After skiing pow all morning at Snowbird on the legendary 21st of December 2010 we decided to get spinny flippy in the afternoon. Overall it was an awesome time. This is a clip of a very close call. Some kids told me the landing was clear so I went ahead. They were wrong. I basically landed on the kids skis who was in the LZ. If it looked that close with a GoPro you can imagine how close it was. We had a quick discussion about proper spotting/safety right after this.

Snowbird Powder with Scott Markewitz

On Monday night I got a call from the biggest name is Outdoor Sports Photography to come shoot at Snowbird the next day. I was excited to say the least. The day dawned blue. We had 6 inches of fresh overnight and the mountain gave us early access to get out there to get some good shots.

If I had to give one reason why I've pursued this "professional skier" path I would have to say the experiences. The gear is awesome and definitely enhances the experience, but it all comes down to moments like Tuesday morning when you have an entire ski area all to yourself to ski powder under blue skies.

Hopefully some photos get published from the day. It felt really productive. We had great light, snow and access. Below is a photo taken by Jared Ishkanian of one of the airs of the day:
