Been here in SLC all week. Skiing has been okay but was getting scratchy and not what I expected coming all this way. Still packed pow got creamy some afternoons and still fun! Now yesterday was a blowout. Literally 60 mph winds closed the lifts. 80 folks trapped ont he lift at Snowbird they had to hoist them down one by one on ropes!
But it looks like the snow gods smiled on me we got a foot of fresh overnight and myself and Vince F. are heading out to Alta. I never have been in powder so this is a first for me and I am excited. Yeah, I will probably be wearing a lot of it and probably on my face, but who cares!!!!!
And more is on the way! Now I am trying to figure out how I can stay another week!
Will report back and hopefully have some pics and video of face plants, yard sales, and maybe even a decent powder run. I hope. Any Bears gonna be hitting Alta look for the 6 ' 260' nose guard looking guy with blue/grey parka, black pants, and a gray Head helmet that makes me look like Motor Mouse! Vince looks normal so he's hard to describe.
