Freshness finally arrived as rain pelted the Trailer all night long and continued throughout the day.  Up on the hill only 5” was reported with an inch accumulation during the day.  That was enough to soften the ride, and make the faithful smile.  The visibility was an issue, but staying close to the trees was the way to keep yourself located.   I took the day off as usual to rest up for the coming week.  Here is a shot I took yesterday when the Sun was still out.  It made this wind blown section of slab look like an interesting sculpture.  DSC02080 Tomorrow, look for some additional accumulation overnight, though not much is expected.  The Groomers will be much fresher and soft, which my knees will really appreciate.  Remember that Gad 2 is now open and that area will be offering some very nice lines with the new snow.  It is another Customer Appreciation Day tomorrow, so be sure to get there early for the early Trams, doughnuts, coffee, and hot chocolate for everyone.  This is a very nice touch for the early morning start.  This new snow will go a long way to improving the conditions on the hill, and will enable some more exploration off the Groomers.  I will keep you posted on what I find.  Be sure to avoid those obvious high points and tight sections.   See you there for the goodies in the AM.   Ciao!
