    Hell yeah Doug you look stoic in that photo! So many good photos in here. Makes me want to take my camera and frequency splitboard more often. So good getting out with you Dan and Dave.

    Lots of interesting thoughts in this thread. I check this site daily still, hoping for new posts. It is unfortunate traffic has slowed down in the last year or two on the Utah thread. I still look through previous years threads before the season starts just to get excited for it again. Always fun looking at what people hit previous years.…[Read more]

    I’ve taken a bit of a hiatus from all things central Wasatch this year. I spent a week and a half in Canada. Did a week at Fairy Meadows. That place is ridiculous. I highly recommend going if you can.

    This weekend I went a rode a line I have eyed since mej did it several years ago. Went and skied the NE couloir on Lone and it was by far the…[Read more]

    Rad video, Dan! Looks like you guys scored this weekend. I did enjoy driving back from work on Sunday and able to look at your tracks on Big Horn.

    Doug, it looks like you got some creamy turns in.

    Hate I missed the best weekend of touring due to work.

    Doug – Well said.

    I know after my accident it really changed how I view terrain and risks. I also refuse to MMQB any situation now as I wasn’t there. I view things vastly different now and have more compassion when someone looses their life in a slide. It isn’t worth it I learned. Hopefully we are all able to learn lessons from this.…[Read more]

    White Pine- Yeah I normally lug the DSLR on almost all tours. It just adds a little weight. I shoot with a 50mm prime which cuts back on weight a bit. Plus I am too cheap to buy a 24-70.

    Vibes to Doug Green. Pretty good read on the guy here. http://www.firsttracksonline.com/2016/01/21/skier-meets-untimely-end-in-utah-avalanche/

    Doug wish you could come! Let’s get out sometime soon. Long walk with a high probability of mediocre turns are a favorite of mine. I have a few drainages I would like to check out if you are wanting a long walk.

    Mar I always enjoy seeing the elusive Utah pillows.

    Like everyone it seems I don’t post as often. I still try to get after it…[Read more]

    I have asked tons of people but I had 1 person possibly two people drop out of a hut trip in BC. We are driving up to the Fairy Meadows hut hence me putting it in this forum right now. The hut dates are Feb 13-19. Anyone interested? If so, PM me. I can give you all of the details then.

    On Thanksgiving I wanted to venture over to something I knew was grassy so I went to Meadow Chutes. I saw on the UAC that someone had already been up there so I decided to go. We put the skinner in at the normal area.

    It is a bit thin.

    The top section was super good. I switched to hard boots this year and I was really doubting myself…[Read more]

    I am selling my spark bindings as I am switching to hard boots. I have replaced one of the baseplates. One is black and the replaced one is brown. There was a quality issue spark had and the pin fell out. I am including all hardware. Will post photos once I get home. Based in Salt Lake can meetup if local.

  • Snowvols replied to the topic UTAH 2014/2015 Conditions in the forum Utah 6 years, 6 months ago

    Hmm. Can you pencil me in? Sounds hard but really fun. I would really definetly be up for a shorter run this spring/summer though as I will have a lot of runs to get in before the race.

  • Snowvols replied to the topic UTAH 2014/2015 Conditions in the forum Utah 6 years, 6 months ago

    Doug,
    I am holding off running for 1 more month to see where I stand. I try to bike a few times a week, climb and play a little tennis and the hip feels pretty good. I figured come May I will make the call if I want to still try and do speedgoat. I guess this injury will prevent me from really giving it all I have and instead trying to cross…[Read more]

    Hey guys. I have been out of commission for the last month or so with a dislocated hip. I’ve enjoyed looking at people’s stoke that they have posted though.

    Would anyone have any interested to go and find some corn this weekend? I am not looking for anything too spicy just something fun.
