Uhh, did you see the set of tracks up in McConkeys yesterday, just next to the slough from AC and the other tracks far looker's left? That was me skipping work for the day, and I can honestly say it was more than worthwhile taking off for those turns! Particularly in the years since I'd given up ever skiing bottomless snow in McConkey's again. Up top yesterday, was sweet, even the three laps I got in on Scott's were some of the better turns of the year, really consistent and surprisingly deep thanks to the 60 plus mph winds from the day before... keep it coming!

Didn't see the tracks yesterday but I did see some over there this morning. The word is the lift will be operating by Sunday

Wow that might even make it worhtwhile to head over to PCMR. NOt taht there will be enough to go around. But no complaints -- tmrw is looking like another beaut.

Guys, can I say..oh man I hate to say this..but I am WORKED. Skiing hard for the last two weeks never a day where I didn't feel like I needed to go up for at least an hour or two. Yeah I know not expecting any sympathy LOL but anyone else feeling just a wee little less pop in their legs?

Wow. Jupiter had the longest line I've ever seen on it today. Not even that good for that kind of line.

I skied fora little while this morning But it was just to scary. 3/4 of those out have never heard the term ski in control. I don't know what you call what was out there today but it wasn't powder that's for sure.

Hmm. Whzzup? The current forecast has the temps cold enough, in the 20s, so the snow shouldn't be esp. heavy. Different conditions than predicted?

The crowds: beginning of spring break....? :

No it was pretty warm today..snow was definetly heavy esp/ compared to what we have been getting it actually looked like it rained a bit down lower -- the groomers were a bit rough and even some genuine ice in a few spots, but still very nice in a lot of places esp. in the trees and higher up of course. Still, the cutup was a lot of work. Just got to rememeber patience and keep it loose -- those skis will come around. Apparnantly The National Brotherhood of Skiers is in town which is refreshing in the land of wonderbread.

Utah you know how it is, people who don't have a lot of expereince skiing don't know when and where it is good to ski. As always, runs like Chicane and Sidewinder were parking lots with a lot of stalled vehicles scattered around but otherwise it was surprisingly quiet. But like I say I'm kind of exhausted at this point. But BIG STORM tmrw and COLDER too.

Hows conditions at Alta and the Bird?
post #280 of 366
Everything right now is a really wet, sticky snow. Should be an interesting day tomorrow.

Sounds like folks like us used to Cascade Cement may have an advantage :

Much lighter snow this morning. Good dump. 6" in my driveway means 12" on the mountain. Ski ya later....
post #283 of 366
I am jealous about the snow report. But please spare us the update on the state of your colon.
post #284 of 366
Speaking of Wasatch wierdness it looks like PCMR picks up the prize. 9" more than the cottonwoods and the Canyons is only reporting 4. whatever..I'm going skiing!

hmm. what kind of weather conditions produce an outcome like that?
post #286 of 366

500 in at Alta

Alta hit 500 inches today. The storm isn't over yet--maybe another 12 by tomorrow.

Its actually very typical. Even though all of the resorts are w/in a few miles of each other as the crow flies, slight differences in the direction the storm comes in etc.. can make the amount of snow at different spots vary pretty big. Oh and there was way more than 4" at the Canyons in a lot of spots. Pretty dry too.
post #288 of 366
What kind of conditions produce that kind of outcome? Well first off.,the moon has to be full. Then Park City skiers and boarders hold a secret ceremony that requires a virgin. I can't tell you anymore becuse it is a secret. Since virgins are hard to come to find in Park City. We have to settle for only one or two days in a season when we can brag that we got more then The Cottonwood Canyons.
Mcconkey's wasn't open today.

Nyuk nyuk nyuk. Moe, whack that guy, willya? :

My god- another 5 inches in the driveway- no snow yesterday, just enough of a lull for patrol to open up areas that stabelized (half of Alta was closed Sunday) now another dump.It's like every day a pow day.Wish I was on vacation, a ski bum, or retired. As it is, it's hard to get employees up from SLC. Reports I hear from all the resorts are fantastic. I'd skip DV though- too crowded. I'll post more on that if I get the time...
post #291 of 366
Boy, I was so close to booking a trip to LCC for this week, but decided not to because I am trying to be as frugal as possible due to the fact that I am getting engaged within a month.
post #292 of 366
I guess another storm is coming in this weekend as well, Sat and Sun should be dumping.

Huh? It was snowing at the Canyons all day...another 2-3" while we were up beginning to fill in the tracks. Or did you mean yesterday as in Sunday? It looks like the weather patter just changed significantly -- a high coming in. Still going to dump today.
post #294 of 366
Oh yeah- I forgot about that little lake-effect blizzard in the afternoon...
post #295 of 366
The last few days the skiing has been nothing short of spectacular!
post #296 of 366
The next 3 days promise to be outstanding - weather wise! There has been a bounty of snow over the last week there are plenty of stashes out there for those in the know. So get those cameras out and let's post some beauties for all of those poor souls out east (sorry no disrespect). I plan to do my part before the storms roll back in on Sunday! Anyone planning on being at Snowbasin over the next few days speak up and we'll put you on film. TB:

Well thank God for that. I really need a pow fix. This month has been terrible for me. Only going to get 3 days in but it will make up for the month. The question is: Snowbird or Alta for Sunday? Can one place open more terrain than the other when it dumps?
post #298 of 366
go big- get the Alta-Bird ticket. It's been really swell around here lately.
post #299 of 366
Alta or The Bird? Alta or The Bird life sure sucks when you have to make such hard decisions Crab is becoming a true Utard he is saying things like "swell" and "Oh my heck!" Might have to wash his filthy mouth out with 3.2 Beer

McKonky's sure was sweeet today!
