More overnight accumulation brought much lighter Essence to the hill, which was of excellent quality.  While the new installment was not the ultra light, it was a perfect consistency to make the old layer only a hint under foot, and face shots with every turn a real treat. The Faithful were in full attendance for the opening bell, so I worked the lifts and lines that everyone ignores and got some great turns with no pressure at all.  Mineral  Basin opened around 11:00AM, which offered excellent quality as well, as the still air left the big expanses there unaffected at all.  Here is a shot of the Hillary Step area waiting in the wings with the Sun just peaking through the clouds to illuminate the dance floor.  I went all over the hill and there was great snow on all aspectsDSC03708that I tried.  Some sections had very deep pockets that offered some of the deepest runs that I had all year.  Hoots and hollers where echoing all over the hill as the faithful luxuriated in the goods that delivered one of the best days of the season.  Here is a shot of the Snowbird Subaru with a full coating of the Essential Substance.  DSC03707Tomorrow, look for great conditions wall to wall as the cold temps. and the highly filtered sunlight preserved the quality all over the hill.  There are still areas waiting in the wings for tomorrow’s offerings. I think you will be able to go where ever you choose and still find great snow.  The Groomers should be really nice for the morning session, but may get a bit choppy as they get worked.  More unsettled weather can be expected for, at least, the morning hours.  There may be some more overnight accumulation as well, as we get some wrap around impulses as the Low moves East.  What a great beginning to the Spring season.  See you there for the continued excellence of this storm cycle.  Speed Safely!!
