High pressure persists over the West and the inversion has set up in the valley. While the Valley remains quite cold, the upper elevations have been warming up with the rising Sun. It was another day of training runs on the hill, with carpets of nice grooming on the main run. Those early runs were good to go with fresh nap to dial in the turns. Here is a shot looking up at the Regulator Narrows that had been machine worked in advance of the opening of the upper mountain tomorrow. Tomorrow, look for the promised opening of the Tram to the Faithful for the first time this season. It will be Regulator only, which will be a great addition to the available terrain. I saw an early morning shot of the upper mountain posted on FB today, and it looks well covered on the prepared areas on the hill. It will also be nice to have the full 3K for those top to bottom laps to help get in shape for the big dumps, which you know are coming. See you there for the first Boat and some smooth cruisin’ on the velvet carpets. IBBY!!
