This weekend was a good one for sure. Unfortunately our crew was a little split up, but we still had a great time and took advantage the snow that the northwest storm systems decided to dump on us. We got a dusting on Friday night; maybe 4 inches of new snow overnight. Saturday was awesome, needless to say. I met up with a Mission Ridge skier named Thomas and a semi-local chick named Rachel. Both of them killed it! I rarely see girls who charge as hard as Rachel does, and Thomas is just a chill dude all around. The three of us met up at around 12:30 PM in the Cambell Basin lodge and got hyphy all over the natural terrain. Crystal is a great place to be, with lots of pillows and fun drops to be had. Unfortunately (or maybe it was fortunate), we were having so much fun that we forgot to pull out the camera for most of the day.However, Rachel got a shot or two of Thomas and me on the last run on on the cliffs featured in the Mobb Steep December edit. Switch hits, flips, and pretty fun tricks. Hope to shred with you guys again, fo sho.
After Rachel and Thomas left, I met up with Shane, Lloyd, and our brosephers Sterling and Scotty at the Hut. After several failed attempts to build a fire and jib the backcountry rail setup we have, we decided to focus on fixing up the recently caved in roof. It is now in pretty much full working order and life is good!
Sunday was absolutely stellar. Deep powder all day. Just an awesome time all around. I will be in Whistler next weekend, but Patrick will be back from Florida with his camera so more Mobb Steep footy and an edit will be dropped at the end of the month. Gettin’ hyphy.
Peace, Matt Fry
