It seems like this is the snow season that never ends, I’m not complaining because I love it.  I woke up yesterday to two inches of snow at my house in Sandy, UT.  Late April and May have been good to us in Utah.  My only problem is my normal touring partners have hung up their boards and skis and turned to biking and climbing.

May 1st, Cruising up White Pine

May 4th, PM patrol

May 11th, lunch time pow run down Lone Tree at Alta

May 14th, looking down down the Cirque at Snowbird

May 22nd, looking down a chute on lower Baldy that has filled in with all the late season snow

May 23rd, my wife, Melissa, finally had a day off so we got out for a late morning tour into Alta.  We went up  to the top of Baldy and dropped in towards the Sugarloaf lift.

Looking back on the Pfeifferhorn and Coal Pit Headwall

The funniest rope tow video ever…

May 24th, hi hoe, hi hoe another 9″ of snow… :) and up to Baldy we go.  Mike, Lauren and I got a late afternoon tour up to the shoulder of Baldy.
I don’t own a helmet cam, so I shot this video by holding my cell phone in my mouth… I call it mouth cam :)  Not the best video, but it shows the good late season snow.
