Past logs for 2002
(11th calendar year
of non-stop skiing)

Dec '02, 123rd month: Skied Pennsylvania's Blue Mountain with "The Cooperman." Blue Mtn. is off to a great start. They got 8-10" right before we skied it, which was double last year's entire season snowfall! Needless to say we enjoyed great eastern skiing.
DINMS, his dad, and Vinman also came to town for a good time at Snowbird.

Nov 2002: I couldn't catch Brighton's opener on the 8th, but I skied my first day on the 15th with Bruce and Ryan. Alta opened on the 20th with grim conditions. Joined phUnk and Crossover for a couple of runs. WE NEED SNOW!!

Oct 2002, Month 121:
The 11th year begins....
The snow just started dumping on Little Cottonwood Canyon the night of Sept. 30th, and continued steadily enough to accumulate up to 3 feet in the Baldy Chutes within the next couple of days.
Dozens of maniacs dropped everything and headed up the canyon, behaving as if the season was already in full swing. According to Snowbird personnel, I was the only skier on the Snowbird side (aside from an early morning photo shoot by the patrol shack).
Conditions on my side of Baldy were heavy and set-up, with difficult turns. The guys who made the decision to do the other side of Baldy had deep, light powder in the more protected chutes.
Oh well, I decided that it was worth it for the exercise.

It hardly seems possible that a whole decade has gone by, looking back on it now.
Mikey and I celebrated the occasion under crystal clear, perfect blue skies.
We skied from start to finish on exquisitely textured snow, while enjoying a nice, brisk, westerly wind.
Of course, the experience would not have been complete if we hadn't ended our day with a huckleberry shake and pie combo from Government Camp--that was a given.

Aug '02: Had the pleasure of two Hood trips this August. Phenomenal conditions on both trips.
Early in the month about a dozen of us ski freaks (who met on an internet message board) got together at Mt. Hood for what we called a mini-Summit. As can be seen in the photos, a very good time was had.

July '02, 118th month:
Scott Taylor went with me to the Bird for some 4th of July celebrating. It's been so hot in the valley that the local media was quite interested in reporting on our little excursion.
There was a surprising amount of snow remaining--we were actually able to ski the entire length of 'Old Reliable', as well as the dependable 'Pipeline Bowl'.

April '02: Had some great powder days this month. Alta closed with 555" for the season on April 28th--apparently their latest close EVER.
Finally got Scott's brother Bobby Taylor out on the slopes one day at Deer Valley.
Beautiful spring day at Deer Valley

Mar '02: Scotty and I hooked up with Mark and Tara Cobble (England) and Tom Greenall (France) to ski Europe. We skied bits of Chamonix, Zermatt, Grand Montets, Courcheval, Verbier, Val Thorens, Meribel, etc.
Check out the incredible photos from Europe!

Feb 2002, 113th Month: Starting with the torch going through my backyard (literally) and then the opening ceremonies - having the Olympics here brought a special feeling to Salt Lake City, Utah.

Jan, 2002, While skiing in the Big Sky area, Jay, Scott, Bradford, and I were fortunate enough to catch a record 33 inch powder day at Bridger Bowl, Montana. We followed the locals and went crazy. What a deep day! What lucky timing...

Happy New Year Bird Photo Report!!
