That weather front that is coming our way is a very slow moving system sending out wind waves out ahead of it’s arrival. That wind has been doing some nice buffing on the hill, with transported snow and filled in lines on the hill. The prepared lines were really sweet today, offering dry chalky velvet turns top to bottom, letting you extract as much juice from each turn and you could get. Sublime!! There were brief windows of sun that were certainly tempting, but flat light made visibility marginal.

A great looking pie on the Summit was taking center stage as I checked out the offerings for the lunch crowd on the peak.

While there was pressure for the goods, the lines seemed to back off around Noon, so back to back Trams were on tap and big vertical laps were easy to get. With the wind blowing, the quality really held up on all the prepared lines and some of the off trail lines began to fill in a bit later. Tomorrow, look for a storm day as the front moves through and I expect a slow start on the day. Dress for storm riding, with difficult visibility issues. Stay with the trees for the best reference points. Straight Ahead!!
