Of course! I always go alone on those days...best feeling is to get to the parking lot within the first 3-5 cars... and admire the beauty on the first chair.... Last time I was riding behind ski patrol...until they stopped at eagle bowl to flip the sign to "OPEN"...and declare all that white beauty ready to be ripped apart.
One word for this season..Hovercraft.

Man I want a dedicated pow board(wanna sick stick) sooooooo bad but I want a new split worse, the Girlfriend is a good sport in dealing with my impatience and I love seeing her smile after coming out of the white room

Nothing like being in the parking lot early eatin breakfast and smokin one with the avy canon and explosives going off close enough to shake the rear view mirror.......just makes me smile uncontrollably.

We were riding the 3rd or 4th Snowbird tram up last year(during a rare 3+ foot pow day) with friends visiting from Montana when they announced over the Tram loud speaker that they were opening the cirque NOW. I grabbed my friends(instructors) epic crazy blower runs before all the chutes got ridden out....man that was an awesome day.....best Snowbird day ever for me...so mush snow in your face you could hardly breathe.

For real nothing wrong with that, I love coming home to some deep fried habanero\jalapeno wantans or bacon wrapped sausages, margaritas, mojito's and PBR\Coors tall boys waiting to be drank in the warmed up hot tub!

I purposely leave hungry..well maybe a protein shake or another Oddwalla bar...drive back and get home to make myself a huge carbonara (typical roman pasta dish) or double mushroom burgher


Carbonara:

eggs ( one per person)
bacon ( lean thick one, in chunks)
Olive oil
Pecorino + parmesan cheese
Pepper

Red wine or beer.
