Wow- what an end to the season! While we’re a little sad to see the heli depart tomorrow, we’re happy to have had Mother Nature deliver the goods for our guests!

Deep snow, followed by a few days of blue and them even more snow. Big thanks to all who were able to head out this way in the past few weeks and enjoy some of the best conditions of the year. Pics follow for your enjoyment and stoke for next year!

Free Skier DaKine Crew rolls the dice, and comes up big

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

Thanks to Randy Torcom, our partner at DaKine, for assembling a crew of consisting of Eric Pollard, Chris Benchetler, Sammy Carlson, and Michelle Parker, along with Freeskier writer Matt Harvey, photo-guy Bryn Hughes and cine-guy Ike Smith and coming out for a whirlwind 4 day session. 4 days in February, as any film crew can tell you, is a bit of a roll of the dice, especially when you add in the need for good shooting conditions. You can read more of their story here. And for the record, there are other ways to get the blue to come…

Thanks to Michelle Parker for the photos, will post em up when we get more in.
