Utah, ringing in the New Year right with by god John Huff

Utah January 1-6 2008, a whole new crew and experiences!

(I'll add new pictures as soon as everyone else emails them to me)

I'm ready for a spring trip to Wolf Creek and Monarch with this crew, I'm jumping the gun here? Sorry, read on.

We started out in Denver, drove to Salt Lake, Met up with by god John Huff and the fun began. Ryan flew in and we picked him up, when Ryan's around it's always a good time. We had a blast over the four days in Utah. The first three days were short on snowfall but keeping tried and true in the Utah tradition we found some great snow at Solitude and Powder Mountain. On the last day we went back to Powder with an exciting ride provided by none other than John Huff in the worlds largest vehicle and were treated to a foot day of some of the best riding you can ever hope for. Brugman skied some of the best powder in his life and summed it all up by saying, "Joe Bob, do you see those seven tracks off that lift, yeah, those are all mine bro, all mine, holy Sh** I'm the only person skiing that." Huff found the meaning of fat skis, leaning back, and letting it ride, and did GREAT, sorry about his bad technique on the groomers Gatlinburg but he's a powder man now. The rest of us just wish we were skiing that type of snow everyday, even the Colorado boys (Jeremy and Joe), there is always next year.

Huff finding the true meaning of Fat Skis and loving it!

John Huff after riding the powder bus, nice.

Sometimes you just have to chill.

Is John Huff cold?

Maybe he is just looking for the fire, it's in the lodge.
