There you have it… a Hematoma & a Puppy

Yes I blog(rant) sometimes. But usually go for months without doing so, and in this case almost a year. On January 13th 2012 I congratulated Alta on it’s 75th birthday, and since then we have chalked up outstanding daily living & plenty of time outdoors. Just no documentation here.

Let’s just say at this point [...]

Generation Alta

Here is a good one from Salomon Freeski TV. It’s about five minutes long, featuring some LCC local shredders who have been Alta pass holders since they were very small children. Fluid, natural, powder skiing…worth a watch.

Garage Skis

I keep saying that one of these years I am going to come out of ski bum retirement, and get back to more LCC powder. Keep in mind 8″ of low density snow at Alta after a dry spell is “dust on crust”. I am talking about plentiful deep or storm ride days……..

Seasons Greetings 2010

Be merry, and ask Jah for more snow! From our wee cabin in the Uintas, to your home wherever that may be, enjoy the season.

November Cold Smoke

Let me give you an idea of what we’ve been up to in Little Cottonwood since the last post. BIG GRIN This is Johnny B on The Daily POW…and you can tell just how cold it was that day by the silence, and the cold smoke.

Alta in 1971

Anyways Mark posted another great piece of vintage Utah skiing footage [...]

The Daily POW

So we installed WordPress at AltaCam recently, but it’s not linked up from the site yet. I found the Panorama Theme by Themocracy from Underground Parent…and I think it’s damn sweet. I just customized the header graphic that came with the theme by using an array of ski photo contest winners over the last few [...]

Vintage Alta POWDER

How about this Alta footage! You may have seen this last year on the AltaCam Ski Forum, but a few weeks ago Mark (the guy who shot the film in 1974) posted a new, high-quality version. The best part about this: Although there are more people and tracks nowadays, the blower pow hasn’t changed a [...]

Powder on the brain..

..contributes to stuffy and sleepless summer nights. In fact just tonight I was laying there restless, thinking about powder skiing. I went to my Facebook acct because no sleepy for me, and on my feed page I saw that Jeff had just posted a new clip on Youtube earlier in the night. It’s below for [...]
