    My office has a majestic view of Mt. Ogden. Just off of visual comparison, there was still snow on the W facing summit I look at every day this time in 2017. This year the snow was gone by early June.

    Fack. While my observation was literally correct, that probably isn't high enough to make a lick of difference. I figured some of that stuff had to be a bit taller.

    70" this year, 25" in 2014.

    Apparently it's planning to make money through real estate sales, financed by naive foreign investors and then they hope to make it a popular MTB place. That would be sweet. 2500' vert and would open fairly early for Utah, like Sundance does. Not sure if they care about snowfall like they should be.

    They closed in early March this season after barely hanging on to a WROD for a month. We took a bunch of their reservations over at Powder as a courtesy. If I was a betting man, I know where I wouldn't put my money.

    That's because you are not a Trump supporter / climate change denier. You'd have to deny climate change to bankroll that winter operation.
    Sounds like this is would be a more profitable summer operation if it happens, eh?

If a tram up Baldy in the event shooting artillery is no longer permitted I can't imagine the outrage putting a gondola in LCC.

    They also mentioned more parking at the gravel pit and 9400 S improvements.

    They keep mentioning the increased use of LCC. I understand the Albion Basin is definitely busier in the summer than it used to be. Anybody know what LCC's skier numbers were for this past season, Utah skier days were down. Of course if temp's keep rising it won't matter.

    The gondola connecting to North Ogden certainly would appeal to a certain demographic. A buddy of mine jokingly wondered if they were going start closing on Sundays now.

    Could Snowbird's new app help with canyon traffic, perhaps?

    I'd say it can't hurt, at least they're trying.

    Not to be stalkerish, but I bet I could knock on your office door within two guesses.
