Today was one of those great days that you didn’t expect. It’s the perfect formula: show up expecting nothing, discover that it’s pretty damn good, get your mind blown by how fun the conditions are. That’s what happened today.
No snow was forecast last night, but it snowed. It didn’t snow a ton, but it was just enough to cover up the old snow and wind blew just hard enough to buff everything out.
We got to the hill early and Nubes was untouched. We touched it. A lot.
The snow on Nubes was creamy, cold, buffed, and fantastic.
We skied all Day with Aimee’s 70-year-old dad (who came from California) on the first day of his 10 day trip and he said:
“If today was the only ski day I get here, I’d be completely satisfied!” – Jim
We lapped Nubes without stop until 3pm when we cruised over to La Laguna for a lap. Laguna had seen a full refresh and the snow was terrific.
We were able to ski to the bottom today and only had to take our skis of twice.
Freakin’ great day today.
Today was the 5th powder day in a row here.
Forecast looks solid!
