Amazing day of skiing --- really pushed my limits
We started the day at Deer Valley  -- skied a few runs there then ducked the rope (legally it was an adventure tour) headed into some steep tight trees that were loaded with Powder--- we worked thru that and ended up at Park City Mountain resort. 
 
We skied some runs at PMCR heading to the top of McConkey's  and then hiking higher to Scott's Bowl literally like hiking up a knifes edge. We dropped into Scot's Bowl and worked our way down.  Then up another lift and out of bounds again. 
 
This time a long back country decent heading into Big Cottonwood Canyon. We skied a mix of trees and powder fields most with a good pitch before hitting a cat track (think snow covered road) a mile or two down to Solitude.
 
In Solitude we made some runs working our way eventually to the Summit where we found  if we dropped into Brighton as was the plan the route to Alta & Snowbird would possibly close due to avalanche danger. 
 
So we changed plans --dropping Brighton and began to climb the " Highway to Heaven (or HELL) --- think long uphill traverse along a VERY steep pitch... 
20+ minutes of high heart rate at 10,000 feet  --- then a long back country decent into Little Cottonwood Canyon. ---thru Grizzly Gulch.  (the name was fitting) 
 
We ended up in Alta ski center and did a few runs there -- then had a great lunch. Before a few more runs at Alta.   
 
We finished the day in Snowbird with a run into mineral basin followed by a LONG run the other way down to the Tram station. 
 
Amazing day... legs & wind held up well ... but man it was STEEP at times.

tomorrow POWDER Mt again
