    More like a mile. Not too bad. Little tricky knowing where to turn into the woods...pm me if you want to chat on the tele.
    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    The snow line is pretty high down there but I agree, there shouldn't bee too much schwacking. I'd recommend a vehicle with a short wheelbase for the approach cause if you can't reach the flats up high you may need to practice your 500-point U-turn skills.

    ZZZ, I think its a good idea! I'd ask to join ya but I think I have to do chores on saturday, I'll double check with the boss tho

    Alta is still skiing well especially because they're still using snowcats to service their snow guns which gives you a nice 10 foot wide surface free of sun cups to ski to the base

    Went across the street this morning for a little multi sport fun. My bet would be that the apron is toast soon.

    Oh man, I've wanted that for years. I'm locked into a family trip this weekend. The ridge traverse is supposed to be spicy.

    A mile isn't bad. If I can motivate, I'll get in touch.

    Oof, full size, crew cab here. That road is the mental crux for me.

    I should honestly be getting stuff done too. But skiing is stuff?

    I've heard the ridge traverse is fun, but looks like the best access now would be straight up the gut with pons? Especially with the forecasted temps.

    You can always hike from the bottom in tennies...I've always walked from the bottom lacking a proper vehicle.
    Man, what a year to be laid up. First year without a tour in 45? And one of the better snowpacks especially at lower elevations.
    Woulda hooked up with you mofos otherwise...living vicariously through y'all...

    Yeah, that might be the call over melted out chossy exposed ridgeline in AT boots. Might still be warm enough for rockfall in the couloir, though.

    I never drove, always the passenger, and always gripped as hell. That road is good for ATVs but it always feels like a truck is going to roll off into the creek. When we hit the snow line a few years back in a double-cab long bed Taco we hadn't seen a spot to turn around in 20 minutes. Buddy turned around on the spot, took a lot of patience and upper body strength on his end to muscle the taco around and some real effort on my part to stay in the truck when the nose was hanging over the creek...

    Interesting. That may match my waning commitment better, both in approach and drive, then previous goal.

    I try to do all my tuning myself to save $$$, but I've got about 8 pairs of skis (not all mine!) that are overdue for a base grind. Any shops still doing tunes, or should I hold off for the fall? Also, anybody had luck getting a volume discount?

    Thanks!

    Does anyone have a definitive answer about Snowbird's uphill policy after tomorrow? Fair game to hike up to Pipeline this weekend or are they going to claim that there are still operations going on and it isn't allowed yet? Are tram bumps going to be allowed as well?

    Not sure what's going on after tomorrow, but tomorrow is going to be a shitshow. They're desperately trying to move snow from the ramp down from the tram onto Regulator. Word is that skiing Mark Malu and beyond will require walking parts of the RTP. Huge amounts of novelty skiers are expected, probably more than the tram can convey to the top.
