Important notice - Major update coming on June 1st. Please read carefully.
When traveling to a complex snowpack I try to connect with knowledgable locals. Often times I start trips out by hiring the best local guide I can in order to get a crash course in the snowpack. Thankfully while in Colorado earlier in the week I was able to hook up with @krakauernotwriting. There are few people I trust in the mountains more then him. We had no plans to ride this line do to the avalanche conditions. We had a wonderful day cruising low angle rolling fields of powder. #frontrange #winterwonderland

I don't know is a forth edition of the Deeper series based on Avalanche Safety would have market appeal. But it is worth noting that all the TGR and Jones athletes and production teams participate in a guide level Pro Rider workshop each year. This course allows everyone to practice existing backcountry skills and build on their knowledge base. In the end we are all responsible for keeping our backcountry travels skills on par with our goals. The bigger you go, the more you need to know!
@superfriend143 never said anyone would watch it... But people are still dying trying to ride pow. Cheers.
@jonessnowboards @chesshireb amen!
