A few inches of fresh Essence covered the dance floor for this morning’s offerings, as a Spring weather system moved in overnight.  Variable visibility was moving in and out all morning, with  a couple periods of Sunshine illuminating the hill.  Traffic was light, so for those who showed up, there was untracked lines on the Groomers to enjoy.  Later in the day, the cold front moved in and began to deliver even more accumulation.  Last week offered the opportunity to move through the Tunnel, which I rarely do during the Season.  Here is a shot looking back at Miss KittyDSC03775and Wilma as we made out way through on the carpet for the Lupine Loop extravaganza.  There are lots of artifacts from the mining days now displayed all the way along the way.  I  can only imagine when all these items were new equipment.  I feel like a time traveler sometimes now that I am here having the Winter experience on skis here in the future.  I often thinkDSC03781about how it will be 100 years down the road from now.  Perhaps on of those old miners was pushing this cart, thinking what life would be like 100 years down the road, and here we are.  Just a thought.  Tomorrow, look for more accumulation to be on tap for the morning session. It is raining here at the Trailer, so we can expect a fair amount of cover.  There should be a bit of clearing as a short High moves in, but more precipitation is predicted for early in the week.  This new snow will be a really fun way to finish out the Season and make the last laps on the Peruvian side of the hill.  See you there for the fresh lines in the AM.  Don’t forget to SIZZLE!!
