 Front wheel keeps getting stuck in deep snow, and then the snowboard was invented.

 @fatalataf: Was wondering if this was a typo because we all know Alta UT is the shiz and Snowbird right next door. Please expand on Alta Norway!

 @scott-townes: I did watch the video, from my desk with the sound off as I'm at work, wishing I was out riding, even if it was the wrong machine for the type of ground conditions (there I go again!) Makken wins here, as he's out doing rad shit and I'm the loser at a laptop wasting my life away.

 Snowbird is still open for skiing and riding till at least June 16th but only on Friday Saturday and Sundays. Season may go longer than that but that's the latest I've heard.

 I bet snowbird will open up the glacier for the 4th of july weekend. Its been a big snow year. This was my ride this morning, and that photo was taken only at 7,300 feet. The top of Snowbird is over 11,000 feet.
