It was quite chilly this morning, but the Sun was unobstructed and lent some warmth as it gained the sky. The Groomers were wide open and were dusted with some silky Gun Powder under the guns. The off trail continues to consolidate, with soft snow on the surface that helps the ride, but the underlying rumble still is persistent and requires close attention. I went out looking to those off trail sections that are standby lines for me, but I still found stiffness increasing in the medium. Here is a shot of two gentlemen who were getting their first taste of Snowbird and liking the new Subaru mascot that was parked on the deck.

These two folks were stoked to be rockin’ the hill and were enjoying the Sun warming the deck.

I was doing fast laps all day as I continue to push the envelope on stamina goals. Got to be ready to throw down when the next big dump goes down. Tomorrow, look for more great lines on both sides of the hill. The Groomers will be offering the goods, with consistent, dry, chalky lines that let you dial in your inner Ligety. Keep your eyes on Mineral Basin as it may open. Keeping my fingers crossed. If it does open, expect a wide variety of consistencies all around the dial. I’ll be looking for lines that have not seen the Sun. See you there dark and early for another pre Holiday wide open day of shredage. IBBY!!
