Got back yday from Utah and it was quite memorable. After fighting with United Airlines because my board wound up in San Jose and then L.A. and then it finally showed up in SLC at midnight, only 11 hrs after we landed there, my Trip thus far was a wreck. But after finding out that brighton doesnt have nite skiing on Sundays, i figured that i didnt lose a day of riding anyways.
The next day, we headed out for Snowbird ( big mistake, explain later )
when we got there, we were told to take the peruvian express to the top and then take the tunnel into Mineral Basin. As we were approaching the exit of the tunnel, i got a small glimpse of the view and my Jaw literally dropped
The epic views of Snowbird is what i was wating for.
Snowbird really impressed me. The skill level of both riders and skiiers was way up there. It was really enjoyable hauling ass with 99% of the people there:
All i can say about Snowbird is that it was Cat Track heaven. Being from the east, we dont have any cat-tracks here, ive never seen them at least
Chips run was by far the best trail i ever been on in my life. Every trail was fast, steep, and long. I dont care much about deep pow, as long as there is packed powder and no ice, im a happy camper
Snowbird as of now seems to be unbeatable in the best resorts department so far
The next day, we headed out to the canyons.
I chose this resort for one reason only...NyInfamous'Girl told me that i have to
go on top of the 9990 lift. So i took a couple of blue runs to get me warmed up for the day and i proceeded to where i was advised to go.
as i was approaching the lift, i noticed it was empty and signs were posted everywhere to use Extreme Caution: Experts Only
I kinda had second guesses, but i told myslef, " Go hard, or Go home"
I got to the top and holy shit how am i gonna get down
I gathered my thoughts and for some reason hiked up even higher haha. now i was at the perimeter of the resort:
I then for some odd reason, opened the warning gate and headed outside the boundaries and dropped into an insane bowl:
In a nut shell..snowbird got the best of us. Me and my girl both regret going there first because we couldnt enjoy the Canyons as much. All we thought about was Snowbird!!
In conclusion, ill leave you guys with a funny video. Enjoy!
