  1. WASATCH STOKE, CONDITIONS, OBSERVATIONS and ASSORTED DRIVAL 19-20

    Only here for Monday? Will be getting back late from Jackson but could do early am or lunch tour on Tuesday.

    Would love one of those stickers if you have more Dibs.

    Thereís quite a bit of mellow terrain across the road from Solitude, on the N side of BCC. Parking may be a challenge though.

    Yup, let's do it! Just booked a place, will be there Saturday around lunch.



    Will do, would be great to grab a beer.

    I'd say that's definitely a concern. Probably depends a lot on how warm the next storm comes in but I'd be skeptical of much bonding to the south facing crust right now.

    I might throw my alpine stuff in the car just in case but probably won't pay the $150 or whatever a lift ticket is going for these days. I've always wanted to check out the skiing in the park, I've...

    Think you'll be skiing the same terrain as those guys? If so then maybe it's worth a heavier ski. Sounds like you'll be skiing low angle pow, you can go really light and ski that just fine.

    BD touring pack

    Not sure the model. Think itís around 35L. Could use a wash but itís in good shape, no rips, no issues, all zippers and whatnot work. Can accommodate a hydration bladder.

    Thinking $50 but feel...

    I love my Rootdown. Itís great for making tame trails exciting and weíve got no shortage of tame around SLC.

    Unfortunately that IG post is pretty accurate. Not a ton of options currently. Anything not down by town and in the sun is probably not ready yet. Even some snow and ice on the upper ahab climb....
