KYsnowboarder's UT->CO->WY trip report
 
So far so good. I have had two almost blue bird days, the wind kept them from being true blue bird days. Snow Basin and the Dew Tour were awesome. The mountain had a wide variety of terrain including black diamonds that gave me some OH SHIT moments...no one will ever see the go pro video shot on these it was not pretty. I spent some time watching the slope style finals for both the women and the men, this cut into riding time but it was well worth it. I can't tell you how awesome it was to see this in person. These people are great athletes doing awesome things both on snowboards and skis. The atmosphere was awesome to.

Monday I road Powder Mountain..I was a little disappointed when I first arrived that the porcupine lift was shut down for the day, apparently it was broken. I quickly discovered that this place is hudge and there were plenty of trails to ride. I found some mellow tree runs that I pretty much stayed in all day, I shot some go pro video, I will post when I have a better connection...I will do a trip back here just to ride Powder Mountain...

Today I am going to hit Brighton up, will be doing some night riding with Snowvols

There a storm coming, thunder snow is predicted...this could keep me in UTAH longer...I may stay through Friday and us Saturday as a travel day, this will give roads time to recover from storm. It may mean dropping vail from the list, we will have see how things work out. Thunder Snow is predicted for the area...


I will posting pictures and be blogging about the trip on this forum but also on the link on my signature page, this will be where I will post pictures to...they will be at the 2nd link..

You don't want to be out in thunder snow. They'll shut down the lifts anyway if that happens.

Looks like Colorado is getting back into the storm track Thursday-Sunday. Probably going to be pretty darn good around here over President's weekend.

It seem like the bulk of the storm will be at night based on the forecast...keeping fingers crossed that any thunder/wind occurs at night. Presidents day weekend is playing into the plan...I figure traveling on one of those days would be the better plan.

THIS STORM IS KINDA EXCITING!!!! You should be good once the storm rolls in through the rest of your trip. Its good you got some scruff days because your legs are going to get tore-up from Thursday-on. Lets hope this keeps cycling from Tahoe To the Washatch, Tetons, and Front Range. Snow Baby, Snow!!!!!!!!

Exciting is very important component for this trip.. I always love when they star talking about snow in Louisville...Despite the fact that it doesn't really mean much (we don't have mountains) I still get excited. Part of it is the way others react to it, there emotions feed my excitement. Most don't seem to get it back home, they see as a nuisance. Even before I contemplated snowboarding I always have gotten exited about snow. I remember 1994...we had thunder snow...received 14 inches...I was 17 and worked at the bowling alley. The city was shout down...I still went to work, I drove my 1989 caviler Z24 through 14 inches of unplowed roads. I pulled up in the bowling alley parking lot and felt great about my accomplishment, only to discover the bowling was closed to...lol...the drive home was equally rewarding. I want a fucking blizzard..it just needs to happen at night.

Brighton was awesome tonight... I really like that place. I think I like the more low key ski areas, the ones without all of the hub bub...peter was wrong about brighten..
