Someone once said a picture is worth a 1000 words but in some cases just 1 will do; Snow. Well unfortunately,  this week this one leads to frustration. If history has taught us something it's 9-13 can turn to 2-4 in a bathroom break and best laid plans can turn to a weekend of football instead of turns. As winter has its way with me this week 4-8 turned to 1-3. Here's to praying.

Snowbird Run

Since the snow line is receding instead of advancing (like it should be) it was decided that we try to get some "longer runs" in throughout the famine. Thus, a run up to Snowbird was on the menu for Saturday unfortunately, so was a Friday night of drinking, as well a a 6 a.m. start to a full day of work (before play of course). Nonetheless we got started at about 3:30 that afternoon.

" looks a lot more appealing when snow is on this slope"

Pure determination (might as well be an ad for Nike)

I thought you said beer and wings were at the top.

Distance: 6.1 miles
Time: 1 hr. 7 min.

Elevation gain: 2415 ft.

And So It Begins...

Rocks, Trees, Scrapes and Turns all rolled into one day. Went up to Baldy Shoulder, luckily with just the right amount of snow you don't know if its a boulder field or just some small brush (wishful thinking at least).

"All we need is like 156 more powder days and the base will be perfect"

Superior pre-sunrise, probably wouldn't do that without a parachute.
