the weather sucks in the PNW!
I think I have some really good pictures of you skiing up there. Do you want them for your trip report?
I've also got a lot of video of snow.

Nice attitude Zach, unless you are holding back. F'ing Chris Davenport stole all the sunny windows. I still can't believe the guy waltzed in to town with 17 volcanoes to ski and the skies parted like Moses and the Red Sea for 14 days straight.

Anyways, I can see why you love Adams so much. Seems like it was worth the effort and the wait.

Craig, I would like to see those pictures, if you can post them on facebook or e-mail them to me. The weather does suck in the PNW. I do not think I could ever live there full-time but I will keep on visiting those badass mountains. Baker, Shuksun, Garibaldi next year maybe?

Brian, yeah I cannot believe the great weather Davenport had. He is a badass but I think luck also played a factor in the kind of unbelievable success he had out there. 2 weeks of sunshine in early May in the Cascades, how does that happen? Oh well, I held back a little, there were times that were a bit frustrating out there, but we made the most of it and when the chutes came together it all became worth it.
