Recently the weather here in the Wasatch has been quite interesting. The storms keep rolling through fast and furious. The forecast was calling for a short break in the storms yesterday morning so we took advantage.
We were skinning by 5:30am in hopes to get a lap or two in before the clouds rolled back in.
As the sun came up we could see we had full blue skies.
Forrest Shearer was first to drop.
Good light and good snow make for happy Powderwhores.
Mr. Jason West was up next. He aired in and stomped his landing only to hit a rock that took him down, luckily he was fine.
The clouds were slowly coming in but we still had good light so Forrest went for another.
We have been looking at this line for some time, it was fun to watch Forrest crush it.
Making it look easy.
Forrest with the post run fist pump.
Jason sending down sluff showers.
All of a sudden Jason went down and went for a ride through rocks and trees.
He ended up in the apron without any injuries, he was only missing a ski.
Noah spotted the ski way above Jason. So he skinned up and threw it down to him.
Let's take some time to reflect on how lucky Jason was by looking at this cool photo Andy took.
The clouds finally rolled in and Jason had to head to work. Jason wasn't going to end his day like that so he went for one more lap.
We all held our breath as Jason droped in because we knew if he fell again he would not be a happy camper.
Success! Jason saluting us as he headed to work.
As we drove down the canyon we saw these guys.
They were just off the road chillin as almost every car stopped to take pictures.
A fun way to end an exciting day.
The goats told us you should shop at Backcountry.com if you need any gear.
We just got some more pics from our friend Jim Harris who came out and shot photos as well. Check them out.
