    Not sure why the 6-6 date. Putting the passes on sale in April as opposed to late August as in previous years was to have them out there when Ikon, Epic, MC etc were available. When does Epic go up in price?

    Alta facebook page is getting lit up! Sure plenty of dentists ski there but it is blue collar with families with bills, kids and budgets. Im still pissed at Brighton for their early pass price bumb bullshit but Alta is giving their peeps less heads up.

    BTW does anyone know how to get ahold of season pass sales at Brighton? My pass payment got dicked up and I have been calling and emailing with no response. I guess I could use it as an excuse to do a crest lap since its clear and just drive up there but is anyone even there now?

    Walked all the way up baldy in my skiboots and tagged main chute. Still snow up there. Maybe the most gorgeous day ever. Came home and took a nap with windowz open. Fitbit says between baldy and mowing grass Im 32000 steps into the day. Click image for larger version.

    just heard from a friend who has a condo at solitude that they just entered a purchase agreement with alterra (same group that bought deer valley). no idea idea on what that means or if sunrise ever gets replaced but guess i should get moving on the season passes before prices change (labor day)

    "We want to build a gondola through a roadless area, but it shouldn't be a big deal since we only want to build a few roads."

    With that being said, gondolas to urban centers could be a great solution to traffic problems. Don't want to re-hash that argument though.

    No matter how much they improve the lifts, and the "gondola" the 5400' base will still be a problem.

    The proposed expansion includes a decent chunk of higher-elevation northeast-facing terrain. But I can't imagine the proposed terrain above North Ogden will ever be skiable except perhaps for a snowmaking WROD.

    I'm trying to visualize where this will go.... So its going to be a full expansion of the east facing aspects of the Mtn Nordic is already on and then the west face that goes into the Ogden area???

    Supposedly. I doubt this thing will ever get out of the public comment period. If it did, some of those NW facing steep trees would be pretty rowdy...for a month and a half a year.

    The highest peaks and ridgelines in that area all barely crack 8,000 ft.
