I don't want to get anybody worked up or anything... but, we decided to go for a ride today to see how much new snow came down overnight. To our great surprise there was about 14" of nice September pow at about 9000'. OH YES... POW POW AGAIN IN SEPTEMBER!
We went for a little bootpack and found the snow got really nice up high. Hard carves and no rocks! We love Utah! Thought we'd better share a few pics of the day's riding adventure. All in all, we logged about 1400' of fat-out-of-shape bootpack! Not bad!
The view of snow and green leaves on the aspens, up top.
My good friend Jennyfurrr ditchin' work and the kids to get some!
Gramps enjoying the powder.
E carvin' up some sweet pow!
Boardergirl... this is alot better than work.
O.K. So, there were a few weeds still showing, but they were still fun to air over.
We've never had to worry about green folaige before. A bit of a hazard!
Nice view of the Bear River Range from our back porch.
Great day with some great friends. Hope there's another one soon!

Sorry to poach your TR Boardergirl but it didn't seem like enough to post a TR of my own...plus I'm lazy. Luckily they didn't get any pics of me riding...managed to forget my poles & boots so I was riding in hiking shoes...doh
This was yesterday 9-23 @ ~8,000'. Bruce enjoying the day

Well, not to be outdone here in sunny CA, here's mtnrider and Bart, uh, shredding 2-4" of nice "brown talus" pow at Mammoth on Sunday:
Actually, that particular hill probably would have been easier to ride on a board! Oh... the real snow in that shot is leftover from last season. I think it will be a while before the CA trip reports start rolling in. In the meantime, please continue to taunt us...
