First Turns of the Season


So this last storm did leave over a foot of snow on the higher elevations in the basin. It was just enough snow to make some turns if you were careful and knew where to look. Here are a few shots from my first day on snow this year 11/3/08. The snow was about a foot and a half of heavy early season snow that should make a nice solid base.

Cody can see where he's going in this flat light because he is wearing the Smith I/O

 In these pictures, Cody can see in the flat light because he could switch to his low light lens in seconds with the Smith I/O goggle, and is dry and comfortable after hiking in a snowstorm because he is wearing the Cloudveil RPK softshell with Icebreaker base layers. Overall, it was a nice day to kick off the season. Keep checking back for more updates when we get more snow.

The snow was surprisingly good.
