Alta opened the backside today – Greely.
We weren’t the very first ones out there, but it was still great when we got there with fresh powder and plenty of open space.
It’s still thin, so we recommend taking it slow and easy.
We did a few laps in Greely and enjoyed the easy living of the rope tow back to reality.
Groomers off the Collins chair were fun and cruisy today.
Chopped up pow off the Wildcat chair was fast, poppy, responsive, and fun.
Maybe I’m becoming a goofy old guy, but I’m loving the Wildcat chair lately…
A big storm is rolling in tomorrow.
Be safe driving in the canyons tomorrow and be aware the weekend will be busy.
We recommend skiing Thursday Friday, then coming back on Monday 🙂
Have a great weekend.
