    Jerry New Year...

    Good turns had in Days yesterday...Winds were nuking with heavy snow starting around 3pm, We got a couple small soft slab pockets to pull out with one running a couple hundred feet, enough to go for a ride... upper elevations were getting real slabby on our late exit around 4pm. ....Watch them slabs give it time to settle.

    ...a few days ago...sooooooo 2019

    Beautiful morning! Full on red snake up BCC at 6:45

    New snow quite reactive on N-NE facing slopes over 35 deg. Step and slide easy out there.

    IDK about backside (I'm back home now), but lapping wildcat-keyhole-tram-high baldy-shoulder was unreal around noon.

    All explosive work. South facing terrain was very active due to yesterday’s wind.

    Only instabilities between flag and Emma 4 were very minor.

    Had a few friends ski it this morning already, said it got wind hammered since yesterday.

    Anyone know the deal with the UTA buses being so late this season?

    I read on the UTA website that they doubled the number of buses up LCC this season, but so far this year not a single one that Iíve been on was anywhere near on time.

    This morning, for example, the up canyon bus was 15min late and the down bus was 35min late. Iíve only made it up about 15 days so far this season but itís been similarly late each time.

    Last season the buses generally ran on schedule or close to it. Yeah, it was crowded but at least they ran on time.

    Doesnít seem like they added any new bus service to LCC, let alone doubled it.

    Whatís more, even if I get on at the very first stop at Midvale, itís still late. Like how can the first stop be late? Wtf?

    took just a few runs at alta this AM but they were poppin'. First run down backside was trenchtown faceshot-every-turn wigglin good times. high yellow trail down through suzies. snow on the lower microwave out catherine's was surfy and fun too. left around noon as the cars were lined up on the bypass to get into town, cars parked on the road below the pdog, and cars parked on the road all the way down through the bird...and a constant stream of cars driving up canyon at that hour too. wtf

    this weekend's gonna be bonkers

    I've noticed more buses in the canyon, but every time I see them they seem to be stuck trying to make the turn from the bypass onto the main road when superior is closed

    probably why they're late all over the place. But yea, bus shouldn't be "late" from the first stop in valley when it's going up...especially in the early AM before they've taken a run up canyon.

    good luck..the Bus system is totally screwed up

    -no where's near enough parking

    -dangerous walks from the parking to the pick up spots

    -Zero crowd management ..busses show up to the canyon base full already>we need dedicated busses that only run the 2 canyons.

    -no ski racks... every time I rode last year;I was stuck holding my equipment while standing/Not Fun!

    -Drivers are poorly trained..travel far to fast on the curves... m fuckers are hitting the corners at 40mph on a snowy daYs.

    -no early Busses...let me/us up before the crowds!!! /make us wait for a pile on is ridiculous.

    -Staff eats up some of the best parking spots at the UTA lot...those cars that are there before 7am,are mostly employees...thx 4 stuffing the lot full jerk wads , you could meet up anywhere to carpool and use the further parking lots. By 7:30 all the parking for the Bus is gone.

    -More Busses on Powder days !!! why they would not have a policy or plan like this ,is beyond me.

    Wow, tragic...helps put the bus woes in perspective.

    At the end of the day we are just sliding down a mountain on 2 sticks of wood.

    Went up to Dog Lake from Big, up Little Water, then over to the Wasatch back. Lots of wind damage up high, and it was getting warm on the way out. Wind was moving snow around up high. Still a nice day in the Wasatch.

    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.
