Park city mountain resort

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Today started off with light snow and winds appx 15-20. Started off down homerun and claim jumper to warm the legs up, Spent about 4 runs off Kingcon lift after that.  Then headed to Thaynes and hit a couple blacks before heading to lunch.. After lunch conditions were blizzard like, made it up the crescent lift only for it to be shut down for wind a few minutes later, at the top had to be 45-50mph, i couldnt even get off the lift a few times as the wind pushed u so hard the chair was actually pushing u off the ramps.  At one point it literally took me 20min to ski down a connecting green trail called 3/4 load, i could not see 5 feet left or right or in front of me had no idea where the trail was going or what danger lurked ahead.  Headed eventually back down to silverload and motherlode lifts and glad i did , snow was now over 6 inches, boot deep in some places, froze my azz off , wind was horrible but great to ski some powder today.

Nice they got snow.  PC is supposed to get another 4" tonight and another inch in the AM with the winds dying down.

 

Somebody up there likes you as the next 9 days will be great skiing.

 

Here's the link to NOAA weather. Typically the mountain gets more snow than forecast.
