The Sun shone all morning long after a forecast of overcast skies.  The clouds finally moved in around 1PM. when the lights went out.   The groomers were smooth, though very firm, requiring a very deliberate approach to the fall line.   I was in full on smooze mode dealing with the early morning flat light that comes with those early Trams.  The Sun rose up in the sky to give detail to the dance floor, and you could see the treads of dust that were the place to put your turns.  The pressure for the goods has not stopped on the hill, with the shots across the street getting a lot of attention.  Here is a shot of the South East facing section of Superior with a lot of fresh tracks from top to bottom. DSC02348Off Trail, the interference patterns are building up quickly as the traffic is looking for options.  The guts are sporting a medium amplitude with a higher frequency rumble further out from the obvious lines.  The off trail still provides the remaining vestige of softness, and the underlying base is firm but consistently supportable.  Some new lines were offered up today, and while I considered a look at these lines, I deferred to the younger folks to work it in and pack it out.  These lines got good reviews, but entry is tricky at best.  Tomorrow, look for more firmness to be the order of the day, with, perhaps, some additional weather moving through the Front.  Coverage is much better, but firmness will be the major factor.  See you for the morning fun session.  Syrup won’t stop ‘ EM!!
