BK, something you may not realize about Utah is that off trail skiing will always have rocks that you will hit. I've taken huge core shots in late March when the "base" was over 120." Its part of the game out here.
Of course, but there are an unsettling ammount of rocks right now.
I love snowbasin's strawberry area because the pitch is steep enough but not that steep all things considered, and it was not very skiable. Those DAMNED bushes were more irritating than the rocks, although there were lots of rocks.
2 more feet of base and skiing will be INFINATELY better. Pray for snow. Even a foot would help a lot.
Seems like at ~90 inches of base, all but the most elusive rocks are covered from what I've observed.
Then again altaskier would know it better than I.
I'll just note that my g3's edges are so horrible from a week of skiing. They are scratched/dulled to hell. There is only a few non-nicked areas, seriously. There is only one real core shot on my bases, although tons of scratches.[ January 13, 2003, 11:27 AM: Message edited by: bicyclekick ]
