The rain was cacophonous as it pounded on the Trailer all last night, signaling the arrival of fresh Essence on the hill.  The morning dawned clear as the storm clouds had moved off for the morning session.  On the hill a beautiful coating of freshness treated the attendees with enough cushion to make the off trail good to go. Here is a shot of the Upper Cirque looking mid Winter good with fresh tracks marking the occasion.  Photo:  Matthew Fischer.  524126_750395551725103_1980108931009898015_nClouds moved back in as the atmosphere heated up and the moisture moving up from the South which reduced the visibility, though there were times the clouds lifted and visibility improved.   The Rain is pounding on the Trailer once again as I write this, so look for some additional accumulation for tomorrow’s festivities.  That cushion will help make the new product feel even more consistent.  The temps. will be quite a bit colder as the cold front moves through overnight, with some activity still holding on for the morning hours.  There should be some clearing as the day progresses.  I will be there dark and early and will have a first hand report for tomorrow’s post.  IBBY!!
