It's flying!!!!! snowHead

Resorts..late season I'm gone in the BC. When its too deep for that I have a VAIL resorts season pass and stay near base of heavenly, so I ride there the majority of the high season. After that I spend a handful of days riding mammoth, alpine meadows, and squaw.

Favorite run...?depends

Season goals...ride a couple 14ers.
