Snowbird, UT Report: Dense Powder Day Rippin’

This morning was crazy fun at Snowbird, UT.

Few people.

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…
