After three days in a row of breaking trail in deep snow and skiing until the sun went down we were pretty tired, but we knew it was our responsibility to ski all the pow that was still out there. Will Cardamone, Jake Sakson, and Andy Jacobsen were the crew for the day. We decided to ski some larger lines since we felt good with the snowpack and the sun decided to show it’s face.

The clouds decided to roll in so we headed to the trees. Just like the day before the sun would pop through once in awhile so we played the waiting game again until we got totally clouded in.

Last Tuesday the word on the street was another day of gray skies and deep pow. As we drove up the canyon it was becoming clear that it wasn’t a gray day and that the sun had decided to come out and play. We quickly changed plans and headed for a zone where we could ski short but sweet lines in the sun. As we hiked up it kept getting cloudier and cloudier and by the time the boys were about to get on top of their lines the skies turned full milk. Since flat light does not make for great skiing or filming we decided to push on and head to some trees that we thought would still have the deep goodness.

After a couple laps the sun decided to pop out periodically. We tested our patience waiting for the right moment to drop when things lit up.

The waiting game isn’t always fun, but sometimes it is worth it.
We’ve only had one day off from filming since last Sunday, it has been amazing. Last Monday we got out with Paul kimbrough, Jake Sakson, and Andy Jacobsen. Andy took all the photos. Here is a look at some of the pics from the day.
