    Was thinking of heading up at 2 but apparently it hasn't snowed up there all day?

    It was 03. i remember well since my oldest was born in 04. The wife had a conference in SLC early december. She couldn't ski being due in about 2 months or so, so I spent each morning leaving the grand american with a bunch of neurosurgeons shuttling them to Alta each morning. I was with a different group each day depending on who was skipping the conferences. Each day kept getting better and I couldn't believe the coverage and snow depth for so early. I'm almost certain they had 100" in October that year. I remember thinking I'd be skiing a WROD, but happy nontheless, but it turned into wall to wall mid-winter skiing and almost no one was there. Good times.

    Butler skied great this morning. New snow is a little inverted, high density on lower density snow. Slab avies in the new snow noted as most of the sketchy area at the start of butler fork had slid naturally.

    It has definitely snowed up there. Creamy goodness on the top half of the mountain, a bit heavy on the bottom half. Hardly anyone skiing and no lines which was a nice change of pace.

    Today was a sneaker day. Best day of the year at Snowbird, unreal! Mother Nature did a putting green grooming job with the heavy snow, and then 6" on top. Wind was blowing the snow from Mineral over to the front side, fresh tracks every run. Hero snow. Sick. I had no idea this morning it was going to be that good.

    Snowbird has their new app out, R.I.D.E. Hopefully it works to cut down on canyon traffic.

    That's a pretty innovative thing to have built, and (as a guy who gets paid to code stuff) it couldn't have been cheap either. I hope it helps, it looks like a cool idea.

    So good today! Really surprising.

    Powder Mountain officially sold out for tomorrow, so that plan is off. Thinking maybe Snowbasin tomorrow now instead, or just brave LCC. Anyone gonna be up north tomorrow?

    Jeeepers it's been fun out there. Dense snow and strong winds does a good job of filling in the cracks. I've skied some in bounds stuff that I didn't know existed. One of these days I'll grab for a camera but I've been too busy playing catch up. It's gonna be a crazy weekend.

    Snowbird has already talked about partnering with other Wasatch resorts on it’s use. Their marketing manager (DigiDave) has already mentioned it’d be a good tool for backcountry users to arrange rides as well.

    After watching nothing be done to alleviate the problem I’ve gotta give Snowbird some kudos for attempting something new.

    It’s a bit clunky right now but I have faith they’ll get it together.

    Sad vibes up at Alta today. Some chick hit a tree and had to be taken out via Air Med. And then on the way out, one of the houses on the bypass road was going up in flames. Literally. There were flames coming out of the roof. Two heavy rescue trucks, 1 pump truck, 2 regular fire trucks and 3 ambulances came up the canyon as we were leaving. Scary. Hope everyone is alright.

    In other news, Alta was skiing very well today. West Rustler was soft and chopped, snow stayed pretty cold I think. Didn't get up till 1 but was very pleasantly surprised.

    I laughed at the reported 6Ē. Sure yah it was trenchtown
    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
