Despite storm warnings for today, the morning provided Sun and fun for the morning crew. Mineral Basin was prime and ready with soft corn conditions right from the first chairs. The front side of the hill was quite firm and some limited tenderizing efforts had been employed, which gave good traction and some nice feeling turns. Out in Mineral Basin, the off trail was providing some nice lines that were fairly smooth and soft enough to make the turning easy and fun. Here is a shot Kyle took of me out on the Bookends.

Fairly smooth lines and soft corn were on tap for the sunny skies that greeted the Faithful who were on their way up the Canyon.

The first hour was a lot of fun, but the Faithful were making their way to the hill and by 11AM the back bowl was seeing some traffic. I worked the front side as it began to break around 10AM and enjoyed some quiet time. No one was riding the Little Cloud chair as Regulator was quite firm and going to take a while to break. Today may have been the last day of the season as the pack is really going fast and some of the critical tight spots might melt off making for some issues. We’ll have to see how the week shakes out. Keep your eyes on the Bird site for updates. Have a good week. Enjoy!!!
