  •   cbalke @bryman78 we need to link up still. I'll be up for a week in March. Let's plan something then. 6d
  •   cbalke @pallassnowboards we are too. It's been so good having snow after the last few seasons. I'm partially hooked on these zones down to the lake since they haven't gone the last couple years. 6d
  •   bryman78 @cbalke for sure looked like you poached my zone this weekend lol 6d
  •   cbalke @bryman78 haha.. I couldn't see much of it but Incline Peak is a cool high elevation zone. I don't get to the Rose area often. 6d

cbalke Conditions were unreal yesterday and it sounds like it was much of the same today. Unbeatable weather, snow, views, and times! : @cwjohnston80 @furbergsnowboards @sparkrandd @patagonia_snow 1mon
  •   cbalke @jpbakers yesterday wasn't the best test for waterproofing but it stood up to snow sitting between by pack and my back. I'll try to shoot you some more info after more use. 1mon
  •   jpbakers Yeah it's been very light here too it's awesome. Well thanks again man I really do appreciate it. I run so damn hot when I tour I might just get the refugitive cause I'd probably end up taking the recon off anyways haha. 1mon
  •   hukesnow I don't know if there's a better view in snowboarding! 1mon
  •   splitboard_com @hukesnow maybe Norway. @niklashollsten & @hollstelina catch some sweet views. 1mon

cbalke Gorgeous day in the mountains yesterday, and we still found some powish turns. While we didn't get as many turns as we wanted, we did spend some time scoping some new terrain. 3mon
  •   coon____ Yeaaah boy. It filling in there? 3mon
  •   shelly_hikernut Never a bad day in the mountains 3mon
  •   cbalke @oceanmang Sweet Ian!! Looking forward to seeing what you get into. I hope to keep it steady this season. 3mon
  •   cbalke @coon____ what up man!! It is and it isn't.. The sun and wind have definitely burnt up and scoured some aspects. Finding less sharks than last week but It's still pretty bony down low. 3mon
  •   cbalke @shelly_hikernut totally! 3mon
  •   coon____ Well its a good start. Where's this at? 3mon
  •   cbalke @cbalke across the Hwy from Round Top. 3mon

cbalke Kicking off the 15/16 season in Tahoe today included technical route finding, smoothing rocks with ptex and falling through manzanita. Conditions were better than expected once you got enough elevation. It'll be ON after the next storm. 3mon

cbalke Autumn was in full swing in the Eastern Sierra. A couple more weeks and this view will only get better. Quite a few dirt bikers like the one in this shot were getting after it. We even saw a guy and his girl riding doubles on an Enduro. She didn't sound too thrilled when we told them the road was pretty rough and rocky. 4mon

cbalke We found some nice goldies in the stream between upper and lower Laurel lake. By the end of the day @christianpaul and @ride_it_sideways both wished they had a chest pack with improvised beer holder. : @christianpaul 4mon

cbalke With the core of the Milky Way only being visible for a few more weeks, I took a late night trip down to Pigeon Point Light House. The Lighthouse is regarded as one of the most picturesque on the pacific coast and was named after the ship the Pigeon Carrier which wrecked there in 1853. 5mon
  •   cbalke @bridgetj522 pretty amazing to think we are just one sparkle in the sky. 5mon
  •   cbalke @nellygranzella of course it's mine. I'm a cornucopia of tidbits, when I can remember them.. 5mon
  •   chuckdeezmt Sweet 5mon
  •   cbalke @chuckdeezmt thanks Chuck! Wish I would have done a little longer exposure ringer the color to pop more though. Next time.. 5mon

  •   cbalke @niklashollsten Thanks Niklas! You guys ready for winter? 5mon

cbalke Watching cars carve their way down Lombard Street. The 8 #hairpin turns were first proposed by property owner Carl Henry and built in 1922 to make the hills 27% grade manageable for vehicles. 5mon
