Touring in Vegas. Say what?
 
So I heard that Vegas got puked on this past week. I was already heading down there to run in a marathon and said hell why not bring the split. I hooked up with a couple guys off split.com and another off of TGR and away we went.

I will say this, Vegas has the snow sucka.

A line that looked super fun, but since there wasn't a base need to hit next time.

Sorry there aren't action shots. We got roughly 4K vert in the trees and I didn't bother taking the camera out each time down. My legs were fried for the marathon so 20 weeks of training went down the drain. That and it was the most crowded marathon that ever existed. Super fun time and was stoked Matt off of TGR showed us around to a few of his hidden spots. It was something I was not used to seeing at all which was skin tracks not in every direction. I only saw one other skinner the entire day and it was right by the ski area.
