Twin Peaks Sidecountry at Snowbird

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Run - Long John Silver Off the backside off the American Fork Twin Peaks in snowbirds backcountry

Vertical drop = 11,500 to 7,700 feet 3800 vertical feet.

After working straight through for about 20 days I finally had a day off. My buddy tim(axel foleey) his brother and mag andy B got together to do one of the longer side/backcountry runs at snowbird.

For other mags looking to do this the hike up is fairly easy but not the cakewalk it was this last year at this time. The Snow on top today was 2-4 inch of day old slightly wind pack powder down alittle lower it skied like stryofoam which was still really fun. Everything was super smooth. and the road out of whitepine is still well covered to the last 50 yards.

Some pictures for right now more pictures and video comeing from Andy_B

since I cant write that well I will just post up tons of pictures and videos.

Nice work man!

I skied a north facing chute up near the top of white pine on sunday in surprisingly good snow conditions.

Nice action shots! You're getting after it this season! So is this gig at Snowbird just a one-season thing, or are you staying longer term?

Nice use of a "day off". You have really set quite the pace this year, and your skiing shows the results.

That knife ridge looks like the trail to Pipeline. Where were you?
