The morning was a perfect blue bird picture, with beautifully prepared lines on all sides of the hill, as a stout wind was blowing keeping the pack refrigerated, and light traffic on the hill. Mineral Basin had been given some extra love from the Grooming Crew, where steep lines had been worked that let you dial it up and dial it in. The front side of the hill was offering great groomed lines as well, with some North facing off trail aspects still offering fairly smooth lines that have been holding the cold and smooth now for days. Here is a shot of my friend Stuart, who has been on the hill since day one back in ’71. He seriously rips.

Pipeline Bowl and The Rasta Chutes frame the scene with Stuart who understands the rhythm of the hill.

With the wind holding up all day, the pack was very slow to warm up, keeping the North aspect fast and fun. I went out to look for off trail smooth and found numerous lines that have been maturing with time and light traffic. Tomorrow, look for some overcast to be moving in as the weather is about to change for the weekend and next week. I have been employing my best visualizations to prime the Quantum Foam.

Team M & D were enjoying the day and stopped to enjoy the high energy at The Summit at Hidden Peak.

M & D are avid readers of the Site and I so enjoyed meeting them on The Peak. I know they had a great day. See you there, dark and early, for another shred fest. Keep it tight!!
