May-ry Xmas or May-Day, May-Day!

Do April showers really bring May flowers? Hard to tell this year because the showers in April were snow, not rain, and the May flowers so far have been buried by fresh powder. With BBQ season on hold, what better thing to do than load up the sleds, boards and the pow snow skate and hit one of our favorite zones, the Snake Farm. We rallied at Pashley's house, went over our "safety procedures" and went for it. It was a little dry on the ride out to the zone but it was so worth it. Awesome pow, a fun wishbone tree slide and crazy tricks on the snow skate. Epic May-Day!


Highway to Heber, May 1st? Seriously?

Pash hauls up the pow snow skate, this thing is SO FUN

Siebs feels 10 lbs lighter after chunking a backcountry deuce

High alpine safety meeting

It must have been really cold up there, look at Siebs "breath"!

This was the most perfect pow snow skate run I've seen, and we milked it

My line, no big deal

Snow surfing? Pash goes off the top like Andy Irons...

...and very nearly rode away from this airwalk. Check back for a link some dope sequences

Heber looking pretty green down there

Well, I guess we didn't keep it safe enough cuz Pash wiped out and I ran over him... with his own sled

Next stop: Heber Valley Medical Center! Yeah!

I think Pash was more upset that I ruined his favorite beanie with blood stains

With friends like me, who needs enemies?

After a stop at the best Mex in UT, Tarahumarrah, Pash's head started bleeding a little again so we went to the hospital and left with a half-dozen staples. Awesome.
