I've always wanted to learn to board, but I think I'm getting to old for that stuff now. Did you get in pics????

I'll stick with extreme motorsports instead.

I loved the Lone Peak! Its most certainly different snow than the West Coast snow I am used too. Going down that main chute (is it called "big colour" or something) on the face of the mountain is pretty extreme though

Yea, one of the days, the wind at the top was 50 + MPH, temp was 20 below zero, and visability was nothing -- Certainly not the weather conditions I'm used to here in Seattle

Didn't make it to Bridger Bowl, though we talked about going. It worth it? Maybe next time.

bridger isnt quite as extreme, but has more usable trees and slopes that hold powder and more untouched powder that you dont have to hike to get to......it is well worth it, especially on a week day.
