The Sun was shining brightly this morning after a forecast for overcast for the early hours of the day. Beautifully smoothed lines had been prepared on all sides of the hill, which offered velvet smooth turns as the fresh snow got tilled into the mat. Temps were still quite cold for the morning session, but the high Sun angle was going to be working the aspects quickly. Getting to the High North aspects early would insure the soft dry feel.

Kevin Canton sent this shot of his line out at The Alter. North facing aspects were prime and good to go.

Anderson’s Hill and Lower Primrose Path were as good as it gets, with dry chalky velvet that let you dial in your inner Ligety. Later, after Noon, the lower aspects got sticky and sloggy. I bagged it to save my knees. Keep in mind those wet sections will freeze overnight and will be fairly tricky in the AM. Forecast is for increasing showers and flurries. We’ll see how it shakes out, but I think the prepared lines will still be offering some nice corduroy in the AM. Keep it tight!!!
