Deer Valley and Alta, Utah Skiing

Having unseasonably warm weather here in USA at moment. No real snowfall since we arrived. Still managing to ski though. Lots of blue sky for photos. Mainly using dark yellow filter with Ilford FP4 as lots of dark green conifers around, otherwise I would be using orange more.

Yesterday was Deer Valley, today was Alta, both in Utah near Salt Lake City. Both have bans on snowboarding which was bliss.

With little fresh snow for over a week they are struggling to keep runs open. Still enough to go at though but very strange seeing so much brown hillside with no snow on it.

Tomorrow we ski Canyons, just outside Park City. Saturday we ski Steamboat in Colorado.

Had our 3rd night at the Redrock Brewery tonight. It's just over a half-mile from our hotel and has reasonable beer and food.
