Pioneer Mountain Yurt Trip Part 1

Once and a while you have to learn the hard way.

This is the start of a five day yurt trip to Idaho's Pioneer Mountains.

You Might think sleds make skiing easier.

Could have just walk right over that tree and had running shoes on for the mile of dirt and rocks that made the sleds run a little hot.

But once you get up to the peaks the mountains make all your trouble's go away.

This is looking down that north chute. On the right in thed picture above.

We where on are way to the Comma chute on Cobb mountain so we passed up that north chute.

This is a little freerider zone we found we could lap with the sleds.

All of the sleds on this trip had a roll or two. Some hit trees and some hit rocks.


This is the north chute of Cobb. We had our sights set on this so even with the firm conditions some of us still wanted to ski it.

A good family meal after a long day.

Just a quick update will add more info and picks soon.

Peace Crossman.

Check out the trailing arms on this sled. Hurricane ties a hammer an a nail to get there lag bolts into the aluminium to brace where they both broke.

Real Time Expedition Tracking Test; Owyhee River

A few of us are heading up to Oregon today to run the Lower Owyhee River. This will be a 5 day river trip in the Eastern Oregon Desert. With this being an interesting and remote river trip, it seems like a good opportunity to test out our SPOT Beacon shared page for tracking future ski expeditions. Satellite location updates should be posted the the following page between Monday evening 5/23/11 and Friday 5/27/11. http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0Jf9PzZyTpSzVJZFtqEZfD4YOhg8bhaAT
