Two winters ago, Alta stopped recording snowfall when they hit 700 inches. It routinely sets the record for the state.
I try to make a yearly or bi-yearly pilgrimage to Alta (or snowbird, depending on who I'm with). There's nothing in CO right now, and I'm thinking a Utah trip is in my near future. Love, love, love it. So many good memories (and one or two near-death experiences).
Zissou... how did altering the CDW jacket go? Success?
It's going well. I just haven't had the time to work on it in a couple of weeks. I've gotten as far as taking in the tweed on the sides. Now, I just need to hand stitch the lining back together, refill it with the down, sew the bottom of the sides shut, and redo the quilting on the sides. I'll get it done next week and post pictures. I took a good 5-6 inches off the body!
Glad to see you kept the Cameraman. It looks great.
Have been stalking a Margiela belt (the bi-color blue suede and dove grey one.) Pull there trigger at $119 at Barney's today. (which means, hopefully, it actually is in stock). Down from $270. Wanted that belt since it came out, but I have so many already, so it was a "Let's see if my size goes to deep discount somewhere."
I think that this is the way we should approach sales - as a chance to pick up something you have actually wanted, but can't really justify at retail.
