Ski Day #23

I bought Liz a cross country ski setup for Christmas and we wanted to test it out on the loop and woods behind the house. I also got a great Christmas gift from Liz and her mom, enough cash to buy new touring bindings to replace my broken MFD plates. Still looking for the best […]

Ski Day #21

After a fun show the night before, I still managed to wake up early Saturday morning in order to meet friends for a fun powder day at Snowbird. Unfortunately, the storm didn’t do much overnight and the forecast for the day had been downgraded significantly. A projected foot of powder became only a couple of […]

Ski Day #12

“You win some, you lose some, you wreck some.” – Dale Earnhardt Last Thursday was an interesting day for me. I woke up determined to make it to Alta Snowbird, or Solitude. I went to bed the night before hoping to wake up to news of massive terrain openings following the recent storms. I woke […]

Ski Day #11

Storm snow totals reached 19″ in Big Cottonwood. Following an awesome powder day at Solitude and three inches of new snow overnight, Gold, Nate and I made our way back to Solitude hoping for more terrain openings and powder!!! We found a few good turns, but nothing like the previous day. To make things more […]

Ski Day #10

It snowed a bunch overnight in Big Cottonwood Canyon and Matt and I made our way to Solitude. It was still snowing when we got to the hill and it never really stopped as the day went on. Snow totals reached 16″ over the 24 hour period. Conditions were great for being so early in […]

Ski Day #6

Sam and I went for a ski tour… in the backyard. Due to long overdue lifestyle changes in the past year I anticipate a significant decrease in my ski days this upcoming season. Thus, I’m counting pretty much anything I do on skis as a ski day. Everyone seems to have a different rule when […]

#FirstSnow in #Utah

If Instagram, Facebook and Twitter were built solely for residents of Utah, they would have all broken yesterday.  All because it snowed a couple inches in late-September. Luckily, Ski Utah was there to capture it. It was actually kind of fun watching social media posts as the storm moved across the state from the Northwest. […]

People Skied In Silverton, CO Yesterday (September 23rd!)

Without the date, the title of this blog entry is pretty uninteresting. In any given year, people ski in Silverton, CO more days than not. But today is September 24th, making yesterday September 23rd. That’s earlier than usual. This photo all but guarantees we will have an amazingly, epicly, epic season with more snow than […]

Event Recap: SLC Premiere of “Partly Cloudy” by Level 1

Partly Cloudy Official Trailer from Level 1 on Vimeo. For the second year in a row, I’m attempting to write a recap of a Level 1 movie I barely remember watching. Last year I pre-gamed a little too much on the way to the premiere and forgot a lot of the movie. An excerpt from […]

Reblog from My Sister’s Toast At My Wedding

A toast to my brother on his wedding. I gave the following 2min (by bride’s rules) toast to my brother and his new wife earlier this evening in Park City, Utah:   Not too long ago, I noticed a young woman appearing in Adam’s Facebook photos.  Then on Instagram, I think, which of course Adam […]
