Well I suppose somebody took some but it sure as heck wasn't me.  I skied my brains out on Sat.drove strait home and went right to bed so I could wake up on Sun. and do it all over again.

Mabey 4ster will post some.

Sorry, but my pictures from the weekend are only in my head.  Saturdays first run took me under the lift, over to Hollywood bowl & then a left turn over Rock Star ridge to Janis's & onto FTS for what was up to that point, the best run of the season.  At about 3:00 PM that afternoon my patience paid off when gate 3 on No Name opened right in front of me.  I went straight for my favorite line on the mountain & the only track below me was from a small snowball that gravity had taken down the falline to the gully below.  I swear I reached a euphoric state on that run that will last in my memory for some time to come.  Alas, on my return trip at about 3:20 PM, gate 2 opened & I got another phenominal run about 2 lines to the north from higher up & then over the ridge to the lower pyramid.

Sunday morning I found myself of the 2nd chair up John Paul for a 2.5 minute flight down through the faster more settled, refurbished snow to meet my clients for the day.  The nice couple from Sun Valley & I spent the morning finding our way through the low visibility at the top of Strawberry to more glorious untracked lower on the mountain.

Sadly, the day ended on a tragic note when a skier paid the ultimate price outside the ski area boundary.

From the Utah Avalanche Center:


Backcountry conditions are very fragile at this time.  Everyone please be safe!

Wow!  I guess I have to consider my audience......I was in the the 5th chair on JohnPaul on Sunday.  My 10 year old and I made "Almost" first tracks down the Men's downhill.  Big GS turns in the good stuff - very pretty!
