    I did 6 laps at powder mountain with my dogs this morning. The corn was fantastic, but I was sticking to lower angle stuff that was most likely a groomer in it's former life.

    I like the light beam shining down. Dshack let me know if you go up since I live up that way and we can get a few turns in.
    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    If anyone else is Frankin' it up tomorrow I'll probably be tailgating in the wildcat lot a good chunk of the day since my wife is still on IR. Black F150 with a shell and a roof rack, ask for change and maybe you'll get a hot dog!

    Sick photos man. That morning was great, and good to meet you. Better late than never, but here's a couple of pics:

    Also, yesterday turned out to be great. Non-mag Will and I took the slowest approach ever up to Thunderstruck. Considering the weak refreeze and forecasted early sun, we planned to get up early(started at 5), but once clouds settled in, we took our time and had a nap up top. Lightning Bolt looked good so we skied that instead.

    The actual chute section is steep and fun, although the snow was very inconsistent; it went pretty fast. Once above the big ass cliff and through the ramp, things got slower.

    Decent amount of sidestepping. As you went further skiers left, the exposure lessens, but snow depth decreases, rocks and difficulty increase. It was very tempting to punch it through, but it seemed like a prime habitat for sharks and the snow below(almost all debris and runnels) was not conducive to high speed turns.

    Successfully traversed from the bottom of the chute to (almost) the top of little superior, which was manky but fun @10am.

    I mean, I guess an avalanche shed isn't a tunnel but I kinda lump them in together. Avalanche sheds are absolutely needed and it's crazy we don't have them yet. They have them in the middle of nowhere BC.

    I thought the rain might've smoothed out all that debris but I thought wrong

    Maughan has been a proponent of a tunnel between BCC & LCC, that was what I was referring to. I think sheds might have a place in the solution.

    Apart from the debris, how was the skiing? Corn on the south aspect? I skied an east facing line today with about a 20-30 minute window of good turns before things flipped quickly to mashed potatoes, all preceded by a shallow refreeze with a barely supportable crust.

    Above the debris there was a good freeze (up to maybe 10k' which is roughly where I ran out of time) with maybe 1" of new snow on top, the underlying crust was supportable and actually the whole thing was relatively pleasant skiing aside from the 1500' of refrozen wet debris lol. I think a south facing slope that wasn't a debris field would ski nice tomorrow if we get a similar freeze. I descended around 8:30am ish though and there was no direct sunlight on the line at that time so I didn't get any corn window. Also I know that in the absence of well-below-freezing overnight lows, the quality of the freeze depends on loads of things this time of year, so to some extent I may have just gotten lucky.

    What elevation were you at today?

    10-10.5K or so to the top of Days starting in BCC. Given conditions it was more exercise than a real tour, whereas your line and those in the vicinity have potential if overnight temps drop.

    I'm hoping to harvest some corn Thurs morning, but need to be back in the valley by 8:30. Anybody got a sense for when E facing at 9.5k is softening up?
