After the last stretch of heavy storm  and visibility issues, today’s sunshine made the features stand out in fine detail.  The overnight wind had scoured all the loose snow, leaving only a few threads of sugar to follow.  The scoured areas were breakable and grabby, sending me traversing back to the groomer which was smooth and carvalicious.  Low traffic  kept the run smooth and consistent all day.   The wind also uncovered the reefs and knolls revealing the rastiness that still lurks just below the snow surface.  The lower pitch off of Pucker Brush was particularly cleaned off, leaving the heavy traffic on that line to deal with the meager lines through the choke points.  The energy level is huge, with the fast runners letting out all the stops.  Keep an eye out as you change fall lines or cross a steep line to avoid any speeding surprises.   The word is that Friday might be the day the Peruvian Gulch opens for the first time this season.  It has been filling in nicely from the transported snow from this past wind storm, and the continued installments we have been receiving.  Tomorrow , look for another smoking day of full on training, in full vision,


with great snow top to bottom.  I have not been seeing too many rocks, just a little one here and there.  See you in the AM.    Here is a shot of the Middle Cirque just waiting for YOU!!
