I was on the 7:40 am bus and in the gondola line at 8 am for the early holiday week opening at 8:15. The report at 5 am said 3 inches of new snow but I wanted to be out early to beat the crowds anyway. As it turned out three inches was more like five and it made all the difference. A great morning of skiing. Fresh tracks down Rainbow was excellent. The bumps on Surprise were also particularly good as was 2 O'Clock and skiers' left of the Daze. It's still snowing and forecast to continue all night, so tomorrow could be the real deal.
Here's today's track. 15,026 vertical ft (season total 334,840 ft) in 2:14.
