    I went back yesterday and recorded the run with my phone's camera. The snow was 20-25 miles an hour slower than Saturday morning, but at least it'll give a feel for where we got the fastest speeds....

    281328
    Super fast snow under perfect conditions. Top speed this morning: 82mph on a pair of 193cm AK NoKaOi skis. Wearing regular baggy ski pants and a windbreaker.
    Good thing it was just two...

    Tomorrow morning it's on! It's gonna be fast if this afternoon is any indication. Coldsmoke, Rickack and I did a few trials. Reached 73MPH no problem on short S7's and an open flapping jacket.

    Yep, Brighton opened yesterday, 11/15/18, right on their average opening day. As mentioned in my OP, 11/15 has been Utah's average opening date for the past 20 years. Thanks mostly to Brighton, btw. ...

  7. Any Utards know what it's looking like up yonder?

    I expect to be skiing when I'm back in town. Next week is Utah's average opening week for the past 20 years. Don't let me down. In fact, with only three exceptions, Utahns are always skiing within...

    Yes, my point is snowbird made a rash, over-reactionary decision because of one accident. An accident which should have been no skin off Snowbird's nose if the waivers they've had us sign for six...

    CoreShot: I don't know what that is, but if it means get to the snow the old-fashioned way, then yes.

  13. What? You're telling me I can't ski? Here, Hold My Skis.

    The Wasatch snow is melting so fast that I could tell today was my only chance of continuing my almost 26-year monthly streak. I showed up at the Bird's tram with my skis this afternoon, fully...

    Shark-free snow riding

    Snow riders have many things to be happy about. Like sharks. Happy that sharks seem content to stay in the liquid form of water. Instead of lurking beneath snow, for example. How many of us would be...

    Heck no, that wouldn't be cheating. It'd actually be fun to see how much difference long boards might make. One year I brought my 213cm Fischer RC4 Vacuums. Unfortunately, the conditions and...

    It's literally been years since the conditions were as good as today. Super fast surfaces, crystal clear viz, amazing coverage, great grooming, blue skies and temps so perfect it gave us a looong...

    Bummer Danno. Even if you can come up for one or two runs before riding it'd be great to see you.

    Danno, it was 72. Which interestingly matched up with the max speed his gps app showed that day. GPS apps are getting more accurate, but they usually show higher speeds than what the radar clocks.

    Looks like the conditions will be primo. So who should Coldsmoke, Doug and I be looking for tomorrow morning?
    DanTheMan? Gadget? Lumpy? Altagirl? Bellantino? GT40?

    I'll go with your recollection, Spats. On certain things, my memory is rock solid no matter how many years have gone by. On others, like this, it's like a sieve.

    Hey Spats! Good to hear from you. You might very well be right, but from what I can recall the challenges didn't start until a couple years into it when we started registering speeds in the 70's and...

    No, not really. For the past 30 years I've only kept track of the date, start and end time, name of ski area, who I was with (or solo), which skis I used, how many inches new (if any), the weather,...
  28. Snowbird opening tmrw? Or reemphasizing their terrain's available to ski?

    Not quite sure what to make of this. Coldsmoke texted me that with all the recent new snow, the bird is opening tomorrow. Of course you've got to buy a lift ticket (tram I presume) and sign a...

    I'd have a hard time calling it terrifying; maybe because I'm doing the driving. Plus, I've been skiing at these speeds for years. But no doubt I'd be paralyzed with fear, and probably pass out, if I...
