Snowbird Feb 3-5
 
A bit later than I intended, but better late than never. We had three very different but all good weather days and as promised, here they are.

Day one was sunny and only slightly chilly. We hit the tram at 9 and never looked back. There were groomers and more pow stashes than expected considering it hadn't snowed in a few days. We'll pick up on the ride up...

The ride up LCC

Tram departing

We took a run down Chip's to warm up, and I was so stoked that I said damn a pic. Chip's may be the best blue in the world if you like dropping out of it to find super tall walls in gullies (Black Jack) with large hits. From here we move to Mineral Basin after another tram ride...

We found some good stash out here

Still of me in Powder Shots over at Mineral Basin

The snow was nice at MB and lots of fresh on the far side approaching Baldy

Once the pow hounding took over, we broke out the video and that wasn't my area. Once I get the edits, I can post them

Here are a couple of scenic shots later in the afternoon though

Day 2 brought an overcast but with it, a warmer day. We cut to the chase and decided to go Bald on the very first run...

Start point of the hike

A look down just after the hike and before the traverse

A look out just before the traverse... love how the Oquirrh Range is situated perfectly between the cloud lines, one just above SLC and the other just above us

Start of the traverse

A look down at our drop point... Xan up close and Brian below

I have a couple of corrupt photos at this point or you'd otherwise see a better down shot of the surface (on the market for a new camera)

A look up of Tommy and chutes and trees we just slayed... all fresh

Tommy and me

The rest of the day found us going clear across the resort to Tiger Tail, but no pics of that except...

And of course, cheers!
