Solitude's Monster Dump!

If it dumps during the Holidays, the spoiled rotten skier that I am, can often be really cranky.  Why you ask? Well, when I ski powder I like having the place to myself. Hell, that’s why I live in Utah. I know, I’m selfish.  Trust me, I’ve been hearing this since I was 2 years old. 

When the resorts and tourists alike are fortunate enough experience a Monster Dump on a Holiday essentially everyone wins. This is great for the resorts and even better news for those who travelled here to experience The Greatest Snow On Earth.  In other parts of the country this can translate into full parking lots and long lift lines.  When your lucky enough to ski in Utah these issues really don’t effect us all that much. Why?  I have no idea... 

What I can tell you is that Solitude Mountain Resort reported 12 inches of snow yesterday, classifying it as an official “Monster Dump”. The place was a ghost town Thursday. I couldn’t get over it, nor could I explain it. But I sure was grateful.

Enjoy the edit I threw together.

"For me skiing The Greatest Snow on Earth is not just a hobby; it’s an obsession," exclaimed Baydala. "Now I have the opportunity to share this awesome life we live out here with the entire skiing community."
