The skiing over the weekend was not half bad despite the extremely warm temperatures. Corn was abundant in the morning hours and was skiing fast and grippy. In the afternoon the snow started to get very sticky and any of the freshly fallen snow from earlier this week that hadn’t been skied up yet thickened into mashed potatoes. There were still good turns to be found on High Boy thanks to the ample amount of skier traffic, creating some soft zipper lines. You could also find some fun turns in West Rustler and Eagle’s Nest but the snow was skiing noticeably more grabby than High Boy. All of Alta’s lifts besides Collins were closed this weekend so don’t expect anymore Wildcat or Sugarloaf runs. There’s still one more weekend left though so get your last Collins laps in while you can.
