get after it man, you earned it!

Its my turn…not a bad line for July 22nd!

Actually quite smooth as well…

Have I mentioned that enjoy skiing down more than the uphill?

Woot ‘r’ us…

This spot will work well for a lunch break before I venture up the Plateau to my Ellery descent…

n3rD…..

Just looking at this dried up all my sweat…

Dana Couloir, Mt. Dana, and Solstice Couloir….

Now atop Ellery, there lies the ‘no fall zone.’

Descent #2 looks a bit longer eh?

Dropping’…

That chute looks smooth….

….July 22nd faceshot

Mid toilet bowl…..



Done skiing for the day!

July 23rd, 2011:

After little convincing, dblatto and S.P.C battled the mosquito clan to rally from Woods Lake to Roundtop.

We are such great friends…skiing just does that to people.

S.P.C is a mountaineer….

Dblatto does some stretching below the Moon Crescent ascent…

666 takes a nap…

We headed up the looker’s left line…

S.P.C wished he had my crampons…

They definitely help..haha

Come on boys!

From the Summit, some nice views…

You can see a lot from 10,000 feet near Lake Tahoe….

‘Hey look, someone brought up my skis!’

Dblatto goes for a ski….

He survived and met up with S.P.C who didn’t wait for my camera…

I might as well give it a go…

Gosh, this is fun…

Next, we traversed over to the Sisters….the view from behind to the South.

S.P.C hates hiking…

…but is a handsome ski model, so he has no choice.

Backside of Kirkwood is shown….

S.P.C takes some SuperG turns….

…on better than expected snow

Dblatto thinks we are at NASTAR…

…and skis down a corn field.

S.P.C continues his descent….

I went down a sliver….why not?

Interesting snowpack….

Dblatto heads down to Roundtop Lake…

…he even made turns…

Definitely and East Coast style….

S.P.C sprayin’…

Leroy, lets do this…

Success!



Time to check out the glissading down to the car…

Tele-glissade is SO hot right now…

Planking on a plank….

‘you do know that will dehydrate you?’

July 24th, 2011:

Back to Sisters with a mission…first up was the corn

then a traverse….

across a bowl…

to transition into spikes that attach to my Tecnicas.

I think this will do….

Powdork showed up to yell obscenities at me from across the valley…

Yippie…skiing.

It was DEEP!

Another traverse to the left yielded another line…

…such a fun walk…

So fresh and so clean….

Did I mention ‘better than expected?’

I left my signature…

…this one is just my pee trail.

Powdork and friends skiing down to Winnemucca Lake….

Time to cross this thing…

666 needed his Comis…

Rinsed…

Kirkwood, CA – July 24th, 2011 @ 2pm
