    Dipped into Alta for a lap today through the armpit gate, variable was the word. Blackjack traverse was quite sticky.

    Planning on a lap or two tomorrow am at Alta if anyone wants to join.

    2:30 at the Bird was pretty nice, winter like snow piling up.

    High north facing this morning skied unbelievably well for May 20th! The sun was starting to do its thing by the time I left around 9 but anything in the shade was great! Jealous of the guys I saw coming out of little chute but I was rolling solo and had time constraints.

    saw your tracks! under same time constraints so hit stonecrusher. snow was good but needed to dodge the wet slide debris.

    It sure is nice when they turn off the lifts at Alta, and everyone is drawn there like moths to a flame. Meanwhile, the rest of the wasatch grows silent as the hikers are kept at bay by the snow and the few remaining backcountry skiers instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano to a little place called Alta.

    I know it's a high bar here in the Wasatch, but you gotta be in the running for most vertical feet before sunrise

    375k’ so far, should make four hundo without too much effort, but that’ll probably be my last milestone unless I get a really major motivation boost lol

    Im stoked that a great winter has turned into a awesome spring for you guys. Glad my sacrifice gave you a good second season. At this rate there may be some snow left when Im healed enough to ski again lol.

    Anyone else see that we are tied with the 690" record from 2011 at the Bird. I know marketing numbers, but still!!!

    Here's to hopefully skiing on the 4th!

    That makes no sense. The Bird's SNOTEL peaked at about 75% of the 2011 max. Either this year's average storm had 25% lower density snow than in 2011 or the Bird's marketing team's exaggeration factor grows at 6% a year... It's been a spectacular season but we never really touched 2011 and barely tickled 2017. If felt much better than 2017 for some reason, probably because it didn't snow at all in 2018.

    The 210 days in a row makes my weirdo radar ping.

    Yeah at that point it's kind of a sickness/obsession, and I question how often he's doing because he has to vs. he wants to.

    I got that sickness, I can't stop, won't stop. Good skiing yesterday after work, west aspects were already crusting up but south facing was nice and creamy even with the 8:45 drop. Probably another week or so till the easy access to upper cardiff, days, silver ceases.

    Yeah, I certainly wasn't claiming it was any sort of scientific record, but I didn't realize we were still that far below 2011 on the SNOTEL. Damn marketing numbers getting me going after a few beers!

    Snowbird lies like crazy, and gets away with it. If top gets 9" and bottom 2" they report 9". If the bottom gets 7" and top 3" they report 7". I am also pretty sure SB includes their preseason snowfall in their #s, and Alta doesn't. I recall some time in Feb or March this year SB had reported 60" more snow than Alta at that point, which was laughable.

    Spin masters.
