Mammoth 12/21/10

21 Dec, 2010

I’m addicted to coffee.  Maybe because I grew up in Seattle but I love coffee.  However nothing beats waking up and starting the day than getting fresh powder turns.  I’d gladly trade in all the coffee for fresh tracks in the morning.  I woke up to bluebird skies which meant an amazing powder morning on the mountain and when my co-worker Ashley mentioned going out for a couple fresh tracks, I was game.

Early this morning only a couple lifts were open so we hit up the gondola then headed to chair #2 then back to the gondola for the morning.  It was idealic outside, sunny skies and lots of untouched powder on the mountain.

I tried to get some powder shots but really what shows everything is the vholdr helmet cam I was wearing.  So I made a video with two runs that we did.  I love powder turns!

Ashley snapped this photo of me spraying up some powder from her footage on the flip camera on a stick.  It was rad to see her footage at the end of the day and how it looks from that angle.

Ashley rocking the flip camera with the ski pole holding it behind her.

Got the new Smith I/OS in the mail yesterday and brought them out onto the snow for the first test day.  Gotta love the lenses, badass!
