Looks like touring is winding down. What a shift between this weekend and last. Well today went up to ride the Timpanogos West Face. I have been eying the line since I moved here a few years ago. It didn't disappoint. Missed ya Dan!

Started Early.
Image

Booted up the entire 6,500 vert feet. First time using crampons. They are nice haha
Image

Corn Harvest. Corn was perfect the entire way down.
Image

Image

I was so stoked to hit this line. I am beat today. Long approach but totally worth it.

Nice, Logan. That is definitely the best line (of the many) on the west face of Timp. The snowpack is looking bleak up there though, wow. That line had more snow in late May two years ago!

damn Logan I have purposely avoided looking at this page so I didn't see your report. Working doubles has been killing me, super bummed I couldn't motivate myself to get up after 1.5hours of sleep. :nononno: great job!

nice work on the La Sals switchback!

I too was in the La Sals last week. Spent 3/31 - 4/3 at the Tomasaki Hut. Definitely the shittiest hut I've ever stayed in. We lucked out with one great powder day and even rode settled pow and Slick Rock in one day. As usual, I took very few pictures :mrgreen:

Obs: ~150 cm of snow near Geyser Pass on Wed. Snowline was still well below Geyser Pass parking, too.

Oh yeah, this thread, as well as the last few years worth, has been full of much win. Not sure why I never post anymore but I've been digging all the quality stoke :thumbsup:

Hit up Days from Spruces this evening...Snow was Super Duper!

got a lap on each of these...snow was really good, bottomless turns the whole way.
Image

crazy UFO cloud...bunch of high marking from sleds...looks like a couple naturals in Cardiff from daytime heating or wind loading?
Image

good to have winter back
Image

some nice looking lines back there
Image

North-Northeast were really good, anything else was zippered to heavily crusted...exited apx @ 6:30
Image

gotta show some sigs
Image

snow felt like it was bonded well in days, didn't notice/see/feel any slabs popping at all...winds were gusting out of the north/north east up at the ridges...thought maybe it would be icy towards the ridge but the snow was holding on, at least were I was the winds were not doing very much damage if any.

Did a few laps from cardiff pass. The snow on the north side was great! It road bottomless and was really light.

Image

The south side seemed windloaded everywhere and got denser as you got lower.

Image

Over all the snow was great. Visability kinda sucked though earlier in the day.

Wow Dan those are some lunker rainbows! Was all of that in Utah?

Went out this morning. Snow was still fluffy down to below 7k in BCC if it hadn't seen any sun yesterday. About 6 inches at 7k, a foot at 10k. It was really good above 9k. I was worried more about keeping it out of my face than staying off the buried crust up high.
