Alta’s 75th Anniversary season kicked off this morning with plenty to write home about. Alta Ski Patrol opened all of their lifts, besides Supreme and Cecret, and even better opened most of their terrain. Considering that the High T didn’t open until January 26th last season, having it open on day one felt pretty good. There were still plenty of rocks around but with the creamy smooth snow conditions it was hard to complain. Baldy Shoulder and Ballroom skied extremely well especially if you ventured further out and braved the rocky section of the traverse. Thirds skied equally well minus the more noticeable rocky sections. High Boy was decent down low but the upper section was completely ruined by a slide that went pretty much down to the rock. Overall it was a fantastic opening to the 2012-2013 Alta ski season and with more snow on the way we’ll be trading out our rock skis in no time.
