    Alta 2/27/08

    First real post of stoke...hope its worthy.

    Had a fantastic day at Alta/Bird yesterday. Skied all over, but the real highlight of the day was Baldy's main chute.



    Next time its Little Chute for this kid

    So, in your opinion, is Utah steeper than Colorado?

    Dude we're just funnin' ya 'cuz the photo looks like it was tilted to make main look steeper than it is. I'm sure it was because the photog was standing on a sidehill trying to get the shot. I mean if you had intentionally tilted it you would have cropped out the horizon. But that's what all the nudge nudge wink wink in here is about. Don't take it personally.

    Thanks for posting stoke!

    yeah thats what I thought...Actually the photog was standing a top to the side shooting down.

    Truth be told the first few turns (where that pic is taken) are 50 degrees or so...and the remainder of the run is a solid 45 degrees for another 1000+ vert more.

    that'll teach me to post "stoke"...

    Don't be too sensitive. Looks like a cool picture to me and the response seemed pretty benign (see Hutch's second post).

    I never post stoke, but not because I'm afraid people will pick on me. I don't post stoke because: a) I'm pretty sure that I don't really do any stokeworthy (except to me) skiing, and b) my wife and kids refuse to carry a camera out to the magic carpet area.
