Sally from Skiing Magazine taking full advantage of the 10" of fresh Utah powder.
This last week I attended OR (outdoor retailers) Winter Tradeshow as a press member for GearJunkie.com. We scoped the latest/greatest from all the outdoor industry companies. The first day was a "demo day" where we could test out new skis, boards, snowshoes, etc... I mostly spent the day boarding the 10" of fresh powder that had fallen overnight in the Wasatch Mnt. Range just outside Salt Lake City, UT.
Our backcountry guide (forgot his name) took good care of us.
We had the honor of attending a press tour of an untracked bowl of powder outside the ski resort boundary. but first we had to "skin" up to the bowl from the valley. After a sweaty climb we were treated to some amazingly fluffy, untracked powder! It was DEVINE! It was without a doubt the best snowboarding experience of my life--even though it was over in less than a minute. Split-boards allow we boarders to see the backcountry under our own power now. I heart powder.
More Show stuff to come, but I had to share these images first. Thank you Utah for showing me a good time --I'll be back!
