The drive up the hill this Thursday morning was very soupy with dense fog shrouding the valley and much of the canyon.  2 or 3” of new snow had fallen overnight, covering the grooming from yesterday afternoon.  The visibility did not detract from the perfectly smooth and silky runs that were to be had by those few who showed up for the first Tram.  The off trail remains choppy and was not helped by the fog that moved continually through all day.  Windows of sunshine did peak through the clouds providing some clear shots down Regulator.  From time to time Mineral Basin cleared out with sunny shots every where.  The snow that fell during the day did not build up very much, keeping the fresh snow fairly consistent.  Longer turns were required to average out the slick spots, but the slick spots were few and far between, fortunately.  We will have to see what happens with the weather  in the next few days, but we are set up for greatness.  See you in the AM!!
