Over a foot in 24 hours. Definitely a powder day and a damn good one to be out on the mountain. I headed out at lunch time to get my turns in and found that even at lunch time there was still powder to be enjoyed. I met up with Sam from Red Bull who is in town for the weekend. We started with a couple people and each run lost more and more until it was just us enjoying the powder turns in the trees.
The powder was good, some rough spots on chair #22 where rocks were barely covered but lower in the trees it was a blast making turns. Deep in spots and still had some freshies.
Closed runs for avalanche danger. The top of the mountain was closed due to winds and avy danger, definitely not worth it to duck these ropes and deal with the consequences.
I’m still learning the mountain, haven’t done all the chairlifts or runs but I took Sam to one spot I had been…and learned that on a powder day it meant hiking out. Still it was a blast!
What a great day of shred! Can’t wait for tomorrow, it’s supposed to snow up to 10 feet this weekend which means even more snow to enjoy on the mountain.
