TSA pat down, paid a fortune to bring my skis but powder tomorrow!

Travelling for that long anticipated ski trip can often be a work out. Today's TSA pat down and full body scan was actually quite uneventful after all the media hype. Paying a fortune to bring our oversized bags was more traumatic. But Utah is expecting the storm of the century...hopefully not more media hype. The other hitch in our happy plan, our son's drive to meet us from Montana was thwarted when they closed the road at West Yellowstone. He's stranded at a hotel watching the storm, and snacking on McDonald's - the only "restaurant" open in town. At least he can indulge his passion for fast food.

More reports from the snowy Rockies of the Wasatch Range...happy turkey prep & powder day for the school kids in Utah! See you on the slopes.. http://www.familyskitrips.com/


  1. Next time the TSA guy asks about your skis, I suggest you not tell him, "well, iike, they're like a couple of rockets." Unless you want the pat down.

  2. Hope you have a wonderful time! we'll need to see some pow shots to get motivated to travel out there more than every other year!

  3. Hey Stu & Wayne,

    There is plenty of snow here in Utah (already passed the 100" mark)...the Bird was awesome today - mid winter conditions, cold and blustery at 11,000 Hidden Peak. Now if our son would just arrive I'd be totally thankful...he's on the road again from West Yellowstone.
    Happy trails from Alta! - Heather
