The Sun was shining brightly this morning and there was a building breeze out of the South as the next storm cycle moves in over the next few days. Nicely prepared lines were on tap on all sides of the hill, with Mineral Basin offering the Sun, but after yesterday’s warm temps. White Diamonds was a tad crispy but had enough traction to make good turns. The West facing aspects were frozen solid and would take until 2PM to soften. There were some dry chalky treats in Peruvian Gulch which let you shave cold nap off the corduroy lines. Just perfection. With light traffic, back to back walk on Trams were going off and hot laps were easy to make.

Making a tunnel run to break up the flow and get a fresh look at Lupine Loop.

Tomorrow, look for increasing clouds as the next system works it’s way into The Front. Expect very crispy lines where the Sun was working today, but the High North and shaded lines will still be holding the cold chalk. Traffic should be light again and the front side will be offering those top to bottom prepared lines that pay big dividends with no traffic and consistent quality. IBBY
