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

    Thought we were in for some survival skiing but ended up having a very enjoyable and well timed run down MC this afternoon before some bird laps.

    Nice work mall walker!
  5. WASATCH STOKE, CONDITIONS, OBSERVATIONS and ASSORTED DRIVAL 19-20

    Fully agree and don’t really get the hype. Skied it before and from what I recall it’s a whole lot of traversing for a little vert. Maybe it’s an Alta thing.

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

    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.

    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.

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