Day 24 Wed Feb 14. Alta 4000m vertical (61,900 total)

What a wonderful way to finish up.Could have had a ‘free’ day at Snowbasin, Snowbird or Park City, but found myself instead heading back to Alta for a 4th day at 50% off.  I think Denis Denuto said it best … Continue reading

Day 17 Wed 7 Feb. Kalispell – Blacktail – Missoula. 2300m vertical (43,700 total)

And it’s goodbye to the sun – it was a novelty while it lasted.  Once again a dusting on the car overnight but overcast and dry when I finally started throwing everything in the car.  Wasn’t quite sure what to … Continue reading
