Snowbird: Stuntin' is a Habit

Well, the yearly sadness of Utah resorts closing for the season is upon us. Most of them sit on National Forrest land and are required by their permits to close at a certain date. However, with all the snow that's falling this "spring" it sure makes it a bitter pill to swallow. The one saving grace of this heartbreak is Snowbird, that's right, private land bitches! So since my Canyons pass is not even worth the plastic it's printed on any longer it was time to hit Little Cottonwood Canyon with Biittner, Deadlung, DJ Knucklz and the rest of the crew at a place I like to call "home": Snowbird.

Bird locs are straight up bad ass. Matt "Jr." Jelm gets one last lazy front flip over some not so soft landings before heading to AK and "Man Camp"

Jr again, roast beef three, just riding, no big deal

See way over there? Yeah, that's where we been hiking, check the posts son

Just some Budda Monks giving The Adventure Capitalist thumbs up from the tram dock. Blessed homey, blessed.

Bev and Stacey are down with the Adventure Cap too

Dusty Kilbourne, "The Southern Gentleman", mean Indy off the Chips cat. Check for some more guest photos from Dusty later in this post

Look! A gangster snow thug with Superior and Stacey in the backdrop! Photo: Dusty

Yeah, my old knees can still take a tough landing, fool. Photo: Dusty

This is what happens when you don't totally clear a rope ollie, nice Knucklz

Monday was a little breezy, almost got blown off the chair, check the vid below, whatevs

Here's another Bird loc badass, Dave Surrey over the Mini-Moto WAY before it softened up. One run and done....

Fun on the tram, nice locks Biittner

Dealung decided he doesn't like hip hop anymore, he's starting a Misfits cover band

Monday, the day after almost every resort in UT closed, Biittner, Lung and Knux rule the empty Snowbird tram

Not just another couple of pretty faces, Deadlung and Knux

There was a fun fly-out jump at the bottom of Blackjack Gulley. It boosted you WAY up there and you landed on flat, glue-like slush but is was goodtimes! Biittner boosting

Deadlung with a big 'ol Japan fly-out to flat

Hi! I'm The Adventure Capitalist! If you saw this guy on the Plaza, would you run?

On the way home Knux thought he saw some fools frontin' on us so he drew his piece
