Winter Comes Early To Alta

Location: Alta, UT
Date: October 7, 2007
New Snow: 30" (last 7 days)
Crew: Myself (Jake Kirshner), Adrian Lazo, Josh Matta, Tim Romano, Jason True

Some people will explain Alta's insane pre-season snowfall is due to cyclical weather patterns and cold fronts from the Pacific Northwest. I have a far more logical explanation, my 20th birthday is in 2-days and this is obviously a present from Ullr the Norse God of all things winter!

Early worm gets the powder.

In Baldy We Trust.

Tim, befuddled by this October pow.

Jason, charging on his green machines.

I get a powder skirt.

Josh practices some parallel turns.

Adrian goes into the deep.

Winter has arrived in the Wasatch.

Judging by the forecast, it would appear Ullr is not done with the snow.
