That was me moaning. Just left yesterday. Two trips in three weeks where my
timing was just off. And add my week in Jackson in January between dumps and my
three days in Steamboat right after a good one, I grade my season an F for
powder luck. My one good day in Alta keeps it from an F-.

Hope your last day was a good one.

Fred

My last day? That sounds like a threat.

Look, it's not *my* fault you keep missing the good stuff.

Weren't threats eliminated from here recently?

I could have added "at Alta this 2003/2004 season while it was still open
unless you plan on hiking up or getting a lift with an insider" or something
like that.
