After days of storm clouds and fog, the morning offered nice visibility, with filtered Sun through high thin clouds. The Road To Provo opened, offering smooth frozen lines that were just barely supportable and felt velvety smooth, and required a very soft touch. Here is a shot of The Rasta Chutes looking super smooth and all filled in.

The Rasta Chutes totally filled in and perfectly smooth for today’s offerings.

Mineral Basin was offering very nice machine worked lines and light traffic for the first hour, but became more active as folks showed up, but there were plenty of options to stay ahead of the push. Here is a long shot of the view from the bottom.

Beautifully machine worked lines made the cruising smooth and reliable.

Slightly cooler temps kept the quality good for a long time and let you pick and choose different options quickly and with confidence. On the front of the hill, The Peruvian Gulch had been worked, with Hot Foot Gully getting a surprise till. Lower Primrose Path felt smooth and velvety and only later became a bit manky. There was great music on the Plaza to keep the festive feel going.

These guys were great and delivered a great set selection, and had great dynamics that made each tune really stand out.

Tomorrow, look for a stormy day as a Low Pressure system is moving in and will bring more precipitation to the hill. Dress for weather, and expect limited visibility. Look for the machine worked lines to be offering the goods, with the off trail looking very dubious. See you there for the morning offerings. IBBY!!!
