The wind was rockin’ The Trailer this morning as the cold front began to send signals out ahead of it’s arrival. Up on the hill, the wind was wild with heavy gusts, which put the Tram on hold. The Faithful were in full attendance and ready to get to up on the hill to get into the short overnight accumulation. The Gad side of the hill was opened first, with the Cirque Traverse opening later. There was a full range of consistencies, that made aspect choice a key element. Here is a shot I took the other day of the snow shapes that were created by the wind and Sun.

With the delayed opening, I worked the Forklift Chair to assess the options and headed for The Trailer to get out ahead of the Front that was incoming. That Front did move in around 5PM., with heavy snow and some serious wind as it passed. Tomorrow, look for a morning road closure, so check the reports for access. There will be a fresh installment of Essence on the hill, and we will have to see how the wind affected the various aspects. The hill is fat wall to wall and you will find great lines if you watch your wind directions. We’ll see you there for the festivities when I get up. I will be in no hurry and will be watching the road cams for updates. Speed Safely!!
