    Razorback and Dargo Bowl Pics

    Took the Wednsday off and went to the snow with Jaywoo. We parked at Diamantina and walked over the top to drop into Dargo bowl for a couple of runs. Snow was a mix of light and fluffy and ice.

    Next we dropped off the rd near the cross and took the ridge down and left to the bottom of the Dipper and climbed up onto the Razorback. Spent the next couple of hours working our way back to the rd. Nice snow, almost corn on the N and E facing slopes.

    Then we did 2 runs by walking back up the rd 2 corners and dropping back into the creek through some tightish trees. Then we collapsed.

    Pics bellow.

    Here's one of Sidetrack that I took. Notice the fresh tracks left behind [​IMG]

    At the bottom of the Razorback after the "Exploratory" drop. It was pot luck that we found a line of snow all the way to the bottom. Defiantly worth trying next year when there is more snow again...

    We couldnt believe it when we made it to the creek. I was thinking that we would have trouble getting out of our boards and then this ribbon of snow shoots us out onto this nice little flat [​IMG]
