Local Advantages

One advantage to being a local here in Utah is that the resorts are 25 minutes from my house. If the weather or conditions are crappy, I can bail and come back another day.   Tourists, on the other hand, don’t have a choice.

Today was a prime example.

Upon arriving at Alta, the conditions were snowy, foggy, and flat.  The flat part is the worst.  Not being able to see the bumps and contours on runs can be dangerous.

Tomorrow is another day.  And tomorrow hopefully the sun will be shining because I’ll be back at Alta to give it another shot.
