It was cold and windy today, with the snow driving on the peak. Peruvian Gulch had a short delay so I waited with the others who had their heart set on the goods waiting there.

Team Clemanator were warm and cozy in The Summit waiting the opening of Peruvian Gulch.

Visibility was marginal, but the cover was soft and silky on the prepared lines. There was plenty of untracked sections if you looked around that offered full platform engagement in each turn.

The Peruvian Gulch opened and with it the Baldy Traverse which offered smooth deluxe lines that were a real treat. The Snow Guns were blazing top to bottom, with long lines of Gun Powder that felt amazing underfoot. Anderson’s Hill had been given the industrial smoothing treatment, which was also a nice addition. I used all of the pitch to dial in some dry chalky turns. While the crowd showed up in force, the lines remained very short. Tomorrow, look for some light overnight accumulation, great grooming efforts and more of that Gun Powder to dial in. There is plenty of great snow to find so keep your eyes open. Straight Ahead!!
