late season MT pow

After one of the worst snowfall season I can remember here in MT mixed with the worst avalanche conditions in 15 plus years or ever winter finally came to Montana the first two weeks of may. We spent about 12 days in the infamous snowboard/snowmobile spot Cooke City for the storms and got a lot of snowboarding in. Started with sketchy avy conditions, but eventually turned into the best snowpack i saw all season if not ever. fun jumps and fun lines. Enjoy some photos thanks to http://www.ryankirkphotography.com/ go check it out. some video will be coming soon.

Dangerzone Season 2 Episode 19 – “The Pow”

Perfect end to an epic winter...

By Brett Butcher

During any other year, April 29th in Tahoe would be all about sunny park days, hanging out at the lake and grilling up some steaks. This was not your typical Tahoe April. We got hit with multiple storms and this one dropped 25 inches of the goods. We woke up on Thursday to blue skies, no wind and allot of snow. Kyle Miller, Josh Parker, Nick Visconti, Tim Bradley and myself headed out to ASI and took full advantage of this opportunity.

We like to call this the backyard...

Parker checking out potential lines...

Miller's first run of the day... popping off a spine

Tim Bradley documenting it all...

Nick Visconti executes the best move in boarding...

I was walking along a ridge and found a nice hole. When temperatures warm up cornices start to pull apart creating giant cracks in the snow. If it snows over them it can create a potentially dangerous situation. You cannot see the cracks and if you step in the wrong spot they can eat you alive.

I got lucky... a few more feet to the right and I would have gone for a ride

Kyle Miller

After we exhausted all our options in the backyard we packed up and headed through the ASI tunnels to the old Forum jump...

Nick and Kyle checking it out...

Miller dropped a hammer with this first track front 540.

This was my last day in Tahoe before heading up to Oregon and it could not have been any better. Powder day with some of my best friends in late April. It was the perfect end to an epic winter.
