    NOAA was calling for up to 34" at one point so there's that.

    Okay okay, I take back some of my cynicism and admit it did snow a good bit this afternoon, and there was some really good skiing off the tram. It's pretty special to catch last tram under conditions like this.

    Did you just add up the maximums from each 12 hour period? I've been wondering about this, but I don't think the numbers add up like that. Like if it says 3-5" during the day and then 3-5" at night, that isn't a forecast of 6-10" for 24 hours. I think the ranges reflect uncertainty about when the snow will fall. So the more you get in one slot, the less you're likely to get in the other. Or something.

    I got a notice on the phone on Thursday calling for up to 3 feet in spots. It also thought I was sitting in traffic today when I was watching tv, so confidence level is high.

    NOAA and "epic whiff" are basically synonyms in the Tetons in the last few (or more) years.

    I was on 25 short yesterday, which is very close. I saw lots of cracking, and some avvy debris in steep wind blown sections. The snowpack is very thin in many places.

    I skied a breakable crust on a southeast facing aspect in widely spaced trees and had fun. The avalanche report indicates that many aspects and zones are extremely variable right now with respect to persistent weak layers. Be careful.

    Not sure if youíre still looking but youíll get 40% off a daily ticket with your season pass. Only good until 1/31 though.

    Thanks for answering. We called it off. Too many things were saying no besides the avy report. We were just out for some exercise and to get away from the village. Left town today. Hope the weather turns for yíall.

    Looks like we timed our trip right....We'll be getting into Jackson tonight, JHMR tomorrow and Thursday, Targhee Friday and either the park or pass for some BC on Sat, Sun, Mon. Sounds like you guys have Colorado's persistent slab curse. Only problem is we'll be leaving on Tuesday right as the next storm arrives.

    High pressure in Utah this weekend. I have never been skiing in Utah when it wasn't a high pressure. I should start issuing long range forecasts based on my vacation dates.

    btw uglymoney we might get a decent dump before that high pressure, snowing right now anyway... this weekend looks like it's gonna be the best it's been this season in UT, which ain't saying much but it's something I guess

    Hehe I was surprised to see my name in that response. Thanks for the feedback. I meant to post the Wasatch rant in the mountain collective thread where I'm wondering out loud about where to go for Sun-Tues. SLC works better because the wife and daughter have one way tickets home Tues night from the SLC airport and I want to end up in JH for the second half of the week after I drop them off but we could do Sun, Mon JH, then drive down and do Alta/Bird Tuesday, then I go back to JH. JH has more snow. Decisions, decisions. Storm gazing from afar.

    Class got cut today, made it to the Ghee by 130 from IF, it did not suck.

    Also the pair of wreckers attempting to get the SLC express off Ski Hill road about half way up was pretty entertaining.

    The wrecker was struggling for purchase! The Ghee was kind today.

    Heading to Jackson for the weekend if anyone wants to meet up. Quick question-. BGs or Cochise for current conditions?

    Skied JH today, you guys on the east side on the hills have a mighty fine hill there. Had some fun in the hike to terrain. Off to Targhee tomorrow, forecast is looking promising.

    Today was a BG day, tomorrow will be as well. Itíll all be tracked by the weekend though unless youíre good at sniffing out snow and donít mind hiking for it.

    I was about to ask a similar question.

    Coming out a week from tomorrow, LP105s or BGs? Need to make a decision by tuesday.

    I'd go BG, looks like storms pick up late next week. No such luck for me, so I'm bringing Cochise for this weekend.

    anyone know where the pesticide gulch is mentioned in the avi report?
    can't tell from the pics and neither of us had heard of that name before- but looks like it's in the South of the resort zone...

    click on the event map on the avy website and you'll see it.
    or click on event detail, click on the row of the event you want to see, then click "map selected rows"

    The big gully on the northern edge of the east face of 25 short
