I was able to tear my self away from school to partake in the epic storm cycle that the Baker area has been enjoying the past week. The avalanche danger was vicious, so we stuck to the trees and pillows. One of the many reasons I decided to move to the Pacific Northwest for school was legends of endless pillow lines. Saturday I lived the dream. We didn’t get any pictures that involved turning, and I think I’m okay with that. Enjoy.
