If you only knew……

If you Only knew…. But I’m glad you don’t….. So goes a little sticker I have from years ago from Solitude. In all sincerity April 9th it was like a virtual dream occurring days before the resort will run its last chair, the patrol conducts it’s last sweep, and the skiers ski their last lap […]

The Best of Both Worlds

There is nothing short of frustrating listening to your buddy’s voice mail as he raves about the 4th lap on Honeycomb on the Saturday after the dump.

Paradise on a weekday

There is a first time for everything. I’m not sure if I was looking to seek some humility on the slopes but I was pretty sure my first day on some telemarking gear would give me some. I mean, c’mon. $250 bucks on KSL for boots, skiis, bindings, and even some skins!? Too good to […]
