Today was opening day at Stevens Pass. I couldn't believe how early it came this year. Before Thanksgiving? What was even more unbelievable was how much snow there was! They already have a 50in base and it snowed like 6in while we were there today. It was nuts! It was a powder day on opening day in November. Kind of a paradox for this state.
Chase Jarivs always says "The best camera is the one you have with you." I made this mistake of not charging mine up last night (went to bed at 12:30am and woke up at 5:45am) so all I had for a camera was my cell phone. I'm just lucky that my cell phone takes half decent video so I could capture the epic snowfall (too bad it was from the car I know.) The point is, don't get caught up with having the fanciest gear. Just use what you have and make it work.
