    Hopefully this isnt the beginning of the end:

    To support the Governors urgings for people to stay home and maintain safe social distancing, Powder Mountain will be closing for skinning and hiking effective immediately for the next two weeks. This includes any and all types of recreation on the mountain.

    ^nice! I was up in that area yesterday and it was remarkable how different it was above and below 8500'. Night and day.

    Went up for a quick Alta lap this morning...best skiing IMO was the 6" on top of the groomer. Maybe I just brought the wrong skis for the day but even the N facing corner of the shoulder around 10200 was pretty heavy/grabby

    Great light on the walk up, awful light on the ski.

    Did get to observe a group of xtreme sledders across the way though

    Snow was great up high, grabbier lower but all in all stable. Ski cut produced 0 result.

    damn i didn't know this disease made people insane....
    one of the best pow cycles of the season and people want corn???
    I'll always take powder over corn cause powder now just means more corn later.
    that's some crazy talk right there, are people acting like idiots? you betcha, but people always act like idiots.
    I'm gonna keep skiing like every day could be my last and hope that it doesn't come to that.
    except today, today I made the wrong terrain choice and so I did one lap and went home. Its getting to that time of year when its worth migrating to higher slopes.

    WASATCH STOKE, CONDITIONS, OBSERVATIONS and ASSORTED DRIVAL 19-20

    Actually a light rain/rime and solid melt freeze cycle would make for better corn than more pow. Especially when the snow gets skied as it heats up (hot pow). And if you think this is one of the best cycles of the season you must be unemployed now and have more time to ski. Because January thru early February was way better. Iím spoiled. Have over a hundred days before this shit started. If everyone lives everyday like it will be their last then weíll only make the end come that much sooner. Look at it this way. Would you rather ski pow or your grandmother die?

    The mar123 pow surf demo tour had a stop at Guardsman tonight.





    These things are so much fun. It was nice to switch it up tonight and feel like a total kook trying to make it down some lower angle trees.

    Noboarding might be the best BC exercise right now. Makes a 20 degree slope so much fun.

    The hordes of people car shuttling Powder Country, no practice of social distancing, and tons of illegal parking likely helped force this decision.

    Powder, corn, windboard, refrozen mank, ice, I'm an equal-opportunity super woke guy and I ski it all indiscriminately.

    I'm bent cause I still have to go to work for random and completely useless meetings. It made me miss last Friday which by all accounts seemed to have been THE day to be out. Buddies skied a line I've been wanting to do for years and which has rejected me 4 or 5 times. They got it in all-time conditions while I had to endure some nonsensical business development talk while drooling on myself looking out the window. Then I perused the recent UAC obs and seriously considered calling if for the season. Five seconds later I decided corn would be a better option than not skiing and would also ensure that I don't have to read any more of these lessons in excuse making and poor judgement rationalization.

    People aren't acting like idiots right now, they've somehow transplanted the entire Wasatch to planet Fucktard and are engaged in a contest to decide who will rule that world forever. The field looks like the 2016 republican primary line-up and we know where that led.

    So, nope, not Strava, douche bag, and no HR rates, or timed segments, don't see any of those listed in the picture... It was more to show the route and run VIA the GPS tracks....

    Based on the skinning to get into this area I was really thinking the down was going to terrible. It was surprisingly enjoyable.



    Since it seems like some negativity is required in every post right now, WTF is wrong with the people hiking Bells canyon. Moths to a flame? Have just the smallest bit of creativity about where you go for a hike.

    ^ nice! any sense of how the temps / sun is affecting the north facing stuff? the breakable crust was pretty heinous earlier in the week

    N was staying pretty cold and soft. Anything not steep and N though, watch out! But the crust was smooth and supportable where we did hit it.
