Another 14 inches of October snow fell yesterday and last night. Skiers got after it early this morning, with fluffy but cloudy conditions. We couldn’t get up until after 3 pm, and the air was warming a bit, but the clouds were still hanging around.
By the time we reached the upper part of Greely Hill, the skies had begun to part, and we were treated to some beautiful winter scenery. At this point, we could see most areas at Alta had been skied. However, the rocky skier’s left side was untouched, so we went for it. One rock was definitely hit.
We traversed out to Eagle’s Nest for our second line and found the main gut hadn’t been touched either, so again, we took our chances and found soft untracked pow all the way to the creek. It was a really good day. More snow in the forecast, too, so it’s looking like this snowpack is here to stay. Keep your fingers crossed we don’t see too much warming in the next few weeks.
