It was a hard decision, as I got up this morning...8 new inches of powder at Snowbasin Ski Resortand a perfect "Blue Bird" day for skiing or a beautiful day for a little fly fishing! Well, skiing won out, as probably the last of the good powder storms couldn't be denied! In 1995, Salt Lake City was awarded the 2002 Olympic Winter Games and Snowbasin was chosen as the venue for the men's and women's downhill, super G and combined races. It's a great resort. So, I called up my friend, Melanie and we headed north to work out our quads and thighs in the deep powder. Whew! I had a good workout, that's for sure. And it couldn't have been a more beautiful day...37 degrees and sunny...Seemed like 50 degrees as we were going at a pretty good pace today! Covered a lot of terrain...The ridge where I am standing is about 9300 ft. and overlooks a huge Ogden Valley down below on the other side. You can see Antelope Island smack in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. A fun day...sure feeling my quads right now!
Area Boundary...Yeah, no kidding!!!
Yeah, I made kind a mess of the mountain!! (There is a figure 8 in there somewhere) Heehee
Melanie and Mrs. Claus!! (From last year...didn't get a pic today)
My favorite side of the resort with the Weber River in the distance...BIG Browns!
And back to the REGULARLY SCHEDULED "Fish Tuesday" until December 2011...next week!
