Day One - Ski Season Starts at Brian Head

Yesterday, Brian Head opened for the season. Conditions were EPIC. Two runs on manmade snow. Snowboarders that sat 15 wide across top of the runs gawking and watching as the other snowboarders that were halfway decent. The rest would wait and then ride down missing every jump but cutting off anyone that did want to hit anything.

You always want to set the tone for the season right. And Jake did just that. First run, getting off the lift. Took a header. So for the entire season, he gets to hear it.

Not a lot of skiing to enjoy, but it was still a day on skis. I took a good fall off of a rainbow. And man is ice hard. You know, it isn't a glass is half full or glass is half empty situation. After seven months, it certainly wasn't a bluebird powder day, but it was a start to the season. And it still felt good.
