Conditions were a bit of a let down from expectations of 12-18" reported new snow due to everything having slid prior/during the storm leaving dust on crust on most of my favorite runs. There were still plenty of good turns to be had (It is April anyhow). It ended up being a good day to sacrifice bombing pow to play with my camera:

Saw your ride there, didn't know you loved hippies. :wink: Was about to head up and saw Scruffy on his way out, reported less than ideal snow. I bailed for Rubicon thinking it was better protected, couldn't find the upper trailhead, so settled for evening pow turns in the front yard. Sounds like it was hard to capitalize on that storm anywhere, best turns were right when it started falling. Sweet pictures!

Haha fustercluck, wondering who wrote that on my truck (lol it's still on there). Saw scruffy as I was pullin' in but he had hit the skin track before I got to see him.

Wasatch, it's an "old" Canon 40D ;)...need to get a 7D like all those cool kids! :D This was one of the first days I've ever used it for what I got it for. It's great with action shots at 6 fps.
24-70mm 2.8L lens

I took Justin (Bender) to a chute some of you know and went down and scoped it for him from the side and guided him in blind and told him to straight run it cuz it looked like perfect pow. Well, he charged into it and it was fucking ice! Luckily he handled it. Could have been ugly. Dude is strong. A well known skier guy who works for the backcountry blew out his ACL on Hidden/Bliss that day :(

you guys have done a great job making the best of a sad winter. you got some great photos there, brooks! (though i imagine the solid riders and scenic backdrop helped).

don't forget about spring riding in the cascades!
