    Totally confused. When LCC is restricted its 4X4 or chains. IMO that is inadequate as the type of tires means just as much as the type of vehicle. Currently when they are checking vehicles they turn around two wheel drive vehicles unless they have chains. So a two wheel drive Camry with 3PMSF tires can drive up the LCC or BCC? This seems like a step back.

    They need to put a smart blanket policy for both Canyons November thorough April
    4/AWD or chains ( in the car if not needed on)
    I cannot tell you the number of times tourists rent the cheapest rental they can find to get up to the Canyon from whatever limited service place they found in Sandy or even to get to lodgeing at the resorts.

    Never forget some D bag bragging to me @ Solitude how he "beat the storm" in his compact rental to get up to the Inn @ Solitude. Typical Utah it puked for days and he got angry he couldnt get back down the canyon to get his flight. if memory serves Ill advised strategy and I wouldnt even dig him out ( outdoor parking for Inn Guests, good times) as there was no way he could logically, legally or realistically drive that car to the airport that day

    After 40 years of full time 'trollin in the literal sense, going part time.
    Question for the collective:
    If one could pick Friday/Saturday or Saturday/Sunday for working, what would it be?
    Especially for the obscure, not worried about powder frenzy in the central Wasatch,
    Would you rather have Friday or Sunday in the back country?
    Not just for the Wasatch...
    (Haven't had Friday Saturday or Sunday off in 30? years).
    ZZZ, Dan, Brutah, Boissal, et al, please sound off...

    FWIW, Friday is the new Saturday. Up Here, next to Rexburg and BYU Idaho, Saturday seems to be busier. Sunday is the Lard's day. All things considered, Friday may be the best for back country in the Wasatch.

    I like having Sunday off to have a weekend day off with friends that work a regular schedule. If crowds are your chief concern, Friday is a better day to be in the BC. Fridays are noticeably lighter than Sunday.

    I'd have to say Friday. Even for the obscure stuff, a lot of it has been picked off by Sunday. Friday has a decent chance of skiing good snow from earlier in the week. That being said....I skied a lot of good Sunday pow last year.

    Either way, I look forward to getting out with you this winter.

    On an unrelated note, it looks like there are still a few turns to be had in upper Bells:

    I was being dramatic.
    As usual.
    Don't have to pick days off / working 'til Nov. 16.
    Thanks! Appreciate the input.

    Actually this is a related note.
    Is the crest of the B.W. / Rocky Mouth divide more crowded on Friday or Sunday?

    When it comes to bumming, I would trust the skifishbum.
    I like having a weekend day off to hang out with my 9 to 5 friends, go to dinner parties, etc.
    But that may be a moot point for ya
    Fridays will be your busiest week days, but nothing will top the crowds on the weekends.

    Ok then. Poll is closed cause all the obscure mofos I asked to respond and more have unanimously stated to take Friday over Sunday. Cept for better half and social opportunity element.
    Thanks boys, looking forward to making obscure backcountry outings with y'all.

    Trying to squeeze in a little more high country bike action this week. Looks like that was the right call.

    The likelihood of running into a skinny-sticks mustachioed bro is actually higher on Fridays up there.

    It's true. I ran into two young bros with skinny-sticks in Bells last June on a weekday.

    It doesn't appear you ran into anyone based on your photos

    Not based on the pics above, but I caught up with and chatted with two young rippers on skinny rando skis at the base of Lone following a 3:00 AM start. I looked on Insta etc⁠—the TGR Wasatch thread isn't the go to place like it used to be⁠—for a TR afterwards but I never saw anything posted at the time.
