    Eagle Valley/Sicamous Conditions 2121-2022

    Haven't been up recently but the snow line came way down, with more snow on the way for the weekend. I'm thinking it's gonna be good.

    3d printer.

    Yep I dabble in 3d printing. Mostly functional prints and for repairing stuff. I use fusion 360 for CAD and PETG plastic for higher strength/melting point than PLA. Here is a finger throttle that I've been running for years now. Worked so well I put one on my new sled too.

    Dust on crust, maybe 6" or so by Sunday. I hope I'm wrong and this storm over-delivers. More coming next week though

    Eagle Valley/Sicamous Conditions 2121-2022

    It's snowing pretty good here right now, should get a decent reset over the weekend. Monday and beyond looks like it's clearing, with cold temps. Probably going to be some of the best riding around here all season! https://www.snow-forecast.com/resorts/K3Catski/6day/mid

    Eagle Valley/Sicamous Conditions 2121-2022

    North facing aspects had good quality snow yesterday. Tree riding was great! Soft enough to stay on edge, hero enough to tractor around. Trail in was good too, no complaints. Of course, this wasn't owl - you need to have a few personal secret stashes on owl if you expect to ride fresh after a...

    New Avy Pack - Recommendations?

    In theory, yes. I've never heard of or had any real-world problems though. As stated above, an inline desiccant is used, also I make sure to pump it up in the same room as my wood stove, it's about 20% humidity most of time. I paid $60 or so for the pump, and it works great for recharging the...

    New Avy Pack - Recommendations?

    +1 for BCA. You can just buy an air pump and pump up your own cylinders at home too.

    Lets talk protective gear!

    ^ I also wear the EVS TP199 knee/shin guards. I used to have bruised knees after every ride from slamming forward during small hits and jumps. They are soft enough that you don't notice them, and they dont rip your nice goretex pants too! Peeling them off at the end of the day is the only downside.

    Owlhead on boxing day: Bitter cold, trail from the connector to cabin is ungroomed and whooped out, but oh so worth it. Sunny up top, cold smoke and fresh tracks all day! Ps. Snow above cabin elevation is safe to dip into, anything below, well, a-arms beware.

    Eagle Valley/Sicamous Conditions 2121-2022

    Rode blue yesterday, trailers were parking at the bottom, some trucks parked at 2k, a couple at 6k where the cat was parked. Snow the whole way but 6k and below was pretty thin with alot of rocks and gravel. Ridge top is wind hammered, tree riding was excellent. 1-2 feet over the crust, alot of...

    A better VHF radio

    Thanks! How close to the actual frequencies do you need to be for a test? All the work stuff is between 160-170 mhz, sledding down around 150. Maybe just try 165.0 and 150.0?

    A better VHF radio

    X-it how did that folding antenna work out? The flat ribbon looking one. I've always liked the idea but not sure how they perform, as they seem like a military-wannabe thing. I've had great success with retevis as well, no measured data but brought it to work this year and side by side with...
