A piss poor winter at best has led to mostly hybrid courts this season. There was only full “Snoquet” covereage for about 8 minugtes since Ullr switched his ass up to road biking rather than skiing pow or nordee glydn.

Oh well……

Winter is short; Play Snoquet!

After a seeming eternity of bikini ski days, it finally snowed here in the #usedtosnowsatchmtns!

But Alas, gentle reader, the storm kind of sucked a big bag of dicks and that is according to an expert not some snowbro; King Weenie says the storm sucked bro

OF course we are extremely jaded here in the #usedtosnowsatchmtns and pretty much anything less than continuous 40 inch plus days at Alta or the Bird with no lift lines is a complete disaster.

So by the standards set by most modern, global warming enhanced, bikini winters, and as the view from the top secret PPPC snow stake shows; this storm was ok.

Even down in the ditch known as Salt Lake City, winter can produce some amazing scenes;

Scenes that make even the most trophy of PC trophy wives start asking about how many autographed prints will be available;

While everyone was pretty stoked to get to actually wear our all mountain beanies, sweet/major label puffy jackets, and moon boots for a day and a half, official spring is just over a month away so any prolonged cold snaps are basically over.

Usually these types of winters are then never-ended by active cold patterns in late April and May that don’t do much more than delay the mountain bike season months after anyone gives a crap about skiing.

And so it goes; keep that bikini line waxed, gentle readers!

OH MY WOW! Winter here in the home range has gone from ATROCIOUS to FUCKING ATROCIOUS!

As you are no doubt already aware, The Pedal n Pole kicked off a long awaited new feature this season; Old Man Bentons Wasatch Winter Rain Calendar!!

Don’t even tell me you don’t remember who THE OMB is;

This fully integrated technological wonder of a calendar allows you, gentle reader, to follow along with Old Man Benton as he tracks all of the days when it rained instead of snowing here at 7,100 ft, base elevation of Pedal n Pole Park City‘s world head quarters located in played out, crowded as shit, Park City, Ut! (We had a small ski contest here a number of years ago when it used to snow called the 2002 Olympics)

Dammit! Those SkullCandy goons tagged our building again!

So it is with great fanfare that we announce the New Addition to the OMB Wasatch Winter Rain Calendar; SMOKE DAYS!

This is a day where rather than snowing it actually smelled like fire smoke because even though it is winter, California is still buring to the ground and sending it’s smoke our way;index

Here is a NASA diagram of this travesty in action;

SMOKE DAYS!!! Now appearing on OMB’s Wasatch Winter Rain Calendar! More fun that 40 inches up the LCC!

Of course 40 inches now refers to monthly totals in the LCC as opposed to storm totals but We did have the 90’s didn’t we?

Luckily, Lou The Magician at WPT got the 3k rolled out and groomed despite only 6 inches out of the last(and only) storm.

The Time For Snow God Sacrifices is NOW!!
