A foot of Spring Frosting coated the hill, and the faithful were in full attendance for the opening bell.  The new product was very high density, which cushioned the old layer, making the ride smooth and silky for when it was untracked.  When the pack got stirred up, the harbor chop rose quickly.  The Peruvian Gulch opened a bit later as well as Mineral Basin, which did not take long to get worked over.  Here is a shot of the Snowbird Subaru sporting the deep coating of freshness there on the Plaza.  DSC03792Before the Peruvian Gulch opened the Sun came out and illuminated the dance floor with tantalizing vistas of the new product waiting in the wings.  Here is a shot of Lower Primrose Path DSC03796that illustrate how spreadably smooth the new frosting was riding.  It was great to see the energy on the hill.  Tomorrow, look for more precipitation to be moving in during the day.  The Groomers should be offering great lines of smooth corduroy, but the off trail may be a bit manky.  We will have to wait and see.  Check the Bird site for chair availability.  The base is back up over 100”, so there is plenty of snow going into this last stretch of the season.  See you there for the morning session.  Peace Out!!
