Ski Used = Scott Super Guide 105 in the 184cm length
I ran up Mt. Baldy at Alta ski area, UT today – just for fun.
Alta has been closed for a couple of weeks, but the skiing is still great and there is a ton of snow.
They even got a bunch of new snow last week.
I decided to ski off the skier’s right side of Baldy into a steep zone that was fun.
The snow was new-ish, slushy, slide-y, and fun.
I had a ball route finding and ripping slushy turns on little wind spines and noses.
Alta is so full of snow right now after 626″ of snow this season!
Alta’s 2018/19 Season by the Numbers:
- Seasonal Snowfall = 626”
- Days with new snow = 52%
- Days with 6” or more = 27%
- Days with 12” or more = 14%
