It remains very chilly these days as the wind continues out of the North. Mineral Basin was a bit softer this morning, with Silver Dipper offering soft prepared lines as it baked in the direct Sun. On the front of the hill, the prepared lines were still very crispy though you could get some traction from the wind deposited dust that was landing on some of the low spots. Traffic was light and walk on Trams was a treat. I stopped into the Summit on Hidden Peak to take in the ambience, and absorb the vibrations and view framed by the huge windows.

Sitting in the Power Spot under the center fan makes my hair stand on end. What a view of the Twins.

Tomorrow, look for another cool morning, with slow softening after Noon. I will be looking for the softening in Mineral Basin early and making my way over to Lewis and Clark for some low angle lines that make it easier to negotiate the firm conditions. A later start is recommended, and after Noon is not too late. I am a morning person, so I deal with the pack as I find it. Keep it tight!!
