I wanted a few more days on the lake before laying up the SNOB -- but Mother Nature has other plans...

Just a few miles from the Quest mothership...

Looks like a good start to the alpine ski year. I’m heading out in January for a couple months. 3 pairs of skis and a Subaru Outback loaded.

Shocked    I used to be very well compensated to be out in that stuff and being younger helped. Now that I'm on my own time and older- there is no way

Gary,  Rob's picture looks a little too much like a Coors commercial to represent what you were out in.  I am guessing this comes a little closer?

I buttoned mine up last week, got it ready for winter.  I hate doing that it kills the summer fun for sure.  Currently enjoying 84* on beach in Hawaii.   Extending our summer for a few more days.

I have plans to go skiing thursday afternoon.  79* forecast, water is still mid to upper 70s.  That being said, season is winding down, cooler weather is coming, boat and slalom course probably pulled in the next few weeks.  Photo from last Friday evening's outing.

Don't really remember days like that Larry I guess because it was not every day.  What sticks in the mind is leaving the house getting in the cold car, getting to work putting on cold carhartts and boots,getting in the cold van and beginning your day. Then getting in your cold car to head home to start the whole process again the next day. Made you really appreciate those rare perfect spring and fall days. Your picture shows one of those days for sure.

I’ll be slalom skiing tomorrow afternoon. Water should be about 78 or so, air 75. The reason I carry 3 pairs of skis when I go out west is to have the proper skis for each circumstance. Front side groomers, all mountain, cruising the glades. They each have a purpose and it makes me happy. Looking forward to a fun winter.

By the way Solitude and Brighton in Utah are fantastic if you’re a powder fan. Lots of knee deep runs.

Not sure.  Based on the tree line in the background, I am going to guess 2.  I think I had a one or two 6's that evening (last friday) but  had several more 2s, 3s and 4s.

I have worked Ski Patrol at Sierra At Tahoe for 20 years and love snow skiing.  I have 3 pairs of skis also but the last purchase was Nordica Enforcers, I find these fit every condition just fine.  Outstanding in fresh powder and in the crud.   Working patrol work we don’t get to choose where we ski, often we have to go where the injury happens or there is work to be done.   The Enforcer is fantastic.   
Unfortunately Sierra was hit hard by the August Forest fires.   Not sure how much of the mountain is left.   It formerly had the very best tree skiing in California.   Thousands of our trees burned.😣

I love that area.  We've been going there since the late '80's.  I've mostly skied Alta, but occasionally SB and Brighton.  If you spend 2 months up in that canyon, you are fortunate!

Larry and Gary, sounds like you think the cold is bad.  I wouldn't give up 4 seasons for anything. By Labor Day, I am done with hot days and summer.  While I love fall, I am looking forward to winter.

Today the air was 78, water 80, humidity 35%, wind 4 mph. Skiing was incredible, especially at 75 years old. Life is awesome!

At 75, what lift/area do you ski most at Alta?  My favorite area has always been the Wildcat lift, but at 64 I can't ski it like I used to and at times I get my butt kicked and have to head for the groomers, which kills me.

Sugarloaf and Supreme, although you really can’t go wrong anywhere at Alta. I’ve got a good friend that skis Alta every day it’s open. So usually iI’ll ski with him and his buddies.. we cover a lot of terrain.
I do walk hills 3 miles/day and hit the gym 3 days a week to stay in shape for the mountain. Also ski 3 days/week 2 sets of 8 passes in the slalom course April-October. Retirement is great.

Supreme until it’s tracked out then Sugarloaf to Devils castle, then over to wildcat for two to three runs through the keyhole, ski into the bird shuttle bus back to Alta. 
Once Altas all tracked out, cross the street hike Mount Supreme for some hard earned tracks.
That was my favorite routine.

 I had friends that worked winters there and I stayed in the employees lodge with them, once or twice I worked as a guest employee and skied for free.

Oh and we did all that with just 1 pair of skis. Armpit deep powder, bumps, trees, N.East ice moguls all on a pair of 203cm Voelkl slalom ski. Smile
Now a days with these fancy tech skis I guess you need 3. Angry

I just picked up my new M6 Mantras and I will make them do it all.Wink Because I can’t afford 3 pair LOL

I like having choices. Really have to be smart about it, buy skis at the end of the season, new but last years model. I didn’t buy them all at once. Up until last year I worked 2 days a week at resorts in Ut and CO for 8 years. Easy to get deals when you’re a resort employee with an on the snow job.

I’ve got a pair of 200cm Vokyl GS skis in the attic that I haven’t seen in 12 years. I do ski Rossignol  S3’s most days but the RTM 84’s are my front side skis. Have a pair of Atomic Access 100mm underfoot for the super powder days. When I go out west for 3 months I like to be prepared for anything.

Paul, I think you've been flying too many High Altitude missions here lately as it's affected your brain. Yes the south has all of that but we don't have mosquitos that will siphon a quart of blood per sitting. Screw Winter..... $100 a day for lift tickets, $100 a day lodging, $600 for airline tix. $75 a day car rental. $75.00 a day for food. $50 for drinks. I can fuel by boat up for an entire ski season for ONE trip to Freeze your @$$ off sliding down the side of a frozen mountain. I'll take slalom skiing everyday with my buds, a boat babe in a bikini to go along with it, floating in 85' water all day off the dock and drinking beer all day never and never have to peel through 3 layers of clothes just to relieve myself. SCREW WINTER!!!! Come on Spring!!!!

I think you definitely need choices out there. I've gone skiless some trips and rented demos so I could have the best skis for the conditions.  When you're only there for a week, you have to take whatever conditions you have.  Seems like over the past 10 years or so I've encountered crud at times and spring conditions during the beginning of March, which never used to happen.  

Either of you guys ever ski the Baldy Chutes?
