A surprisingly clear morning greeted the First Tram after some overnight clouds moved off. Once again, the Groomers were offering some ground pounding fun on the untracked corduroy. Having Mineral Basin brightly lit was a treat. Off trail is still holding up with cold dry chalk that is very easy to work on the High North aspects, and is resisting the build up of interference patterns. Here is a shot of perfectly placed corduroy in the morning Sun. This looks almost stroboscopic if you look at it too long!Clouds moved in around Noon as the Cold Front moved through, which threw a curve to the bright sunny day. Tomorrow, look for the usual Groomers to be the place to dial it up and dial it in. Following the Sun is beginning to be the key these days later in the Winter, so paying attention to that will pay big dividends. I will be on the hill dark and early. See you there for the First Boat. Speed Safely!!
