    TR: A week in UTardia

    Today was my 9th and final day in the land of the Utards. Probably couldnt have picked a better week to come, considering I got to ski pow every single day I was here. I got to ski with old and new friends alike, and meet more of the maggot contingent. Good times and faceshots were had....

    2/6: StroupSkier at Alta









    2/8: SoliSunday:

    Lurker mag MBlacky:



    He's got the KILL POW face:





    jbc28:



    Ran into sfotex, he got all orange ninja in the trees:







    Lurker mag Zeus:



    2/9 The Bird. Almost a crime to stop for pics on a day that epic. Did it a couple times anyway to great effect.

    boston john



    StroupSkier:



    BOO



    YAH



    Daywalker:







    bostonjohn demonstrates the phenomenon known as the "faceshot":









    2/10 The Bird.

    Mike airing it out, cant remember his TGR handle- maybe JTrue can fill in:



    JTrue charging the chop:



    ...and demonstrating proper faceshot technique:







    ...and finding the leftover goods on Baldy:



    2/11 Brighton

    MBlacky trying to find some of the soft stuff:



    Non-mag Mike doing the same:





    Blacky found some of the good stuff...



    I think most of us know this feeling:

    That same day I went over the Soli and ran into the Levitation Project doing some shooting and filming. Note: Even if in some fantasy world these were good enough, this TR is as far as these photos will ever be published.

    Not sure who this athlete is, but hes going pretty big:





    and Julian Carr got absolutely silly off of Fantasy Ridge:



    Solitude 2/12-13

    Non-mag Erin finding out why Soli rules a few days after the last big storm...





    jbc28 testing the new motohelmet/helmetcam setup:





    Myself, skiing into the distance...



    See you UTards next year...

    dude, you've had some sick days and some SICK shots this year. Your g/f may as well deed that camera over to you because you're KILLING it.

    I hope to have a sweet enough camera next year to return the favor. You're welcome to come out and hang (wherever it is) anytime.

    Excellant pics & TR. Lifetime memories.
    I want a 6" travel 20lb MTB. I found the 20lb MTB, but only good for riders under 87 pounds.

If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    Awesome. I went to VT my freshman year, and couldn't stand having to deal with southeast skiing, so I left. Looks like you're getting the best of both worlds! Sickter.

    Well done!

    This is going to make me try harder to get out to UT this year. Those were some sweet pics. Thanks for taking the time stop on a powder day and share with the less fortunate.

    Yup ^^
    Before big games I shoot Rabies, it gives me the edge I need and it’s undetectable. Only idiot losers do steroids anymore...
