Winter is on the way. I just ordered my new kit for this season. I am getting The Ride Machete, Contraband binding, and Deuce boot. It looks way sick. Can't wait for it to arrive!!! I will post some pics when it gets here. Also hoping to get the Ride Slackcountry for my powder board. Let it snow. Should have some some snow roll in tomorrow.

So I started a new job today at Who new work could be so fun!!! I am going to be a gearhead for them, so basically I will just be answering questions about snowboards and mountain bikes and stuff. Plus the employee perks are super rad!!!!!

Me, Jessie, and my Dad went up Monday to put together the camp site. We excavated, then erected the condo. We collected tons of firewood. And we posted off where the water is so we can dig right to it this year. It was a super fun day.

The Condo

Here is the material all taken apart and ready to take up to the camp site to build. We are heading up tomorrow to assemble and get camp ready to go before winter sets in hard.

So I am making some pretty major changes to my plans for the future. At least for the next few years. I have decided to go to school. I had started college about 6 years ago when I worked at Qwest but quickly dropped out after 2 weeks. I was not motivated at all. I felt succesful enough in my work I guess I just didn't feel it important to do the whole school thing. However since the economy tanking I have taken a new look at things. I have not been working since Oct 2 and it's been nice to just have some time to think about stuff. I am excited for my new future and what it may bring.

New Addition for Winter Camp This Year

So for the past almost 19 years since we have been winter camping we have either slept under the stars or just put up a tent when weather was bad. But this year we are building a nice little shack. This is a pic of it with a couple of the walls put together. It will be lined with roofing paper and everything to ensure no water gets in. We will fill it with about a foot deep of straw for insulation. Monday or Tuesday if the weather holds we are going to take it up in pieces and assemble it up at the camp site so its ready to roll. During the winter it will be under up to 15 feet or more of snow, so we will need to dig steps down into the entry. It's going to be totally out of the wind and the elements. Should be pretty sick!!! I will get some pics after we put it up and then post more when winter hits.

The B

Me and Tucker went to the Burton Premier tonight. It was super good. Lots of good riding. Crazy to see how much progression happens every single year. When you think that it just can't get any better it does.

Pics of Snowbird Today!!!

Fall is here and it is looking a bit more like Winter up at the bird. Take a peek of some lucky folks who hiked for some turns today!

Ken Blocks New Backcountry Access

Couple snowmobilers up at Gaurdsman Pass caught this footage of Ken Block in his rally car with a few modifications heading up into the Utah backcountry. Sickest thing I have seen in a while for sure!!!

Yesterday we had a nice fall storm come in and dump some snow over the Wasatch! Me and Tucker couldn't help but head up at lunch. We hit the Alta parking lot and played around a bit. There was about 3 or 4 inches and still snowing!!!
