Lines by Michael Wier
Just wanted to share a few photos of some lines. If i have a fun one i like to sometimes take a photo if i have my camera. These are some of my favorite places around where i grew up off HWY 88. Bro Bowl, Wier Bowl, Lost Lakes, Mini AK, 4th of July. Some are hike spots some are a perfect snow mo shuttle. Haven’t been able to ride as much this season as i usually do. Been busy being responsible and getting stuff done. Doesn’t mean i haven’t made it out for the best days. With limited time i head to my favorite lines and just try to ride them with precision. Been riding some of these lines for years.
Most of our hills around this part of the Sierra’s are pretty short. You get a couple steep turns then a drop or shoot and run out. My favorite lines are the ones you can ride like a wave. Like the first shot: Air drop, set up turn, barrel (chute), Shoulder slash then exit. Nothing beast the feel of Lib-Tech’s skate banana in the pow and nothing keeps me more comfortable and dry then my Patagonia Rubicon Rider Jacket. Good times!!
Also wanted to share this shot that Corey Rich took last season. He posted it on his blog because it won a photo contest. Corey was hanging out of the heli to get this angle.

Hope everyone is doing well. Hope this gets you stoked to get away from the resorts, explore the backcountry and slash some turns.
