I got an early start and got up the Canyon just before it got dicey. It was dumping wholesale and I slipped in under the wire. There was a large turnout of The Faithful, as the signals had been sent, and the big Freestyle event was going on as well. There was plenty of overnight accumulation covering the hill that was light and deep, but the underlying substrate was still reflecting through, so working the smooth lines helped the ride quite a bit. Extensive Grooming efforts made for plenty of smooth, steep lines that were just perfect underfoot. I went out far afield today to stay out ahead of the crowd and found excellent cover and previously wind worked smooth. Here is a shot of Kat Dean getting the goods in one of those fast moving Sun windows yesterday. She got all of it.

I bailed a bit early to avoid a 2 PM Canyon closure, but the free refills were hard to leave. Tomorrow, look for more deep conditions, and continued flurries. Dress for weather, and use the Chair options to stay ahead of the back ups. The hill is fat wall to wall and you can count on any line you choose to offer amazing quality. You just can’t go wrong.

Sadi getting the best last day of his season.

This is Sadi, who has been living the Snowbird dream all season and was getting in his last day before returning to Japan. He will be back and I know he will be dreaming of the deep all Summer.
I’ll be taking the day off tomorrow, so get the deep turns for me. Stay Frosty!!
