Do it up man! Get to know folks in your area that are experienced in the backcountry. Most are plenty willing to help out the newbies as long as you're clear that you're serious about learning the ropes. If I'm out with people I don't really know or I'm out on my own, I'm a 20 degree meadow skipper. You can definitely ride backcountry while completely avoiding avalanche terrain if you know how to read the terrain and the conditions.

linvillegorge Already changed mine out, but always a great reminder!

killclimbz Ah the early season full gear skier/riders. Yeah that does crack me up. I've seen a ton of opening days where people were wearing puffies. The conditions were spring style. Dudes had to have been sweating their nuts off.

Reminds me of this chick I saw at Loveland today. She was wearing a HEAVY winter jacket, pants, gloves, and also had a 30(ish) litter backcountry pack.

I just kept thinking "why?" . . . "It's 40 degrees out and there is only 1 run open" Can't imagine what she wears during the normal season

PSA: Change Your Beacon Batteries

It is finally starting to snow in Utah. I am planning on getting out this week at some point, but figured I would remind everyone else to change your batteries. Here is to a snow filled winter!
