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

    Snow falling today was super manky up to 11,000' and probably beyond. The snow was pretty much saturated with water. Could be a stout crust if we get a good freeze tonight.

Got to the flats and the cloud lifted, luring me back for another run. It came back just in time to screw me out of a proper Davis Gulch run then left as soon as I gave up and headed down.
    Saturday it came with me up Red Baldy to make sure I couldn't ski Icefall. Made me freeze to death on the summit and forced me to drop the NW face and deal with the 12 or so people who were going to go somewhere else but then decided to follow the skinner (lazy bags of dicks, use your imagination or help break trail!!). The usual pattern followed: cloud disappears, I run back up the skinner, cloud pops back out of nowhere for a full whiteout experience. This time I tried to wait it out but eventually got bored of shouting in the wind, threatening Jeebus and pleading with Ullr. The second I hit the flats it cleared out. Decided to head up TriChutes in the blazing sun and what do you know, the cloud felt I was ready to drop a few hundred feet off the top and came right back. Skied the whole shot by feel. I'm over it.
    Love your posts...but maybe you should shower more often?
    Sounds like Pig Pen in Charlie Brown; a cloud that follows you around...
    Icefall is one of the better runs in the range when in condition...
    Sorry you pig penned it!
    Time spent skiing cannot be deducted from one's life.

    I call it the angry storm cloud of injustice. It's targeting me because I bitch more than anyone else skiing the range... It got fresh ammo on Red Baldy, I popped something in my harmstring and the cursing was out of this world.
    Can't be about showering, Ms Boissal would have me sleeping with the cats if I got too grubby.
    Icefall is my new nemesis, I needed a fresh one after ticking the NW Twins. There's always that one run that you can't get right no matter how many times you try.

    You guy should rejoice though, guaranteed blue bird goodness this weekend, I'm taking the cloud with me to Idaho for a few days.

    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.....

    I wish. Used my "sick" karma last Wednesday and Thursday. I'll be up there this weekend though if any mags want to make some turns or BBQ. Will have my grill out somewhere in carpool parking for high boy. Will drop pin with the location Sunday AM in this thread.

    The turns were real good at Alta this morning with whyturn. Pretty manky by early afternoon and they shut pretty much every gate. Tomorrow is another day!

    Days like today are why I love Utah. I had a meeting that ended at 9:30 in Sandy and I was skiing by 10:15. By 2:30 I was back in the office.

    Stellar morning at Alta, was skiing on a demo ski from my shop and one of the Griffon heel pieces failed (teeth on the locking mech are super rounded so won't lock in a position) on my 6th lap. Luckily right after that they closed High T and Wildcat anyway so not too upset haha

    if you have any unfinished business up there, it still goes on skis to the parking lot, but I doubt that'll still be true in a week...

    Fook yeah, nice work!! The N couloir is a sleeper beauty, doesn't really see much action but it's very worthy, especially now that it's completely filled in. In early Jan the choke didn't go and we had to sneak into a ramp skiers left, now it looks like the choke is almost gone and the couloir is more than 20' wide. Amazing how much snow there is. There are dozens of sneaky lines though those big cliff bands that probably only go in a 2011/207/2019 type season...

    Edit: may have already posted this but it shows the area you guys sidestepped, just left of buddy Drew, it was all rocks. The cliff above him is GONE in your pic (it's not the big guy on the exit).

    Ogden mountains were supportable on west faces two days ago. I'm wondering if that wind board deteriorated to punch through, or if it turned to corn. Anybody find any supportable out there this morning?
