First Turns of the Year! (Video)

It's that time of the year again. Once again we are skiing powder in Utah. Have a look at what our first powder turns looked like.

I’m not going to lie to you. They weren’t the steepest or deepest turns but they were powder turns, and those are the turns I like the most.  My initial plan this season was to  hold off on skiing until we had a solid base. A base in the neighborhood of about three feet.  But on Sunday morning, when those big fat flakes started falling from the sky,  I knew there was no way in hell I’d be able to control my urge and not ski. Sure enough, Monday morning arrived and Adam and I were up at Alta Ski Area making the best of the twelve inches that fell over the weekend.  To think, I almost let the day pass me by. As it turns out this is exactly what I was craving. Shocking right? It’s nice to see winter again.
