If you were around this week, you may have heard and even seen activity from the Jupiter zone. As I mentioned in my last post, this snowpack has started to get a bit active. We had another natural release in the center of Scott's bowl on Tuesday. David took a closer look at the slide and determined a snow hair had bounced across the bowl and found the weak spot. Yes, sometimes all it takes is a rabbit to cause an avalanche. The following couple days we returned to Main Bowl and Scott's with explosives to attempt to clean out the remaining weak snow. Bruce Tremper, director of the Utah Avalanche Center joined us in Scott's on Thursday and shot some great video. Thanks again Bruce for helping out!
Originally from the Pocono’s of Pennsylvania, Travis found his way to Park City three years ago and is now our grooming manager. When not in snowcat you can find him skiing or snowmobiling in the Utah backcountry or enjoying the skiing here at Park City Mountain Resort.
