A minute from the Alta exit off the I-15!

Last night I checked the forecast and it was a slight chance of snow. Today I woke up and saw clouds and I thought hey that's a good sign I'll take just a dusting at this point. Very depressing driving up the canyon seeing blue sky, realizing the "clouds" were just thick thick smog.

Are you going to chase that or stay in Utah?
Nah, I'm going to work on getting a new pair of ski boots this week. Might try the guys at Sports Den. You have other suggestions? My gnarly, buniony, geezer feet are giving me some pain in my 9 year old Lange boots. I will probably buy something off the shelf for some minor tweaking. I'm looking for 70% comfort, 30% performance.

I had great luck with the boot fitter at Level 9 on 3300 South last summer. She was awesome. I did not have any unusual foot issues but I opted to go ahead with the custom foot bed and man oh man these boots have been the best by far. Absolutely no discomfort during the break-in period.

Our director uses Level 9 for ski tunes. A lot of instructors here go to Park City for boots...I'll ask around tomorrow as I'm also in the market.

@jimk wherever you go let me know how inventory is. Everything is super tight around here. I'm trying to eek season 5 out of my current boots. By then they'll have about 220-230 days on them.

Currently VT should be doing short term advertising to the South West. Come to VT we have you covered. Not so deep bases but being refreshed as the winter storms grow seemingly better. I read the article and a .10" tenth of a inch of atmosphere water is ugly over 10 days. How are they for making & blowing snow with cold temps this late in the year there? and I would think that off trail on mountains with trees and glades with no refresh are as rough as there are here in VT??

What are their base depths? Just heard from someone who went to Big Sky recently and apparently it is pretty low there (and icy).

Bridger bowl shows 111 inches...about as much as Stowe has gotten.
