    Second gorgeous day in a row at Snowbird. @SpikeDog and friends were there and I got to ski with them all day.
    SpikeDog's buddies, nice bunch.

    Best snow was on Great Scott, but the entrance over by scraggly tree to right was kind of rocky/sketchy.

    You are making me sad that we did not stay two weeks in a row as opposed to just 1. We flew home Monday night after 5 amazing days at Alta and Snowbird in deep POW

    Jim puts on quite the beach party! Fantastic day of skiing with the gang, and the pictures are awesome. That entrance to Great Scott was super sketchy, but Jim made it look easy. Had to bring my A game late in the afternoon when it was just Jim and I. Seeing you hook up with @BobMc for some apres is not surprising. I was walking by him on my way to my truck and he recognized me and flagged me down. It had been several years since we skied together, but he picked me out from the back like it was just yesterday. Makes me worry, like, am I that easy to pick out of a police lineup?

    Sunday at Alta with Wildman Jack was pretty good too. A little icy down low, but some great snow on Ballroom and Chartreuse. We worked the singles line all day 'cause it was packed. Not sure if Spring Break or the 30" dump midweek was the cause, but parking was at a premium.
