Yesterday I watched it snow all day in Steamboat as I caught up on work. Today I knew I’d be able to ride the morning by doing a late start at work. In the last 24 hours it had snowed 16+ inches, reports said 16 inches…I heard 27 inches by the end of the day.

There were freshies around every corner, in every tree run just waiting for you today.
Andrew grabbed some photos of me riding in the trees. If you look closely I’m wearing my facemask with the tongue sticking out, I have too much fun with that thing.
I rode with the vholdr goggle cam before I had to work. I had one really good fall that I took out of the film but you basically see me crashing and the camera flipping over.
I spent today on the Never Summer Lotus with reverse camber and man…there was too much snow for that deck today. I really had to lean back and had a lot of moments where I was nose diving on it. It’s a 157cm and too short for a powder day like this but it was all I had.
