The pace was fast and furious this morning, with full on carpets of AHHHHH to ply, fresh powder to flatten, and sunshine to make the day Technicolor. Mineral Basin was offering the smooth groomed lines that let you explore your inner Ligety, with full platform engagement rock solid with every turn. Ski Patrol Gully opened as I hit the top of a Lewis and Clark exploratory run, where the subtle Northwest facing aspects were soft and smooth, but the Sun had crusted any aspect that it saw yesterday. Here is a shot of The Bookends Chute when I was passing by on the way to the Sunday Cliffs.

Perfect Powder looking steep and deep.
Malissa driving with the top down. It was perfect day to let the freak flag fly!

The Sunday Cliffs opened while I was riding up the Mineral Chair and we got to work 2 magical lines that were epiphanistic in quality and orgasmic in experience. It does not get better than that. In the front of the hill, ground pounding fun was prepared on all sides, with dry chalky lines of perfection letting you dial in any turn you chose. Tomorrow, look for another perfect day of Spring sliding on all sides of the hill. Be aware that all the South facing aspects caught a lot of Sun and will need a while to break. The Groomers will be offering still dry chalky quality that will be consistent top to bottom. Traffic should be light and max vertical will be easy to rack up. The High North facing aspects are still dry, cold and soft, so get ’em early. See you for the ground pounding fun.
