Very blue sky and tremendous visibility that put yesterday’s black and whiteout world to shame. Minimal post-closing snow gave a little refreshment to today’s cut pow pillows and we did our best to finish it off. Mission accomplished. What we couldn’t ski out, the sun turned to thick, lumpy crud after noon.
It was a fun day with a couple Amigos back from sickness reserve, and another few reappearing while Amigoette had to sit this one out.
Early morning Frontsides were fast and furious. Our stashes in Exterminator Extremities had filled in and demanded recutting. And the special side of EH was the smoothest and deepest of the morning. Chair Six had a good sized line so it was PB and out. A line I haven’t skied it for awhile in PB proved to be the run-of-the-day. Maybe the best ever upper Powder Bowl run. The lower half was top 10.
I’ll keep it short in a “you should have been there today”… and yesterday kinda way. By noon, everything in the sun was cut clumps of heavy crud. As the sun descended, it started to turn crispy. I’m hoping for a big crowd tuesday to chop it up and smooth the crunch. (It will not happen with the light crowds.) We’ll see what wednesday brings.
There will be very minimal new snow til late wednesday afternoon. I don’t expect the light post-press-holiday crew to do much skier grooming. So some new for thursday, leftovers friday. Warming and sunny saturday and on. Hopefully turning into some spring skiing.
