Chipster,
Give me a shout when you come out. I'm a ski and snowboard instructor at Snowbird on the weekends. Been there over 20 years and still don't know all the secret stashes but know more than most.

Sounds great we stay over in Park City but I love to ski "The Bird" it would be a real treat to ski with a local. Thanks for the offer. and I will give you a heads up when we come out. Because of my daughters wedding and things going on at my wife's work we may not make it out until near the first of the year.

Sounds like this is some special American tradition. In Australia when people "come out", they don't really celebrate it as a special occasion. Good luck to you.

Yes it is special to ski or snowboard at Snowbird, we average a min. of 500 inches of snow per year with a top elevation of 11,000 feet. We are known for our champange powder snow. So I extend the invitation to you too........

KD,

The oven seem to draft much better but I did do a rip roaring curing fire and completely cleared the dome and the etch sun plug was smiling at me. Still getting soot staining but it is what it is. All and all happy with the drafting improvement.

Hey, don't give away one of the best kept secrets in world skiing. Oh I guess I just reinforced it.

Wow, we went to Japan to ski last Christmas. Townsville in the tropics at Christmas time is murderously hot and humid.It was the first time I'd experienced really good powder, snow so dry that you can't make a decent snowball. Had only skied Australia and New Zealand prior, the snow is Japan was incomparable. You are making me daydream again.

Able to achieve a full dome clearing last night and the etch sun plugged popped out. We made about 20 pizza and only one calzone by accident this time. I have to remind the guest that less is best on the pizzas, they seem to pile it on. Everyone to busy stuffing there face and no pictures of the food taken . Good sign I guess. Going to seal the concrete today it warms up enough, only about mid 40s right now.

Russell - Don't talk too much about the 'bird. I usually make it out to Utah at least once a season. You may find me knocking on your door as well...
