Ski Patroller Jordan Brown skiing Doc Dempsey’s

We received 6 to 10 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours and 20 inches in the past 4 days.  I tried to get the snow report done as soon as possible this morning, so that I could get on the mountain quickly.  I rode the Sterling lift first and watched the skiers and riders floating through the powder on Upper Exhibition.  I was going to ski Smugglers’ Alley, but then I saw that Bootlegger was open from the top.  Without hesitation I dropped in and got a face shot on my second turn.  I fought the urge to continue skiing and stopped to grab the Gopro camera out of my pocket.  I could hear people all around me hooting and hollering for joy.  I attached the video camera to the end of my ski pole, so that it was looking back at me.  The powder on skier’s right was just amazing. To see the footage from this run go to the Smugglers’ Notch Face book page and click on “calm before the storm”.
