Wow. I've been bad-mouthing Mother Nature all season long but she sure has given me a double helping of shut the fuck up this Spring, especially in May. With my work schedule on "shoulder season" status I've been able to act on nearly every opportunity. Blessed.

Here's a little batch of photos from the month of May, click on 'em to get a better look.

It hasn't been just all backcountry this Spring, plenty of laps at the Bird thanks to LungieLand and his mom

Been cruising around Alta with London and Brant a lot, nice to have a tour guide in foreign territory

London has been charging it toughly this winter

Hmm... that's weird

These late storms have been making for some beautiful conditions

Silver Bullets are delicious

Gotta love it when your truck looks like this coming out of the bar after a full day of touring

Unreal how green it is down in the Valley

I've done countless runs down this but never with the entire Cirque untouched. Magic.

Took a trip to Idaho, the mountains there look like the teeth on a saw or something...

This is what your room ends up looking like when all you do is sleep and dry out gear there as you pass through

Back from Idaho one night and right back on it with Andrew Miller. There was no one around anywhere this day, people are over it.

London got this for her birthday... and a bunch of out of state beer

Hmm... guess they were bummed we tracked the Upper Cirque on that last cycle, hehe...

Happy Birthday London!

Gotta get it while the gettin' is good this time of year

Zach Clanton breaking trail across the Scary Traverse

Had to poach this shot of me that Clanton took, dropping in at 8 am, May 25, 2010

Yup, that's powder, and it's almost June

I love it up here

Our lines down the nose on the far right from the Black Knob and sneaking through the rocks down low

This slide happened just as we were driving away, a sign of how incredibly late in the season it really is!

Cinco de Shred

With yet another late season storm in the Wasatch (7 feet in 4 days?!?!) it seemed appropriate to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a little "Cinco de Shred"! Ian and I went out with special guest London riding shotgun on my sled for a few thousand feet of mariachi goodness down a slide path as smooth as a Mexican brew. I wasn't planning on making an edit until about half way through the day but this is what I came up with. Odelay holmes!
