On again, off again, ON AGAIN!!

Snowbird got 18 inches of new snow today, they are supposed to get 7-12 tonight and 4-8 tomorrow.

If I were you I'd be checking craigslist and ksl for cheap ass tickets, that's what I did.

On another note, this will be my last pow day for a very long time, a very very long time as I will be living in Chicago for the next 3 years. Hello Raging Buffalo!

We built a concrete quarterpipe in the back yard and had a barbeque. Then we had a campfire.

Happy Birthday Rich Wheeler

I've known Rich since I was born, reason being, he is my cousin. I know him well, and I'm happy to say he is one of my very best friends. Rich is a wonderfully caring and outstanding human being. He is always looking out for the ones he cares about, and isn't hesitant to surprise them when they least expect it; putting some joy in their life. He knows how to have a great time in whatever it is he's doing.
Rich is always on the look out for a deal, a trait I think comes from our grandfather. When you have a business question or you'd like advise on running or starting up a little business venture, Rich is the guy to talk to. He knows his stuff. He is the guy be behind the scenes, and also the TM at Animal Farm, I know I wouldn't want to see anyone other than him in that position. Well it's your day Rich, I just wanted to say I love you, and I know I speak for all at the Farm here as well when I say, thank you for all your kind gestures and support always! Happy Birthday Rich!!

A couple recent Celtek vids...

Have had the chance to do a couple of little video projects for Celtek lately. Really this is just a poor way for me to try and get a few of our 12 blog followers to check these out, which half are our close friends who have already probably seen them. Anyway Ted spits a little knowledge about his year in the team update video. Give a gander.

Happy Birthday Benjamin Littler!

It's Ben's Birthday today! Being my best friend, and having grown up with him I can say I know him quite well. He is one of the most caring and compassionate people I know. If you see him and he doesn't have a smile on his face or isn't enjoying himself consider yourself lucky because this is an extremely rare occurrence. To say the least the kid is one of the happiest people I have ever been around. He's able to make life meaningful, but not serious, making it a pleasure to be around him. On top of that he is a respectful gentleman.
Ben has done much and lived in many places. He made it through a year in Hollywood, CA at film school, he's traveled back and forth across our fine country numerous times; from Utah, to Washington, and up and down the pacific coast. He has made many great videos and is extremely talented with his words. I am a lucky soul to have been exposed to some of his greatness. Ben puts himself in positions to make his life an adventure. Living meagerly, and enjoying everyday he has is one of the many things I love about Ben! Having lived with him for 3 years now, I can say with a passion, I love you Ben, we all do here at the Farm! Happy Birthday my friend!!

One Week Left.

One week left here in Utah. One week for lift serviced riding at Brighton that is. There is still plenty of snow up in the mountains, and being from the east coast where you ride until you have to pond skim, and grass ride to the lifts, it seems strange that they are closing with this much snow. It snowed 97 inches last week!

It's been a great season and I want to thank Ben, Ben, Rich, Sean, Mark, and Torrey for keeping me excited and motivated to keep going up even when the conditions weren't so great, and for waking me up when they were.

Thanks to the Dinobots kids too for being so down to ride with anyone and have fun on anything no matter what.

Thanks to the Variety Pack dudes for doing the same, and also for making a video of death defying feats that I can live vicariously through.

I hope to see all of you fools up at Brighton this week gettin loose!

On another note I also would like to suggest a meeting of all the crews, friends, buddies, and whoever else wants to come up to an undisclosed location for a post-season rhythm section extravaganza! Date to be determined, but a few weeks sounds about right. Just think what 20-30 people with shovels, determination, creativity, and a little bit of PBR in 'em could do in a few day's worth of work up in the leftover snow!

Skier Quote of the Day.

"That was straight Jah fire from Babylon!"

Now, considering that Babylon is the word Rastafarians use to describe the corrupt western society that we live in, which they reject as a whole, I can't decide if this quote was an extremely clever attempt at irony, or if white, pothead, skiers from Utah are complete idiots.

86 aka Ryan Paul

Our homie terrence over at took a little trip down to bear recently. Coincidentally, hcsc dig to ride badass Ryan Paul was down there at the same time. Terrence wrote a little article and made a little edit to showcase why RP is his new favorite boarder... seriously worth a watch.

First Try Easter

We hit a jump on easter and we all decided to get upside down first try. Nobody landed but Torrey got a hammer later that day.

April doesn't mean it's over.

Though the city of Salt Lake looked more like spring this morning, with the sun breaking through the clouds and what snow was left dripping off the roofs. A region we were lucky enough to come across earlier this season has kept he white stuff, holding onto the storm that blew through the valley this past week.

Remember it's April second, and 50 degrees. each shovel full, or snow ball turned into slush as we set up the spot. The landing was a muddy pie, but Torrey and Mr. Little gave it their best shot. Some photo evidence.

This is April 2nd in Utah. I hear it's in the 80's in Upstate New York.

Fire cracker evidence...

Are you even sane!?

And someone did a no no on his pants. And liked it.

April doesn't mean it's over, nope not here, not Animal Farm.
