Mother’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, May Snow Plowers… however you want to make a joke about it, it snowed schuss-worthy amounts in the first week of May (again) this year in two different jurisdictions of the FIS. The Utah and Vermont bureaus both got treated to a late season round of snow! In Vermont, Lionel wrote up that we had a little snowfall event to enjoy coming our way. In Utah, although Lionel wasn’t writing about a snowfall-event in the making, Ben and Porter knew it was going to snow because of a super top secret that we’re going to let you in on: it always snows in Utah. This quick update is a combo of those two. Being they were both from around cinco de mayo, this is Combo Number Five. (click on that youtube link for some tunes)

In Vermont, here’s Christian and Matt getting ready to drop. As Christian got himself together though, suddenly he broke out into song. “Ladies and gentleman. This is combo number five,” sang Christian.
