First Turns for 15/16- Albion Basin Tour- 11.13.2015

Who says you can't have fun with just a little? We finally got a bit of snow in the mountains. I decided to go for a walk on the skins in the Albion Basin to see what was out there. Things are thin and bony at best pretty much everywhere. I stayed on the road and in the meadow because off the main run in the meadow, it was shallow with rocks everywhere. They had gunned snow through the last storm and were out smashing it all down to get ready for opening day. I made my way up the meadow and past the bottom of the Cecret Lift and then decided going any further was not in my best interest because there was just not enough snow. I switched it into riding mode and dropped into a better than expected run. While I was making the switch out, the snow cats must have groomed the meadow because it was a really fun ride to the car! I was not out for anything more than just getting out on the skins for a walk, and this day proved to be better than I could have hoped for! Enjoy the pic and video and let this winter party get started!

  1. Ah, you use blogger too! I'll be honest - this is the first time I've looked at your site. Very nice! I just turned my skis into Canyon Sports for their tune-up - I can't wait to get out there! Love your pics - Alicia

    1. Hey Alicia! Thanks for stopping by! I read your blog all the time. I have been doing this since 2011 for people to see what I do to get all these photographs I take. Thanks for the very kind words. Pray 4 Snow! We need it!

  2. Quick question - what is Shambhala referring to?

  3. Shambhala is a path of bravery. A path that is open to anyone who seeks a genuine and fearless existence.
