Westfest 2016: Awesome Terrain and Excellent People

 

Westfest 2016 was a ton of fun. If you weren’t able to make it, here’s what you missed. Try to join us next year!

Day 1: Alta
Some fresh snow would have gone a long way here. Conditions were variable from thin coverage to crunchy to nice and powdery.

Day 2: Solitude
Conditions were awesome. It kept snowing throughout the day, resulting in endless powder stashes all over the mountain.

Day 3: Brighton
Another day with excellent conditions. The trees at Brighton were a ton of fun. We were able to find untouched snow all day long.

Day 4: Snowbird
The forecast was cold and windy, but that didn’t stop us. We took the tram to the top and got some awesome first runs in deep, bottomless powder. After that, the wind took over and we cut the day short.

Overall, when the conditions were good, they were amazing. Even when they weren’t ideal, we had a blast. It’s easy to see why they say Utah has the greatest snow on Earth. We had a great group and I can’t wait to get back!
