Although I prefer to ski, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do! For me that was mounting up my brothers snowboard and taking it up for my first pow day of the year. During a 2 day period, Utah was pummeled by a snow storm from the south-west. 2-6 feet was deposited in an instant. Since I didn't have any skis at the time, I eagerly grabbed the 164 Jones Experience mid-wide and learned how to surf the pow. It was all time, and probably ranks up there as some of the best pow days of my life!I've also been testing out the GoPro HD. Its a fine little camera that allows me to slam it against a tree, drop it off the lift, or lose it all together. I can't do any of that with my canon!HDHD
