SkiBASE, Speedflying, and Preseason Shredding - Suz Graham

 
SkiBASE, Speedflying, and Preseason Shredding - Suz Graham
 
November 19, 2012 - 
 

My first turns back on snow for the 2012-2013 ski season as well as my first turns on a rebuilt tib-fib. Seems appropriate that it starts out with a skiBASE, then some speedriding, then some actual skiing! SkiBASE is skiing off a really big cliff with a parachute- it's one of my favorite things to do, since it combines my two favorite sports, skiing and BASE jumping. And it's not super common that the conditions line up perfectly for it either! 

We got to ride the lifts at Alta Ski area a few days before the resort opened and it was just the cherry on top of a couple really fun days!
