There was bright Sun and smooth sliding to kick of the morning session. Mineral Basin was offering big winch groomed lines that were steep smooth and good to go. The South facing Groomers and off trail lines were quite crispy to start, but by Noon they were softening with the warming temps. and direct Sun. On the Front of the Hill, the High North aspects were still holding the cold dry chalk, but the heavily traveled lines are now seeing the interference patterns building more widely. The Crew stopped for the Forklift Debrief and found Kayla and Natalie trying out the optical fashions from the Lost and Found box. They look quite studios as they style these lenses!!The quality of the snow remained high all day long, even though the temps. were creeping up, and I found cold dry lines at 3:00PM on the High North aspects. Tomorrow, look for the weather to begin to change as a small storm moves into the Front. You can expect extensive Grooming to be the best of the day. That big smooth feel is really addicting when you dial in each section and string them all together. It may not be quiet as warm as today, so dress accordingly. I will be taking the day off tomorrow, to catch up on the Galactic Hubbub. IBBY!!!
