    TR: UT11-2: Redemption

    Edit: the title of this thread is officially changed to epic pow face shots craziness hookers blow etc. or something else that grabs your attention. What a fkn run.

    Part 1
    UT11-1 didnt turn out so hot as we observed a incredibly rare rain event in LCC in January. 5 weeks of prayer to Ullr were answered this past week, and we were able to hit Snowbird in epic conditions.
    Started out Friday after the Thursday powder day

    Early scenic


    Early saturday morning Ullr opened the skies and dropped 4 inches btwn 5 and 8am. Nobody expected Saturday to be a powder day - and those sleeper days are sometimes the best.


    Mike samples the goods on saturday morning




    Gad2 was deep...

    slash, breathe, repeat




    tips up


    Sunday was storm skiing at its best. Over two feet had fallen and it nuked all day. Another 6-8 of pure smoke on Sunday night, and monday the sun came out
    (bit more snow on those roofs...)


    fresh cirque goodness


    ptessler, not turning much


    Never saw the twins look so pretty


    We had the pleasure of dropping the rope on little cloud bowl...ahead of the crowds...


    I was literally the first one down the bowl. great turns were had. but by the time i stopped, got a camera out, and looked back up, lots of tracks...


    Great pow turns all day, really incredible snow conditions.


    yum


    stay tuned for part 2

    Part II

    The adventure continues at the Canyons. First day I spent poking around, finding very little in bounds that was worth skiing. The next day though i was lucky to hook up with mc_roon for a few slackcountry laps.

    Easy access out the gate was sweet, though the number of gapers walking out unprepared was startling. Each of them was asked for bacon, for good measure.

    The skin is easy, and made easier by the view

    last months objective, mt. Raymond, prominently viewable (TR here: https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/s...e-bright-spots )

    mc_roon, first run on goalposts. he sends it wide right after i split the uprights. (it was good).


    Got to meet sitski13 atop 9990, very cool. His buddy was doing some speedflying off the ridge



    next run mc_roon dropped us on top of this perfect cliff band


    deep soft snow


    next lap, did i mention the view?


    bluebird powshot




    and a bit lower down


    Big thanks to mc_roon for the mini tour.
    Today is hopefully the calm before the storm cuz the conditions were pretty brutal. Highpoint for sure was chasing sitski13 around some groomers. Dude rips!



    Part III? More storm skiing? Yes please.
