Vail Pass Pow 12-18-2010

I have had the shit eating grin since basically the season began for me. Pretty much every day has been the "best" day of the season. After my trip to Bert I thought it was going to be awhile to top those conditions. Then Saturday at Vail Pass rolled along and it was a doozy. Around 2 feet of snow, deeper in the landing zones greeted us. The top 6-12" was super light low moisture content snow. The type only Colorado gets. Blower. It also ran off the cliff tops easily. Fortunately there was plenty of fluff under that. It other words "stoopid deep".

All pictures featuring me were shot by Forrest Thorniley.

And here I go...
