I recently went to the San Mateo Maker Faire, which was a great weekend if you’re into techy/DIY/WTF-type stuff, and I’m stoked to help make one happen in SLC this fall. If you’d like to contribute, or help organize the event, or are just curious, please feel free to swing by, or PM me.836 East Harrison Ave at 7 PM, Tuesday June 5th. Free food (fish tacos) and drinks (beer).More info here: http://www.facebook.com/SLCMakerFaire June 10, 2012 at 8:58 pm #644408 KR 159 PostsHey everyone, have a great summer! I’m about to head into the Absarokas (NW Wyoming) for 30 days, and just wanted to officially check out from this season. It was great touring with new people, and meeting new people as well. Looking forward to next season!Peace! :thatrocks: June 11, 2012 at 2:38 am #644409 wasatch surf 979 Postshave fun Kelly! those are some of my favorite mountains in the world. June 14, 2012 at 3:00 am #644410 buckchow 356 PostsSorry, no splitboard content. We are running out of snow over here. Here some shots from today on South Ridge of Superior w/ wasatchsurf. Suicide Chute: Scrambling above the Suicide(left)/Homicide(right) saddle; Snowbird (and the Powderbird heliport) in background: There’s a bit of exposure. Observing the 3 points of contact rule: It’s a great scramble. Did see some fresh tracks in Cardiac bowl, there’s still snow there. You could prolly ride 1000′ of vert there if ya felt like lugging the plank up. I guess I don’t… anywho, Thanks Dan for the day!

July 2, 2012 at 2:09 pm #644413 Snowvols 291 PostsHey guys I went on a nice bike ride yesterday up Emigration canyon then north on 65. Does anyone know if 65 is open in the winter time? There looked like some super fun lines could be had there with very easy access from the road. Also thinking of hitting Timp Sunday if anyone wants to join. I gotta get my July turns in…… July 2, 2012 at 4:05 pm #644414 Snurfer 1448 Posts @Snowvols wrote:Hey guys I went on a nice bike ride yesterday up Emigration canyon then north on 65.

Also thinking of hitting Timp Sunday if anyone wants to join. I gotta get my July turns in…… East Canyon road (65) is closed in the winter. You can access that area from Kilyon and City Creek Canyon’s in the winter, but it can be a slog. Some folks use a bike to approach from City Creek and hit Grandview Peak. Also anything beyond Big Mountain west of highway 65 is private land 🙁Shark Snowsurf Chuna Voile V-Tail 170 BC Voile One Ninety Five Spark R&D Arc July 3, 2012 at 10:13 pm #644415 christoph benells 717 Postsdan always sports perfect climbing form. hey dude! back to oregon now.

July 4, 2012 at 9:55 pm #644417 wasatch surf 979 PostsChris- that was such a fun day. I wish I was there again instead of burning up in this damned heat we’ve had all summer. Get a hold of me if you come out next winter July 9, 2012 at 12:26 am #644418 Snowvols 291 PostsWell ran up to Timp today. It was a pretty nice. Coverage is a joke compared to last September. It was fun being out on snow and here is how the perm snow field looks. July 11, 2012 at 9:47 pm #644419 mej 81 PostsGot some July turns last week up in the PNW. Summitted and skied Mount Adams and Mount Hood. Took an alternate route on Adams to avoid the crowds, which weren’t too bad since we summitted on a Thursday. Cold weather on Adams had us change our descent plans to instead ski the SW Chutes, which lived up to their reputation as one of the longest, most consistent fall line corn runs in the US. Hood was a zoo, but fun. Lots of people incredulous that we were carrying skis and boards to ride off the summit. I don’t think I would ever do a volcano without my split. I can’t imagine walking down one of those things.Photos by Ritchie Espenilla.On Adams, looking at next year:SW Chutes in background, very foreshortened:Hood gang shred: July 17, 2012 at 4:13 pm #644420 mar123 370 Postsnice, looked like a fun trip!! July 17, 2012 at 5:53 pm #644421 Snowvols 291 PostsHopefully everyone is having a good summer. I am trying to plan my winter and a buddy and I were talking of doing a Yurt trip. Does anyone recommend a certain yurt based on really good terrain? I know Utah has quite a few, but we are just looking for one of the better yurts to stay at.
