Good job cutting from 2hrs to 10 minutes, I know how hard that can be as an amateur GoPro/YouTuber myself. With a bit of creativity you'll catch more angles and other subjects without feeling like you are reducing the run times... though I must say leaving the GoPro at home the last year or two has led to some awesome "in the moment" runs.

Thanks for the input. I knew making the video that is was going to be long but I couldn't decide what to cut down( i did cut it down from over 2 hours of footage). I would like to get more angles and other people but we couldnt slow down from making laps in the fresh powder. I make these ore as memories for myself but like to share if anyone is interested.

Ice & Winter Climbing / Beacon Falls
« Last post by Nigel Modern on January 29, 2015, 02:07:20 PM »
Hi,

I'm a UK winter and Alpine climber - climb up to AD or winter II-III

I'm visiting Ct and want to take my son-in-law up something easy-ish and reachable for a day trip from the Middletown area.

Beacon Falls or Haddam sound good. Anyone know how they are and how to access?

Great conditions! Some vid advice (I know unsolicited), follow some of your friends and shoot them... give the cam to one of those 8 friends and have them stationary while you ride by....  10 minutes of the same angle is about 9:30 to much. Cool music though, thx for sharing.

New arrival at my local beer store, Green Head IPA from Newburyport Brewing Co. 7.2% "assertive & hoppy west-coast style IPA".... I'm digging it.

Ice & Winter Climbing / Re: Winter Alpine Routes out West!

In Colorado - Torrey's Peak - Keslo Ridge.

Easy access for a 14'er in winter. Not real technically challenging but a fun winter day out. I did it way back in the late 80's. Really enjoyed it!

With that said, it did have an avy fatality just this year. So the approach to the ridge is bit dodgy in the wrong conditions. My buddy from colrado who's lived there his whole life doesn't remember any other avy fatalities on the route.

Ice & Winter Climbing / Winter Alpine Routes out West!
« Last post by lothianhimself on January 29, 2015, 10:04:18 AM »
Soliciting Ideas for a winter alpine climbing objective out west. WI 2 or 3, steep snow, easy rock. Ridges preferred to couloirs to avoid avalanche terrain.
Preferably avoiding avalanche terrain.

Thanks!

Long video, watch it if you want, watch part of it, watch none f it, but here it is. Great day, great conditions, and maybe 50 people on the mountain. 8 of those were friends.
