Report from April 16th, 2019
This morning was crazy fun at Snowbird, UT.
Dense, floaty snow.
Lap after lap of good times.
I started the day on the first tram – only access to the Little Cloud zone was available.
The snow up high was funky and a bit wind scoured with frozen ridges sticking up from wet, skied up snow yesterday.
But once I got halfway down the mountain, the snow became dreamy.
Dense, creamy, floaty, fun snow covered everything.
It wasn’t crazy deep, but its density gave it no bottom.
I cranked Gad 2 laps all morning until I suspected that Peruvian Gultch may have opened.
When I got to the tram, I met some guys who had gotten into the Middle Cirque Traverse, but by the time I got up there at about noon, it had closed again.
Gad 2 also closed at about noon due to an avalanche.
I was pretty wet by then so I cruised home dreaming of blue skies tomorrow…
