Utah definitely has some fancy dancy snow. If anybody wants to demo some Bros in Utah, skifishbum has a fleet at Powderhorn Rental Shop at Solitude. Free of charge.

First of all, Nice!!!
Second, .........Splat Skis?
I thought he just hung out by the slopes and hit on hot chicks!

Third, Where's Tyrone!?

Thanks for the update on PM Gear. That doesn't look like a slide-slipping knuckle dragger.

haha...I couldn't get away from my 'day job' to attend unfortunately. Perhaps someday that will change...but not yet.

Glad you guys got to make some turns out there Splitter!

Now I just have to see about making some turns with the likes of you and splitter.
Rememer Tyrone, you promised, if I chicken out, you'll push me!

Thanks for the heads up. I've tried to contact Skifishbum about demoing some Bros., to no avail. I'll get up to Solitude in the next week or so.
Keep up the great work.

I'm guessing he couldn't hear the phone ringing because his ears were plugged with the sound of falling snow!:

I call BS -- Splat doesn't actually ski, does he?

Anytime.

I followed skifishbum up one more ridge and dropped the opposite northfacing aspect


Being a backcountry rat, I get a lot of bottomless untracked turns. We got to the top of the 2nd ridge, and it looked like fun, but nothing jumped out at me. Skifishbum pointed out a grove a trees he was going to ski underneath to get a photo of me. I should turn into the line above the grove and he'd get a shot (missed the shot).

That was the best 800 vert I've ever ridden. I came around that grove and found 40 degrees of the most bottomless billowy snow wide open for 800 feet.

I can't shake the vision of seeing the line open up before me, and the feeling of the snow billowing so high over head.

I used to talk about the cowboy powder in wyoming. Holy cow Utah:

Splitter, Inspiring!!
I'm just a hick from Michigan. Never skied Backcountry, because it's just not something accessible to me, but its definitely an area of my skiing I'd like to expand into!!!
Inspirational!!!
