Leaving tomorrow after 6 days of skiing. First 3 days were just groomers, but pretty fun all the same. Had a bunch of other stuff to deal with anyway. As others have noted, then snow started. skiied DV yesterday. good fun with 21 inches over night.However, as everyone has noted, it was pretty heavy for utah. Still fun tho. Skiied solitude today. 46 inches in last 36 hrs. I know my limit for powder now. At least heavy powder. they opened Powderhorn 2 for first time. Went down face which was basically 4 feet of pow. Ended up falling lying backwards with head downhill. My right ski was buried under 3 feet of snow. Everytime I moved, top half of my body kept sinking. finally some kind souls took pity and dug me out. Interesting experience, but makes me a little leary of dump over 36 inches. Great if you have the skills. I do not yet. it was great to see Utah get this dump as I return in 2 weeks.
