Splitboarding Rabbit Ears Pass 1/16/17

We had a fantastic time with Omer Mei-Dan from Boulder this week on Monday. We left Steamboat bright and early at 7 a.m. to ensure we were riding the goods. We arrived at the West Summit of Rabbit Ears Pass just past sunrise.

IT WAS BEAUTIFUL!

Once we toured to the back bowl we were able to get some nice turns in.

After shredding the back bowl we toured up to the knoll for some awesome tree skiing.

 Just another beautiful day in Steamboat Springs, CO.

After getting 6 runs in and close to 1000 ft of vertical we decided to venture off into the pillow zone. We were able to ride some awesome pillow lines between the east and west bowls.
