TR: Alta, Snowbird, Solitude

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone!

This is my first post here, and thought might as well post some recent skiing. After graduating Berklee in Boston, I headed out to SLC as my bands were still in school for another year. My dad came out to visit, ski, and play tunes... It hasn't really snowed in more than a week but the high pressure and bluebird skies have been epic beautiful days!

Here is my first attempt at a short ski movie -

great first post!!

the video was decent and really good for a first timer.

The guy on the hellbents is a pretty good skier and has chance to become great if he just move his hips alittle further forward.

but sweet you get it, unlike so many other posters here.

because his first post was stoke. not making baseless claims about how great he was or that his edges are tuned to .7/3.

Nice 1st post stoke....I agree

Haven't seen a lot of folks on here making baseless or any other claims about how great they are...but maybe I missed them

lots of folks on this board care about all that tuning stuff and endless conversations about technique and ski instructor teaching methods......I don't so I just don't read that stuff.....

I'm heading out there Friday through Monday. Been watching the weather report for the last 10 days. Seems kind of warm on Friday. weather.com says rain/snow mix... but the NWS forecast only has snow in the forecast.

Great clips. I did a season at Alta around 1984. Brings back memories of the great snow, and open bowls. I even saw a few spots that I remember from my time at Alta.

Keep posting those videos.
