Takin' A Tram Lap- Snowbird- 11.26.2014

The Tram finally opened, and what a treat it was. Cold chalky snow that was super to carve in. It was nice to be dropping in from the peak. The holiday traffic is out, but it did not seem to be that terrible since the flow was going and the stoke level was high for sunshine and great conditions. Enjoy the edit below and Pray 4 Snow!

First Day @ The Bird 14/15- Snowbird, Utah 11.24.2014

I finally got out on my home mountain for the season. We had a once in every two to five year storm come in and blanket the Wasatch with 30-40 inches of snow. It snowed so hard Alta could not even open on Sunday. I figured Monday should be pretty dead. Nope, full line at Gadzoom when they sent the first chair up the hill. No matter, there was good snow to be had, and pretty much most of the traffic was staying on trail. I am still just blown away that I had my powder board out this early in the season. Lower Harpers Ferry was giving up knee deep thick creamy turns. And the on trail was fast and chargeable. It was a fun day up there, and nice to be back in Little Cottonwood Canyon. I made a little edit, and now I got my aspect corrected on my videos. More adventures from the LCC to come!

Opening Day @ Solitude Mountain Resort- 11.21.2014

Well it is finally here! I hit opening day at Solitude for the 14/15 season. It was light traffic, and a great mix of natural and man made snow. They had three lifts running, Apex, Moonbeam, and the beginner terrain on Link. The terrain open was really fun to ride. I spent most of the day up there slashing turns and just getting all the muscle memory back for snowboarding. Bluebird skies, mild temps, and and fun all around. It was a great day up there, and it was so nice to be snowboarding again. Enjoy the quick edit below, and Pray 4 Snow! This party has begun! Get your snowdances on!
