The clouds were hanging low on the upper third of the hill this morning, making for a serious white out, with extremely difficult visibility. While there were some lines in Mineral Basin I was thinking about, I worked the Peruvian Gulch to get the best references from the trees. Freshly prepared lines had been worked, making Anderson’s Hill, and lower Primrose path the perfect velvet carpet ride on the lower mountain. The lower elevations were below the cloud deck, so visibility was much improved, but the upper third of the hill remained shrouded in the fog.

The statue of Dick Bass is an inspiring tribute to his legacy.

After Noon, the cloud deck began to move off, but the visibility remained variable. Tomorrow, look for more prepared lines to be offering deluxe velvet carpets, which will let you dial in full platform engagement with every turn. After that long stretch of hard pack, it is a real treat to be able to trust a turn with no question. I am hoping for better visibility and will look forward to getting some of the Mineral Basin lines that are waiting for some love. Coverage is excellent and a wide open, full fall line drive approach is welcome. Nothing like power blasting the still point. Stay Frosty!!
