Notice to out readers;

THE FUCK WEATHER IS COMING!! THERE WILL BE A PERIOD OF TIME, MAYBE A WEEK OR MAYBE A MONTH, WHERE THE NORDIC CENTER IS NOT YET OPEN AND THE TRAILS ARE FUCKED FOR SKINNY TIRES AND ROAD BIKING KIND OF SUCKS ANYWAY SO GET PREPARED FOR THE FUCKWEATHER AND BUY A FAT BIKE RIGHT NOW!

Our good friends at Diamondback happen to have them all on sale right now so click that link below and get the plastic ready. Maybe there will be Christmas yet here at the PPPC(depending on the generosity of our gentle readers…)

Whenever a storm front is bearing down on the Wasatch some pretty insane sunset/sunrises are a daily thing; IMG_0024

Mountain Dell Nordic; World Class Nordic Skiing less than 10 minutes up Parley’s Canyon from the Salt Lake valley! Not only is Mountain Dell close to the city it is also very inexpensive and a great option for people looking to get away from the apocalyptic traffic of the Cottonwood Canyons. A season pass for a typical season that averages 90 days a year is only $55 for TUNA Members and $80 otherwise and a day pass is only $7!

The first thing you will see as you head down to the track at Mountain Dell is a volunteer collecting the day pass fee. Below is Eric who happened to be doing his volunteer shift this past weekend. These volunteers pull a couple of weekend shifts a year and get a free pass for their efforts. So when you show up to ski just give up the $7 and don’t hassle the volunteers or offer excuses as to why you don’t have a measly $7!

Once on the track the highway fades away and you are completely surrounded by killer track and equally killer views!

As soon as the base is sufficient, classic and skate lanes are groomed daily.

Granduer Peak is always in the background no matter where you are on the track.

More killer views and more perfectly buffed skate lanes! This section below follows a small stream and it is not uncommon to see moose, elk, and mule deer by the water.

Early snow in the Wasatch is never a good thing and we definitely got it this season. That shit turns into Surface hoar and when a little weight drops on top; the curtain comes down. Take a look at a selection of recent avy photo’s shot by Mark White who spends winter as a observer for the Utah Avalance Forecast center;

12644907_768480229923648_6716315561268911423_nVery popular Holy Toledo shot which was set off by a local helicopter ski outfit. This one slid as the 15th skier in the group was on it!

12670087_771775036260834_589301449329373085_nNotice how this one covered up existing tracks? Just cause others have skied it doesn’t mean shit.

Wind drift cracks a propagating!

All of the above shots are of man eaters! Back Country skiing is something that must be approached with a lot of respect or you will end up dead.
