Bright Sun and cold temps. greeted the Morning Crew as the Tram hit the peak.  Deluxe corduroy had been prepared on all sides of the hill, as the Cat Crew was able to use the quality of that last installment to work the goods into the mat.  Out in Mineral Basin, The White Diamonds- Lower Silver Dipper line had been given yet another fine till, which let you choose which approach was best for you.  It could be the full on minimal turn assault, or a more contemplative involvement in each turn.  What a treat indeed.  Lewis and Clark also was offering the low angle buffage, that let you lay it down like Ligety, leaving lacerations that rival the tracks that TrenchZilla has been seen to leave.  On the front of the hill, a dry chalky feel was on tap top to bottom with a special fresh till of 4 new passes on Chips face that screamed for a dig deep approach.   Here is a shot of some of today’s Hydro Velvet up close and personal.  How sweet it is!!!  DSC02723Tomorrow, look for more great Grooming lines to be fast and fun on all sides of the hill.  The marginal warmth of today’s temps. did not really affect the pack beyond the most surface layers, so we can expect more dry chalky feel for the first few hours of the day.  The High North is still holding up nicely, with the cold dry soft snow still happening out of the Sun’s reach.  The lines have been smoothing with the lack of heavy traffic, so more aggressive lines can be taken with out the jarring effects of the interference patterns. DSC02724  Here is a shot of Pagan Bowl that has finally been signed with some nice looking tracks.  Great conditions are happening despite the low snow fall this year.  IBBY!!
