Mongo Like Powder. Anyway, there was disappointment today in the lift line when riders found out that Zephyr is down for the rest of the day and maybe tomorrow as well. There is reportedly a broken com line that is fiber-optic in nature which needs AT&T attention to repair. Might be done sooner than later, but I would bet on later. Before you bitch uncontrollably keep in mind that all this snow has led to attrition both in staff and equipment. We are going down in the history books this season folks… they are doing their best up there to get fixed. A simple “thank you” just might go a long way.
In any event, the skiing was fantastic on the Rose side with cold smoky pow on the slopes. Even the cut up stuff was fun! The only thing that wasn’t fun were the crowds which you can imagine were pretty big given the recent snow with only the front side of the mountain open. The Stokemeter was high as more snow crystals hung in the 15 degree air and it felt like the middle of winter on a really good year. Its just hard to complain when its so damn nice to be out (but some will find a way). Hope your day was as good as mine. I took my time on the way down and took some pics… check out this Sentinel Tree in the morning sun. Beautiful!
