Day 24- December 15,2014

The first good day of the 2014-15 season. With a foot of new snow on thin, but stable base Micah, Cutter and I headed up to Little Cottonwood Canyon to ski in the backcountry. We started from the Alta Guard Station and hiked up in brilliant sunshine up to Cardiff Pass, then dropped into little Cardiff Bowl and finally traversed to Cardiac Bowl and Cardiac Ridge. The scenery was spectacular and the snow skied about 6 inches hero powder deep. I was in much better physical shape despite my four months off rehabing my arm from mountain biking accident. But I was totally burned out by the end.
