Light stormy conditions were on tap for the morning session, with variable visibility, light snow fall, and some awesome Groomers ready for fun on all sides of the hill. With overnight wind, there were some wind smoothed lines that were supportable and fun. Mineral Basin opened after a couple of Trams landed and there was some Sun peaking through the clouds that were piling up on the front side. There was a time when it was storming to the peak on the front side of the hill and a blue bird day in Mineral Basin. Wild times. Here is a shot looking South when the Sun busted out and you could see it all.

The Storm broke for a little while this afternoon revealing a misty vista from the top of a Lewis and Clark lap.

I was looking for smooth all day and found perfect carpets that had been prepared by the Cat Crew. Lone Star was offering steep smooth chalky lines that were super fun when the world drops away. Here is a shot of Team Powder, who were planning the day and where to find the Pass to Alta.

With the improved visibility, I took advantage of the window to scope out some areas, but stuck to the smooth carpets for fun and excitement. The clouds moved back in bringing the visibility back to near Zero Zero. I bailed at 2 PM to deal with a bit of Vertigo. Tomorrow, look for more amazing Groomed lines on all sides of the hill, and be keeping an eye out for more exciting new lines that may have been prepared. This is the perfect material to work into deep pile shag.

The hill is in great shape wall to wall, with just a couple of dodgy entrances showing up with all the traffic. See you there for the early carpets. Dial it up, Dial it in!!
