It’s Ski Season!!!

By Tim Roberts Nov 12, 2006

Ski Season is here!!! We finally got the dump we needed and ski season
is on! So today, I cruised over to Alta with my buddies Conan,
Kristian and Randy for our first day of the year on skis. We decided
to hike Alta for some early season powder turns. They open this
weekend, but we can’t wait that long. The parking lot was over half
full. It looks like we aren't the only ones that like skiing beautiful
blue bird powder days in November. On the hike up I stumbled over a
snow snake, and started flailing backwards down the hill. My skins were
not sticking, so I started boot packing. We got to the top tired, but
super exited about what was about to go down. We skied past a few
tracks and then found some untracked lines at the top of Wildcat. We
skied the first pitch floating through the powder with huge smiles on
are faces. Randy got some shots for his Resort Sports Network (RSN) show, and Kristian got some
shots for his website. Then we ditched the cameras and
ripped down a few open powder and pillow lines. I had no choice but
to hoot and holler like a little kid. At the end of the day we all
agreed that the snow was great, but we still need more. We also agreed
that we were all a little rusty. Either way, it is definitely by far
the best day any of us have had in at least five months! Did I mention
it’s ski season?
