“We had a 47cm day last week – I rated it a 2 out of 10.”  –Mike on pow

I hadn’t spoken to Mike since we finished up our snowboard roadie over a month ago – he sure has been keeping busy since then.
He completed his Avalanche Skills Training level 1 course and now heads into the back country at least twice a week. The guy gets to ride powder the quality of which the rest of us can only dream about.
He cut a cornice off the top of a chute.

A cornice. Off a chute. Yeah. I know.

He went cat skiing the other day with a bunch of his friends from ski school. Even the guide was impressed with the snow and terrain “We don’t get up into this stuff very often” he mentioned. Mike was more than proud to tell me about the 30 foot cliff he and Joel had dropped. In. Sane.

Needless to say I’ve booked a week off work so I can get out there as fast as possible.
Take note of the high-cost, high-fashion gear he is riding. I think it helps him ride better.
