The skies were overcast all day today, with just a few open windows of Sun from time to time just to keep you hoping. The Groomers were wide, smooth, soft and ready for prime time, however, after the new installment, the mat was a tad punchable as anticipated, so care through the turn was important to avoid a tweeze. I was sticking with the known smooth lines that I had scoped out last week and they were still working well and kept the ride consistent. Mineral Basin was offering amazing groomers, low traffic and wide open lines. Here is a shot of Doc getting a nice powder pocket during a very short Sun window.

Mikey M sent this great shot of Doc out on one of the remote lines that were off the radar.

After Noon, the chop began to build up as the day warmed up, and I bailed to save my knees from the static. Tomorrow, look for a partly cloudy day, and there may be some overnight accumulation. I will be hoping for some wind work to smooth some of the higher elevation lines. Keep an eye out for some buffage. The Groomers will, again, be offering great lines on all sides of the hill. The mat will be much more consistent with the fresh retill of the mat, but I will be feeling each turn for those tell tale signs of the punch through.

Neil got these stylin’ new goggles at the Winterfest raffle yesterday. Big field of vision and excellent flat light detail make them very nice.

See you there for the fresh prepared lines of smoothing that will be on tap. Perhaps we may see some better visibility, we’ll see. Watch Your SIX!!
