There are certain things that happen each year that mark the changing of the seasons. Flowers bloom, leaves change, the temps drop, folks around town start wearing bennies, the first flakes fly and one of my personal favorites WOW starts the new "obs" thread on Telemark.com.
WOW, as he is know, is a person. Bob Athey or the Wizard of the Wasatch has for years started the unofficial/official depository of backcountry trip reports and observations for the Wasatch.
Well the leaves have changed, I've indeed got to put on a beenie and the thread has been started.
Pray for snow!!!!!
