  1. next batch of photos from Alta, UT 4/17
  2. Today, 4/17/19 was one of the sunniest days in a while out here in Utah. I made my first visit of the winter to Alta using one of my two Wasatch benefit days from my Snowbird pass. Met some friends and had a nice day in good if slightly heavy snow at an amazing ski area.
  3. Yesterday I got to tour the DPS ski factory in Salt Lake City, fun and interesting!
  4. Dead Horse Point, Utah, 4/8/19, Colorado River 2000' below us.
  5. Wore this lucky sweatshirt for four straight ski days over Final Four weekend. It was getting smelly, but got the job done! Here at Crested Butte, Phoenix Bowl, with fellow Virginian (who moved to Gunnison at age 18 and never went back) on Apr 7.
  6. I hope to visit Telluride and Crested Butte this week with epicpass. Will report back here on how it goes. Have been skiing great conditions at Snowbird over the last month. Skied Deer Valley today with my Wasatch benefits from Bird pass. There is still a TON of snow at Deer Valley, it must kill them to have to close next Sunday with snow like this at the base on Mar 31, 2019:
  7. Saw a moose while snowshoeing over by Deer Valley on 3/12/19.
  8. Saw a porcupine in a tree today near Creekside Lodge at Snowbird, UT:-o
  9. The snow keeps piling up in Utah. Snowbird broke 500" for the season today 10 Mar 2019. It has snowed approx. 5-10 inches for about 5 days in a row. Some offpiste areas are really deep. I got to ski a couple runs with my son's Expedition Team today. He instructs hot little rippers. They wore me out. Gateway to adventure in the Tiger Tail area: These kids are middle school age and fearless All these photos are from a beautiful part of the mtn in the Gad Valley side.
  10. Getting in some frequent skiing here in Utah. Was at Snowbird today and it was really puking, ten inches in the five hrs I was there. I skied mostly off the Gad 2 chair which has trees and is good for storm days. Although I took one run down Great Scott: In the midst of it all they were holding some sort of junior mogul contest, these guys were good, esp. considering it was in low viz conditions.

  11. Brad, it was good to see you too. Our paths crossed a few times, but next opportunity we'll have to make time to ski together. I need more age-appropriate ski friends
  12. 3/5/19: Since my last post on our visit to Yellowstone I've put in a day of skiing at Snowbird and then today I made a double play at Park City, UT. I went snowshoeing with my wife in the morning and skiing in the afternoon. There is a big snow storm coming to the Wasatch this week, so today/Tuesday might be the last day of sun (hazy) until Friday. My favorite run at Snowbird on 3/3 was Wilbere Bowl as seen in this photo from the Gadzoom chair. Several little girls blew by me while I was picking my way down Wilbere Bowl. Snowbird is a very humbling mountain. This is the view from the place we are staying at in SLC for an extended period. I like to sip a drink at the end of the day while looking at this view out the living room window. 3/5/19 was a morning of snowshoeing on public trails near the Park City Ice Arena. You can see a gang of fat tire bikers in background. There were many cross country skiers on these trails too. In the PM I went skiing at Park City, and started by riding the town lift. Meanwhile my wife went shopping on Main St. This is a view of Jupiter Peak (center) from the Motherlode chair. I stayed on the lower mtn today and enjoyed this gladed run in the area of Motherlode/Silverlode. Now on standby, 2-3 feet of snow are expected in the higher elevations of the Wasatch Mtns over the next three days. That much snow is a double edged sword as it can really mess up the access road in Little Cottonwood Canyon to Snowbird and Alta. Those staying slopeside in Utah this week could be in for a treat.
  13. Spent Feb 26-28 skiing Big Sky, MT. Stayed at the Lodge at Big Sky. It snowed most of the time I was there. Never made a ride on the tram because it was hardly open during that time, but still skied some fun terrain and great snow. A friend on one of the many fine gladed runs. Another lady pow-buster: Friend from Calgary, AB enjoying Montana. Nice snow and terrain off the Challenger Chair. Goodbye Lone Peak, must return again. Next stop on Mar 1, 2019 was a day-long tour of Yellowstone National Park. We had Old Faithful almost to ourselves. We saw hundreds of bison, this group came right up to our bus. Saw lots of wildlife including a coyote about to pounce on something. Eagle nesting Lots of strange geothermal activity with wildlife in close proximity.
  14. 2/26/19, one foot new snow Big Sky, MT, a friend: another friend with seven friends in the new 8 pack, this is taking friendship to a new level 🙂
