Yesterday was one of those special days that you don’t ever forget.

Sunshine, 6-8″ of new snow, large terrain, and the Alagna Rat Pack.

We rode 4 lifts directly to the top of the mountain, traversed, and dropped into some impressive lines in creamy powder snow.

After descending 6,000-vertical-feet, we were back in town.

Coffee, biscotti, then back up.

We skinned up to a chute with a dreamy, powdery gully approach into a hallway of vertical walls with heavily wind pressed snow then another wide open powdery gully back to the lift.

Back up.

Off the back into some Tahoe-esque terrain with bumps, jumps, cliffs, and chutes.

Took this run 6,000-vertical-feet back down to town and directly to the Cafe Delle Guide for big sparkling beers and great Rat Pack company.

We met back up with the Rat Pack at 8pm at the bar for more beers and pizza and a talk about what we’re gonna get into tomorrow.
