Colonel you asked about the new peruvian chair at Snowbird; we were there Friday 3/9, bluebird skies, super snow from the previous day. They were having a Freeskiing Contest on/in the North Chute below the tram, must've been 700 people set up like festival seating at a concert watching skiers from all over the world, sponsor tents, snowball fights really cool scene.... anyways the high speed makes access very easy and has really incresed the traffic in Peruvian, the tunnel is cool but we only used it to get to Mineral Basin, one trip over, spent some time there and skied back out thru Little Cloud, Road to Provo was a double black that afternoon. Here's something i never noticed b4, found this ravine off bassackwards, skiers right of Gad2 lift. The sign at the gate warned that the terrain was ~inbounds but not on the trail map, enter at your own risk~ or something to that effect. The ravine dumped you into the trees and the out was to traverse thru the trees or down thru some steep deep bumps back onto bassackwards, very isolated, pretty cool.
Thursday 3/8 at The Canyons, got to ski around the new(used) Dreamcatcher lift, and most everywhere else, with RocketMan(Crush). The whole dream scape/daybreak area was full of heavy new snow, the 2" on the report was more like boottop deep, very little traffic, we had a blast
. The glades along the lift looked very steep from the chair and they have gates lower down to get in or you can enter from the top. That's always been my favorite area at the canyons, new terrain makes it even better.
