    Watching some crazy guy skiing an east facing chute halfway down the south ridge of Superior.
    Looks absolutely nuts!
    I think maybe they are trying to kill themselves.
    Folks like this give skiers a bad name...
    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    I think that's a wrap on the season for me anyway. There's probably less than 300' of dirt-waking in total, the snow in the chute is nice, though the rest is pretty cupped. At least 4' of snowpack in the chute proper still, so it'll probably still "go" in early Aug...

    Nice! Yeah I think I'm fully switched to bike/camp/water mode now. Planning on getting some turns in August for sure though!

    Great photos (especially for a gray beard). His run on Stonecrusher reminds me of a run I did on Gunsight in 2011 a month and a half later in the summer (when I was also a gray beard at age 66).

    Main chute still goes, but don't think it will last much longer with these temps.

    Watched a guy drop in after us tomahawk for 50'+ into the rocks on the side almost at the bottom. He got incredibly lucky and escaped with just a few big cuts.Click image for larger version.

    Found - Pit Viper Sunglasses

    Found on the ridge just above the Guardsman Pass Winter Closure Gate. Looks like they melted out of last winter's snowpack. Still in perfect shape. PM me if you think they are yours.

    saw legit progress at woodward taking the 10 yr old to uop. sounds like sometime this season. also, uop is investing 11M. guess that's why winter training prices have gone up over 100%

    Wait, Vail doesn't want the PC ski race and freestyle programs to train on their mountains? That may be a first in the ski industry......

    Dang, a world-class mogul field with night skiing right near SLC? That is awesome for kids and even World-Cuppers. And a new Woodward Camp around the corner from it, too.

    That’s the word I hear from friends in the know at PCMR. Apparently doesn’t generate the revenue of a tourist from Texas so fuck em.

    Vail is going to try and spin training at UOP and at Snowbasin as “better” than at PC.

    Snowbird has had to limit the numbers for their race program for the first time....families are jumping ship I figure.

    That really sucks. Most ski resorts boast about their race programs, especially when those programs produce as many Olympians that have come out of the PC ski teams. Look at steamboat, they claim any Olympian as a local who ever set foot in that town haha

    Another reason to hate Vail I suppose.

    Hi ... I posted this question on the general forum as well, but then realized maybe this is the better spot to ask?

    --------

    Wondering if anyone could share some names of good instructors in the Cottonwoods? I'm flexible to any of the four, or Deer Valley.

    I started later in life (40s) and have grown to an intermediate skier. I'm looking to continue to improve so I can get comfortable on blacks, and also need ongoing help in the powder (since I'm midwest and we really don't get to ski powder).

    I've worked with a couple out of Alta, and both were great, but neither would video me, even though I would ask. And so often in certain situations, I had a tough time comprehending what they were talking about when they critiqued me. I work with a coach here in the midwest and he videos everything and it's amazingly helpful.

    So I would love an instructor who is of course good, wants to work with someone trying to grow beyond intermediate, and ideally would be willing to actually video me as well so I can see what they're talking about when I'm not understanding something.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas

    PM Rontele. He used to teach at Snowbird and is the authority on private instructors in the Wasatch.

    Thank you.

    I had a recent college grad ask me about working this winter at Alta. I went to the website to look at available positions and they have few openings other than ski school instructors, apprentice ski school, ticket sales, snow making and snow removal. No lifties or restaurant openings listed. Last season they were short lifties all season long and were hiring in March. Also Alf's restaurant had a sweet deal of working just two days per week and getting a pass. Anybody have an idea of what may be going on?

    ^I noticed that as well the other day. Maybe they are running behind on posting lifty/skier services stuff?

    I was also hoping to see Mountain Hosts listed. Having hosts at the bottom of each lift as well as the top would help with the influx (IKON) of skiers unfamiliar with the terrain. I answered more questions last season than In my previous 30 years at Alta. Last season it was only weekends and holidays.

    WASATCH STOKE, CONDITIONS, OBSERVATIONS, AND ASSORTED DRIVAL 18-19

    I don't think department heads have yet to open up the hiring process online. Alf's is likely to be a junk show next winter due the remodel. I'd recommend being a lifty. Actually pretty good ski time and you get to know the whole mountain. Plus there's a bunch of company living options for lifties.

    Those positions that you mentioned are operated by the lift company (alfs, watsons, lifties, ski techs, etc), so as altacoup said, that department are probably behind posting job openings. in my experience working there, they were always casual and late to post openings, which probably doesn't help them fill all job openings. who knows, maybe that's their strategy

    I think locals would pay extra money for Mountain Hosts to tell ikoners that they are not wanted and also to never stop on the High T, especially when the pain train is coming by. And maybe how to buy discount plane tix back to TX.

    Lifty jobs will be posted in about two weeks. Not sure about other departments.
