Opening week at Alta turned out to be one to remember with numerous premo days. Unfortunately, Mother Nature’s early snowfall is starting to show it’s age. Traverses are becoming rocky and slopes hard packed and icy. However, venturing out to High Boy is still worth the trip. Even with the low-light viz we found plenty of decent turns, especially in the upper section where it skied smooth and chalky. You had no problem digging an edge in and with the snap of a ski you could blast yourself with some chalk shots that almost made you feel like you were skiing deep for a moment. The lower section, although a bit more bumpy, had some perfectly aged graupel to turn in. It looks like the sun will poke its head out again tomorrow and with the small holiday crowd gone you should have no reason not to shred.
