Hail & Rainbows - Green & Flowers

Ok, it doesn't happen often, or ever, but I actually got completely sick of snow and skiing last week and needed to see some GREEN and FLOWERS!!!! So I went to my mom's place in the San Joaquin Valley and soaked it all up! I did a day in the delta, a day at lake Don Pedro and a few days just chilling at my mom's almond and walnut farm on the Toulomne River. It was much need and amazing.

The Highlight? Yesterday, pouring rain, then quarter-sized hail, then enormous rainbows!!!! Check out the video and pictures

A Day in the life at Squaw Valley USA

A no soundtrack version of what happened in my world at Squaw on April 3rd. The ripper in blue going huge all over the mountain is John Solder.

This was a favorite because I ran into great buddies from high school, college and Squaw and the smiles just kept coming! This video is from April 3rd, 2010.

Fingers Race - April 3rd, 2010 - Middle Finger

Here is a video of the Fingers race on April 3rd, 2010. I'm the skier who skis Middle Finger. It was crazy ice and I almost hiked outta there. But then decided, aaawwwhhh, what the hell, and went for it. It was scary for the first 3 turns and then PERFECT! Please watch the next video up to see what it looked like through my eyes (helmet cam).
