Well, my last trip to Whistler I went via Copenhagen, and this long planned SLC trip got a bit rearranged by having to go via San Diego because of a customer who had to be serviced (unfortunately, not that kind of customer). Bouyed by reports of decent fresh, I was hoping this week would be good. Well, let's see -
I thought this picture from my room was an interesting dichotomy -
And while in San Diego, it's smart to at least take advantage of the local culinary delights for lunch as us least coasters don't have
In-N-Out to enjoy
So finally out to SLC, and went to the relatives to pick up my gear. Being a first class gear whore, even I was stunned to see all the stuff I have. Culling of the gear will be starting shortly.
So, went to Canyons today (no longer "The Canyons" with new logo and paint job all around. So who convinced them to waste all this money on something so superficial. Oh well.
Things looked like they might start out well with the uber-camper in a lot below the Cabriolet -
Anyway, up the hill I go, and conditions are, well, ummm, they're OK. Nothing great, and without the recent storm they mention it would be pitiful. Much of the good stuff was roped off, and there was a LOT of brush sticking through everywhere -
So anyway, the day ended early due to boots that were beyond painful, and lots of tired. Of course, then I went to levelnine to get clamps for my new Legend Pro Riders, and walked out with another set of boots, and two sets of poles. AAAARRRRGGGGG.
Unsure whether tomorrow will be Snowbasin or Snowbird. Figure it out in the morning.
