After we got back to Utah, the string of bluebird days ended. Lionel called for a real firehose of a storm, and boy did it deliver! Over the course of the next 5 days, we didn’t see anything except snow flying out of the sky. After two days it was already piling up high on the porch.

Storm light doesn’t make for great pictures, but the skiing was fun!

Kate got buried

But is she having fun?

I jumped off some more things…

There were lots of faceshots

Even the cars were getting some…

Toward the end of the storm, we met up with Porter, Dwyer, and some friends for a dawn patrol

What time is it?

Porter getting some!

Mark got deep too

    There’s too much snow, these pics are useless. I can’t tell if Kate is on her new gotamas or not.

    Great pics. Thanks for sharing – looking forward to a west coast trip to A-basin and surrounding area, but it seems like you FIS people only go to Utah? Yes? In any case share some snow with us in the east……..

      We don’t only ski in Utah, but it sure is a nice place to go!

      In this case, my girlfriend (Kate) is working at Alta, so a trip to Utah was a no-brainer…

      Fortunately for you, Summit County has also been having a great start to the season (although there is almost no snow east of the Continental Divide), so you should have a good western trip!
