    Definitely more of an Alta line, same as keyhole. From the tram you have to bypass a lot of good skiing to get there. Part of the hype, is that itís been forbidden fruit for so long. Back when the bird used to do the whole Peruvian gulch backcountry only in the spring you could do baldy chutes to zone five to the tram. That was absolute money on spring pow days for 2 laps before the sun got to it. Coma chute proper isnít anything great. But black jack chute and the little knuckle roll to spines into the run out is a terrain feature we donít have elsewhere in lcc (that little band holds snow on a really steep roll over pitch that our low density snow doesnít usually stick, to but was basically sun crust unskiable snow on this latest opening). White cliffs chute, directly skiers right of the current rope line far skiers right is the real gem (starts with a mandatory 10 foot air) but is currently closed (as it was in 2011-12, but was legit in the days of Peruvian gulch backcountry only). Iíll never complain about new steep terrain openings.

    What time is typical to be past that point these days to avoid that shit show?

    Any mention gets pushed off the plate long before it can be properly proposed.

    Come into the 20th century UTAH!! we need big parkin lots at both canyons bottoms.. ski trains Ö and proper freeway ramps all along I15.

    No reason for exiting cars to have a traffic light crossing every main junction; I15 is worse than lcc and bcc combined. And ,these damn tech companies built the corridor up before this modernization that is 40 years late

    Crawling through the Canyon but the stoke is alive! Going to be mobbing around the bird today with Bob MC SFB and maybe some other TGR aficionados. Blue jacket with avy vest over it. Change for 5c is appreciated

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

    Thought we were in for some survival skiing but ended up having a very enjoyable and well timed run down MC this afternoon before some bird laps.

    just a bunch of hype about nothing! snowbird patrol should have YEARS AGO let us ski that terrain. I'm happy to sign a waiver!

    Yep, skied it with Pat and a few others. First time meeting and skiing with Pat, hopefully more tours with him and that crew soon!

    Hey Wasatch folks,

    I'll be in SLC working remotely for the next 8 days and hope to get some skiing in. Brought the touring setup and also have the much beloved IKON pass to hit the resorts. What aspects/areas are skiing well after all that sun / will still be skiing well after a couple more sunny days? (assuming the small refresher Sunday night doesn't change things too much) Based on AKBruin's pictures and mall walker's reports, it seems like some of the North-facing stuff is still holding up? Or should I start looking for corn at this point? Most of my BC experience has been in CA...
    Would appreciate any advice, or even better, someone who can show me some of the goods. As long as there are no mandatory raps, ice climbing, or other serious mountaineering shebang, and we're not doing 10k vert days a la mall walker, I should be able to keep up. Beer and stoke will be on me.

    mall walker and others can chime in with perhaps better beta, but unless last night's storm changed things significantly (I doubt it did; less than .3 SWE at the Snowbird Snotel and Alta reporting 3", sounds pretty light), I think we might be in for some corn cycles.

    if not corn, then the only thing that will still be in is going to be high north. mid elevation north facing stuff was getting wet as of a few days ago.

    Solid stoke pics everyone!

    Doggie stoke...Dogs needed a tour...found some great settled pow in upper Porter yesterday with surprisingly no tracks.

    Dogs are stoked to be out!

    Not necessarily what you are looking for...but I did a few laps at Alta this morning in between work calls. Dust on crust except for a few zones getting windloaded that actually skiied fairly well. Viz was poor in the morning, improved throughout day but the sun still hadn't poked thru when I headed down around 2.

    ^sun poked out a bit at the Bird between 3 and 4 but it stayed mostly cold and windy. Anything available for transport was moving around pretty good up high.

    great pics on this page/excellent hunting teams!!!

    >>>the government running this shit show we call LCC & BCC must think we are idiots. They could pop up a 6 story parking garage in less than 6 months, if they wanted to.. and man the road with a fleet of busses. Instead they will likely spend the cash on homeless studies and transgender education in schools.
