Item: November 2011 Splitboard
Displays the photo gallery for a selected Gallery Album.After early November dumps in the Paific Northwest, there was rain–snow–and rain. Indeed, ‘variable’ seemed to be the word of the day near every day. But this didn’t stop us from heading to the mountains–from peeling apart our skins for the first time and venturing out in search of powder turns and alpine relief.
This gallery represents a month spent away from the hordes, deep in the Mt Baker, WA backcountry and a little taste of the snow that continues to fall at Eaglecrest, AK. From the first weekend of November and light snow atop light coverage to the deep, stable days mid-month, and the wind-scoured alpine of late November, it’s a look at a month in which we returned to the mountains to find our legs, some turns and the company of close friends–and proof that any day in the mountains is a good one… no matter how variable it may be.
