Top blogs from 2011-12


By Yeti \ May 7 2012 \ 2 Comments

The sensational Ski Utah blog team met up in Odgen last week for a day to look back and reflect upon the 2011-12 season.  The brainstorm session was properly kicked off with a round of indoor sky diving known as iFly at the Salomon Center and finished up in style at Rooster's Brewing Co.

Understandably this year delivered a few less powder days than other Utah winters, but nonetheless the team enjoyed a winter in Utah that still welcomed 400 inches of snow, world class events and even a stunt in which local entrepreneurs and bloggers skied all 14 Utah resorts in one day.  

Cheers to the winter of 2011-12, and in case you missed it, here are each blogger’s most celebrated post:

Jodi Saeland - Brighton snowboarding lessons at 4 years old! Brennan is a local Salt Lake kid who developed a passion for snowboarding this season at age 4.

Park Rat Tom - Hide Your Couches: The 5 Golden Rules of Surfing.  Why not accept a few couch surfing tips from a pro?

Powderhound Cat - How To: Look Like a Pro.  Pumped that the “How To” series was born this year.

Powderhound Matt - It’s just deeper at Solitude.  The way skiing should be, DEEP (snorkel needed).

Ride Utah - The North Face Masters: Part 3 - Finals.

Ski Utah Yeti - Video footage from Utah’s 50’’ storm.  

Thomas Cooke - The Six Inch Rule.  6 inches of snow or 6 feet, kids don’t care.
