Here's a video my buddy took on his cell phone of me tracking up the powder....

 

And here's another silly cell phone video of me from today...

Sweet, thanks for the vids. I thought that I had had my last day on the slopes a couple of weeks ago, but I'm definitely headed to the 'Bird tomorrow.

Best storm ever at the Bird?  Its good, but I wouldn't go that far.  There have been other days this year that were quite a bit better, IMHO.

I'll try to post some videos from today.

I'm convinced - headed up there on Saturday.   Just hope the road is open and everyone in SLC is hung over from the Jazz win.  Gotta love May skiing at the 'Bird!

Hahahaha.  That's right, like my buddy says here "it may not look deep on Brian because he's 6'8""...

Yeah, BWPA, it was just another average day at the 'Bird.  Flat light and fog up top.  The snow in Wilbere Chutes was superb, and I got a couple of nice runs in there while the fog was lifted and the sun was thinking about coming out.  Every other run off the top was fog-bound and vertigo-inducing.  A novelty worth noting - freshies on Big Emma as I skied down to my truck at the end of the day at Gadzoom Base.

Cool video. 

Yeah, the storm made for some awesome powder skiing.  May 2nd was some of the best of the season.  Fog at the top of the mountain doesn't lessen how good the powder was.
