To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the WMC Liability Waiver, online registration is required for all in person WMC events.
The snow gods have heard our prayers and delivered about 6 inches of fluffy powder. Could have been more, hopefully the forecast storms will deliver more by tomorrow at 1. Backcountry Skiing in Pinebrook, Jeremy Ranch, Summit Park and Lamb's Canyon. I used to live in Sandy and loved going up Little Cottonwood Canyon, but if you live in Summit County the temptation of nearby skiing is great. We will do 1/2 day excursions initially in the hiking/mountain bike trails NE of Park City. I have marked the pace as slow to match my early season out of shapeness, but more ambitious skiers are invited to do loops or enhance the path. I was out last weekend and looks like the trails are fine, but the bowls need a bit more snow. As usual avy gear and training mandatory (probe, shovel, beacon.).
