It's not easy getting up at 4:30 in the morning, but when there is powder to be shredded it's a little easier. And when you've been huffing and puffing up the mountain for an hour in the dark and you start to get your first glimpse of the powder coated mountains in the early light, you're glad that you dragged your butt out of bed.
On this early morning tour we went up Flagstaff mountain in Little Cottonwood Canyon and traversed out Emma Ridge. We just rode a little subridge back down to the road and then it was off to work. I was on my Burton split and I was touring with my co-worker Chris Pearson and our friend Dave.
