    Been 'trolling there 7 years now. Haven't seen that sign. Musta been before my time. I agree one should never boot a skin track, but this is a sidestep. There should be a boot pack AND a skin track...

    Man, that hike kills hips and knees. Nothing wrong with squaring up to what one is hiking. And few in bounds hikers are skiing with free heels and skins.
    Maybe we should leave skis on for the Apron...

    As most know, WBR is made up of professional rescuers from all the ski areas and counties in the Wasatch.

    Fo sho. Lotta frostbite out there after the winds picked up.

  22. That 8 million that Mtn. Accord spent on nothing...

    That 8 million that Mtn. Accord spent on nothing could have gone a long way towards land acquisition / parking development at the bottom of BCC and LCC. What a waste of dollars, eh?
    Gotta start...

    Snowsheds are a band aid. An expensive as shit band aid.
    The road is in the wrong place for safety.

    Bottom line is that with population and ski area use exploding in the Wasatch and forecasted to continue,
