Memorial Day 2011 - Thank you Snowbird!

By Powderhound Matt May 31, 2011
Incredible mid-winter conditions as the unofficial start to summer kicks off at Snowbird Resort.

While most folks spent the unofficial start to summer at the beach or at a backyard BBQ those of us who live in Utah got to do what we do best. SKI POWDER! 

As if the conditions at Snowbird weren't already fantastic Friday, Saturday and Sunday mother nature threw a knockout punch last night when she dumped more then a foot of new snow on Snowbird. Back on the first of spring, I posted a blog entitled "Spring you never had a chance", looks like I was right. Now if I could only convince Mother Nature to eliminate summer and send us right back to fall then I will truly believe I've died and gone to heaven. 

On this Memorial Day, I'd also like to give thanks to all of those who have paid the ultimate price and sacrificed their lives protecting us. Without you folks protecting us, days like this wouldn't be possible. Another big thanks for Snowbird Ski Patrol, you folks have really done an incredible job this season, thanks for keeping us safe! After 776" inches of snow I'm sure you guys are ready for a break.
