Red Slate Couloir - Select (Feb 12) : Red Slate Couloir on Feb 12th, 2006.  Not the most ideal conditions, but had a blast..we were stoked to actually be able to ski it, and even more stoked when we were out of there.  Couldn't belive that it was Feb...more like May conditions.

Waterhouse Peak Virgin Ascent. w/Lou and Nick (Dec 29) : After doing Mt. Dade the day before, we were headed to Kirkwood for a nice mellow day...when we noticed that we were blacked out for the day.  So we turned around and headed for Waterhouse peak.  Hear about it, seen it, but didn't expect anything so nice.  

There are some movies towards the end.

Lassen w/Timmy and Nick (Dec 2) : First Day of Backcountry this season (2005-06).  Headed up to Lassen with Durbo and Miley.  Snow was a bit windpacked, and we were on brand new gear, but had a great time on a beautiful day.
