Doug- Rad Antelope Island shots. I need to get out there. Is the south end of the island open?

Mej- awesome shot

Swithback- that photo is pretty sweet, love the color of the sky

i've been hitting the river more than the skin track lately and haven't been super inspired to get out unless it's for a specific objective. Hoping from some big april and may storms to keep us touring into early summer. for anyone that cares the river has been fishing great and some good hatches of blue winged olives have started.

Looks like I might haved picked the wrong roadside slide path for my quick run this morning. Those lines are so neat and orderly. 9 tracks nearly took up the whole thing for me!
Image

Snow rode bottomless, almost to the bottom.

Land of enchantment...

Wasatch Surf, what river are you talking about? Ive been in the habit of only fishing storm days( because hanging out in wind and rain is better than wind and snow??) this winter so as a far as I concerned, bugs don't exist on the provo to me.

started skiing up scotties around 5:30pm today, love spring dusk patrols. some tracks but nothing from the top. Jason and I rode it from the top after fiddling with a binding issue for a while. after about a 20 minute set back we dropped into the main chute from the top. clouds, snow, and some wind were fast approaching as well as the dark. Aired the little drop and scored some heavy but fun spring pow down to the trail. lines across the street look about as fat as they are gonna get this year.

Started at about 2:30 and almost turned around because the sun was starting to bake everything, but glad I didn't ! The weather turned really incredible between 3-6pm, clouds rolled in, temps dropped and the snow was nuking! probably around 2-3" fell while I was out this afternoon.

Got a couple of laps in some steep trees, snow was blower!
Image
A little further down for some open faceshots! Temps, clouds, and snow saved the afternoon! Shade from the trees helped a bit too.
Image

deep turns today :headbang:

Cardiff, West facing, between 9600-7700, good stability, about a foot of new. Turns were good down to 7700 at 6pm due to the cooling temps, clouds, and the new snow that fell, saved it from a manky exit. Im guessing NW-NE and a few E/W aspects will still be good tomorrow :scratch: :scratch: :twocents:

Mar, Hit that last line this past Saturday and the choke and the bottom was full of wet debris. Looks like it filled in nicely and rode better than it did for me. Nice work!

No way my legs would have been up for four laps of that goodness after wallowing for 3 hours in 20 inches of unsupportable snow.. Nice work mar sorry I couldn't join you.

The internet tells me that georges bowl was the worse place to be yesterday. Oh well.

I got redemption today. Probably the best turns of the year for me.
Image

We broke trail for about 3500 ft in slightly more user friendly snow before some friendly skiers caught up and finished the job 300 ft from the top.
Image

They were nice enough to give us first tracks.
Image

The clouds looked like UFO's (or powder birds) coming to invade BCC

sigs..

nice switchback! ha, you looked pretty bummed the other day :D glad you got some redemption, those turns look fantastic!

Speaking of fantastic, again what a day today. I thought the storm snow was done for and was hoping at best to ride some pseudo corn in tracked out snow. Was getting a bit excited as we had to break trail in White Pine today.

no tracks? :clap:
Image

breaking in blower? :clap:
Image

first tracks and damn good...hero pow pow :drool:
Image

Snow was still fantastic dry pow down to 9K and some sheltered areas from the sun below that. Crusts softened up on our exit by 1:45. Didn't ever feel like the temps got out of control today, and a nice south west breeze to keep things cool. Get some!!
