Shades of gray was more than a good thing today at Alyeska Resort. Ramblin’ cloud (heralding hoped for snow) rolled in on Alaska’s quintessential ski mecca and looks to stay.

Thursday’s version of ‘clear spell’ at Alyeska, AK

Thanks to steadily increasing winds, the seemingly trillions of base-stacking micro-flakes meant refreshed lines all day and, by the looks of the forecast, it’s only getting better. Shy Silvertip hid behind thick cloud nearly all day, meaning wind-dashed, sugar-light pow runs to those who braved the white out. While Mambo, South Edge, and South Face kept grins wide with near ceaseless cool-whipped freshies.

Tantilizing top-to-bottom tours on North Face marked the day’s sole outer area skiing. Alyeska Patrol did well to get the iconic DBL Black open to public before winds and swirling snow re-closed the face.

Pleasure cruise to POW stash.

With Spring Break mere moments away, the clever are sure to keep the following in mind: limited outer area access today means more than a little fresh pow tomorrow, and holiday hoo-ray means night sessions at Alyeska are on!

This Paulie at Girdwood advising: bring the snorkle just in case!
