Hello Skiers and Riders,
It is 50 degrees at the Summit and 58 degrees at the base of Alpine Meadows this afternoon at 2 pm. We ventured out this morning and lasted an hour and a half. Alpine Bowl was groomed and quite nice spring snow for the first couple of runs. Below the bowl we found firm corduroy that softened later in the morning. Off piste was not great, but soft. The surface just has not transitioned to corn. Alpine has announced it will be open until April 5th (Easter Sunday). Hopefully there will still be some snow to slide on in a week.
Most interesting this morning was the single groomed track leading down Werner’s Schuss from the top of Roundhouse. Relatively narrow with frozen, chopped up, bumped out snow to the sides. Photo of this rather narrow run is attached taken by Martin Meyers.
It is time to get on the bike or start hiking.
Enjoy your day.
Valleygirl also submitted a couple of photos from today…can’t wait to get out there tomorrow!
