    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.

    ^^ word. dig the lil' pup.

    been hiking, trail running and day dreaming of ski runs this summer in upper lcc/bcc and seeing lots of activity. heard they are putting a heated, covered bridge from the tram center to the cliff and that area is going to change. redoing the fork lift restaurant but nothing except access roads to mary ellen gulch this summer. no lifts yet. only thing i've seen at solitude is regrading on solbright and a slew of cut down trees near eagle. oh yea, i'm sure most of you know this but i didn't when getting the kids passes last weekend. thought all passes got wasatch benefits but its only a certain # of passes. solitude gets 5k of them and they are halfway through them so if you getting them ...

    Exactly

    On the other hand, the owners don't seem to be too concerned. In an interview with the Ogden Standard Examiner, James Colman, the resort manager said,
    "Thereís been climate change for millennia. Thereís no question the Earth goes through cycles, there is climate change, in general the Earth has been heating up. Itís not something I worry about a whole lot myself. We do the best we can to deal with it, to improve our snowmaking, to improve the way we manage the mountain.

    "I just think there are bigger things I have to deal with, personally, that I can have more control over than the climate. I donít think itís conclusive, personally, that climate change is human caused. My home in Durango, 10,000 years ago, was under 2,000 feet of ice."

    I'd make a joke about Durango having some damn good weed these days, but I don't think it's possible to get that out of touch with reality just from blazing herb.

    Itíd be funny if it wasnít so sad. Also funny if he was an outlier, but thatís pretty much the party line of every Utah elected official.

    Good to know. I renewed mine with full wasatch pass benefits a couple of weeks ago. However, what i really want to know is the Ikon conversion. I would love a couple of days thrown in at Jackson Hole. I guess we find out in November after close of the deal.
