Friday Stashes @ Brighton- 11.22.13
I am loving the Big Cottonwood Pass this season. This last week, I did a Wednesday at Brighton, Thursday at Solitude, and then got some fresh turns on Friday at Brighton. This was a three day, light storm, that just put a couple of inches down each day to give the riding conditions a fresh paint job. But Thursday night, lake effect kicked in and put down some nice fluff for us to ride on. I got out just after 9 am on Friday and headed up Crest for a warm up lap. The cords were so delicious, with a little wind buff action on the southwest facing angles. A virtual ghost town, which would not be the case a couple of hours later. I jammed over to Snake Creek, and pretty much rode the whole area, on trail and off piste. Found some stashes which were untouched, probably because Wednesday and Thursday had low visibility issues. I charged right through all of these areas and met no base assassins. I put together a little edit from riding Brighton up on here so you can see the conditions. It got busy up there after 11 AM, when the word got out that there was snow in dem der hills! Finished off the day with some high speed cruisers on Crest, which caps off a great day at Brighton for sure. Lots of snow making going on up there. With a few more storms, even more of Upper Big Cottonwood will be accessible. Enjoy the edit, and Pray 4 Snow!
