Pffft bunny slope. Nice shot. Landing looks like it is going to be rough, not much angle there.

large and a spot that looks worthy of shooting from a few angles. Sesh it up. I would say that you want to shoot this at a different time of the day as you were working with an akward lighting situation it appears. Golden hours man, that's where it gets done on a shot like this.

I like this shot, but I think it needs a little more pop. Since it was cloudy, some flashes would have made for a great shot, but if you don't have them, there's not much you can do. You may be able to suck a bit more out of it in post though.

Very quick edit:

I think it angles down to the right over the crest.

If you look close you can see where they land on the right side of the bottom tree. The landing is OK, unless you go to big.

Yea that would be nice. The problem is this cliff is in bounds at Snowbird. They open different parts of the mountain as the avalanche control work permits. If you ever been to Snowbird you know that it is a rat race. You have to get to stuff before it gets bombed out. No one wants to hit this if there is a hottub size hole in the landing. So you just have to pray for the right lighting to be there when the opportunity presents itself.

Ahh I see. It looks like he is heading for the area in the foreground. Guy has balls. Big drop.

yeah, I understand. one of the reasons I often hit Alta or Powder Mtn. even. Alta can get a bit busy as well but I totally agree that you don't need a hole to land in at that size. If you're local, maybe you'll get a few more cracks at it. In bounds is tough on something like that unless you get up bright and early for first tracks.

Looks like a fun drop! About 10 years ago I had a chance to go out to Utah for a week of boarding, but it all got pulled out from under me (and two other friends) the night before we were supposed to leave. This brings back bitter memories for me. But otherwise, it's a great shot!
