February 15th and 16th saw the return of the Harvey vs. Moore clans who spent a total of three days with Selkirk Powder Company, cat skiing on the backside of Schweitzer Mountain Idaho. These crazy kids have been with us for quite a few years and it has been our pleasure to yet again bring them everything that the north Idaho backcountry has to offer including powpow, sunshine, snow storms, open bowls, and of course hidden cold smoke in the tight and magical northern facing trees! We focused on those trees this trip with the gang pushing some to get the experience of a life time! I even found new terrain myself this trip in my 5th year guiding with Selkirk Powder Company! Stoked! Awesome pillow drops and randomly open steep zones hidden among the trees! Yah baby!
We saw the look alike skiers El Jeffe and El Grego making sweet turns until El Grego set himself apart by leaving an iphone 5 somewhere at the bottom a sweetly steep zone. Of course we had to go back and ping it, aka ski it again and try to find it. I've heard this a thousand times before of course but this time a phone really was MIA so shoot, we had to do it again. One of the best runs of the day, times two also yielded said iphone! Double score!
This is just one example of how the Harvey vs. Moore Clans keep things interesting out there and we can't thank them enough for spending their hard earned time with us each year!
Till next year my friends! Keep both skis on the same side of the tree!
