PCMR pics

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Inspired by Powdr's excellent pics I shot these this morning on my bagel run. As you can see, PC and DV have a ways to go- looks like Thanksgiving skiing will be at the Cottonwoods. I wouldn't worry too much for December(fingers crossed) if people are coming out, because the storms have been fairly dependable over the years and the Cottonwoods are always there. They just get more snow and are higher. Bonus pin up of my ski car. I'm not sure how to load four pics so I'll do them one by one.

The good news is that the temperatures have dropped 30 degrees so snow making should be ramping up. Funny thing is that the SLC folks are complaining how cold it is :

No- I live in Iron Canyon near the trailhead. The Aerie is one of my favorite spots though- the cul de sac at the end of Golden Way(where the car was shot) is the best spot in town to drink your morning coffee. The snow's not all here but it sure is pretty.

Yea, it used to be one of the best places to take a girl, not so much anymore.

Great views up there.

Hopefully they will get something open soon, either payday or homerun.

I'm not getting my hopes up though.

Mr. Crab, I think I've seen you driving around.

It is still one of the best places in all of Park City to watch the 4th of July Fire Works. My sister lives right down the street from that cul de sac

Crabman, How do you like the Element? I am considering that or the Pilot for my next ride.

I'ts great- It's perfect for my needs. I can put two mountain bikes in the back upright without taking the front wheels off and bungie them to the seat anchor bars (where the seats attach when they fold up) In winter I just throw the whole quiver, or whatever I'm taking that day in the back with all the gear and no worries. I only got the rack in case I had passengers. The tailgate is perfect for putting on boots. It's 4wd and has high ground clearence- the big tires make it a tractor in the snow and it's a Honda- so you know it's dependable. The plastic quarter panels cost $52 each- something I found out when I got rear-ended last year.
It's not as good a highway car as a Subaru (or a BMW) but that's not it's function. Not that it's bad- we have a lot of hairpin turns here and it's high profile, so you have pay attention. Driving wise, the stick version is probably more fun, but I got the practical auto. I've had lot of Subarus's and they're more fun to drive in the mountains but don't have the funtionality- ever try sitting on the back of an Outback putting on your boots in a blizzard? This thing you can suit up inside,pretty much. And my Subarus never had enough gear room, dog room etc. This you can practically hose out- in fact I did when my daughter barfed in it.
We have two orange ones in PC that I know of but I'm seeing more all the time.
It's got a 160hp motor- if I'd change anything, it would be more horsepower and a stick.

That's the kind of car I creep around in American carparks, photographing. No one believes me unless I post proof. Last year I got Elements, Scions, yellow Hummers and those weird Subaru 4-door ute things. The Scions elicited the best reaction though (and accusations that I'd photoshopped it).

When PCMR opens on Weds it looks like it will be Homerun, Treasure Hollow, Payday and something off the First Time chair. Hopefully the temps stay cool at night and maybe we'll be lucky enough to have this high pressure move away sometime really soon!

I'll be there bright and early on Wednesday. They are gonna have to blow a lot in order to get payday open. Hopefully everything works out.

The mid range forecasts are starting to show a pattern change starting around the 28th to 30th. Some show Utah getting whacked pretty good and some show light precip. This far out, can't be specific except as to the general trend. However, since snow is not even a possibility with current scenario, I'll take anything that changes status quo. Looks like Utah is going to have a tough thanksgiving Holiday.
