    Wasatch 22/23 - Gondolas, grooming highboy, and other comical anecdotes

Good to chat with you buddy, sorry we couldnít make turns.
    Great to see you dear leader and chat it up.
    I was worried that joining your group would have damaged the wee ones.

    We'll see you in graubunden next year!

    Saturday was all time at Alta, bought some new sticks and tooled around with a few groups. I cruised the whole exit from the Albion (kid in daycare) and was home in sub one hour. Felt existential lol.

    Sunday ventured into Neffs with a couple buds, we had to reassess due to the traffic for the canyons, but man was it the right call - snow was deep - fresh lines down Abyss, Hobbs Coulie, + some secondary no names. No instabilities, wind or people - dare i say the exit was even pleasurable (for once).

    Limited pics as there was more video taking then anything, but the booter up Hobbs is in!

    Good riding with you too, you really came with the peer pressure i needed. Glad I waited out the closure, the drive down was a cruise.

    Rode 9-3 at bird yesterday and my legs are toast, came down feeling like id been running a jackhammer all day. I dont think I've had a day without a powder turn this year, its really been incredible. When non/casual skiers ask how the season has been I have to check my enthusiasm lest they think im a crazy person.

    Jesus, this thread is tough to read with the destruction of the Wasatch. Hoping to ski Snowbird next Monday with my kid, thankfully he's an early riser and doesn't mind predawn starts.

    Wanted to venture lower canyon since its been a while since many of the those lines were truly in. Made the jaunt up to Triangle, then booted the Coalpits to make sure i had no energy left.

    Probably. I was about 6th or 7th in line. Green 2-tone jacket. Almost bailed, but it was definitely worth it.

    I need to go to Utah.
    Utah?
    Yeah, Utah. It's wedged in between Wyoming and Nevada. You've seen pictures of it, right?

    So after 15 years we finally made it to Utah.....


    Thanks BCSAR and POWMOW Ski Patrol for rescues

    today rocked at the resort

    Soft velvet turns and fresh piles of PoW to pounce on

    Sunny/ was nice to actually see further than 10 feet !

    The super deep days are so fun, but days like today pay just as big of a return emotionally

    Not sure what you mean, why don't you tell us what you heard? Those tracks looked like they were laid down by people who knew where they were going although WTF do I know about random tracks. I was thinking the long shit exit didn't look worth the few clean upper turns though. To their credit the better fun ways in that drainage were not safe to ski.

    What I mean is I can see powder 8 tracks off the backside into the drainage. But I thought someone said SAR had to pull them out of the drainage It seems the juice is not worth the squeeze. West facing but seems like other shots make more sense. But what do I know it just looked cool like a powder 8 competition. TJ Burke?

    SAR pulled out a guy a week ago in that area who thought he was going down Sisters bowl and eventually decided he made a wrong turn and got rescued. Today's tracks were done around 1pm and a different unknown story.

    I took the below pic from his starting point earlier today, it just didn’t feel right with wind board throughout and big wind loading down to the right. No signs of control work unnerved me - probably unsurvivable if a small pocket released and yer swept off more cliffs than the pic shows. And it’s a bit blind too, ha.

    Here’s to all the lines we would like to ski but probably never will. It got skied by someone today though - maybe someday it’ll make sense to me but I dunno, ha. Gate to it is rarely open anyways. Kudos to all the ripping snowboarders I saw today on this peak and definitely saw a few ripping skiers too
