Scotts/Guardsman Tour, Big Cottonwood Canyon- 3.8.2017
Finally I got a day free to get back after it on the splitboard. I had yet to visit the Guardsman area this year, so I figured today was the day. The road is buried so deep right now. Lots of ruts from the sleds running the road to get to the PC side. I made a pretty quick pace up to the junction to Scotts Pass. I made my way up the summer trail, and near the top ran into the biggest Moose I have ever seen in the Wasatch. I ducked into some trees as I do not think he saw me. I made the change over quick in case I needed a rapid departure. I did not make it to my destination I was shooting for, but no big, the snow was gonna be grand. In the shadow the snow was still blower pow. In the sun it was getting cooked by some really warm temperatures. I made the drop and had so much fun. When I popped out into the sun lower down on the mountain, you could really tell the snow as getting baked. I left my mark on some fresh canvas out there and had a really nice day going for a walk and getting a few turns. It was nice to be out on the skin track once more. Enjoy the video, more to come!
