Ski season started last week / by Eric Dacus

Before a friends wedding at Alta last Sunday (photos to follow soon), I got to get the first turns of the new season in with Rich. Oct 9th isn’t a bad way to start things off!

Alta October 9th

I’m sure most of this has melted off by now, but it looked like mid-winter last weekend. 


Really this is October?


Note the tracks coming out the bottom of Main Baldy Chute… ambitious!

Better than expected

The turns were much better than expected up high…


Icy at the bottom

And the ice and rocks a lot less fun at the bottom…
