Where will you spend your winter?

It is always interesting to see where and how buzzards spend their winters..

I get in 2/3 of my days in the BC but when I am at a resort it will be the Monarch pass again this year also re-upped my Aspen 4 pack. Have trips planned to the Butte, Durango, Glenwood, South fork, Jackson/Alpine, and Silverton. I also hope to get some quality time in a few new found local zones around here.

The sled bed makes it easy bringing the sleds for some BC goodness. My sled for this year will be a new polaris 800 pro. Hope to get out at least once with the Monarch cat boys - always a good time. Add in a couple of multi-day exploration trips as well as a night or two over at the Taylor Park Trading Post cabins and it should make for a good winter!

Lib-Tech will still be my board of choice as I will be startin the year on the rice 165 with brton boots/bindings.

So where will the rest of you buzzards be spending your winter?

As usual I will spend most of my time either at Monarch, in the Monarch Pass backcountry or skiing Cottonwood, Independence and Fremont. Planning on another 3 day weekend at Silverton skiing the mountain and the backcountry...hoping New Mexico keeps getting snow...want to explore Taos and Pajarito...and if not I will be heading to Wyoming for a quick tour of the goods. Hopeful that this might be the winter I make it to Revelstoke...but that is still $ dependent. Still skiing the same 2 setups...K2 Fujatives and K2 Pistepipes...alpine and tele respectively.

Looking forward to more summits and new lines...come on snow!!

I'll be down here in sunny Key West Florida sailing, SUPing, diving and sea kayaking. Don't have a snow machine, but I do have a sweet 86 ft. wooden schooner to play on every day as well as miles of smooth water to paddle out to empty islands to drink beer. Temps between 65 and 80. I'm not sure you snow buzzards have this winter thing figured out yet.......

150 days 'til high water boys and girls.....SYOTR around May 1st...

Nice, simple man !!!! I would guess that your " boat" requires a lot of maintaince, but what a great place to do a little " work"

Glad to hear Balto is still running!
Ya, that TG base...same story in UT... if I still lived in Alta, I would be climbing my favorite ridge on Mt Superior, get on belay with however much rope I feel like carrying (80' 7mil at least), and bootpack out the entire starting zone of a couple of my favorite chutes. "Vert snowshoe-pack" actually; less wallowing than bootpacking, and it still impacts the whole snowpack, when its shallow like now.
