The sky was cobalt blue today, with not a cloud in the sky and wide open lines on all sides of the hill. Mineral Basin was offering amazing machine worked lines that got your motor running top to bottom. On the front of the hill, the Groomers were dry and chalky top to bottom, with the exception of a bit of rubble on just the last 500′. Traffic was very light and it felt like a private resort, when you could fly down Primrose Path and not see another person. The temps were cool but very comfortable. The Twins were opened again today, with a lot of folks taking the opportunity to bag Pipeline. Here is a shot Mikey M sent me of his tips hanging over the edge of the chute. If you ever thought what it would look like from up there, this is it.

Mikey M ready to work his magic on Pipeline.

The hill stayed in great shape all day long, with Regulator breaking well after 1 PM. Tomorrow, look for more great Grooming lines on all sides of the hill. Look for new lines that may have been prepared. Check the Grooming report or keep your eyes open for fun. There is weather in the forecast, so there may be some clouds moving in, but we will have to wait and see how it turns out. Watch those South facing aspects as they will be very crispy and the off trail will be very difficult. Here is a shot of Team Sunshine, who are avid readers of the site and were taking full advantage of the crystal clear visibility.

Traffic should be light again tomorrow, so prepare for a vertical extravaganza. Syrup Won’t Stop ‘EM!!
