snowboarding.

we love the bird.
hilary and ben waiting to go down the most amazing run.
more picturesque trees. it snowed SO MUCH...
hilary and i at lunch with our hot yummy chocolate.
on the lift.
see how much snow?

it was a great day snowboarding. i am really feeling it now... my body is so so sore.

the email i wrote to my sister, shayna about 'boarding today describes our experience perfectly...

today we woke up to a lot of snow but ben, hilary and i decided we would still hit up the bird. the roads were fine and then completely clear when we hit the point of the mountain on the way up.
then it snowed the entire day at snowbird. it was cold (not too cold) but the snow was SO NICE. really beautiful powder. the kind that actually looks like powdered sugar, ya know? loved it. but then there was major avalanche control going on so we couldn't leave the canyon until 4:45. the roads were really bad even in the valley... we had to drop something off at hilary's friends house and we stopped for cafe rio but it took us 3.5 hours to get home. booo. it was crazy.
when we were driving through sandy, there were multiple cars, including a postal truck and a uta bus that were all stuck going up a hill (at like 1300 E and 9400 S) people are really dumb thinking they can get their little two wheel drives up those hills in the snow. it was a little freaky, like we were in a movie
and also, just before we left snowbird we thought someone had stolen hilary's board. she said she had just seen it before it had been taken so she ran up the steps to see if she could spot someone who took it. it was some punk kid who "thought it was his board"... yeah right. it didn't look anything like his. people are so strange in freaky weather.

Oh but your story was chilling...I'm glad there was hot chocolate and Cafe Rio in the mix. Now you just need a hot tub and some cookies.
