Oh that four years ago was a great one! I think I was riding powder deeper than (these last pics) that by the middle of October. You'll get plenty of yours and most likely larger amounts being that you are in Utah and all. We just have a long ass season out here due to the high altitude. On the negative side, storms lose a lot of their punch by the time they get here. So we get drips and drabs which add up, but you can count the 12" plus dumps on one hand in general.

Jordan, to answer your question, there was around two feet of snow back there. Besides for managing to nail one rock, I didn't hit a thing, and none of my partners had any problems hitting stuff under the snow. It was pretty dang good for October. We are experiencing a warm up this week though, so that spot is probably going to settle a lot and need a refresh before we go back there again.

It's around three hours to get there I believe. Maybe two and a half. Just far enough that I generally don't go there unless I have a place to stay. Though I have done a day trip or two to Steamboat. Kind of funny that I'll do several day trip to Monarch Pass (also three hours) but hardly ever to Steamboat.

I really want to ride with you this season, but I will be in steamboat dec 14-18, and have no way to drive around... I have to supervise 96 college kids and were taking coach busses out there

however if you want to join us and party with college kids we have 11 slopeside townhouses and Im sure we could accomodate you. And Id love to earn my turns for a day with you on my Abacus

Let's see what the snow does. I could probably be convinced to make the trek out to Steamboat for a day at least. Buffalo Pass has some pretty nice back country riding and unlike most spots, it's pretty damn safe. Avalanches are not much of a threat back there. December is still a little early. Conditions could be could back there, or it could be pretty limited. Buff pass does get about double the snow of the resort so it should be easy to tell if it's ready to go or not.

Cody was on my ass all day. No one else was shooting photos, therefore no pics of the dude running after me. Plenty more season ahead, I'm sure photos with Cody will start appearing with more frequency.
