Almost powder

The report today said three inches at 5 am, so I went out around 9 am thinking that three inches on the fresh groomers would be nice. I started out that way on Cyclone and a freshly groomed Tornado, and they were very nice, but then the desire to ski Closet came over me.

What a pleasant surprise. It wasn't particularly deep, but it was soft and even around 9.30 am it was still largely untracked. Seeing how good that was I followed up with the 3.30 trees and the 2.30 trees which were also excellent, as well as some Wally World trees, but undoubtedly the best run of the day was the trees to skier's right of Rolex which elicited more than a few sounds of delight!

Here's today's track. 16,838 vertical ft (season total 1,079,835 ft) in 2:26.
