I took a little lesson in the new Gateway Heights slang from Rich the other day. Just giving it a shot.
So this is my first blogger deal on the new site...nice work Tad, by the way. I guess a little catching up is in order:
It's been an amazing year so far up here in Park City. From riding many of the hundreds of mountain bike trails in the area, to the few backcountry ski seshes I've put together so far, I've definitely fallen in love with this town. Granted, fur boots are rampant, and it takes 45 minutes to get to any real skiing, but these are small sacrifices one has to make to be part of the scene in the PC. I have a quasi-real job now that is 40 hours a week, but not always 9 to 5. This leaves a little time for skiing, but it will most likely cut my days in half this year. Be prepared for a midseason freak-out around the end of February...
So far I have a season pass to The Canyons, and a pass to Park City will be in my hands tomorrow for the price of $1 (thanks to my girlfriend Casey...PCMR thinks we're married). I will also be spending a large number of days this season touring in the backcountry. I have all my BC gear dialed, and I'm going down to Silverton, CO in a couple weeks to take my Avy I class. I've always wanted to shred there, and this will be a good chance to learn some knowledge that could save my life.
Well, it dumped about 20 inches last night up here, with another big one currently piling up as I type this. I won't be able to get on it until Saturday because of this job, but so be it. Actually that sucks quite a bit now that I think about it.
I would also like to take this opportunity to put out an open invite to anyone who feels like coming out to SLC/PC. I have a decent sized house now with a couple extra rooms for people to crash in that's within walking distance of the lifts at The Canyons.
I will leave you with a couple pics from early season shredding at Alta:
Perfect North Slopes Update!
