Alta in Jan 08- 1st ski trip of the season

Chicky chicky ya!!! So i finally made it up to Alta for the first ski trip of the season. i’ve been waiting for the ski resort to get a 100 inch base, which happened this week, so Saturday me and jared headed up. The conditions were perfect, with 6 inches of new powder everywhere, hardly any long lifts lines. With both of us strapped in with our new helmets ( which i always use after my crash two years ago) and ipods set with great tunes (my playlist was a cool mix of Ben harper, Wilco, Pearl Jam, and Coldplay) we were set to go.

After 15 runs though, we both were beat. I guess no matter how much you workout, age just kicks your trash. But, I hope that after this season, i’ll have improved not only my skill, but my endurance. More to come in the coming weeks. keep the snow falling!
