The Sun was out in force for the first few hours of the day, illuminating Mineral Basin, where those big lines had been prepared for the folks who showed up early.  The tenderized lines held up for the first hour and a half, offering that cold granular feel that kept me doing laps back there for the duration.   On the Front of the hill, tenderizing efforts had been employed, making those lines fun and fast.  Light traffic kept the pace moving with no waiting and wide open slopes.  It was Customer Appreciation Day today and there was donuts, hot chocolate, and coffee on hand for everyone.  Here is a shot of Mr Collins offering me a personally selected donut to go with the coffee.  Thanks guys!!DSC02698The break came around Noon, when the hill started to soften up slowly.  It was great getting the goods before the consistency got too soft.  The off trail was slow in softening, and staying clear on those aspects was highly recommended until it softened up.  With the Spring feel, there are plenty of folks getting in the spirit of the day.  Here is a shot of Billy Bob sporting a very festive shell.  DSC02700Tomorrow, look for the weather to have changed back into a Winter feel, with snow expected for the next few days.  This will be a welcome change to the current pattern. Remember those smooth lines to keep the ride consistent, as this initial accumulation will take a while to cushion the old layer.  The cover is still very good overall, and any more cover will go a long way to smoothing out the dance floor.  DSC02706  I was thrilled to see Luis and Elizabeth, who were back visiting us after they had retired from the ski life and giving a life time to the dance.  Rock on folks, great to see you!!  It will be an interesting morning, and I will be staying close to the Groomers while I wait for it to build up.  See you there for the weather change.  IBBY!!
