    For those mags passing through Yellowstone and GTNP, it is rare to see Wyoming so green- especially at this time of year. It’s normally very dry here.

    Last week she texted me a photo from what used to be Elevated Grounds. It made me very sad. I loved that place when Zach & Stacy ran it.

    I got over that one a while ago.

    We have some funny memories from the VC. We had a birthday party for one of our daughters there. It was at 5:00 or so, after the ski crowd had mostly thinned. Dom made a bunch of pizzas and Mrs. Suit had the table in the corner all decorated with 10-year-old girl decorations. She went out for a minute and when she got back there was Coolio (I think he played the Moose that night) sitting at the birthday table. She had to ask him nicely if he could move to the bar.

    Back in town for good now. Hope you all are doing alright this summer. Curious if anyone has any recommendations for a residential roofer to help me see how it's hanging. I've heard it might be cheaper to look for someone in IF as well

    I know how to look at your roof.

    With a beer in hand. Maybe do a Jay.

    Welcome home. Epic trip and I'm sure many enjoyed the Reports/photojournalism.

    You didn't miss anything. it snowed. It's gonna snow again.

    There's a beer waiting for a ' Mag ' from Nutmeg Choi over at the village gas station; on their chalkboard by the liquor store. You deserve it.

    Got pass yet? We all do...

    Yo NY - things are good. Knee is coming right along. Feel fairly confident skiing will be good to go although I'll prolly reel it in a bit this next season.
    Just started riding the Moto again and working. Feels good.

    There you are sneaky!!!!

    Yup, over on the 'Karma Couloir' chalkboard it's still up there. Saw it in the spring and it took a sec to figure but then - Hey! checkitout!

    Saw Super Gaper driving by yesterday methinks, he hollered. Working and living the dream...
    Watcha doing Schwerty? Let's go fishing before Halloween.

    Who out there in the Wide World is coming to ski JH this next season, Mags?

    Making plans for Nigel...

    I might detour for a visit between SLC and the wind Rivers in a few weeks depending on friends. Haven't been in too long and there are people worth seeing

    Prices go up for full pass by about $650 on sept. 1.

    Git sum...

    At the ski area, a few new things, they have shaved off the top of the departure area from the summit. Trying to change the snowdrift geography beneath incoming car 2. Where you click in then ski past Patrol shack on your right, ropeline on the left, that knoll is gone and it's a smooth runway towards Corbets now.

    They replaced the 25 year old steel water supply pipes up Lower gros ventre with nice green plastic ones. Maybe 10-12" water mains for a few miles up that run took all spring/summer.

    Lowest dick's ditch has been denuded. Summer grooming. First time for that.
    The roll into lower amphitheater below horn's hole has been reshaped so all angles of entry have no more blind spots.
    New entry for tickets beneath the tram dock. Hopes to be less anxiety inducing than the last 50 some years.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Sure has beena nice cool green spring here and summer is around but not hot or hazy yet. Only the first plants are thinking about croaking. I've been working between 6300-7500 ft above and it's still 40's in the am and 72-84 pm. Perfect for outside work.

    And motorcycling. Finally got back on that horse. And performed some successful wrenching to boot so no more erl leak. Good to go fast again. about 120 HP for 700 lbs. full load. Fresh Dunlops. Miles of sagebrush straightaways or twisty mountain passes with barely any traffic.
    Bruce SS, let's take a lap before the snow flies.


    I hope it snows this year.

    Thanks again for showing me around last year!

    Hell yeah, sweet. Pfluffenmeister and Goniff.
    I'm psyched to ski with both of ya, 2 years running.

    I agree it's gonna be a good year.

    Knee's on the mend: Full ACL replacement harvested from quad,meniscus trim and partial MCL. I'd give it a B minus right now.

    Meister - the mags in Big sky are top shelf fun. Reach out or I'll connect ya. Might even go up for a day. Gotta go crush the north summit snowfield.

    I musta skied with 25-30 mags here last year. Man that was fun. Some for days, some for a coupla laps. All cool in different ways. Dig it. Then both BBI's and 2 trips to Big Sky last year. Prolly 30 more mags.

    I have 5 - 1/2 off passes. Mallwalker gets dibs on one cuz' I gave him one last year for one of the only blackout days. Didn't even know there were any. Other 4 up for grabs for poor mags or a parent springing for the family, oof.

    Most leftover skis/hardgear at 50% off in the valley. Who needs what?

    I think we might need to even make extra inspections of the huts, to ensure safe structural integrity

    and kokomas- about your roof- shieet. I just finally, after a solid year of being on the lists, got Fortress Roofing out of SLC to redo my roof
    but off-season may bring more opportunities for locals to have the time to chk it out. or I can help hold the ladder while DJ checks it out lol
