I typically don't post much about ski outings because it typically involves going to a pretty common area, going up and skiing a few laps of nice snow, and having a nice time; pretty much the same as everyone else in the Wasatch and not necessarily worthy of a "no shit there I was and you should'a been there" post . But unusual situations call for unusual measures.
Colin and I knew that everyone would be looking for the few high/north lingering patches of snow, which are limited now. The Alta Wildcat parking lot was sporting plenty of cars, so we moved on to check out Gunsight, which was already tracked. However, looming beyond that lay the untouched Devil's Castle, which we rarely ski (inside the resort) that we knew had some lingering snow patches prior to the storm.
We summited the mighty Sugarloaf peak first:
|Such cool guys on top of....a big mound.|
|couldn't give'er too hard.....|
Skinned up the main shot:
and had some nice skiing.
|Colin blowin' smoke|
That's all, folks, til November, if we're lucky.....
|Geek Stoke. |
As it turns out, pretty significant sluffs came barreling out of that notch not long after we left!
