H & I made the decision to get season passes at Snowbird Resort this year instead of our usual got to, Brighton Resort. We definitely wanted to make up for some lost time last year with H being kind of out of commission with his shoulder surgery and me not riding nearly as much as I would have wanted to.
In my opinion, Snowbird has some the steepest, longest, and best terrain around, so it's no wonder why we decided to throw down our money to play at this resort. I love Snowbird for many reason's but for one it's where H & I met so of course it's going to hold a little extra meaning for me than just sick pow. As of today, they only had a couple lifts going (Wilber and Peruvian) and of course the Tram which we got to ride due to the lack of chair lifts open, HOORAY! The snow was OK, not the best and not the worst and we surprisingly found a few pockets of powder but we definitely need more snow. It's been so warm lately but I'm very hopeful that we will have a great season.
We are both super stoked and thankful to be riding on this mountain and can't wait for more snow.
Life is such an amazing, precious gift and there is always something to be thankful for. I truly believe that with every negative situation, there is something good to come out of it. It might not be immediate and it might take time to see it, but in my opinion there is a reason for challenging times and I'm grateful to know that things will be OK in the end.
I am so grateful for this life, the experiences, the people, the family and friends, the love, joy, accomplishments and the disappointments, it's all such an incredible journey and I'm happy to be apart of it. I can say without a doubt how blessed I am in so many countless ways. I hope that everyone can focus on all of the good things in life and radiate positive energy, not just during the holiday season but everyday.
Have you ever looked up to the top of some of the smaller foothill peaks on the Wasatch Front and said, "I want to climb that?" Well H & I often look up mountains and say, "Lets find a way to the top." We started from the parking lot of Neffs Canyon and decided to hike up the north facing foothills that were getting hit with the sun. There was no trail to follow so we literally started hiking straight up the mountain and navigating our way through semi-steep terrain and dead brush. An easy outing that didn't take much time at all but was fun nonetheless. Another beautiful November morning.
As I'm writing this post and looking over our photo's I am so grateful for the experiences that H & I were able to have on this trip. This truly was a life changing trip for me as it shed light on area's where I needed to make huge changes in my life (which I have and will continue to strive for everyday). This world is such an amazing place and I feel so lucky to be apart of it and fortunate enough to explore it. I hope everyone can find the pure joy and happiness that I feel and love and appreciate the beauty all around. Life is simply beautiful. Get out and explore.
