Going Big at SkiBowl

For the past few months the Northwest has gotten pounded by snow and I've tried to step up my skiing because of it.  With more snow I've been trying out bigger drops and steeper lines in the backcountry of SkiBowl.  I've also ordered some backcountry ski gear so that I can skin into areas unreachable from the ski resorts to further push my love of the sport.  Here are a few shots and lines I've been hitting at SkiBowl this winter.  The top photo shows the drop I'm hitting in the photo below it ~25-30ft.   Middle photo shows another view of the same drop on the left as well as a steep chute that Hartz and I skied on the right with Emily filming from below.  The bottom photos are other drops around the Ski Bowl resort.  It is by far my favorite mountain and has the best technical terrain I've skied in the Northwest thus far.
