As I sit here waiting for a taxi to whisk me off to Salt Lake City International, I am reflecting on the killer skiing I have done in the past week.
For one thing, the terrain in Little Cottonwood Canyon is incredible. Alta and Snowbird combined offer either inbounds or “sidecountry” access to just about any type of terrain you can imagine, including extremely steep couloirs that look as if they belong in Alaska.
And then there is the snow. I will write a more detailed post later, but suffice to say that it has snowed over 50 inches since I arrived. Andy has been an excellent guide, and I am leaving tired and happy.
I came here in search of something I had never experienced before, and I found it. And for that, I am sincerely grateful.
(OK, I wrote the last three sentences just now, in Boston. But I wrote the rest Friday evening, in the moments before my cab arrived.)
