Summer Ski Videos – 2009

Wake up early.  Eat eggs and bacon.  Skis and gear in the car.  Drive.  Pick up Steve, or meet Wills, or Mike, or Todd, or whoever I’ve managed to convince to join me.  Hike.  With skis and boots and everything lashed to my pack.  Finally reach the snow.  Start skinning.  Finally reach the couloir.  Skis back on the pack.  Start booting straight up.  Get to the top.  Eat.  Enjoy the ride down…

In the never ending quest to ski all year, I had some fun excursions this summer.  For the sake of thoroughness, we’ll start back in the middle of May when it feels like summer here in SLC.

May 13th and 16th – Baldy Chutes

Memorial Day – Deseret Peak – Big breaks his leg and we carry him out of the backcountry.

June – Annual Cold Fusion Couloir Bike/Ski, Mt. Timpanogos

June – Hayden Peak Couloir, Uintas w/ Wills

July – Gunsight.  Skiing was meh.
