    I guess a random photog was shooting scenics and he saw the guys on the face. He posted up on facebook and found the riders and sent them the pics.

    Bummer, looks like AltaBird will stay on the Ikon. I'm holding out hope that at least the number of days will go down.

    That's great news! and don't you worry looks like the number of days are remaining the same. I've been loving having an Ikon pass this year and I'll definitely be getting it again next year!

    Here's my stoke contribution, as you can see I used my ikon pass a lot last week. Good times with ya Mall Walker

    It has been so long, I forgot how fun Snowbird is. Thanks Bob for the intel on the parking and canyon scene. For anybody on the fence, just go. The skiing will be great for the rest of the year. Big and Little are buried.

    Educate this goob on why a bus isn't the answer.

    despite holding out admirably to this point the low stuff is finally starting to take a beating, hopefully the next storm brings a cold front. if you have anything remaining on your "must ski this year" list with a significant chunk below ~6500' you may want to think about getting after it...

    Yeah, despite the crowds / ikon issues , etc, inbounds at Alta Bird are skiing fantastic now. The base is fat now, I can't remember the last time I saw so few rocks even on Cirque ,etc. Had a great long weekend w my wife and little dude , the 5 year old was loving the "bear trails" off Sunnyside at Alta and then grabbing some Subaru shwag on the Tram deck Sat. Had quite the sleeper powder day Friday , don't remember 6 inches feeling that deep in a while . You guys are having a great season , hope it keeps rolling into March! Props to the Kinderbird instructors who killed it w the little man. He even got to hang under the Tram as it came in when we ran into his instructor at the Winterfest. Everyone really went above and beyond for him.

    Headed out to SLC this coming weekend to stay at my GFs parents place in PC. We both have Mountain Collective passes and we have 1 day left at Alta and Bird each but don't fly out till Monday evening. We get in real early on Saturday so i was thinking about driving straight from the airport and doing a lap or two in Grizzly Gulch. Never been there but it looks like the spot to go if you have zero local knowledge and don't want to work too hard (which she will not haha). What are the BC snow surface conditions currently like in that area? Will we be running into areas of dust on crust from sun/wind crust that formed earlier this week? Looking through the UAC it looks like windslab may be an issue especially with the predicted shifting winds, but any ground level beta is appreciated. If there is another spot more convenient to PC with easy route finding, not too strenuous (<2000' of ascent), and somewhere we can kind of just follow the lemmings up to a zone let me know. Gracias

    Griz is a nice walk. Accesses some shorter goods, both N + S facing.
    The S facing in upper LCC will be good skiing if it keeps snowing.
    Should be a lot of people to be near on Flagstaff, the Emmas, and such.
    Enjoy the Wasatch!
    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    Low elevations are still good but there is some really deep isothermic mank below 6500'. Let's hope the cold seizes things up a bit and we get a refresher. Meanwhile, no fresh snow = couloir days and with such insane coverage you can explore some really dumb approaches. Pro tip: skinwax doesn't weight enough to justify taking it out of the pack...

    due to some navigational difficulties (I blame 5am start and fog) we didn't make it very far up little pine this am but the bottom of that is full of heinous avy debris and crust where there isn't debris.

    the bird skied really well this afternoon but doesn't anyone work on Fridays anymore? WTF!

    No shit. I pulled into Wildcat at 1:00 to find a packed parking lot. Lines weren’t bad though and the skiing was good.

    Friday is the new Saturday. Collins is busy in the morning, then clears when the non locals all stay on Sugarloaf & Supreme.

    Just a quick question? IS Snowbird doing the usual Spring pass this year(had an Alta one also in the past)?

    I have come up the start of April for the last 8 years and gotten this, can't seem to find it on the website.

    sleeper conditions out there this morning. overslept my original plan (which gets bumped to tomorrow) but made it out with the pup up to about 8800' NNW, almost wished I brought fatter skis. was expecting dust on crust, but got really nice, surprisingly deep feeling powder turns.
