I got an early start on the day with an invitation to join the 7 Summit Tour. The Sun was just rising when we got to the peak and it was shining a golden light on the low clouds in the Valley’s, making it feel like Heaven.

Morning light illuminating the Mineral Basin for the early Trams.

The Groomers on all sides of the hill were offering smooth turning on the soft nap of the corduroy. The light on the front of the hill was flat, but some of the details were illuminated by the reflected light coming off Superior. Here is a shot of the Valley before the Sun rose up over the ridge.

The days are getting longer, and the Sun is rising earlier, but the Front of the hill takes a while to light up.

After Noon, the machine worked lines began to scrape off, leaving slick tiles that kept me averaging the turns to even out the variations. Tomorrow, look for another great day on the hill with smooth groomed lines for the morning session, great visibility, and nominal temps to keep the ambient comfort pleasant. The off trail continues to present challenging conditions, with some dry chalk in the low spots, some stiff crud in the areas that have seen less traffic, and lighter traffic. See you there dark and early for the festivities. Watch your Six!!
