The mountain opened at 8:00AM this morning to an enthusiastic turnout.  Mineral Basin was prime as the warm morning temps. kept the freeze from hitting too hard.  I hit the front of the hill where it was certainly crispy, however, tenderizing efforts had been employed to give some lines of traction, but it was going to take an hour to get good.  Just after 9:00AM. the goods got good, and the sorbet effect was kicking in.  Shaving off just a half or so of freshness was a corn sensation that was only going to hold up for a very short window.  I kept lapping the front of the hill, hitting both gulches, where the consistency was sweet and carvelicious.  It took a bit longer for Emma to hit the window, but when it did, I was thinking lower Tri Chute apron good.  You just have to use your imagination, but it was that good.  Thanks Cat Crew.   Once again I took a quick time out to hit the Forklift Chair to let that window open.  Tomorrow, look for a similar timing on the break, excellent corn goodness duringDSC01507 the window, and a really nice day of spring skiing no matter when you arrive.  Here is a shot of the Powder Mafia and the Jort ski crew getting together to salute the King of Rock.  Lake Effect was playing on the Plaza and was a lot of fun.  See  you there for the fun in the early AM!!
