    This. I hate conspiracy theories, but the idea that Alta and Snowbird actually want the road to be a non-stop crisis-level shitshow has merit.

    But if they get real cops to direct traffic at Snowbird, and not rent-a-cops, maybe they could at the bottom of the hill. But the difference may be Snowbird can't send cops wherever they want and order them to anything unless it's their private property, is my guess.
    I think you are right for the most part about just letting up all cars that are obviously AWD/4WD, Unfortunately the car rental companies have FWD SUVs in stock; I got stuck with one a few years ago. I've seen a few SUVs sliding around up there. I don't know if it was tires or 2WD.

    Good point. They won't be 100% successful, but I think ti would be worth it.

    Lamoille canyon in the Rubys is burning, lotta good skiing up there. Maybe this will clear the brush at the bottom of Terminal Cancer though.

    There is no NV ski thread, so close enough?

    anyone been in the spring canyon scenic and wildlife preserve, kinda near emigration? curious about the public / private land boundary and access etc

    edit: fwiw it's private, although Utah Open Lands holds an easement to it, it's basically no-access

    So lots of stoke right now for snow rolling into higher elevations along the Wasatch. Don't get me wrong the time to start praying for snow is near (if not ever present), but is nobody worried about these early storms for BC skiing? This happened last year too and the snowpack was scary af all season long.

    *Maybe this belongs in a new thread for 18/19 by

    Its always a concerned with early season snow storms, but I don't really consider october snow as abnormal. I've seen the faucet turn on starting in October many times. I guess it really just depends on what happens afterwards....

    Right now, I'm just stoked that old man winter is paying us a visit.

    Yeah it does suck for skiing. I'm not overly excited for the snow, but am SO stoked for moisture and cooler temps. This summer has been brutal.

    As was pointed out above, the problem is that it basically didn't snow at all in the early season and the season totals we're really light.

    Jah willing, a 600 inch year will provide stability regardless of what happens in October.

    I take all that kind of stuff to Stitched Specialties (7343 S 900 E, Midvale, UT 84047, (801) 568-9119). They fixed a broken zipper pull for me last year.

    Yep. Fixed a zip on some patagucci pants and tailored some wader straps for me. They do good work

    Knock on a local Mormon families door. Bet most Mormon mom's 40+ can easily handle, or if you have a Mormon grandmother in the neighborhood her too. So many seamstress types in the valley working out of the house. Shits passed down the generations.
