Utah First Storm SKS 21

Technine am Brady Larson getting after it on day one.

It’s that time of year, in certain places snow has started to fly and people are getting amped up for winter. Over at SNOWBOARDER Magazine we had word that there were up to 20 inches of snow at the higher elevations out in Utah so we asked Salt Lake local, Sean Kerrick Sullivan, to go out and snap some shots. Winter is here.

Something really big happened in Utah over the weekend and it was not a keg party (kegs are illegal in UT). What was it? The arrival of winter. With up to 20 inches already on the ground at higher elevations and more on the way, fall finally slowed its roll and let winter step to the table.

Watching winter and fall do battle as you drive up the canyon is beautiful, and seeing winter win is a whole nudder’ story.
