    N-NE skied very deep above 9500 today. The snow came in right side up and finished off with some utah fluff.

    yet another ec'er movin to foofyland.

    read the reports carefully. i remember my 1st winter out there pre-intertoobz.

    i called the avy report and it said that 3-4 feet was expected with the incoming system. i was very young at the time and thought i'd heard bruce wrong. he must've meant 3-4 inches, no? nope, that storm was a life changer fer sure.

    have fun, be safe and come home with tall tales. we'll leave the light on for ya.

    like everyone elsehas already said today at alta was the best early season pow i have skied. not measly pow but pow 3-4 feet deep. what a blessing. my camping at albion meadows fora month and a half really thickened my blood and made this early season climb easy. the festive air within the croud was very nice.

    ^^^ bike leg? that earns some serious points. you and stoy should take a trip together.

    I'm not a fan of strapping things to the outside of my pack either, but I usually make an exception for skis.

    Cardiff

    We had a big crew this morning wandering through the clouds in Cardiff.


    Thanks to Gnarwhale and Provo for breaking a nice skinner up Superior.


    Provo and his pole cam ready to drop the north face


    The south ridge looking magical


    Big crowds over there at Alta


    We all bumped some rocks on the upper section but the lower 3/4 was money

    I heard two whumpfs near the top of Cardiac. There is also some graupel buried about 15 inches down.

    Amazing what one storm can do

    What a great day to kick off the season!

    Sweet pics Gnarwhale and pointedem!

    You make the following seem pale in comparison, yet it's more of the same from Alta. We headed to the slopes below Devil's Castle to avoid the crowds.





    Found lots of untracked, deep shots and had that side of the mountain to ourselves.





    Lapped it a few times before Mike and I had to leave for work.



    Has to be among the best first-days of a ski season. What a morning!!!

    Ooooooooooooooh! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Glad to see everyone packing that snow down so there'll be something to ski when I get there.

    Loving it guys! Can't wait to get out into the white mountains again. It does bring back memories of Oct 2007, and that doesn't suck.
    It's like I died and went to heaven, but then it turned out it wasn't my time, and they sent me to a brewery.

    Heh, we passed you from the skin track, think I said something like "strong work!" to ya. Thanks for the noble effort, I noticed on the way down that the entire skin track had been booted.

    Snowbird yesterday at about 2:30pm. Did a Gad Valley lap first. The sun was hammering Regulator but it was still creamy and fun. Shot these photos at the bottom of Gad Valley.

    2nd lap was Great Scott. North facing, shaded and cold. It was super sick blower. Awesome. No photos but some video to come later. The bottom of p-gulch was a lot less awesome. A LOT of rocks and danger. I took a very slow speed tumble and have a softball sized bruise to show for it. BE CAREFUL OUT THERE.

    Short morning before work. Snow is obviously much more settled today, but still good turning. Not much else to report, other than with all the packing going on with the snowcats, should be good nordic skiing soon before Alta opens.
