Things I have learned in the last month.
1) Getting skiing "out of your system" over winter break is damn near impossible
2) You don't have enough control unless your boots feel like a tourture device
3) High Pressure doesn't have to be all bad
Even though a high pressure system was in Salt Lake for about two weeks during January and made the entire town look like that Steven King book, The Fog (or the Mist or whatever, I forgot the actual title) the skiing at still remained pretty good.
Although, I was the first to drop to praise Ullr when the snow finally returned last week...
But wait! There's more...
As a bonus for the extra amount of time it took me to upload this, here are some pictures taken with awesome ski photog Adam Barker (http://www.adambarkerphotography.com/) in early January.
Adam and I find some powder off Lone Pine.
I can ski with the sun in my eyes.
Adam shoots my skiing from the 3rd person perspective.
Mandatory lifestyle shot.
Cheers & Pray for Snow,
