    People who take the bypass thinking it will be faster are gigantic assholes. You're creating more merging and slowing the whole thing down for everyone.

    Today wasn’t bad either. Still some nuggets to be found, although the pickens will be getting slim.

    This is true. After we drove away, my son said he should have asked for some chips.

    Road wasn’t near as bad today, but I rolled out at 3 to play it safe.

    Not sure if you should thank me or if I should apologize for that skinner, it was a bit on the sporty side...
    Something definitely got munched up there, we saw a bald eagle flying around, wonder if that was his snack!

    LCC has become a pretty toxic road last few weekends. We sat for a while on Wasatch getting to Alta Saturday, but it was easy going to White Pine Sunday after 10 (and after i realized i forgot my boots). The way out was fucked though and the smell of brakes is still in my nostrels.

    On the stoke side, i saw a massive backy on baldy shoulder Saturday. Guy went HUGE! I know this isn't newschoolers, but i was super stoked to shoot it.

    Amen! Skiing edgeable windboard in steep terrain was a nice change of pace from all the stable pow we've had so far this month. And couloir skiing always delivers some hilarious shenanigans.
    We were the 3rd party on the booter this AM and saw 2 more coming up. Fortunately nobody dropped above us to make the rope work more exciting.
    Recipe for a good time:

    The choke section below the rap provided endless entertainment and tons of material for blackmail. Let’s just say any ski longer than 150cm doesn’t fit and some seriously inventive “skiing” is involved.

    Excellent dudes. Given the good base and generally low avalanche danger, I will be scheming a touring, paragliding, IKONic Wasatch mission soon.

    let me see what excuse I can come up with instead of just admitting that I am afraid... how about "all of my skis are longer than 150cm and I refuse to compromise the integrity of my turns"?

    Excuse rejected.
    It goes with sporty sideslipping (read: involves your ass touching the rock a lot) on 186cm planks, almost as classy as making turns. It's not pretty but it's a great way to detune the tip of your Down skis without wearing off a gummy stone!
    I haven't skied all that many lines involving a rappel in the Wasatch but this one was probably the least scary. Getting to the anchor was way less gripping than on the NW of the Pfeiff where the bolts are a few feet above the cliff, right in the steepest part of the line, and you have to clip the bolt while standing on blue ice with your tips bouncing against the rock.
    The anchor is also way more inspiring than the random bushes or ancient nuts around loose flakes I've rapped from elsewhere in LCC.
