Yesterday at Winter Park, CO was yet another good day (isn’t any day on the mountain a good day?). Having avoided the resort since Friday, not wishing to contend with the holiday crowds, we were rewarded with 10-inches of fresh powder.
The snow was deep, way deeper on the Mary Jane side, but a little heavy, surprising given the below zero temperatures.
Yes, it was cold. The clouds clung to the mountain, adding a bone-chilling moisture to the air. But the snow conditions were squeakily awesome, there was no wind and the bump runs and chopped up heavy powder were enough to warm us between chair rides.
We took one ride up the Panoramic chair to ski Parsenn Bowl before they closed the lift. The untracked stashes we found in the trees either side of the chair line were epic. We will head straight back there tomorrow for more of the same.
With just under 7-feet of snow in February alone, Winter Park has a 67″ base and is almost 100% open. There is more snow in this week’s forecast too, and looking outside right now it’s beautifully sunny.
Still around zero, but sunny. This coming week will be awesome.
