It was a tad brisk here at the Trailer this morning, so up on the hill the softening was going to take a while.  That feature would make the day last longer before the quality of the lower mountain went South.  The usual Spring attack pattern, which begins with the fast laps in Mineral Basin is the best bet for the opening bell. The Cat Crew has been doing a stellar job of keeping the steep smooth lines fun and fast. Yesterday, as the Morning Crew was suiting up, The Bliss Brothers made an early morning appearance.  They always bring the stoke and were ready for big day on the hill.  Tomorrow, look for another great day of Spring conditions, with those Mineral Basin Groomers offering the go to lines to get the day started out right with the ground pounding vertical that the Sun softened corduroy offers.  The front of the hill will be offering the goods as well, but give Regulator and those mid elevation sections a bit of time to soften.  The hill is still in great shape wall to wall, but the off trail has set up pretty much on all aspects.  As softening occurs, the off trail will begin offering lines that will be negotiable, but be sure to test out the pack before a commitment to the line.   See you there for the morning fun and holiday festivities.  Dial it up, Dial it in!!
