Went for my first tour today. DIdn't hit any rocks.
E/SE aspect soft snow but getting a little heavy, south facing is sun damaged.
Alta is a cluster fuck circus.
Snowbird is a close second.
Flagstaff is pretty tracked out as well.
If you can get out tomorrow I would try to make sure the aspect is E or N facing, or a packed run at alta.
Snow depth is pretty good for now.
Pics on blog.

Oct 30.

Alta

North and east facing aspects ridden. Snow was still dense/creamy powder in protected areas. Other aspects were melted out, crusty, or windblown. Snow in North/NW? facing chute was still a few feet deep and holding well. Some collapsing was noted in one area, but that was mainly due to thin snowpack over shrubs and rocks. Weather turned cold in the afternoon and clouds were forming, hopefully it ended up snowing and not raining.

Awesome critter pic Bucky!

I got up into BCC today (10/31) for some no-boarding...

There was a bit of rain at the road elevation and minimal snow, but after hiking for an hour I found some killer lines. Its been about 25 years since I seriously rode my old Burton woody, but I did okay. My camera battery died, but assuming the video and pics turned out I'll post em up later....

By 3pm a serious melt was underway :nononno:

GREAT turns today off Rocky Point and So Long, upper Albion Basin. Supportable, with a nice layer of softer snow on top, but it was ruined by periodic sun breaks throughout the day. Wife and I were skinning at 8:00, which was the key to getting the goods before the temperature and/or the SLC crowd.

Not bad for Halloween!

Still surprisingly good riding conditions today in shady uppermost BCC. Fast smooth powder with supportable, adequate base.
Fun enough that I took 4 runs. I hit no rocks but watch out for sharks in the shallow water. Mashed potatoes on the way out.

A foot plus of fresh medium density powder at 10000' to 11000' LCC. It is bonding fairly well to old surface. Pits revealed slight weakness (Q2/Q3) between new and old snow. Manageable sluffing in 40 degree northfacing chute. Minor wind transport seen up high. No slabbing witnessed, but will rise with more snow and/or wind. Old turns are completely covered, turning conditions are great all the way to the parking lot.

Great stable dense powder. Still rather shallow and bony of course.
