    Looks like the storm moving in will be pretty wet. 2plus inches of moisture. Could make for some great skiing Mon-wed, and a nice refresher to the pack for next weekend. Hopefully we set into a good freeze thaw cycle now that the snow pack is getting delayered by the recent warm percolation...

    Snowbird Expansion Plan-Your thoughts?

    Snowbird hasn't opened pipeline yet this year. Mary Ellen already gets demo'd by the Powder Birds. I wonder if they gates to WP will be near permanent closures like the Gad2 gate and pipeline hike?

    Thanks, Tony. Still can't run full out. Or jump very high -- although I probably couldn't before I got hurt. Another month and I hope to be back to normal. Have a 10 day trip lined out for the Wind Rivers next week, can't wait!

    Thought some of you might be interested in hearing about this place. Weekend-able from SLC, and a nice out of the way place. Nevada. America’s 34th state, and most arid. Chock full of desert. A mere 86% of Nevada’s land is owned by the Federal Government. Not only that, but it’s home to...
