    Checked out the Nordic Express today. It is awesome to see a new option for riding around here. 4/5 Ogdens. Will reserve 5/5 Ogdens for when they build a lift to the top

    Damn. Sorry you guys are still dealing with this.

    What was the driver of that truck doing? Looks like he’s on the gas and trying to steer into the slide out. Just can’t figure out why he’s on the gas.

    Panicked and stomped on the gas instead of the brake.

    Jesus that was awful to watch. Looks like they were tailgating or just not paying attention, car ahead braked for the corner, so they slammed on the brakes and got loose.

    Looks like truck guy may have bounced off that rock wall and launched into the creek.

    *edit to add
    I only mention that because a former neighbor slammed his Ford truck off the wall above the S curves and ended up in the trauma unit

    Jesus that video. Subi had no chance.

    My kid is still stuck up canyon. Which seems like a small inconvenience after seeing that.

    Son says there was no ice at all on the road. He canít figure out how the truck did that.

    Big powerful engine. Big right foot. Tiny frontal lobe.

    My guess is they drifted far enough into the shoulder that the snow caught the passenger side tires. They panicked, cranked hard left, and stomped on the gas to get back on the road. When the front end caught enough traction to get back on pavement, the wheels were turned too far left and across the road they went.

    We just got home from the day at Soli. Some traffic this AM, just 15 min longer than usual, but getting there at 8:15 usually gets us front row and plenty of time before the grom's race team starts. Today, 8:20 was 2/3rds of the way down the lot in the back row.

    Good skiing, with nice super light topping over yesterday's snow. Crowds were large, but manageable.

    Got word at 2:30 from instructor that canyon was shutting. We loaded the kids up with more food, took more runs, then played what seemed like a thousand rounds of 20 questions in the truck as we waited.

    No one around us seemed super agro on the way out or anything. We just dealt with it. Rolled out of Soli lot at ~5:30 and made it to just above spruces. Sat for a good 80 min there, as I guess the 2nd tow truck came and took the cars up and out.

    Terrible situation. Vibes to those in the crash. Seems like there needs to be a discussion in a few days about how they decide to keep everyone up canyon for hours to get cars out. There were scores of people waiting outside for the bus (they were good and didn't drive private cars), kids from programs waiting for parents that were in the valley, etc. Brutal evening. Glad to be home.

    I hope the folks in the subie (and the dumbasses in the truck) are ok. I would imagine those involved in the extraction probably weighed the inconveniences of those ensconced in their vehicles versus those involved in getting two vehicles full of fuel and oil out of the creek in an ever decreasing light and temperature environment.

    That video is gnarly. Feel bad for the subi guys and those that were stuck up there.

    Had my own issues Saturday at Deer Valley. Hit the cornice on whatever the furthest chute lookers left is called. Had a great landing and a couple turns until I went to slash the left wall, had both my skis hit some rock(I guess) and double eject, making my head and upper body spear the left wall. Overall, I'm okay, but not much is left of the helmet (lol at my old ass newschoolers.com sticker), and it likely saved my life, if not kept me from a trauma bay.

    Use those helmets y'all, and don't don't underestimate the power of the rocks of this low-tide season even in sheltered high north terrain.

    Damn this thread is brutal right now.

    Vibes to all, especially those involved in the accident. Glad to hear everyone made it alive to the hospital. And I hope everyone that was stuck up there is home now.

    Sorry to hear about your injury Bossai, I hope you have a fast and full recovery.

    Glad to hear you were wearing a helmet skiATL! That's gnarly, and remarkable that you are mostly unscathed. That helmet is obliterated.

    Be safe out there y'all.

    Probably correct on passenger side tires on the shoulder. My amateur view of this is the right rear lost traction and started the fish tailing. I noticed the front tires were cranked to the right at or after it crossed the median. So he/she attempted to correct the truck direction, but it kept going left. I understand the acceleration part trying to gain traction, but it may have made it worse with the high torque.

    So who accelerates on a narrow downhill road to get traction when you have oncoming traffic you are clearly going to hit immediately?!

    I need to check out for a bit, I can't deal.

    My sediments exactly. Left solitude @ 2:30. Reached the mouth just before 7

    Positives I got to spend the day skiing with my daughter. Helping with her math homework in the canyon waiting for the road to clear.

    Skiatl take it easy for a few days. Last time I cracked a helmet in half it slowly became apparent that I had a concussion and was still a bit messed up. Took a couple weeks. Be careful.

    Accident: Truck was still laying on the gas as it went over the edge. See the coal rollin out of the tailpipe as it leaves the road. Maybe hitting gas instead of brake by mistake?

    I witnessed a suicide attempt in LCC 25+ years ago. I looked up in the rear view and guy was gaining on me like he was going to ram us. Next thing I know he just launches off the edge into space. It was pretty wild to watch.
