Oh wow; continuing with the “PC used to be a ski town” theme. #1 issue in PC is traffic congestion and highly limited parking. Now to ensure your industrial ski experience is the worst ever, Vail has decided to sell off the parking lots at PCMR!

At the PPPC we see this shitshow/clusterfuck everyday in the winter from the quiet confines of the back of the White Pine touring 5k which loops just below this lot. This lot fills up to capacity by no later than 830a everyday during the ski season. Then the overflow parks anywhere they can find packing the town over the brim with cars.

I guess the Vail Parking Fairies will just contruct a giant parking garage like the one that already exists in Vail, Co and costs 30 clams a day plus your $200 or so rack rate ticket and at least $100 for a burger and beer on mountain.

With a massive amount of hoops to already jump through just to get on the mountain, this adds yet another layer of annoyance to get out and do something that is supposed to be fun.

Of course the tourists will probably love it as they are known to love breathing in each others farts all day on shuttle’s.

PCMR barely qualifies as anything more than a terrain park/tourist trap resort anyways so here at the PPPC we really don’t give a crap how bad industrial skiing gets being over that over crowded nonsense for at least a decade now but it would be nice to be able to find a parking spot to get into the office since this type of money grab bs just pushes the parking into every other lot in PC thats on a ski bus line. Plus this lot has become THE central hub for PC mtb’ing spring through fall until the industrial ski giant reopens for the season.

Don’t look to the giants for a solution as the only thing that talks in Packed City is MONEY.

HAHAHAHAHA! What LOCALS!?!

The last locals moved out of PC 15 years ago as the private plane, “PC Family” vanity plates on the latest Lexus SUV crowd took over and they are all in their beach homes by 4/7 anyway.

Looks like someone thinks Park City is actually still a ski town!

LOL!

Even Though it was promised at least 6 months ago; The Old Man Benton Rain Calendar 2017/18 roll up is finally here!

Of course The OMB is not a trained meteorologist but in this time of heightened awareness of climate change/global warming, he feels his caustic opinion on how ski season is now a joke because it is 60f most of February is a needed resource to cut through ski resort marketing bullshit(like when Vail resorts has the “How Deep is it ” banner up on the Park city homepage a week after it actually last snowed and any trace of anything resembling pow has been packed into blue ice by soft tourists skiing sideways on triple rocker skis that are 190mm under foot…).

But enough complaining about the sorry excuse that now passes for winter here in the Wasatch and ONTO THE ROLL UP!!!!

Drum roll please……..In the 2017/18 season here in the Wasatch, it rained 18 days last season when it should have been snowing!

This comment from The OMB in early April/2018 sums it up pretty well; “Pretty sure I saw a PCMR ski Patrol this morning flicking rocks off Home Run with a Hockey Stick!”

Damn, can this situation be topped in 2019?

Only time will tell and do not forget that starting 11/18, the Rain calendar goes live and all the fun starts anew!!

Wow, I cant wait….

Get em tuned and burn a few if the snow is late!

P.S., gentle reader, here is a shot of the current snowpack here in PC;

Could somebody please remind Ullr;

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!

Think SnowJustin Latimer and the Holimont crew trying to make it happen!
