Friday The 13th was definitely a lucky one at Alta Ski Area, UT.
15″ of new snow overnight.
Alta has already seen 13-FEET (157″) of snowfall to date.
Alta was ripping today.
We started off on Wildcat and it delivered.
We migrated to Collins and didn’t turn back.
High Boy was crazy fun.
That run is legit.
We smashed High T laps until our legs couldn’t take it anymore.
Alta is a truly fantastic place.
Oh, and the weather was great in the morning with some sun and light winds.
Around noon it started to snow and the new round of storms rolled in.
NOAA has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Alta that runs until 5pm Saturday.
