Free-Riding the Sierra's

The forecast for the sierra's was calling for 6 feet above 8000 feet Lars, Chopo, and myself hopped in the van drove all night. Alpine meadows parking lot, unloading the free ride vanDank moss, fresh snow big sierra treesLars playing on Alpine's terrain

This sequence is a spine Lars skied at Sugar Bowl, "Stress" dubbed by Chopo really called palisades the pictures do this line no justice nice job Lars

Arnau Fernandez captain of the Chilean Free ride Team showing us how to suss

My first time skiing in California exemplified what follow skier Boyz member Dylan Crossmen said "I want to reinvent the real free rider, the rider who rides as free as possible". Thanks to Chopo Diaz and our Chilean friends we did some serious sussing staying in Lar's van (living out of a van is awesome.) And getting hooked up with Arnau's Chilean magic trick we skied Squaw and Sugar no costa. I know that its been mostly new big mountain lines on the blog, embrace all aspects, spines, pillows, airs steeps, chutes, and or course snow that sticks to the rocks. Like the presidente' says go there ski it. simple I can live with that. ride free. ---- bret
