Backcountry Powder - short movie

Thacher Skiing the Backcountry at Mt. Pinos from Brian Pidduck on Vimeo.

I took 2 students from The Thacher School up to Mt. Pinos to ski after a recent storm blew through Southern California (February 25-26th). We found some pretty good powder on the northern aspects. This trip was a day trip from Ojai: departed at 6:20 AM, back by 7:00 PM. If it hadn't been for an accident, and traffic, in Frazier Park, we may have been able to get to the beach to catch a few waves before sunset! Not a bad day for Southern California.
