Snowbird for Thanksgiving

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I spent the holidays with my family at my in-laws. They live at the base of big cottonwood cny. My wife and kids had been there for a week while I stayed back home and worked. Arrived late wed. night and had a great day with the family. I had brought my gear just in case. My wife, without me asking, told me to go ski on friday. Shin high powder fell overnight. Best powder day I have had in a couple of years. Thanks to Dave @ christy's for showing me around. At 12:30 it was getting pretty blown out so I took one more tram up to the top. The driver got on the horn and said that mineral basin had just opened. More freshies for about another 2 hours. Epic start of what looks to be a promising year.

That's what Thankgiving is about. Your thankful for your wife giving you the freedom to enjoy your day.

PS send some of that snow to us here in the east.

Skied the Bird all weekend and by Sunday it was killer! 30+inches, face shots, cold a true winter day! Mineral Basin was really bad on Sunday as the wind hammered it and there was two foot wind packed slabs everywhere.
