Report from January 12, 2021
I cruised up to Alta yesterday at 1:30pm after taking care of some errands in SLC.
It was 18ºF in SLC then 42ºF at the base of Alta.
It felt like springtime but with cold snow.
I went straight to High Rustler and found it deserted.
I took a few deep breaths and skied the run as hard and fast as I could and it was dreamy.
Hi Boy is smooth and flat and chalky right now.
Shaved ices all over the sprays like crazy.
It’s skiing very well.
West Rustler was also good shaved ice fun.
The groomers off the Collins chair were fast and supple.
I only had about an hour to ski but I made the most of it and Alta shone bright.
