Andy Wertheim: Today Was A 9

Hello Skiers and Riders,

The powder has all been chewed up (at least most of it), but excellent cold skier packed powder exists on much of the mountain.  Soft skier packed bumps, a few untracked patches of nice left over powder, and sunny skies made the skiing today wonderful.  All major lifts at Alpine were open which made traveling around the mountain fun, especially with so many prior days when no much was available.

We skied D6, Pigmy Forest (under Alpine Bowl Chair), High Yellow, Chute That Seldom Slides, Gentian Gully, Sympathy, and a few runs off Lakeview.  With the visibility being very good, surface conditions like a good day in Utah, and the entire mountain open, plus a small crowd, I would give skiing today a 9.  If it had been a foot or so of light powder with the same size crowd, it would have been a 10.

Enjoy your day,

Andy Wertheim
