Snowboarding | Brian Head, Utah

Welcoming back the West Coast, I made a New Years trip to Brian Head, Utah.  There was a wonderful snow the day before I arrived, which dumped five foot of power in some areas!  Being a snowboarder this is like finding a gold coin in your change.  My snowboarding mentor happened join us that weekend, and of course we had to hike through the “BACKCOUNTRY GATE,” which made for the best boarding of all!   I tried to take a bunch of pictures, and I hope you enjoy.  It was a wonderful trip and it looks like I’m heading up again this weekend.  Enjoy the gorgeous views!
