Splitboarding / Stories / Trip Reports

After getting some beta that there was still pow stashes left in Bennett’s Pass, Jeff and Jenny Snyder and myself took a short skin in to check things out on 1/1. What we found was snow depth still too thin for good tree runs but 2 to 3 feet of fresh powder in the clearings a little farther in.

Hoping to find some protected stashes of snow in the Salmon River Canyon, on 1/3 we skinned up to around 6,900 and worked our way down to the White River Canyon snow park around 4,250′ . From the recent strong wings, mostly everything has turned to a hard snow and ice pack mixed with 6″ to 2′ sastrugi. Even tho most of the trip was type 2 fun, we still had a blast finding what pockets of good snow we did and taking in the beautiful views.
