Alta has 4" of snow now. I'm grabbing my skis and heading up this afternoon to try to get some desperation rock skiing in. The season is starting!

Best October in Utah history? - 11/01/04 03:36 AM

I was in the Big Cottonwood backcountry all weekend(not telling where) and had nothing but face shots in deep untracked powder. Oh my god is it epic in the Wasatch right now. 8-10 feet of snow in the high elevations and it is still coming down hard, and 6-8" in my yard in salt lake city. brighton is open already, snowbird is opening next weekend, and the others can't be far behind.

You can keep y'r damn snow! Tried to hike up Mount Moosilauke (sp?) in NH with my gf last weekend. Was ~ 2 feet of snow up there - sucks! I am so not ready for fall to end.

we've got warmer drier weather now. wishing we had fresh snow, but the resorts still have 60"+ bases so anything groomed is pretty good. actually kinda works out well - went rock climbing in BCC in a tshirt on saturday, and then skiied in BCC at brighton on sunday.

Tahoe is going off!!

I was up at Carson Pass, all weekend (Round Top, Saturday and Red Lake Peak, Sunday). There's at least a 4' base, evenin wind swept areas, and the snow is similar to early spring conditions.

Poached the Chutes at Mt. Rose last week, and I'm heading for Waterhouse Peak for a little dawn-patrol, tomorrow.
