Sure enough, north of the border snowflakes were falling at a rate that makes driving in a straight line an extreme sport! Truckin' through the night to get in position was a risky ordeal, but well worth the effort.

 

Our first few days consisted of exploring pillow zones around tree line while clouds and new snow kept the mountains out of sight and out of reach.

It has been so sick having the weather and stability to get up high and check out the alpine. After three years exploring this place we finally got to stand on some summits! Without a stable snowpack, you can't get very far up there.

 

Above the clouds, finally.

Park City, UT

Born and raised in Connecticut, the icy slopes of the East Coast gave Neil his first taste of Snowboarding. When his family migrated west to Utah, he began to see the potential the mountains had to offer beyond ski resort boundaries and beyond his freestyle background. Ever since cutting his first board in half to make a splitboard, Neil has been a strong advocate for backcountry enjoyment. With his passion for photography, he is able to motivate and inspire the outdoor community through the lens of his camera. ‚Äč
