Nice pic. I think its the top of millicent double and there is a bootpack to the top of millicent on the left of the sign and a track that heads towards solitude to the right of the sign. [image]http://community.webshots.com/photo/283186859/283223072cGWzqn[/image]

Just to elaborate on the two "Darwin's Law" shots above from Utah; the first was taken at Brighton, second at The Canyons. The guys in the The Canyons shot appear to be a bit more responsible about skier/boarder safety. Their album also contains the following two images indicating that they skied through an area this past season that avalanched a half hour after they made tracks.

yup ... Dutch's Draw. They took out that lower gate after it rolled ... those guys are typical of some of the dumb-a$$es on Jan. 14 when Dutch's decided to roll. Anyway now you have to hike about 7-10 minutes up to the high gate so at least it separates the wheat from the chaff a little. But there are nice runs off of it. Gotta know when and where, tho ......

As always, great photos Jim! You're "catches of the day" are becoming one of the highlights of the board- for me at least (that and Denis' ski stories, especially the one with his grandson on Tuckerman's). Thanks!

How about Jim and Scott get something setup on the frontpage that Jim has submissions every, few days? That'd liven up the frontpage a bit especially during the off season.
