Yesterday I went up to the Canyons with Witt Foster and Saga Friends Brady Perron and Sam Webb to hit the 196″ Box named Boxzilla. It was a fun day the box was much easier for snowboarders to hit, I 50/50 it and actually made it to the end. Hennie VJ was there filming for us so he made an edit of the day which is down below for you to watch.
Today we got a little bit of new snow to play with here in Utah. Unfortunately it was 19 degrees out so we couldn’t play very long, my feet wouldn’t allow it. So instead of going to PC today I went to ski for free after three at Alta for a few good runs. Then after that I went snurfing in a park. All in all it I had a good time in my new vadar jacket and varsity pants!!
I am taking a foundation drawing class for school this semester and I had to do a two point view/ Perspective study. We pretty much got to choose what we were drawing, so I chose the photo of Angeli Vanlaanen from an issue of Freeskier magazine that was lying around my house. I had to draw everything boxy and show the plane changes, I'm so happy with how it turned out! weee
So I am skiing with my older brother Tim on Saga this season. I'm very excited about it they have the best outerwear and it actually fits! yay. Anyway, I will be posting updates on the Saga Blog this season and I will try to keep this one up as well, but more people look at the Saga Blog than they look at my personal blog. So go check them out!
Here are a few photos that I put up on a post a while back of October skiing!
Hope you had a Happy Halloween, Brady and I sure did!
On Wednesday I went up into Guardsman's with a crew of friends and we played around in the minimal amount of snow that is up there! It was great we made due with what was there and had a great time. Plus I got to put my skis on which I haven't done since I broke my collar bone, and also the fact that it was summer it definitely got me more excited for the coming season! Like always...here are some photos: I'm in the purple and red!
Thanks to Facebook, about 20 people have posted the NOAA weather report for the Salt Lake City area next week, and apparently we're supposed to get a boat load of snow, I for one am quite excited for this but would like to take this moment to show what I did for this past weekend.
one thing we did was a lot of hiking, this hike down here is the mormon trail, its the trail that the founders of the Mormon religion used to hike into the salt lake valley and set up camp for a while. It's a gorgeous hike especially now that all the tree
s are turning colors.
The dizzy shot.
This is the group shot.
The majestic shot.
We even got a sunset shot. (on a different hike)
Played some soccer, with no shoes
and had a birthday bbq/bonfire
and it was good, now bring the snow and let it stay!!
So last February my good friend Kim Pickel and I drove from Salt Lake City to Boise to visit my dad who was visiting on a business trip. I drove up to meet him because Boise is closer to me than were my dad lives, which is East of the Mississippi, so we made the trip. On the return drive back though we passed the Oscar Meyer: Weiner Mobile! I never made a post about it and just found the photos on my computer, and your not gonna make a post about passing the Oscar Meyer: Weiner Mobile! ha-enjoy!
Rearview shot, doesn't really make it look like it's closer than it actually is.
I went for a hike up to Twin Lakes a few days ago to search for my boyfriend's ski he lost this winter, we thought it would be easy looking for a purple, yellow and white ski, but we ended the day unsuccessful. We might not have found the ski but it was still a good time! We ended up throwing rocks off the cliffs, its very exciting seeing them break into pieces and tumble in different directions, even more so when your standing bellow them (but not in their pathway) watching them come at you, it's crazy! My friend Paul Braunstein took this photo, it turned out pretty nice!
I just got back to Utah after a crazy past two months. I went commercial (set net) fishing in Egegik, AK it was basically a month in the middle of nowhere with lots and lots of fish. We didn't get to rest very much, fishing two tides a day makes for 12-18 hour days and you learn to enjoy sleeping in and afternoon naps. Then when i was finished with fishing i went to Mt. Hood for a few great days on the snow. The last day wasn't as enjoyable as the rest seeing as how I broke my collarbone on the big jump. It sucks but it's improving, however I'm sick of wearing a sling. So I'm keeping this short since typing with one hand is slow and annoying! So enjoy the photos!! until next time... have a nice day!
Before I head up to my summer job of commercial fishing in Alaska, I got a few days of skiing in at Mt Hood with the surface team. I've only had two days to ski so far day one was just hot lapping through the public park, which is very well put together my favorite feature they had up was a fairly poppy jump with a tree in the middle of the knuckle that you could do taps, tree grabs, and just about anything you want. Then for day two we hiked out to a step up but due to the intense heat and lack of snow the in-run had a giant patch of dirt. So we all agreed that a step down would be easier and faster to build plus we didn't need a lot of speed which is nice because it worked out. The landing had an annoying compression but we worked through it.
Here are some photos from day two check it:
I'd like to thank Jason Eichhorst for letting me use these photos their great!
you should go and look at his other photos and stuff here:
I skied with Surface today at Mt Hood and it was such a fun day, I didn't get any photos but you can see some that were put up on the Surface blog. It was bundles of fun and if you get a chance to go I suggest you take the opportunity to head on out to Oregon for the summer snow. it's worth it. Surface blog Click me
