Hello skiers and riders,
Given the lack of really great snow days this year, I think we can discuss today as an epic day for the 2011 and 2012 season. Epic in many ways as far as I am concerned. First off were the epic lines at Scott and Summit Chair at certain times of the morning. Second was the epic weather that was not predicted. Third was the epic snow that waited for us this morning. It was so nice to ski in the trees without the worry of a snow snake popping up and grabbing a ski.
It was a beautiful powder morning that included sweet turns in Seldom Slides, Gentian, Sympathy, Yellow Trail, God’s Knob, Gunner’s, and even a few off the Tigel Chutes. High Yellow was filled with soft snow as was D7. I missed Sherwood, as it opened late, and did not get up Summit until afternoon, but that did not dampen the great feeling of skiing powder and soft winter snow all day.
It was a difficult day for the snow safety crews who were out trying to make the mountain safe for us. No one wants to wait in line, or look around and see lifts that are not open, when lift lines are long, but it was just one of those storms that made opening all lifts by 9:00 O’clock very difficult. The word was that Squaw was late opening lifts as well. The turns we made early off the Roundhouse Chair and Scott Chair allowed us to quickly forget the fact that all of the parking spaces in the various lots were taken.
Enjoy your day.
