Altabird Landing Zone

Location: Alta/Snowbird, UT
Date: January 13-14, 2008
New Snow: 61" (last 7 days)
Crew: Myself (Jake Kirshner), Dan Cudlip

Utah's light, dry, fluffy snow is good for a lot of things. It's good for holding your turns, finding nirvana, and burying your equipment, but as Dan Cudlip and I found out on this awesome mid-January day, it is best for landing in.

Dan rides away from his waterfall under Alta's Collins Lift

I spot my landing off of punk rock under the Wildcat Chair

Mineral Basin's opening means I found soft landings at Snowbird.

Dan does some bushwacking off the Floral Cliffs.

I nail the shot off of Gadzoom's Glory Rock.

Another classic Utah pow day comes to an end.

More snow on the horizon means more airtime for the Snowbird crew!
