    Walk on Tram laps >>> Hiking traverses to get to the goods. Yes, the 700ft vert off of Wild cat before the flats is some awesomeness.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    Yes, and for pure PNW gnar, Alpental trumps all other PNW hills. Certainly Stevens, Dweebus and Baker have their pockets of gnar, but you have to actively seek it out. Alpental is the opposite.

    Alpie has the highest percentage of gnar, but depending on definitions, I'd quibble about limiting Crustal gnar to pockets, especially if one hikes.

    A bit is less than a nibble which is less than a byte, so despite that quibble rhymes with nibble and dribble, I'll eschew that drivel.

    Of course it is, because it is like the only place in Alta where you don't really need to traverse a lot.

    I remember that episode of Star Trek with all those fuzzy little quibbles.

    I was the best. I wasn't proud about it. I just was. I got instant respect, the liftline , the smokeshack, the apres bar of choice, no matter which one it might have been on any given afternoon. I owned. It became boring unless I was on the verge of injury or death. There was nowhere left to ascend to other than death, or waking up as a fifty year old alcoholic sharing a room with 20 year olds in the basement of the Peruvian Lodge. The animal instinct, the primal instinct, motivation without words told me "Get the fuck out! Don't become another victim." I lived it. I reached the pinnacle, and turned my back and raced away from that nightmarish dream.

    The heralded realm of Jackson. That's where it died. I had been amongst Kings, Queens, and every body lesser in the land of Utah. All of a sudden in the height of my career I began witnessing my elders fall before me. McConkey, Pierre, Romeo. Some remain untouchable and may they forever remain so: Nobis, Cattabriga-Alosa, the fair and wonderful Kasha Rigby. It became known to me I was not of the magic some of these folk were. Strong in body yet weaker in spirit, strongest of spirit being a requisite for a life fulfilled in the highest of heights.

    It was amongst this extended realization of my own lateness and shortcomings to the world of high that I came upon a sharp-eyed red haired maiden of worlds far removed. The pursuit of spirits upon high was abandoned (or waylaid at best) for the attainment of a goddess among earthly grounds. Such has been the course for many a year but at times arises thoughts of old, being on heights, sleds on feet, the wind and the clouds and the snow...
