Bush, could you tell that from 2 photos and that video or do you know 4ster?

If you could figure out that's Alta from those 2 photos then I'm impressed!

nope thats where 4ster was skiing that day, right 4ster I mean there was untracked snow where else would it be?

I can normally tell from something alittle wider though.

this is CLEARLY collins lift, all the people are dressed up in there invisable clothes.

I've always known FTS as **** this sucks. That pitch is lower on the mountain & as far as I know it is still labled as FTS on the map. I forgot that FTG was changed to Shooting Star, but most of the long timers still call it FTG... **** that's good.

This shoulda gone in Name this run. Either way you are the winner.

BWPA, here's a replica of your picture of "ahem Collins" from today. Still full of invisibile suited riders:
