An overnight freeze set the Bird up for great corn today.  Balmy temps. on the peak and bright Sun working Mineral Basin made the  turns soft and creamy from the word GO.  I was sticking with the groomed lines, but after the pack broke, I put down a line on a one day old grooming line on Lone Star that just screamed back country goodness.  On the front of the hill, it was breaking later, with smooth sorbet lines top to bottom if you held on the illuminated aspects that were responding to the Sun.   There was high excitement with everyone getting stoked on the goods.  Here is a shot of the high spirits with Pipeline framing the fun. The quality held up with Regulator and The Road To Provo finishing the break after Noon.  All these lines felt like great back country conditions.  Tomorrow, look for more great corn to be on tap from the opening bell.  Cold overnight temps. will make the first runs a bit crispy, but the Sun will be working it early.  I will be rolling in again for a 9 AM Tram, as I know it will be prime time for the morning session, and I get to sleep in a bit.  Here is a shot looking up at Baldy Bowl with all that corn filling in the high country. There is that much snow up in the higher elevations, so cover is great all over the hill.  See you there for the amazing corn extravaganza and fun music on the Plaza in the afternoon.  Don’t Forget To SIZZLE!!
