getting by

January 6, 2012

According to most reports, the Wasatch is off to the fourth worst (worst being driest) starts to Winter in, like, forever. Since people who cared started keeping track, anyway. And it’s the worst in over 35 years.

I stole this from a Backcountry.com Facebook post:

This winter of my discontent has not helped alleviate the year of the Great Suck, nor has it diminished my ennui.

However, THIS has helped:

The snow may not be deep, but it’s kind of like Utah lake–8 feet isn’t deep, but it’ll float your boat.

It’s deep enough for this:

And this:

In short, we’re getting by.

We’ve missed you Ian:

Maddy, it may be deep enough to ski, but if you’ve gotta sit one out, this is the one to do it.

    I’m wondering why I ever paid $600 for new snow tires last November. I’m considering swapping them out early and saving their tread for another winter. I thought this WAS the driest winter on record, not the 4th driest. Remember, though, you were still skiing on decent snow in, what, May? Even June?

    That’s a pretty big drop in those last two photos, ballsy.
