Report from Monday, March 7th, 2022

Today was a good day.

Today was the best day of my season so far.

One of those where you go out for a ‘couple of runs’ because you’ve work to do later but end up skiing more than six hours, bell to bell.

I guess I’ll be working tonight.

Winter Park Resort reported 6″ overnight, on top of the 3″ that had fallen the previous 48-hours.

It was cold, but we didn’t care. Visibility up high was poor, but that was because it was snowing, so we didn’t care.

The snow today was perfect Colorado blower pow; soft and light. And way deeper in places than the 6″ reported.

When the conditions are this good, there’s nowhere else I’d rather be skiing.

The bumps on Mary Jane were filled in soft pillows.

The trees on Vasquez were untracked. We floated through Gambler trees, Buckaroo trees, and Sundance trees in untracked fresh powder.

Eagle Wind was finally good; the base was covered up with boot-high powder offering fresh lines in the steep bumps and trees all day.

Belle Fourche was open. And it was good. It’s often sketchy in here, but when it’s good, it’s special. Today was special. Fresh tracks and face shots.

The Cirque was the Cirque. We made it there just in time as the gate was being closed. We took ten turns before the runout, but those turns were awesome. Slightly heavier powder, but still boot deep and fresh tracks on the South Headwall.

We even dropped into the halfpipe.

Today was a good day. And looking at the forecast, there are more days like this in the near future. With Spring Break looming, we’ll be sure to make the most of the empty slopes this week before the crowds flock in.

Ok, time to start work…
