The groomers were beautifully prepared, the Sun was shining, the temps were cold but comfortable, and the wind was blowing with insistent intent all day long. That transported dust from off trail was accumulating on the corduroy lines that made for a 40″ of Zero % situation that let you dial in untracked lines all day long and it never got tracked out. Out in Mineral Basin, White Diamonds, Lone Star, and lines on Lewis and Clark started out the day with amazing feel and sunshine that made the day very 3D. Here is a shot of the Moon over Twin Peaks that speaks to the clarity of the air.

The Moon was suspended in the sky, watching over the perfect lines in Mineral Basin.

Traffic was light, and back to back Trams were on tap that let you dial in all the lines as fast as you could rap them around. The wind continued all day keeping the smooth surfaces untracked and perfect. Here is a shot of Brian Beck out on Baldy coming out of The HYPER ZONE back into the next turn.

Light and motion combine with spectacular effect when speed and power are added. Flyin’ Brian Beck getting maximum acceleration.

Tomorrow, look for an over cast sky with some flurries expected later in the day. The Groomers will still be offering the perfect smooth lines that were happening today and should hold up all day. With the holiday weekend, traffic will be stout, so stay ahead of the crowd and take advantage of the Peruvian chair when the Tram backs up as it has been pumping and fast. The off trail is still dry and chalky, but there is a rumble and static that is pesky, but is easily dialed in. I’ll be taking the day of to rest up. Dail it up, Dial it in!!
