Great skiing to be had out there today. I was thinking that we would have some settlement over night, but that was not the case. A nice five inch refresher came in late last night which kept the skiing outstanding. Anyone ski south this afternoon? Did it mank up? The snow was noticeably heaver on the second lap.

Got out this morning with Wills, broke trail the top half between Days and Silver. Took a couple laps in Silver, West Bowl. Dropped into Main Days via Jaws, then up Days for a finishing lap on Flag. Great snow, stability was good. By 11am most aspects at lower elevation were scary wet, picking up 4 inches of snow on my bases, wax wasn't gonna help.

Thanks for the beta and great stoke guys!! ^BRUTAH, No we went up pole line today although some animal from the A-lodge put in that skinner up flag yesterday morning.

It's been a good March so far.
Just some footage of some of my favorite days so far this month. Skied with a lot of mags already this month, thanks for the good turns.

Still some dry snow out there but like others have said you need to be on something almost due north. Saw some natural wet avy action on the way up lcc this afternoon droping a buddy off at arround 3:20 on the ice chute east of the Y. Defnitily got a good amount of snow moving with it."Officially known as Highway U-210, more commonly known as Little Cottonwood Canyon and unofficially acknowledged as the epicenter of the greatest snow on earth."

Cardiac Ridge Tuesday, might be my last visit to the ridge, nice and quiet on Tuesday, but the ski out to BCC was painfully slow.

Looking to do a tour on Saturday. I was thinking perhaps Deseret Peak, and though I know this isnt in the Wasatch I figured this might be a good place to find someone to tour with. Skiing Mt Baker tomorrow and then driving south. Would love to hook up with someone for this.Shoot me a pm if you're interested.
Then planning on skiing somewhere in the Wasatch on Sunday.

Bring your mountain bike, sometimes the road is closed for no apparent reason. From experience I know this is a long walk in and an even longer walk out, even with tennis shoes on.

went for Deseret last may (late) i think there was around 100 inch base with lots of storms. I bet skiing will be better now because of a more consolidated snowpack. i have been actually thinking of going again around now but tomorrow wont work.
bring your bike for sure, its a big one.

I don't care what I do I just want to tour something tomorrow. Rolling in around 1am. Will check messages. Anyone interested send me a pm. Then have to be back in Denver by 9 pm Sunday.

^^^^^We spent the last few days skiing the north facing couloirs and high west faces on Timp. Great conditions right now. Legit soft snow on north couloirs, corn down low, corn on west faces. Mostly stable conditions with isolated wind pockets up high.
There's a booter up the Grunge, and a booter up the west face of the north summit.
