    TR: East Ramp, Kessler Peak, Wasatch Mountains.

    Been an excellent week of touring around the Wasatch. 7 Days straight of earning turns, couldn't be more stoked on the trip. Thanks as always to Telee and his wife who are the most gracious hosts in SLC and Skifishbum for giving us rides and getting us out every day on new terrain and fresh lines, both of you

    I have a shit ton of pics from everyday that have been going in the Wasatch conditions thread, but the last day before we had to catch our evening flight out, was one of the best tours I have been on in Utah on a super deep and aesthetic line. Figured this one warranted its own TR.


    Participants were, 1thenaton1, Dowork, Skifishbum, non mags Topher and Pam.

    We approached via the Argenta slide path off the BCC road.

    SFB on the up



    1thenaton1 starting it off right


    Topher dropping in








    Coming into the middle of the line


    Finishing it out on the apron



    1thenaton1 coming into it off the top of kessler






    Lower down on the line







    SFB laying down turns on the lower section





    Do Work getting deep






    Pam dropping the knees






    And finishing down the lower section


    and one of me courtesy of the naton.

    Thanks for looking

    snowing a bunch now back in North VT now stoked to get out in my home mountains for a bit.

    Most excellent. Looks just like that in the Central Greens. Not sure why you had to travel so far

    Yes, I broke off from the group to try them out in some pow, chop and bumps one day. Went to Soli, pretty much lapped honeycomb with a hilarious southerner dude I met on the return chair and yeah- they kicked ass all over the place- They really are pretty much a perfect all around ski for all things storm day and batting cleanup.

    Freakin awesome week though. Can't believe the touring we did, the snow was just so amazing every damn day. Huge thanks to Telee and SFB, those two make a hell of a hospitable team and that's putting it unimaginably lightly.

    That last day was a perfect icing for the cake- long sketchy ass skin track, pea soup mystery drop ins, and AMAZING UNTOUCHED POW. The only other person we saw the whole day was Str8Chuter too haha... Kind of funny. In any case though, this tour was the tits. Barely made our flight out too but I wouldn't have had it any other way. The stink just reminded me of how rad it was haha

    Now I'm off to put my feet up.

    while slayin the pow pow on his bdizzled megga fatties
    bummed yous weren't afforded the cool veiws from the peak but a couple k of untracked wasatch pow a few days after a weekend storm didn't suck

    Stoked to be able to share the goods w/ ya and remember what this chunk of the interwebz should be about

    We have had several guests stay at the casa since living at the mouth of the Wasatch, but I have never had anybody stay who got after it like TC and DW. Those guys crushed it. And for anyone who has never seen TC's spirit and enthusiasm for skiing it should be mandatory viewing. The dude can barely walk and then he gets on a pair of skis and crushes it. It is truly inspiring.
    You guys are welcome at my pad anytime!

    Thanks dudes

    SFB- Bummed we didnt catch those views either and you are right I wasn't making it easy on myself with the hardware selection. But the pay off was right on and so is your reminder on why this place can be great.
    I got your pics ransom for next time, figured the brospitality can only last so long
