Visibility was good for the opening bell, but the clouds were lowering quickly and snow was beginning to fall as another impulse moved in. The Grooming Crew prepared perfect carpets, as that last installment was great material to work. White Diamonds-Lower Silver Dipper got a fresh till in Mineral Basin and was a real treat with the failing visibility. There were some excellent off trail lines that were left over from yesterday that were feeling better with some wind massaging the pack. Here is a shot I took from the far reaches of a Lewis and Clark sojourn.

Smooth wind slabbed lines out on the fringes were a treat for the morning session.

The Front side of the hill was offering great prepared lines as well with the Anderson’s Hill-Lower Primrose Path combo offering off the chart dialable turns that offered full platform engagement. Snow continued to fall all day, keeping thing fresh. The Road To Provo opened to some very challenging conditions depending on aspect. I bailed out of the main line I was taking to escape the thick crust I ran into and headed directly back to the smooth and silky. Tomorrow, look for a Sunny day, with great visibility. There will still be plenty of fresh lines out and about that will be obvious in the clear light. The hill is in great shape, but expect those variable off trail lines to be challenging in places. The Groomers will be all time top to bottom. Remain Standing!!
