On President's Day I just so lucked out to have a great mother-in-law and got to squeak in a free and clear resort day at Solitude. I felt a little twinge of guilt for not bringing L or T, but it soon melted away. Met at Dalt's house at 8:20, quick stop for snacks, on the mountain by 9:10. About 25 degrees (f). We did some super-speeders on the quad and then moved back to Milk Run and got some good footage of Dalt dropping a cliff-band. We hit Summit and got some pretty cool views of Wolverine. Shredded four or five on that side of the mountain and returned via a nice rip down Honeycomb. Ate some fried chicken and reeled off about 10 runs in about 120 minutes or so. The second to last proved to be one too many. As Dalt was getting some high speed footage, he took a wicked toe-side bounce off the soft pack . Diagnosis on the ribs not good, on the camera... about the same. Huge amount of vert and variable terrain covered, a great day.
