Glad ya enjoyed it! Sun finally came out for a few days. Crowds weren't too bad for ya I bet. Heading up to meet my summer boss to go out a side country gate and do some skinning. A year ago today I was visiting Steamboat and had the most epic powder day of my life. ...

Gotta love inversion mornings. Cloudy in town and at the base, but once you get past mid-mountain, it's clear and sunny. Keeps the crowds off the mountain early. Made two or three fast groomer laps and then ski'd an awesome lower mountain zone at Steamboat for first time. Found a bunch of gnarly...

You're adding a lot of travel to make it to Loveland for that day. Not far away but you're having to deal with the tunnel or Loveland pass. ...

:lol: If I didn't pull that move, I wouldn't have been first chair. And I like being first chair. It was a split second decision and it paid off. My GoPro actually fell off on impact of that big air at the end. I landed it with a big impact, so I guess my knee hit the GoPro chesty mount and ...

Honestly, I just clip my segments on my phone and plug them into the GoPro app "Quik". It has a few preset video types to choose from and makes a pretty good baseline edit to work with. I tweak it for awhile but the app does a lot of the early work. I don't wanna spend hours on an edit, so it's ...

There was a weather advisory that mentioned roof avalanches. That's when you know it's getting real. Our roof is ready to break real soon. So much snow around town now. Gonna go make some night skiing laps tonight. Take out some long carver skis from the shop and rip it up. ...

Nah. Nothing that actually looked that big but I just sent it hard and the landing drops out. Only bout 15-20 feet if ya stood on top and dropped it there. I felt like at my apex I was close to 30-35 feet oft the ground. I was heavy on adrenaline so measurements could be way off. Dumping at the ...

I missed the Steamboat course so I might join ya. We got a hell of an interesting snowpack to study this year. Finally slowed down getting views on that instagram video. It was crushing views for like 5 days. Just shy of 20k. I...

Pretty epic. Heavy surfy snow but deep in spots. Pretty empty and able to get fresh snow most of the day. Gonna ski the Beave tomorrow and then hopefully make it back up to the Boat but we'll see with the snow. Almost lost my GoPro when I sent something way bigger than anticipated. Landed it but...

I was told to take Chair 6 to 11 and ski the lift line under 11 first thing. Gonna make it out to Blue Sky shortly there after. I'm out of my element in Vail. There's so much to ski. ...

Vail Pass closed because of avalanche on I70 near Copper. On the bus to Vail Village. Should make first chair. McDonald's breakfast was almost double what I pay for the same order in Steamboat. Vail so fancy. ...

It's nice. When I'm into a game, it's still just as intense as before. But I couldn't tell ya anything about our recruiting, stats, schedule next year, etc. Plus 80% of Bama games are boring as frick. This game was awesome to watch. Keeps me wanting that undefeated championship season again. I'm ...

College football is so different living in Colorado. I watch the games and then they exit my mind. That game got my blood going. But I'm going to bed and gonna try and catch first bus into Vail tomorrow. Got two days off and a storm coming in. A Bama loss is healed very quickly come tomorrow mor...
