Bumpers in Utah

Recommended Posts

Headwall and Evergreen were my favs at Solitude.  I also remember Parachute being really gnarly.

Mid Gad is my fav place to stop mid day on a bluebird day.  the view is just awesome.  The view doesnt suck from the new place at the top of the tram either.  

@Ski2Live Live2Ski See what pictures can do to a trip report?

No kidding. I’ve been on some very scary drives on those roads in snow.

They’re gone in slide areas, we all commented today.  Guess they don’t want to bother to keep replacing them.

Wednesday - Deer Valley

Yet another bluebird day on tap.  Wow it’s been dry out here lately, and so we’re off to groomer Nirvana!

Departed the house a bit before 7am and arrived at Deer Valley somewhere near 7:40 and pulled into public parking lot 4.  A talk w/ the attendant, we found that lot 1 is open and free, so we pulled into baller parking in the front row!

The kid & I parking lot booted while the others went inside to make use of the facilities.  Hope they don’t kick me out because of my rip-seen jacket and hand-sewn gloves.  With all the women dressed to the Ts, I feel the need to lay low.

Up the Silver Lake Express and its already starting to feel warm.  Up the Sterling Express and we get the views of the groomers.  Well, they do look good, but don’t look as good as the pictures.  WTF?

Off the lift, we head down Birdseye and quickly overtake the few people on the chairs ahead of us and put the pedal down. Now this is some spectacularly groomed snow that is totally grippy and fast, wow!  We repeated the fun down Nabob.

Next up was another high-speed cruiser Wizard that had some nice drops like Falls, but had dark sections forcing speed checks.

Up the Wasatch Express we heard the Jerry quote of the day.  A women had fallen and lost both skis and slid a few hundred feet down Wizard.  One person stopped to pick up the lower ski, while another picked up the upper ski and then proceeded to ask the lower person if “he should bring it down”?

We ran into the other Blue crew and skied the Triangle trees with them.  We headed to the Silver Lake lodge for lunch, where I had the best white chocolate chip cookie ever, mainly because it was from Deer Valley.

After lunch we headed to Empire peak to check out the bowls and chutes. To get to the chutes you had to take a wi Jed whoop-de-dood traverse through the woods that was littered with skiers who had fallen.  Pretty ugly, kinda like the entrance to the Hobacks at times.

The rest of the afternoon was spent noodling around the woods in Lady Morgan area, looking for untouched stashes.
