After two consecutive weekends of awesome splitboarding, Drew, Andrew and I were stoked to get out on Friday 1/08. Clear sky's were forecasted, and after a few days of relatively stagnant weather we were optimistic for good stability. All week we were scheming of riding a couple chutes on Broken Top but, on the way over to Bend we made an impulsive decision to camp at Hoodoo and attempt a day on Three Finger Jack.
We got up at 5:00am the next day, and were on the trail by 6:00. After three hours of hiking we were finally gaining the ridge line of TFJ's SE bowl.
Rockstar views in Central Oregon.
Peaking into the SE bowl, conditions looked great, powdery. We wasted no time and dropped.

Yeah, the snow was great.
TFJ, Mt. Jefferson, and no other humans in sight.
We went up for another, Drew shredding.
Muller, two planking.
After 2 runs we were tired, and time to go home. Up the skin track one more time.
Then it was down the south bowl (which was powder too) and split ski tele turns all the way home!
