vltsai Some recent storms at Bear helped to bring in a nice layer to cruise on! For those that have been to Bear, you guys know how seldom the canyons get filled in. For those that haven't, Bear is almost exclusively park - even on powder days, there's usually not enough snow to fill in the canyons in between the runs. It's a rare day when you get to ride through these (been a couple of years for me since Bear had anything like this) and when it happens, you take full advantage.

I don't know if I could compare these canyons to any awesome resort I've been on (Northstar, Heavenly, Mammoth), but they're tight and fast. The turns are banked, filled with drop-offs and small jumps, tiny chutes, and fallen trees that you either have to hop over or duck under (friend almost got caught coming around a blind turn) but if you focus for just a bit, it's one of the most enjoyable runs you'll ever be on. I wish I brought my GoPro for this one.

Triple8Sol Bluebird day after a storm at the end of our Utah trip last weekend. Spent all day finding good hits at Brighton, nothing that spectacular, but here's one of a blind cliff drop from the evidence machine:

I'm way up at top of the tram, or close, for this shot.

These hills in little cottonwoods are ridiculous. Just mind blowing beauty every which way you look.

Looks like monte cristo/superior. You gotta get a little higher, and farther back to get the whole thing in the frame. You should see whats on th other side...



Glad you had fun in Utah. It would be nice if we could have gotten a deep and light dump last week(for your sake and mine) but it snowed enough to keep things fresh.

Sick pic. Definitely desktop wallpaper worthy.

AcroPhile From earlier this week, a couple of days after a pow day but before the freeze/thaw cycle fucked up the snow.

pdxrealtor I had descriptions of all pics written out and they came out all fucked up.

This forum has got to be the worst when it comes to uploading pics.

Pow Mow was the best snow day, a side from Brighton, but Pow Mow is just so mellow and peaceful it was my favorite. .

pdxrealtor OK... back on topic--- here was my best shred that I have pics of from my Utah trip.

It was actually at POW MOW after the 5" dump the night before.

POW MOW was my favorite ride, followed by Brighton. Snowbird was breath taking, but when I was there our group had a guide who worked there and let's just say his skill level included dropping the cirque runs several times.

Don't get me wrong, the rest of the mountain tour was great. Spent a lot time in min. basin and right (skier right) side of the mountain, Primrose etc.

Snowbird is a mountain that you can have the skills for, but it takes time to learn the mountain. It's to be respected more than anything else I've ever seen. I ended up here after ducking through some trees. It's obviously been hit all day, but I didn't know where it went (large drop or easy decent at bottom--see cliff on right). and I was solo at the time, so I took a different route. Actually I wasn't solo, I was a way from my group. The two skiers that ended up in the exact same spot spent 20 min. hiking out with me vs. taking the chute.
