Today was the last day of the regular season and it would be the last Tram of the regular season as well. It was a balmy morning, with a fair freeze on the hill. Mineral Basin was offering the first break, and the front of the hill was bullet proof and very noisy. The Morning Crew worked the prepared lines in Mineral to start, but had to test out the front side of the hill, where we experienced the very firm lines and beat a hasty retreat back to Mineral to let softening occur. Here is a shot that Tram Rat sent a week ago, when the light on the Peak was very interesting.

This view never gets old and it changes by the hour.

Around 11:00AM the front of the hill began to break and it did not take long at all for it to full on slushie cup in one hour. When the lower mountain got too sticky, I called it a day and listened to the great music on the Plaza. Tomorrow, it will be chairs only, so dress for that. The weather forecast is unsettled, but I think we might get the morning out of the day before the weather kicks in. Look for the Groomers to still be offering the best lines and fast lap times for a low traffic day. See you there for the next phase of the last days. Syrup Won’t Stop ‘EM!!
