    I infer "at capacity" to mean vehicles, not people.

    I always wonder how far people will push it for instant fame these days, to be continued for sure.
    If its who i think it is (snowboarder?), that guy will slide down anything. Really loves what he's doing.
    I demoed the TECH TALK JONG! pro model this spring and their performance was unparalleled which is good because I ski in a wedge most of the time - bendtheski, 2011

    He absolutely nails a rock right at the end of the clip. Could easily be a tib/fib or similar season ender.

    tearing off bitch ticket #1

    https://www.parksolitude.com/copy-of-tap-n-ski

    i would be displeased if I bought an Ikon pass to ski at solitude and could not ski 3 days of the week without paying for parking on a daily basis because they sold out of weekend parking passes before I got one

    would be interesting to see how many full passes solitude deems is the max too


    Also

    the Town of Brighton will be requiring parking reservations for roadside parking on SR-190 between Willow Heights trailhead and Guardsman Pass Road on select days
    This is in the FAQ but i cannot find any more details?

    They better differentiate between Solitude and Brighton parking otherwise you might have a bitch of a walk if your reservation just gets you a spot 'somewhere' on the hwy

    ^ lol if you park 1.5 mi up the road and come back to a ticket.

    One would think a ride share app would take off give all the parking issues. If I ever ski bcc/LCC on the regular again I'll just stand at the bottom. What sucks about this plan is the fucking meth heads smashing windows at the park and rides all the time .

    Ski Utah’s ski resort parking guide seems helpful for trying to decipher everything:
    https://www.skiutah.com/resources/ski-resort-parking/

    and it just goes to show how superior it is to ski in PC with free parking at the canyons….

    Knock on wood, but I often park at the PNR lots and have never had an issue w theft. I’ve certainly heard of smash n grabs and catalytic converters getting swiped. But so far hasn’t happened to me or anyone I know (other than someone on here few years back). The bigger issue with those lots is they fill up fast, typically by 730-8am (or earlier) on the weekends….

    I've unfortunately come back to that scene more than once.

    When I was climbing in Little a lot I used to leave a note on my dash saying "car unlocked, no valuables inside".

    So if I've got an IKON and I don't want to use my Bird day and just go to Sorry Dude and get there before 11am, it's $20 or $35 and the bus sucks? And I can't go to Alta anymore on the base pass?

    Kinda seems like everyone loses

    I don't even know if I get bitch tickets but I'll try and recover to avoid getting charged. Stoked for by Bird day and will plan on getting the most outa them by going bell to bell and getting rides from my friends with parking season passes.

    No way man. Parking is free at the base of the canyons. You just get to be stressed all day that all your shit will be gone and glass smashed while your stressed about crowds and liftlines while having fun skiing. Totally relaxing.

    UPD would patrol the lots, but they're too busy checking tires.

    Unofficial Networks posted an article about the sticker program, UDOT said they are advocating for the program "partially to get into healthy habits ahead of the implementation of Phase 1 for the traffic improvement plan for Little Cottonwood Canyon". So they put tolls in place, add a bunch of buses, restrict roadside parking and add a mobility hub at the gravel pit. As much as I try I don't see any connection between the worthless stickers and Phase 1, just more nonsense from the powers that be.

    Funny considering I pulled a UPD rig out of the Collins base area (trying to drive up the mtn?!) at midnight a couple nights ago.
    He was going to investigate a flashing light on corkscrew.
    It was a snowgun.

    Back when Sgt. Slaughter, (yes, that was his name) was running the unit it was pretty solid. Apparently less so now.

    No seriously, was he on drugs? WTF
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow, and flying through the air

    A decade ago UPD came to the conclusion that canyon patrol was too cushy of an assignment. So they decided to limit the amount of time their officers could be assigned to canyon patrol, I think 2 years is the max. So now instead of having offices that know the canyons, they have a revolving door of canyon rookies.

    "it was my last try, too!"
    -"You better not try again after we tug you out"

    He didn't like that comment much, either.
