cbalke I've been eyeing this old roll of film that's been laying around. I finally had it developed (which no one does anymore) and realized it was from about 14 years ago. We had rented a cabin in Tahoe and were sessioning a rail on a snowskate. How time flys by... 1mon

cbalke As soon as I saw the clouds hanging over Mt Diablo and the lighting I knew I had to head here to snap a few shots. 1mon
  •   miguelgrandes Nice to see it with water 1mon
  •   domvallee Beauty shot! 1mon
  •   cbalke @miguelgrandes seriously. I was surprised there was this much. 1mon
  •   cbalke @domvallee Thankyou!! The contrast and color was really good today. Glad to see you've been scoring some pow. 1mon
  •   miguelgrandes Yeah I've been wantin to go out there but it's kind of a far drive for me when I wasn't really sure if there was water...maybe I'll head out there soon 1mon

cbalke A couple months back we had a blast racing across the desert to spend the night in the Ruby's and ride TC couloir. Here's a quick video of the ride down TC Couloir. #tc #couloir #rubymountains #splitboarding #splitboard 1mon

cbalke Took a few laps on #TamarackPeak last week and scored better conditions then I expected. @furbergsnowboards 1mon
  •   cbalke @nadiya_sheckler seriously, just like the PNW its really bare in Tahoe. Two more resorts just closed for the season. 1mon
  •   cbalke @sdmarkus thanks man! I can't believe @chrisgallardo did it by himself all these years.. 1mon
  •   cbalke @jenario yeah you do. It's a Furberg. It has a large radius side cut design so it looks way different. Excited to get some more days on it. 1mon
  •   chrisgallardo thanks @cbalke 1mon
  •   tracie_k Praise Jesus 1mon
  •   deeboskim @cbalke right now I've got either Wednesday or Thursday afternoons through Sunday mornings off. Weird schedule I know, but I work 12hr graveyard shifts. 1mon
  •   cbalke Hmm.. I'm the same but have Mon-Wed off. @deeboskim 1mon

cbalke Parking lot camping in the Rubys's last Friday night. The accommodations included cold weather, a bonfire, beer and being woken up by someone swinging doughnuts 50 yards from your tent. 3mon
  •   cbalke @ride_it_sideways you just made it weird.. Haha 3mon
  •   cbalke @shrdnar we can deal with that casualty. Better than the time our beers floated down stream during the hail storm. 3mon
  •   shrdnar Oh yeah definitely. A loss of a beer is a tragedy. That was an epic storm though! 3mon
  •   mattcllns How was the coverage out there? Any rocks poking out on the chute? 3mon
  •   cbalke @mattcllns Nope, coverage was perfect. The approach after the creek crossing could have used more snow though. 3mon
  •   jcizzler Yeah, only been off a few days @cbalke 3mon
  •   logs_and_pow Looks fun :) 3mon
  •   cbalke @logs_and_pow it was a great trip 3mon

cbalke @shrdnar about to drop the couloir. His custom @ozsnowboards "split licker" is hilarious. 3mon

cbalke So pumped that we made the trek out there. This and the views made it all worth it. POV shot of the ride through the narrows. 3mon

cbalke Walled in. This is the most picturesque couloir I have seen. We caught it in good conditions and you can see @shrdnar is all smiles about booting up the almost 2000 feet. While climbing I couldn't help but think about @snowvols incident here last season. 3mon

cbalke The mediocre conditions in the Sierra has been a motivator to do a little more traveling. @shrdnar , Ryan and I headed out to the Ruby Mountains to play tourist and ride Terminal Cancer. The slice at the center of the image. It's funny how distance changes the perception of width and pitch. 3mon

cbalke Kyle Hot Springs near Mill City NV. Trekked all the way out there yesterday to find that someone broke holes in the soaking tub. We were still treated to great views that reminded me of the Eastern Sierra. 3mon

cbalke 1/4/15 Castle Peak - Still some decent snow holding if you look for it. With the lack of storms in the forecast we will have to make the most of what we got. 4mon
  •   cbalke @hallalyssa_17 things could still turn around for us snow wise Feb -April. Rain and waterside is another story though.. 4mon
  •   hallalyssa_17 I hope so we had one good storm that gave us 30" and haven't gotten anything since and its melting coverage sucked this weekend hella sketchy. I'm hoping we get a storm later this month or early feb. We wanna make a trip to sierra at Tahoe if it's better over there 4mon
  •   rachelmcphotos 4mon
  •   jlwxthomas Beautiful 4mon
  •   bjanhunen Nice how was it up there yesterday? 4mon
  •   cbalke @rachelmcphotos thanks so much!! 4mon
  •   cbalke @jlwxthomas the picture didn't do it justice. Thanks! 4mon
  •   cbalke @bjanhunen great weather, warm and no wind. The ridge was icy but there was still some good snow. Can't complain about being in the mountains. 4mon
