I made it over to Alta yesterday afternoon. While I missed some great powder skiing in the morning, the dense snow and winds created some of the best "buff" I can remember skiing. Everywhere you looked, skiers were ripping high speed turns as if the entire mountain had been freshly groomed. Fun day. Check out some footage of the boys sending some fun lines at Snowbird.
I'm off to Deer Valley to ski 16 inches of pow. Cheers!
January 4, 7am update:
The storm just continues to deliver. Just look at the storm totals from the morning of January 4th.
With the roads looking challenging, even closing the schools in Park City for the first time in decades, Matt and I made the short drive to Deer Valley to ski the 19" of new snow in the last 24 hours. Check out the video from January 3rd at Deer Valley Resort.The next wave of the storm has reached Utah. Snow started overnight and should continue into Thursday. Check back for more updates as the storm totals and face-shot footage continue to stack up.
I hope you've brushed off your 2016 hangover, because it’s game-time here in Utah.
Holiday season is winding down and Mother Nature is rewarding the locals for waiting out the crowds and season pass restrictions. The first wave in a series of winter storms called for 5-10” of snow in favorable areas… we got that and more. A LOT MORE.

After waking up to six inches of new snow in Park City, I joined Powderhound Matt and Jason Morgan on a quick backcountry tour on the Park City Ridgeline. What we expected to be blue skies, instead gave way to more and more snow. We skied a couple of laps and left to take care of business before life's priorities take a backseat to skiing pow.
Check out our videos from day one of the storm. This is going to be one hell of a week. Cheers!
