3/6/12 Variable Conditions & High Winds

Hello skiers and riders,

It was a light use day at Alpine Meadows today.  There were not very many people on the slopes.  It was just five degrees early in the morning, but warmed into the 20’s or low 30’s by noon.  Sunshine blasted the mountain sides, but a strong cold wind moved along with it.  Summit and Alpine Bowl were on wind hold all morning. Alpine Bowl opened around one in the afternoon.  We skied a few runs on Roundhouse.  There was decent snow in the Sympathy area and on the groomed runs.  Rolls and Knolls offered some soft snow on a hard surface, but other areas were very scratchy under a light layer of wind blown snow that fell the day before.  We did enjoy a couple of groomed runs off Scott Chair, but were rather disappointed with the conditions under the Alpine Bowl Chair. Perhaps you can say that the conditions were variable today.

Enjoy your day,

Andy
