Report from New Year’s Day, 2023

Brought to you by Vail Resorts

I stumbled out of bed at 7:45 am, threw my gear together, and got out there on New Year’s Day, 2023.

Park City Mountain Resort, UT was reporting 14″ of new snow, and I think over a 30″ storm total.

I was hoping that people would be too hungover to get out early.

I was wrong.

I got in line at the Orange Bubble chair and waited until 9 am.

I was a ways back in line, but not too bad.

At the top of the chair, a rope kept us out of the Sun Peaks & Super Condor zone.

We waited an hour before the zone opened as ski patrol cleared the avalanche danger.

The ski down in a foot of snow on groomers was as cruisy as can be.

The woods off Sun Peaks were a hoot & a challenge with downed trees, logs, stumps, and dense forest.

The wide-open south faces off Super Condor were deep.

After five great powder runs, I was satisfied and headed home at about noon.

It was nice to get out and ski deep snow, especially considering Little Cottonwood Canyon, Alta, & Snowbird were closed for the day.
