Solitude Saturday

Ripped groomers with my brother-in-law at Solitude for a total of 20,500 vertical feet on the day. The Prophets carved it up, especially on the steeper runs like Challenger and Diamond Lane. Speaking of which, I read here that Challenger is reportedly the steepest groomed run in Utah.



Where is everybody?



Check out the pretty turns on the mountain across Honeycomb Canyon. Nice!



I should probably dust off a bike and hit the road this week considering my trip to Arizona is only a short 2 weeks away. However, all I can think about is carving turns on the mountain and when the next storm will hit...

That sweet hill is call "1000 turns". Fitting name isn't it. I haven't skied that in long time. I'll put that on my to do list.

Looks like the meadow chutes in Silver Fork, but what do I know?

No snow until at least Friday and even then not much. Maybe the bike isn't such a bad idea.

Mark is right. I need to look at closer. Silver fork it is.
