    Keep up. It was the only Ikon open in SLC Friday morning.

    Pretty decent snow in a lot of places. It's not cut up fast, because, God damn, that is the worst collection of skiers I've seen in one place.
    I was there that day and disagree. Plenty of Altabird regulars skiing that day since LCC was closed and BCC was a traffic shit show.

    Loading a quad chair at Alta yesterday a skier can't get through the gate. His buddies stand in the way and block others. No big deal, a few chairs end up getting loaded with two, three, one etc. We get on a chair with two 60 yo guys. As we head up the guy starts talking about the Packers, I say are you from Wisconsin? (we live in SLC all winter, 30 miles west of Milwaukee rest of the year) One guy says yes, Eau Claire WI, other guy says Denver. He makes another Packer comment to us, my wife says, no we are not Packer fans. Guy in a very agitated tone keeps going, "that's the worst Packer I have ever seen, what the hell was he doing"? I finally ask him what he is talking about? "The packer is totally incompetent, can't even get four people on a chair" Oh, I say, you mean the liftie, "in Colorado we call them packers"

    I've never understood why if you and you friend(s)--who you spent perhaps hours with in the car, are going to ride the lift together 20-30 times that day, are maybe staying in the same house--don't get to ride one lift together it's a problem.

    Yes, but way more annoying, imho, is the race kids and coaches who should know better, but seem to have no idea how to meet up before getting to load the chair. And can't just meet up at top

    There's a chute in Silverado called Mr. Toad's that in average snow is just wide enough to make turns--until someone on a snowboard sideslips a trench down the center.

    I was riding up one of the Mineral Basin lifts a few days ago, and the results from maybe hundreds of sideslipping boarders in some "chutes", or narrow little spaces between some outcroppings, was obvious. They aren't bumps, they're like waves of snow deposited in these places, and you don't see it at Alta or DV.

    He was right. If it wasn't for the refills every day the trenches that got left behind would have made the skiing difficult.

    Next time you're at Snowbird post in the wasatch thread and we'll get a crew together. Most of us aren't that weird in real life.

    Back when I skied Vermont.. the Boarder sideslip effect was so sickening on the steeper slopes.
    When the base is icy, and a good dump comes>>> all the snow from the runs gets Pushed downhill, leaving solid ice runs with deep piles at the bottom. Pretty sickening to have to ski ice on a Powder day.

    That's how I broke my back (although it was a hand charge, not snowboarders, that slid all the snow to the bottom).

    Presidents / family day weekend with long lines. The lift is stopped because someone fell off as it was leaving the terminal. I see the guy doing the walk off shame back to the loading zone - it's a lifty (in uniform). Looks like he tried to take a lap on his break and fell off the chair. That's the second time this year I've seen a lifty fall off the chair shortly after loading.

    I posted last year about having to carry up a ski patroller's dropped pole.

    some guy on the chair asked me why my skis were so narrow. Perfectly normal question to ask of someone with GS skis on a rock hard morning. A lot of western skiers don't understand skinny stiff skis, just like a lot of eaterners don't understand >100 mm daily drivers.

    That seems like maybe a language barrier thing?
