I’ll never forget the feeling…or the view. Getting off the tram that friday morning at the summit of one of Brighton’s peaks was an exhilarating experience. Being from NY, I’ve gotten pretty accustomed to long lines, short runs and icy terrain. Utah was something else. As I stood 11,000 feet high overlooking Utah’s mountains, I thought to myself, how could it possibly get any better than this. Before us was a good half foot of light, fresh, champagne powder that had fallen over night and a gigantic open bowl that felt the size of the grand canyon. I could literally ride half a mile horizontally each way and not be obstructed by boundaries. Utah claims they have the greatest snow on earth and after spending one weekend there, I am definitely a believer. This was in APRIL mind you. We were lucky to have great conditions and got a chance to visit three great resorts in Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude.
There are certain moments in everyone’s lives where they feel completely in utter peace. This was one of those moments.
