I recently went on a trip out to Utah. The trip was fantastic for many reasons, all of which I am so grateful for. But, I am not going to go into them all right now, I really just wanted everyone to know that I have an awesome brother.
My brother, Danny, came up to The Canyons ski resort to go snowboarding with me a week ago today. He is pretty good, although he claims he isn't as good as he used to be. Anyway, we made a run in some powder early in the day and decided that we had to get my camera and do it again. So, at lunch, we grabbed the camera, took a few lifts up to 9990 and then hiked the rest of the way up. Had to stop and take a picture at the sign as we left the resort to do some back-country! The snow out there was amazing! The best powder run I have ever taken in my entire life!As we were enjoying ourselves in the powder, we decided to make one more run up there, but to take a different route. As we were darting in and out of trees, riding ridges, and bombing bowls, Danny noticed a group of people sitting up above a jump. "I have to go hit that," he tells me. He rides over to join the group as I go down below the jump and grab my camera. A few people go, really just straight airing the thing, and a few 180s and 360s here and there. No one really is doing anything. Danny decides to jump in line and the following photo is what ensues.
The man did a front flip and landed it. Everyone went crazy when he hit it, and he showed all of them up. Happily I was there to get it on camera, and after some work in Photoshop, I got the whole sequence in one picture.
All I have to say is, he's a pretty cool brother!
