So, on the way out west, so might as well spend a few days in SLC.
Up to Snowbird this morning. Hmmm, is this a good sign? 10:30 and no one's in line?
Well this is why - in the northleast it would be "packed powder", but here it's an abomination:
Nasty, scratchy. I took the MX88's out, and still could hardly get a good edge in. Is this really Snowbird?
Later I went over to Mineral Basin after the sun had been on it for a while. Was it edgeable? Barely. Wow, in 20 years I've never seen Snowbird so marginal.
Thankfully some things never change - boarders getting their gear on at the "Keep Moving" sign. Duh.
Not sure about tomorrow. Maybe Canyons or Snowbasin are better. The lower elevation may give some spring condition stuff. Arrrgggghhhh.
Next week is the Gapic soiree in UT- pray for a LOT of snow, because this is REALLY dismal. I mean they need a few feet before this becomes the LCC we know.
