Good morning skiers and riders;
Mt. Blows is living up to its name today as the West winds are rocking early this morning on both the Slide and NW sides. The Chutes remain relatively protected and a good choice for skiing today as well. Feels like an inch or two are spread fairly consistently in the lee areas of the wind. Runs like Bonanza and Central Pacific had a nice coating of pow that was light and blown. The corduroy wasn’t too bad either and had not become hardened with the wind overnight. Most of the Chutes were in much better shape than yesterday particularly on the leeward sides like Jackpot, Cutthroat etc. Winds in the chutes were nonexistent which made the long ride up the chuter chair a blessing as one could finally warm up. The sun is playing hide and seek today but for the most part visibility was pretty good.
The wrap up: new powder coating, no crowds and survivable winds if you are dressed right. Go for it!
