#16: Snowboard in Utah: Alexi and I flew to Salt Lake City, Utah in April 2009 to go hiking and snowboarding all over the state. We stayed with her friend, Eric, who was an awesome host and tour guide. We hiked and camped in Moab and then spent 2 days snowboarding at Snowbird. It was amazing- the entire trip.
We went snowboarding on Easter Sunday in gorgeous 70 degree weather. The snow was light and powdery and the sky was the most gorgeous shade of blue. The view from the summit was, for lack of a more fitting word, epic. We could see for miles and it was perhaps the most awe-inspiring view I've ever had. (It even made up for the absurd goggle tan lines my face was left with- and by "tan" I mean blistering sunburn.)
I hope I get some snowboarding in this season. Preferably out west because it is so icy on the east coast and I fall- a LOT. Seriously, a lot. Alexi filmed some of my runs and I wish she'd kept the camera on for my falls because they were pretty awesome from what I remember.
