Snowbasin | Dec. 26, 2011
The search for snow continued today at Snowbasin, but one member short. My sister caught a flight to Costa Rica this morning to make the most of her vacation, while ma dukes and I hit up Snowbasin to poach some powder & catch some core shots from the rocky backcountry. While on the gondola I spoke with a Vermont native, who is working as a ski patrolman at the resort, he told me that this has been the slowest winter for snowfall in the last twenty years; insert sad face. One thing that did make me smile, was this hyperactive dog constantly running circles in the truck ahead of us. The short 40 minute ride to the mountain (compared to the usual 3hr hike to VT) was a welcome change & full of surreal mountain scenery. Today was sick, but I’m stoking for Alta tomorrow!
