17 degrees, there couldn’t be better conditions for a vegetable oil road trip to the mountains. Quick top off and we were ready to go.

Here is a quick glimpse of my controller showing extremely cold temps pulling out of the driveway. Just three miles from home my coolant temp reached 170 degrees and I drove 28 miles to Brighton Ski Resort on really cheap fuel.

To show how I am truly devoted to cutting carbon emissions. I picked up a hitch hiker just trying to get some of his own turns in. As we pulled into the parking lot our conversation of how many murders have been in the canyon ceased. Both of our jaws dropped as we were greeted by 26″ of freshly fallen snow.

I met up with local photographer Jake Lawlor and since my ACL is torn and surgery is monday, I shoot this photo of him jumping of one of our go to inbounds spots. I think it was a nice change for him to get some runs in instead of feeling like he was obligated to take photos.

Knowing this was my last day to ride Brighton this season I skipped lunch and hiked Claytons peak with some of the diggers. Here Mouse, Cody, and Spencer disappear into the aspen abyss returning to Brighton.

You can’t see mouse behind my spray but I assure you he is there. He was smiling which resulted in choking on some snow.

With plenty of daylight left Mouse and I meet up with Ben a digger who was missing in action early that day. The three of us hiked pioneer ridge. As we reached the summit we shouted down to the park crew working hard digging out the features. Experiencing some of the deepest turns of the day we went back for another run. Thats when ben found something to jump off.

Yes my truck started back up ready to go home. Leaving the mountains and smell of french fries behind all we could think about was the 80 mile journey to Powder Mountain the following morning.
