A furious impulse moved over the hill during the early morning hours leaving a fluffy surprise on the Dance Floor. The Morning Crew worked The Big Smooth on the front side to take advantage of the tree’s reference points in the difficult visibility. With 4 to 5″ on the mat, the turns were sweet, smooth, and offered full platform engagement with each turn. We took a Peruvian Chair to access Mineral Basin to check out a Lewis and Clark lap, to find the Sun shining back there, lighting up the bowl and adding great detail to the vis.

Emerging in another Dimension with the Sun shining and no one around to get the smooth powder.

Lewis and Clark was offering deeper lines of light density Essence that the wind had moved to the low lying terrain features and long threads of deeper deposits. Later, there were some windows of Sunshine teasing the Faithful with some open holes in the clouds. It was nice to see the hill. Tomorrow, look for a clear day as the impulse moves to the East. There may be some additional accumulation as the clouds move out. The Groomers will be offering amazing lines that you can trust with full edge sets without any loss of traction. There are still some lines out in Mineral Basin and The Road To Provo that may get opened after mitigation, so keep and eye and ear out for announcements. The off trail is still quite tricky with the crusty substrate still in the mix. There are smooth wind lines that can be found so take a look around and explore. Never know what you’ll find.

The ladies of the Host Program are on the Peak to help with questions and directions. It is always a treat to see them on the hill.

See you there for the soft smooth lines of the Carpets of AHHHHH, first thing in the AM!! Keep it tight!!
