I've also posted a link to Alta's latest edition of their "On the Lift" series with yours truly. We shot this last week on the Wildcat Chair at Alta and as you can clearly see it was a pretty good powder day. During the interview I called this potential snowstorm more than week in advance. Yes, that's the sound of me patting myself on the back. No shame!

And of course, Mountain Mama, a former Meterologist also has her eyes on this storm. Everybody loves spring pow, right?
