Day Two

Day two started early, especially after hitting the High West Distillery for some primo whiskey & grub the night before. Spent most of the day over at Deer Valley where the sun was out in full force (not helpful for my hangover) & so were the crowds for some pre-Christmas laps. That didn’t stop us from poaching some nice boot-deep powder off piste. The snow was pure Wasatch fluff, where you could find it. But as the day wore on; the crowds diminished, and so did the stamina in my legs. Before hitting the hot tub for a much needed soak, I got a hold of santa for some apres ski action. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays to all of you, from all of us at Alpine Live!

Finally!

Flew into Salt Lake City last night, just in time for one of SLC’s fabled sunsets was a pretty damn good start to my Utah trip. Today we hit Park City Resort – but with the lack of snow Utah’s seeing this season, and no storms in sight, we stuck to the groomers and ducked a few ropes to find some real snow. Either way I was just stoked to see some snow, get to ride, and of course some Apres. My sister and mom both have a twinge of altitude sickness; needless to say I went out solo and have a ton of footage from the first day alone, so an edit will be a little farther out – but here’s some shots & shenanigans from my first couple days in Ootah.
