    Spill some Utah beans....

    More groveling from Denver, all help appreciated.

    Snowbird, Alta and Snowbasin will be visited this week.

    Bird/Alta- better choice for the weekday, basin on the weekend to avoid crowds, or are they all the same?

    Any lifts/areas within to look for (((the goods)))?

    Much thanks.

    Paging BobMc...

    Seriously though, there has not been much snow here in a few weeks. Just keep your eyes posted on the wind directions.
    Mrs. Robinson, you're trying to seduce me.

    I hope you bring your own snow

    we have a fantastic base but the pow is all but gone.

    I found some suga on some of the north facing tree lines and cliff bands but you gotta work across mostly death crust to get that

    As I feared.

    Nothing worse than being somewhere so great, seeing the terrain, and can't ride it for squat cause it's firm as hell.

    I guess I knew this, just hoping it wasn't true.

    Y'all are getting nothing in the mts out of this (((storm)))? It's putting 5-10 in CO according to the denver news, I was hoping you'd get the same.

    Probably won't do much bc- don't know the routes, and I'm a capable rower on the slave ship but prefer to have someone with better knowledge beating the drum.

    Oh well...maybe the weekend will drop some love.

    Thanks for your help! Maybe we'll see you guys on the slopes. I'd offer a meet up, but our plans on where to be what days are half assed at best.

    We might have some drinks in SLC thu night though...someone told me my hotel is right by the red room? red door? lounge, so I think we'll be there.

    Wooklar:
    Unless you got business in SLC, go to Aspen. They got 2 new and still snowing this morning and I hear the mtn is skiing good.
    Plus you got the x games and the Powder party on Friday night.

    Can't abort- my girl got 4 nights free at the SLC marriott in a trade out, so we're in SLC. 2 feet at Aspen, really? We could hit Aspen thursday, then head on to SLC...might not be a bad idea.

    How's the crowd with the x-games in town? I heard someone spotted Ted Nugent, cause it's a free for all.

    3 nights at the city center marriott, one night at the downtown marriott.

    Not sure which is which- for the 3 nights we're right by the tabernacle if that tells anything.

    I need to work at DIA. We can stay for free almost everywhere we go...if I could fly on the cheap, we could have weekend Alaska trips!

    Yeah, but make sure you ask for a non-smoking room.....

    Fire At Downtown Marriott Hotel
    A fire burned tonight at a downtown Salt Lake City Hotel.
    The fire broke out in the downtown Marriott...on State Street.
    The fire started in a banquet room that was being set up for tomorrow...where some skirting caught fire.
    No one was injured and only a few rooms were evacuated.
    The buildings is being aired out right now...and investigators will try to determine just what caused the fire.

    I'm not worrying about "it" too much, this fukin weather is starting to piss me off. the valley is fuking discusting, and any Jinx, anti or not, doesnt look like is gonna change a fukin thing.
    how is that for a rant, aw fuck it....

    besides I never really said what was looming, just that it would be OK. and OK in my book is being up and above this shit..smog
    the good news is that we are gonna set an all time smog/haze record tomorrow, bring it on, maybe I'll go for a jog with my grandma, and my push my 2 year old in a stroller....

    oh and maybe tonight I'll burn all that fire wood I've been saving for clear day!!!

    I'll try to score that shop-pass for you plus a day off from work (which I've been at for 11.5 hours today...) for me and we'll go get stoned with Tanner at PC Thursday or Friday.

    Nizzle?

    Yo Phunk, I'm not much of a park rat but if you don't mind a tag along, I'll huck my meat with you and Frizzle on Thur or Fri in the park. Nothing but sunshine up here in PC.
