Happy Weekend Warriors Day Skiers and Riders,
Thick high clouds rolled in early this morning leaving early riders to guess the terrain they were riding over in very flat light. Gradually giving way to sun though, most of the morning was fairly bright and cheery with immaculate groomers and fairly low crowds for a weekend. The lower gates in the Chutes opened up early on with Lowball, Cutthroat and Miller Gates on the menu. In the early afternoon the snow had warmed on the South and SE facers that it had a definite corn like quality. This resulting in some pretty good off-piste skiing on the ridge line into the chutes below Cutthroat. Playground and below was in relatively good shape, considering this last month and last weekend’s off-piste conditions.
It was Fiesta Day at the Slide Lodge and Gus’s salza was better than ever, not too mention the margaritas, Coronas and chicken fajitas being served on the deck with Mexican costumed muchahas.
It looks as though the clouds have thickened however and the end of the sunny day seems to be here. Nevertheless, a good day was had by all and crowds were not too bad. Tomorrow looks to be similar weather wise but with the added benefit of having all the football nuts off the slopes, at least later in the day!
