Team Cohen soon lucks into a perfectly crafted, large kicker with only four tracks in the landing zone since the Monday-overnight dump. A vigorous session commences, and Pavlantos, here, abides. (Note: Another nice kicker, down below by the trees, was respectfully left un-sessioned by Team Cohen.)

Some hikers from the Alta side of Twin Lakes Pass stopped for a bit to watch the BC kicker session before heading further out.

Carston Oliver sent a few 7's way, way down the hill.

And Lee Cohen is stoked, and it's not even 10 a.m.

Just past the zone of the gift-horse kicker, Pip and crew spent time working wind-buffed spines and ribs (= good times).
