I was hoping that I would have a chance to edit some of my thanksgiving footage before my final exams snuck up on me.  I failed.  I will get some editing done over Christmas.  Brighton received something like 50" of snow the week of Thanksgiving.  It made for some excellent skiing.  Every lift on the mountain was open by Thanksgiving day.  That does not happen often.  What else does not happen often?  Skiing powder this deep in November. This first picture is from Wednesday, November 24th.  The high temperature that day was -1F.  With wind chill it was dipping down closer to -27F.  It was definitely one of the colder days that Utah sees.  This next shot is from Thanksgiving day.  I rode with Mitch Potter for most of the day that day.  My brother in law, my sister (his wife) and his brother were all too lazy to come up that day.  Boy did they miss out!  Millicent at Brighton opened early and there was plenty of powder, pillows, and cliffs to be had by all.  This picture is from one of my last runs of the day.  It is a little pillow line on Mt. Millicent.  It obviously isn't the steepest or sketchiest pillow line in the world, but it was A LOT of fun!Wish me luck with finals, and keep your eyes out for reviews of the Surface New Life skis, POC receptor helmet, POC Lobes Goggles, POC cornea goggles, Columbia Powder Bowl jacket, and the Backcountry Access Squall pack!  I will have those posted soon!
