There was bright Sun, blue bird skies, and a much cooler temps. this morning with the wind chill around 9 Degrees to start out the day.  White Diamonds and Lower Silver Dipper had been given a righteous treatment of that big drop, making it feel like a Super G run top to bottom.  That was worth as many laps as you could get in before it was discovered.   Lewis and Clark offered some of the most velvety corduroy of the morning, with total consistency holding up as much turn as you dared to lay down.  You have to love perfect when you get it.  On the front of the hill, Lower Primrose Path was also given the total treatment with a smooth dry chalky feel with no static to deal with.  What a treat that was.   I was drawn onto the Road to Provo while I chased this shot of the Moon over Pipeline.  It took several tries, but I got it right where I wanted it.  DSC02564The colder temps. helped preserve the quality all day long with not much in the way of deterioration happening, though those direct aspects were taking the heat.  Tomorrow, look for another great sunny day, with the Groomers offering the perfect corduroy out in Mineral Basin.  Soft snow is still to be found on most aspects, with some very nice quality holding up on the High North.  I was mining those smooth lines all day long and they were still holding the goods when I left.  I don’t think we will see much in the way of wind, but there are lots of lines that remain smooth and rippable all without machine assistance if you are looking for the off piste.  See you there for the morning fun.  Don’t forget to SIZZLE!!
