Day 8

I would've been happy with 6" given the forecast. I was positively tickled with 14"! (and still snowing lightly).

Today was a day that under promised and over delivered. It was also the first day for Alta's new Supreme lift.

Most gates were closed throughout the day, but Alta surprised us once again by opening Catherine's Area. It was deep, and untracked as folks were favoring early lines and not venturing further out. Closed gates today simply mean another huge round of freshies tomorrow for an early Christmas present.

I used the day to do a quick update for my Grand Adventure YouTube channel dedicated to RV-centric outdoor activities (https://YouTube.com/GrandAdventure or http://GrandAdventure.tv) to clear out a few housekeeping items:

First, are you allowed to fly the drone at Alta? Second, the amazingly stable given the wind. Mavic Pro is awesome.

I'm not an RVer, but I did watch a couple of your videos and found them informative and nicely done.

BYW, when I tried to preview my post using Chrome, I got an error:
"This page isn’t working
Chrome detected unusual code on this page and blocked it to protect your personal information (for example, passwords, phone numbers, and credit cards).

I tried again with the same results. I had no problems when using Firefox.

Speaking of housekeeping, notice all of the "onclick" garbage code where baldyskier quoted admin. :stir:

Probably my fault. I deleted the YouTube link to save space on my post. I'm guessing that created problems.

No it didn't. Whenever you edit a post that contains a link, that code gets inserted after every link. So on your last edit you need to erase that code.
