Two Peas and Their Pod: February 2008

Thursday, February 21, 2008


A Splitboard is a snow board that basically turns into Telemark ski's. You put "skins" on the bottom of the ski's and they let you climb up pretty steep hills with out sliding backwards. They get their name because people used to use seal skins. They are smooth if going one direction and grab the other direction. It is pretty awesome to access a ton of back country! This day the hike was great the snowboarding was terrible. It was like snowboarding on cardboard then we had about 50-70 MPH winds with blowing snow so the North face which would have been the faces to snowboard were very wind loaded and sluffing so they were high danger areas so we just boarded back to our car. I put a video above showing me hiking with the board split. When it is together it looks like a normal board. We saw a couple of Moose and about five mountain goats. The backcountry is beautiful and even more serene in the winter. We were in between Big Cottonwood Canyon and Millcreek Canyon. Near the Wasatch Crest trail.

Super Sunday!

The Weekend of Superbowl Sunday we had a great suprise, Ben and Whitney came to visit. We all love the Dewey's so much it is a tradition when Ben and Whit are here go visit the Dewey's and Gram. They always welcome us in their home and treat us like we are there own. We really love them. So we spent Saturday night with the Dewey's and stayed all day Sunday and had a great time getting snowed in and making Macaroons. Oh yeah, did I mention we watched the worst Superbowl in the history of Superbowls, but it did not put a damper on our good times though. It was the best day ever!
