Winter is not over yet!
The mountains are still fat with a thick snowpack, so we spent the weekend shredding the settled remains of the last Wasatch storm that dropped 6″-12″. Conditions change quick this time of year so we hit it early and had the range to ourselves until 10am. World Telemark Freeski Champion, Megan Michelson came to town to show the boys how it’s done.
Megan’s warm-up run.
PW has been lucky enough to film with Megan several times this winter and we are really excited about her film debut in “The Pact” PW08.
Looking pleased with her decison to leave CO corn for UT pow.
PW veteran Darrell Finlayson laying it out. On leave from his ski patrol job, Silky-D has been on chute skiing rampage, but joined us for some turns in the cream dream.
Fresh of the plane from a spring ski trip to AK, Noah Howell places his tray in the upright position for landing.
Fast, fluid, and female, excellent combination. Megan rides out the ridge on Black Knob.
The Superior Highway during rush hour traffic.
Darrell, with a visual explaination of how he earned the nickname “Silky-D”.
Megan stepping up her game.
Noah Howell crushing it, or getting crushed?
Getting crushed, OUCH! Quality entertainment to end the day, glad you were OK.
Thanks to Jay Beyer and Darrell Finlayson for the pics.
