I’ve been having a blast skiing this week at Valhalla Mountain Touring. Every day is the new best day of the season. Here are a few photos from the Valhalla pow fest of the past few days.
Now this wouldn’t be wildsnow without a bit of gear nerding. The snow up here is deep and requires fatties. It seems the lodge population here at Valhalla Mountain Touring has quite a quiver of skis and boards, most of the wider persuasion. Check them out.
Here’s the list, fat skis and Dynafits dominate:
K2 Coomback + Dynafit (Coomback should get more awards.)
2x K2 Gotback + Dynafit (Coomback for women, it should get more awards.)
2x Prior Husume + Dynafit
3x Dynafit Manaslu + Dynafit (A bit skinny for around here, but getting used.)
Black Diamond Megawatt + Dynafit (These are the program.)
Black Diamond Justice + Dynafit (Perfect for Selkirk human powered.)
Dynastar Cham 107 + Plum (They do look pretty.)
Dynastar Cham 127 + Atomic Tracker (brought along for resistance training)
Volkl Nunataq + Dynafit (Full rocker to the foot, perfect.)
DPS Wailer 99 + Dynafit (Lou’s says the tingle runs up his legs.)
4Frnt Hoji + Dynafit (Hip.)
2x Nordica La Nina + Marker Tour (We can only ask, why?)
Volkl Gotama + Marker Duke (Classic.)
K2 Obsethed + Alpine Bindings (The snow cat awaits.)
Jones Women’s Solution + Karakorum (Snowboards. Perfect for this place.)
Burton Freebird + Spark R&D
Burton S-series + Spark R&D
Meanwhile, Mt. Baker is busy racking up 98 inches since Sunday. I think it’s going to be a good season. Oh, can’t forget, if you’re looking for the folks who run our lodge here at Valhalla, this be the link.
