    snowed a bit
    8th annual
    https://utahavalanchecenter.org/even...public-session
    this sat.
    props to the uac for putting it togather again. If youve never attended one you should consider pretty good forum and exchange of information.
    It takes a lot to get up in front of a group and discuss avvy incidents mistakes and what you learned from your experience, kudos to those who do.
    i'm bummed i'm not a pro bro i'd really like to hear IR's sillytude presentation in the am session.
    stay safe n git sum in wasangles this season

    From what I understand it's an easy bluff into the AM session, and it's not like you will be pushing out a pro from a seat once you are in. Just say you have 8,000 posts on TGR or something.

    public session was great as usual. It's a definite must-do for me every fall now.

    looking like a quick dawn patrol wednesday morning might be in order with the new storm

    Hey fellow Wasatchers! Stoke is getting high for the upcoming season. Unfortunately my time in the Wasatch is limited this year to about a month during December and January and a couple weeks in the spring. If anyone wants to get rad with me at the Bird or get weird in the backcountry with me while i'm in town just let me know.

    Been skiing for about 13 years now, always looking for some down to earth people to shwalrp pow with.

    Yeah, looks like things are about to start happening for y'all:

    U of U weather thinks maybe 14" starting Tues and tapering off by Thurs. Looks like Jackson will get the brunt of this one though

    It's on.



    skiATL getting the first (and only) face shot of the day...



    Some surprisingly acceptable snow.



    My bad tele steeze



    Rail shenanigans.



    I can't really tele but they're my rock skis so...

    We skinned up to the top of Wildcat. 6-8" or so on the ground. It wasn't bad if you stayed on the grass. Let it snow

    Once we've got enough snowpack, I will be up for the occasional dawn patrol. Get stoked!

    I must admit that it's a photo I post every year when people start posting photos of them skiing grass. This is from back when early season storms were skiable, at about 5000 feet of elevation no less.

    well coverage was better this weekend vrs last


    sillytudes new summit towers are up but no cables or chairs

    workin on smokerise though

    still sparse and base bashin chocolate chippers ahoy

    bit more coverage atop crest but best turning conditions found along the edges of the bullit proof leave no tracks mounds of mother natures helpers

    the child still awaits patiently for the next snowfall
    but piggy backs up
    because this = what we do

    The mrs and I will be up at Alta something like 6 or 6:15 for the feeding frenzy. I'll be wearing a blue/white TGR beanie, yellow pants, green freeride systems jacket.
