    Haha, I knew about the waffles, just kidding around. Never had one though, always too excited to get rolling. FOMO and all, ya know?

    The waffles are really good, no doubt. That's part of the problem.
    Lotsa winter sightseers would debate going up for a beer or hot choco; but for a crispy warm waffle slathered with nutella or brownsugar butter they'll wait in the cold.

    Winter walkers on the box used to be 5 in 1000, now it's likely 3+ per box/100.

    You wouldn't think it makes a difference but it does. After unused troller spots, ski schoolers, workers then walkers, it's like 70 maze skiers. Being 101 bites.

    I'll be stoked to ski full box laps again. Big mountain laps are on the menu.

    I got out for an evening skin up Fred's with my girl yesterday. Skiing was surprisingly good coming down.

    I like the waffles, don’t ban them. Such a good pow day snack.

    Waffles should be marketed out of Casper restaurant. Let walkers go up Sweetwater Gondola only. Almost zero impact on skiers then.
    And sell them right outside of Nick Wilson's.
    Those dumbfucks have never been able to market food and bev. How many food failures have gone thru the top of the gondy spaces.
    Nothing at the nutshack above thunder base area or the building at Bear flats below Sublette base.
    Hell, only the waffles have ever been succesful and as I predicted, they doubled price upon first success.
    They were originally 4 bucks apiece. Cheap, hot and filling. The only thing on the entire mountain that a local might buy more than once.
    Now I sip coffee as Dad buys 4 waffles and four drinks and it costs about $60.

    Especially the after 2pm waffles.

    I actually talked several groups of sight seers out of going up last February late in the day. "It's socked in up there, you won't be able to see a thing. They stop serving waffles at 2. It's still an hours wait from this point (to load the tram) , and by the time you get up top you'll just have to come right back down."

    Experienced all sorts of tram line clustfuckery this past season. Hopefully the tram line has a little less angst to it next year.
    Why do people think that crowding up your back will get them on any quicker?

    All ears on a beartooth trip later this month.



    Hoff’s did a really good job with the wrap on my new whip, he said it was one of the most laborious jobs he’s done. Thanks rideit for the recommendation and noparking for getting it there.

    It’s odd that they never sold waffles at the base.

    Moved out East a few decades ago and EVERY hill has waffles at the base.
    They suck compared to tram waffles. But they sell a metric shit ton of them.

    Side story. Many years ago rode up with the young ones for a waffle.
    It felt so wrong to be skiless in the tram line.
    It felt even more weird riding the empty box down.
    PS. It wasn’t a powder day.

    This.
    WhyTF isn’t there any food on that side of the mountain? What was wrong with the nut shack? Lots of space at the top of Thunder they could put it, or some food thing, and would be a cool location.
    If it wasn’t so windy at the top of Sublette that would be even better.

    When Snow King has a fancy new restaurant on top with better views of the Grand the walk-on pressure on the Tram *might* lessen a little bit?

    -Comparing and contrasting the JH tram with the BS tram is a fool's errand. Other than both being jigbacks, they have very little in common.

    -Skiing is not a democracy, equality for all and whatnot. No, expert terrain should never be trampled by intermediates just as experts should never buzz beginners at Mach3.
    When you're a solid advanced skier, then we welcome you onto the tram, Average Joe gets to hone his skills on AV, then Casper, Thunder and Sublette. Not on his third day skiing.
    I don't stand in the cold for the beginner terrain. But I'll wait like a mad mofo for the expert terrain.
    Uninterested in sharing it with anyone that can't ski it decently.
    And I show tons of peeps their first turns in the bowl. If they're good, we go blast lines and secret pockets.

    How many times have I explained to others about giving me some room to stretch and dance.

    Once you've ridden a few hundred boxes, it's def weird to not be hauling gear and marching back onto the box...almost wanna take the kids up then send 'em down as you ski down. meet them at the dock.

    My friends and I scheme to open a breakfast burrito shop at the nutshack for 2 reasons. To have food at midmountain and a reason to be at thunder before the public. Maybe call it First traks shak.

    That spot has been underutilized for over 30 years. It has massive potential but in this town, I expect it'll fail a few times first...
    If it's amazing, it could actually pre-empt the skiing at the King. A gondy to the summit will be cozy and fast instead of slow and brutalissimo.

    One can only hope they go there instead.

    And skiers will be way more likely to give 'er a go.
    Continuing getting their asses handed to them.

    And yet, the grand plan for top of the tram is flush toilets. Fugggh
    And a real restaurant. Double fugghh

    Interesting to see recognizable terrain that oddly seems different.

    Those 2 trollers look like Larry Dietrich, master electrician and Rod Newcomb exum Guide iirc; That is the old 105mm howitzer methinks. Firing from the Snake river ranch land below the Hobacks/lower Faces.

    I believe that's an old 75mm pack howitzer. The 105mm m101's the village used to have were a fair amount larger than that.

    I love the old maps.

    That one blows my mind.
    Tram up
    No groomers down
    Powder for days.

    It must have been siiiick

    Damn nice, you are correct; I completely forgot about the 75mm.

    Maybe it was a 105 up in the boneyard, where the TVVFD is now?
    Remember the old volly fire house? Lookers right of the 4seasons, across from Holly's office?
    That was a party hut fosho.
    Remember Holly?

    Just a reminder - the bike swap is this coming Saturday (5/15). General admission is 11am, early bird access at 10:30 for $10.

    I’ve never been before and don’t need a bike myself but have a friend that would benefit hugely by riding something current. We’ve got a couple plans that would have us out of town this weekend but nothing concrete yet.

    Question: for those of you who have went to one of these things, would it be worth it to hang around for the bike swap?
