    Whisper Ridge Cat Skiing, UT 1/16/2016

    Looks fun, but im with crocker on this one. Low elevation. Not a ton of vert and for something over $500 for a day? Not likely something I'd ever do unless it was free. Good luck to them.

    We went out right at the secret spot. Took Kay, Arnie, Dwore and Nelson over there. Untracked all the way. Also out Patsy Down the gully. Fabulous.

    Ha I was first through that main street opening. Got literally all 4 of our little chute shots over at the corner untracked, one after the other. Mid station laps. I might head up for supreme laps in the morning though. Should be settled and smooth.

    agreed on travel issues. ABS more difficult than BCA Float system. Scuba shops and most firehouses can fill BCA canisters. Actually liked Western NA forum better as the audience that might see it might be wider and have many more as you see fit my friend. M

    PCMR Loses to Vail Resorts

    Much like has been said, and im far from any legal expert, seemed it would go this way.. cumming is going to have to eat his own words im sure. That base area will indeed but used by Vail that ski resort will not remain dormant just because Powdr has its panties in a bunch for being stupid. I...

    Snowbird Late Season Ops

    just solidifies my decision to not get a combo pass. Looks like with the upgrades that no matter what amount of snow falls between now and end of may that snowbird will finish day to day on or about memorial day. And if I recall Alta will be open for Fri-Sun operations for the next 2 weekends...

    Alta, UT 3/18/2014

    I dont know what the percentage is, but i literally skied 13 runs yesterday and the ONLY one that was not untracked was Eagles Nest and that was still what id consider "cut up pow". Otherwise 12 blissful deep untracked runs at Alta on a 12" day of 6% in march? Some would say unheard of....i'd...

    ZION CURTAIN REMAINS..... Still makes so little sens to me the justification for the Zion curtain. So the theory is if the "kids" can't see the booze they won't drink any? Riiiiiiggggghhhhhttttt....If they wanna drink it they will drink it...should be more about family values than putting on...

    Alta/Snowbird 3/12/14, Little Chute!

    BobbyD and I were just talking about how over the last 2 or so seasons Snowbird has not been opening the gate to go all the way up Baldy until Alta was closed. Good to see it open, much more mellow hike from that side of baldy. I do not have the luxury of going that way anymore as I do not hold...
