Report from Friday, 10/26/18

On Thursday, I hiked up and skied Main Chute off 11,000′ Mt. Baldy at Alta, UT in the fog.

I didn’t see much and got lost for a bit.

On Friday, I hiked up and skied Main Chute and saw it all.

The place is gorgeous.

Snowbird especially looked very filled in up high from the top of Mt. Baldy.

The skiing was damn fun.

There was still a little bit of fresh snow to be skied and the only set of tracks in the upper half of the chute were mine from the previous day.

The chute skied well.

I’m looking forward to getting back up there once or twice more before I head to Antarctica to ski guide on Tuesday.
