The first hour of the day offered some great morning freshness, as the Cat Crew had prepared  beautifully tenderized lines on those Lewis and Clark drops.  It would not last long as the traffic built up and skied off the fresh till.  The front of the hill was offering dry chalky lines, however, the last short section of vertical was a bit crispy.   Mark Malu was good to go from the first, and it kept up for quite a while before it was discovered and became a bit more busy.  The High North is still offering the cold and dry lines, and those looking for off trail variations will find negotiable lines if taken with care.  Here is a shot of Timp. from the top of the Baldy Chair as the air was clear and crisp.  DSC02670The Exotic Trees still offer the dry chalk on those North facing aspects, but the interference patterns have some high amplitude going and will require close attention.  They have been doing a nice job on Bananas, which makes that diversion a must to take in if you are on the gas and are moving around the mountain fast.  I love to keep the pace going with the empty chair lines and wide open slopes.  There was a bit more traffic in the afternoon, but there was plenty of room to move.   Tomorrow, look for another crisp morning with the South facing aspects slow to soften if today is any indication.  More tenderizing efforts will be offered, so go looking for those early treasures.  The day will warm up for sure, but expect that cold morning air to be bracing.  Don’t forget to SIZZLE!!

    Haven’t seen “sizzler” stickers for decades. Time for a rebirth?

    Man, does anyone actually understand a word of what you’re talking about?!

    Those that know, do know indeed. Those who are unsure can pick up some of the inside info by reading between the lines.

    @Bob…..Dave uses a language that sometimes only ‘the faithful’ can understand. Keep on skiing and the language will come your way. Open your mind and let it drift in. Like snowdrifts between the pines…..

    Dave paints a very clear picture, a true artist. After working all week, thanks to him, I know where to look for the best lines on a day off. THANKS DAVE!
