Brendon Drury & Mike Burton Hit the Tahoe Backcountry

Our buddy Brendon Drury sent us a little write up and some photos from a new backcountry zone they hit in Tahoe last week. Looks pretty epic.

Tahoe has been off the hook lately with unreal amounts of snowfall and good weather. We decided to head to this new zone we had always wanted to check out over the years. It was on, with Mike Burton, Ben Meester and myself. Ben was stoked to shoot photos, while Mike and I were excited to ride the good snow.

Not knowing exactly what we would stumble upon, we headed out and within the hour found an epic little zone with spines, drops and good snow. We decided to hit this up and get what we could with the light we had. The snow was so good with sick natural terrain.

After that spot, we headed deeper in search of other spots and found good stuff for another day. Darkness crept on us super quick and we had to headlamp out of there. Here are some photos from the day. Super fun times!
