oceanmang 3.1.15 So grateful to be back in the San Juans with the Tride crew during a truly special snow cycle Yesterday were the best conditions I've ever skied on this mountain. Tomorrow is shaping up as well, with dropping temperatures and heavy precipitation #hugapatroller #sanjuanclamchowder #blowchunks #onamissionfromgod #tomorrowweride 4h

oceanmang 2.22.15 Meadow skipping is fun! This picture from last week is getting me stoked for riding fresh pow tomorrow in Telluride Just got into my friend's charming A-frame at 9,700' in Ophir, Colorado after a 10 hour drive. FULL ON blizzard ️ conditions up here where I had to rally over dozens of 2'-3' wind drifts just to get to the driveway. I feel so content, decompressing around a wood burning stove with old friends and beer, listening to the wind and snow nearly blow down the house #positivevibewarriors #tomorrowweride #fearandloathinginthesanjuans 2d

oceanmang 2.21.15 Welcome back winter! Such a killer day kicking off the @jhpowwow a little early with some ridiculously fun @gentemstick shapes. If this is any indication of things to come, our snowboard community is in for some deep pow, high fives and fun sessions this week at the #jhpowwow ️ Big up to @yoderyoder and @domichiaki for the stoke today and @jacksonhole for hosting such a righteous gathering. Snowsurfing is alive and well here in the Tetons! #positivevibewarriors #bigsaturday #thetaoofwood #cowboypowder #teamsameteam #pursuitofchowda #stokeembodied #thewuwei #morenoselesstail #finsout #wypy #tittybumps #yukisan #outerwearfarts #blowchunks #zencowboys #safetymeetings #funhogging #dachowdagood #gwehh #fearandloathinginwyoming #slowisswiftandswiftisfast 1w

oceanmang 2.5.15 Another shot from yesterday of my partner making the final push for the summit. There's no other person I trust more out in the backcountry and I'm stoked to share each and every tour with this righteous dude... Forever grateful to find dry powder in the middle of a very strange season where rain and warm temperatures have dominated the entire west coast of North America #bootedandfed #gwehh #cowboypowder #pursuitofchowda #trenchtown #stokefueled #funhogging #zencowboys #centrifugal #powsniffer #teamsameteam #becauseitsthere #NOTjapan #wypy #theyonlylivetogetradical #outerwearfarts #positivevibewarriors #safetymeetings #dachowdagood #fluffstravels #pleasedontfuckupmychi #outdooractivities #youhaveonelifeliveit 3w

oceanmang 2.5.15 Best of days chasing dry powder high up! 47degrees in town but cold and dark if you look in the strangest of places if you look at them right ;) Watch out for sporty wind slabs, especially on south facing aspects where a pencil hard 2" sun crusts has become a perfect bed surface #couloirhunting #praisejar #theyonlylivetogetradical #wypy #neverbethesuit #bigthursday #centrifugal #cocainecowboys #powsniffer #troutsniffer #linesforbreakfast #freerange #pantherblood #tittybumps #stokeembodied #dachowdagood #outerwearfarts #pursuitofchowda #bigdickcouloirheaven #positivevibewarriors #safetymeetings #pleasedontfuckupmychi #couloirhunting #outdooractivities 4w

oceanmang Stacking up at work... Welcome back winter! Sooo happy to spend my civilized side/human activities (work) at 9,100' where I can acclimate and get paid at the same time Looking out at this playground always brings a smile to my face and some stoke to the air #NOTjapan #highcountrystellar #mellowmood #trenchtown #powsniffer #jhmr #yukisan #unadulterated #tittybumps #outdooractivities #pantherblood #allfunk #sideboob #dachowdagood #finsout #teamsameteam #pursuitofchowda #neverbethesuit #bigwednesday #cowboypowder #tetonresidue #positivevibewarriors #funhogging #hugapatroller #tranquilandserene #pleasedontfuckupmychi #bigdickpowderheaven #chasingstrange 4w

oceanmang January (AKA Junuary) Beta:

The Tetons saw record warmth (including inversions), slightly above average SWE (w/ below average snowfall) and three surface hoar cycles which would plaque our pack with a persistent problem for the majority of the month.
Warm temps would round/settle the pack (for the most part ), bringing closure to a funky month in the Tetons where the fishing was great, the skiing was hit or miss and the snowpack SPICEY.
Currently we have begun February in a similar pattern with a 26" cycle of heavy snow up top and 3"+ rain at my house. Cross your fingers that the buried hoar layers continue to round/settle and that we don't pick up any new surface hoar.. Since when did I move to the PNW?! #teamsameteam #AvalancheAwareness #slowisswiftandswiftisfast

oceanmang 1.18.2015 Yours truly finding #thefullnessofthevoid. This is what happens when you bring a photog or two out with you gear testing: you get the shot! Great tour over the weekend amongst @hal_v_shun @ryandunfee85 and @naterossphoto. With a touchy snowpack plaqued with surface hoar, crusts and fresh upside snow, the mountains deserved much respect if we wanted to play safe. Our group had to practice excellent communication and terrain management. All of this can be tough when cameras are out and I think we did a fine job of self-awareness and self-restraint! #nevertrustahoar #tubetime #offshore #overhead #pumping #trippleoverhead #haolelife #thewuwei #thewuwei #teamsameteam #bigdickpowderheaven #cowboypowder #letitride #hugapatroller #dachowdagood #finsout #wyo22 #wydaho #funhogging #safetymeetings #fearandloathinginthetetons #outerwearfarts #trenchtown #wypy #positivevibewarriors #tetonresidue #pleasedontfuckupmychi #tetontested 1mon

oceanmang 1.15.15 With my last three birthdays spent in the park it was good to mix it up yesterday and go for a tram assisted tour south of the village. Here's @clarkoid328 booting coulies and taking names on a line I've had my eye on for some time now. Grateful to have a birthday tour with such good company on such a gorgeous day in the backyard! #bootedandfed #couloirhunting #gwehh #cocainecowboys #tittybumps #mounttetonbuttholesurfclub #becauseitsthere #powsniffer #cowboypowder #teamsameteam #chasingstrange #positivevibewarriors #letitride #tetonresidue #wypy #youhaveonelifeliveit #pleasedontfuckupmychi #outerwearfarts #hippiesagainstmonsanto #nipplechafe #funhogging #dachowdagood #safetymeetings #fearandloathinginthetetons #simplepleasures #frothingimminent 2mon

oceanmang 1.8.15 CORN skiing in January?! Does it go? Of course it goes but from this angle it's hard to tell ;) @lguillaumeteton sizing up the steep and narrows half way down this pristine couloir which provided 1,500' of perfect corn snow #todayinthetetons #bigdickcouloirheaven #fearandloathinginthetetons #positivevibewarriors #thewuwei #outerwearfarts #youhaveonelifeliveit #pleasedontfuckupmychi #tittybumps #wypy #allfunk #spreadthestoke #teamsameteam #dachowdagood #funhogging #gwehh #lifepro #zencowboys #frothingimminent #chasingstrange #becauseitsthere @francosnowshapes 🌲 2mon
