    Lots of debris down low still but plenty of room to ski to the skier's right of it. Bootpack up was punchy but it skied pretty alright for June.

    not a good freeze overnight. thought about skiing the semi-hanging NE face of Sugarloaf down to one of those couloirs... took one ski cut, it was already quite wet and unsupportable and felt sketchy so I bailed back to the firmer and less steep stuff on the n ridge, this was around 7:30am. where it hasn't been skied to pieces, there still is a layer of unconsolidated snow above 10k' or maybe 10.5k'. if you are skiing the baldy chutes or highboy or something that has been hammered this is probably not an issue though.

    also made it over 400k' for the year, which is neat. staggeringly the south facing stuff STILL continues to go the road (and is probably very consolidated) so that might be where I end up the next couple days. suicide is looking pretty fat and the apron still looks good too...

    edit: also alta for some reason groomed a trail from around cecret lake all the way back to the grizzly th. so if things are still too firm or too mushy down low... it's an option at least for right now!

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

    Made a quick trip to GBNP and skied the newly named Doso Doyabi peak. Skied one of the NE facing gullies off the summit for 2500 feet of perfect corn and then several hundred feet of decent but too ripe corn in the trees below.

    Looks awesome.
    They renamed Jeff Davis Peak?
    Kinda like taking down statues?
    Know the meaning of the new name?

    That looks like an awesome line, nicely done.

    Although I can't help but think "for fucks sake, what idiocy" to rename a mountain to placate some SJWs who will never even go there.
    Set my compass North, I got Winter in my blood.

    Doso Doyabi means White Mountain in Shoshone 'cause it historically had snow on it. Apparently.
    Say, how'd the NW shot look. Must be phat.
    So cool to ski that cirque into the bristlecones...

    NW was in for sure. Several lines looked like they went into the cirque, all were rock hard at the top.

    the apron is kinda sun cupped but the chute is skiing great - well consolidated summer snow. hardly a minute or two of dirt walking to the snow (but going fast)

    ^double suicide with double whippets. Overachiever!

    There was someone that took a fall into one of those melt caves on Olympus this weekend resulting in injuries. https://www.instagram.com/slcosar/p/...=1sri4sz2nvlee

    Killing it ZZZ! Love the Doso Duyabi stoke! Any chance you got a look and maybe a pic at the Schell Creek Range while you were up there? The wife and I stopped over in Ely on a trip back from Mammoth over memorial day weekend, but the weather didn't really cooperate for a ski tour so we went on a cave tour instead. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

    went skiing as well this morning. tried to link up with the mallwalker himself, but apparently the mall opens up way too early for me hahaha

    Little chute skied nice at 830, I'm guessing its done in a week. Getting harder to find smooth snow.

    I'd also like to take a moment to throw a big FU to UDOT. This shit is rediculous with the opening of the mirror lake highway. There is no reason they shouldn't plow it every year at the same time and have it opened by memorial day weekend. When colorado gets there numerious mountain passes open on a year that every drainage has multiple D4+ avalanches in it, and mirror lake which doesn't have one slide path that hits it remains closed. and utah has like 4 seasonally closed roads in the whole state. Total bullshit, all that snow is going to be suncupped by the time they get that road opened. And if you spent the last two weekends on Indy Pass outside of Aspen, Colorado, you would see what ski touring can do for a community. ...

    I only had my phone, so I've got a shot of it in the background but it's hard to see much. It looks plastered above 9500 feet or so though. I had tentatively planned to go back and ski North Schell and Moriah this weekend but had other stuff come up. Man, what a spring this has been, everything around looked about as phat as it gets, regardless of month.

    And I can confirm that there is no sun cupping in GBNP yet:

    I think you got it wrong bub. Let's stop naming peaks after white people that never even went there. Jeff Davis never set foot in Nevada. William McKinley never set foot in Alaska. These mountains already had been named by the native people.

    Made me happy when I went. Not that I advocated for the name change but it's hard to argue that the native name White Mountain sounds worse than the name of some confederate cunt. At least the Shoshones had laid eyes on the peak and probably gone to the top...

    Now to ski those NW shots in pow!

    I'm all in. From what I understand the trail-head at the upper Lehman Creek CG is open year around. It'd be a lot faster to skin in from there and ski back to the car. Just have to find a period where new snow hasn't been blasted by wind.

    You're right, they plow to upper Lehman CG and close the road above that all winter. Even with a SNOTEL not far from the cirque it's super hard to time a trip out there as the wind obliterates the snowpack like nowhere else I've been...
    When I was there in early May there was consistent snow within a half hour of the campground, I imagine in winter you'd be on skis the whole time. Looks like you can run up the shoulder of Doso Doyabi and probably do a couple runs without it being to big of a day!
