Utah Backcountry B&B--Fresh Tracks Mountain House UPDATES

Posted 04-16-2016 at 04:39 PM by hikeswithdogs

OK sorry for the lack of updates been crazy busy with work, riding, house planning and training for three marathons(bla bla bla running)

I normally wait for someone to reply so it's not me bumping my own thread and self promoting which I'm pretty sure is against forum policy.

--After putting one of our dogs down and finally selling our house(nightmare) we made it out to Utah right around Jan 10th, renting some space from a generous friend of ours with a great house...

I actually did jinx it

Seriously. On Thursday, I popped my knee running across the street. Jeez. I had visions of this entire week off being wasted. Fortunately, I got myself a compression sleeve, which is helping a lot. Knee is still sore, but within the tolerable range.

Of course, I jinxed the snowfall as well. The anticipated snow has not been showing up. At least not before today. Right now it's "heavy snow" on Cypress. I'm giving my knee the extra day off, and let's face it, the mountain...

The forecast is showing nothing but snow, followed by snow, and more snow, for at least the next six days. Even better, I've booked next week off.

Omigod, omigod, omigod, omigod, omigod, omigod, omigod, omigod.

Of course, I've probably just jinxed it.

It was deserted again, so I had every chair to myself. And no waiting-- I rode right up through the lift-line every time, yanked my straps, and pushed right onto the lift. Got a lot of runs in, in an hour and a half. Why? Because just before 10:30, the snowfall turned to rain, and...

Got what I expected

Posted 02-21-2016 at 01:35 PM by Donutz (This Side Up)

The weather has not been thrilling the last couple of weeks. Lots of rain, not lots of snow. I almost went up to Cypress yesterday-- was up at 6am and everything-- but the website wasn't encouraging. There was some new snow, but there were also high winds, and Sky Chair was expected to be closed.

After thinking about it for a while, I decided to wait for today. Not sure that was the best idea I've ever had. Yesterday, there was at least some fresh. Today it was all scritch. On the...
