Utah snowboarding trip

March 2006

HomeFamily photosFamily videosJake's webResources

Once again I had an absolutely incredible time on my annual snowboarding trip with Ken.  This year we chose the familiar Wasatch mountains of Utah and were rewarded with great snow conditions (four blue bird powder days)!  Arne and Molly showed us fantastic hospitality as well as joining Ken, John and I for a couple of days in the back country.  We were able to knock off my old favorite on Tuskarora called "Three Chute", as well as a new favorite, Superior's Cardiac bowl.  A run down Silver fork to Big Cottonwood and laps on Pioneer ridge at Brighton rounded out the trip.  It was also nice to see old friends still living in Salt Lake, as well as revisiting happy memories of younger days.
