Switchback - that's a great line. Its definitely on my list.
Tried for a Superior summit today but the lack of refreeze overnight and the warm temperatures kept me from it. The snow got way too sloppy so we had to call it a day. We witnessed a natural of cardiac ridge.

Had a fantastic run (the kind with with shorts and shoes) up to the north aprons of Gobblers yesterday. If you don't mind getting up really early and lugging your stuff up to at least 8500' it might be a fun place to do laps while its in the morning shade. Aside from that it was truly epic running straight up and down Pole Canyon on consolidated snow...
Wished I'd had a snow skate for the down, would have been most excellent!
Went with Bucky Saturday and then met up with some friends in the Stansbury Mountains for some more shreding. I tried to keep a slow pace Saturday as I knew it would be a long day so thanks for putting up with me!
Here is looking down 'packraft chute' Those turns were money I must say.
I got to the trailhead in the Stansbury Mountains at 8PM so I was treated to a nice sunset while I went to meet up with the homies camping.
Bucky: The chute from the summit is totally doable on a good year with a rap at the bottom.
The twins have gotten hammered this year? I have ridden them for three years now and have never seen tracks on them until this year. I guess more people are actually getting outside of the snatch now?
