Snowmass, CO Report: Perfect Corn and Lightweight Powder in One Run

Report from Monday, November 16, 2020

Today was a great day of skiing. I had school today, which forced us to start early and get a lap in. It took us about an hour and a half to ascend a little over 2,000′.

For our descent, after yesterday’s rock garden, we opted to ski down a run that had human-made snow that they were grooming in hopes of better snow coverage. This paid off, and we skied some beautiful consolidated corn snow that had thawed that morning.

Lower on the mountain, where the bed surface was grass instead of rocks, we drifted off the groomed run and into the powder, which was absolutely beautiful skiing. Last night, the cold temperatures pulled a lot of moisture out of the snowpack, so it was surprisingly a lot lighter than yesterday’s snow.

Overall, a great way to start the day!
