As anticipated, the  light was an issue today, with only the very first Tram riders getting a quasi Sun period to get a good look at things.  The upper Primrose section was visited by the Grooming crew, who punched out both sides of the knoll, giving the section a top to bottom sweetness that is rare and full of terrain features to work from.  The off trail sections are still on the stiff side, though the North facing is still Ok.  The Groomers are the ticket, offering  a very velvety secure consistency that lets you commit to the Quality in the flat light.  By that I mean, when in doubt, you can trust the line to carry you through without any icy spots to send you off line.  The shots left over from yesterday were still holding up the smoothness, to make those a good variation on run choice.  I am always looking for smooth no matter where I find it.  The weather is predicted to bring only a small amount of fresh in the next few days, but that can change with just a wiggle in the Jet Stream.  You never know, but you can expect excellent conditions to continue top to bottom.  I heard that even more aggressive Grooming is in the plans for the near future, so be on the look out for some additional lines to be punched out and returned to pre traffic perfection.   I am looking forward to more high energy rippage with few takers, so be there to join the Vert. crew for non stop top to bottom boogie.  Where else can you go that fast with no one in the way and a perfect ride to boot.  You  would have to go quite a way I wager, and here it is in the back yard!!!   Still, avoid those South facing aspects as much as possible, cuz it’s crunchy!!!   See you in the AM.   IBBY!!

    You actually make it appear so simple with your presentation yet I find this topic to be really a thing that I think I would by no means fully grasp. It appears too complex and also broad for me. I will be looking forward for your forthcoming write-up, I most certainly will try to get the hang of it!

    IT really is all that simple. It is just one thing only, no more complex at all.

  3. I loved that post, one question though, can I link to it on my blog to share it with my readers ? Thanks.
