Considering most of us weren’t expecting the Supreme Lift to open until tomorrow, hearing that it was going to open at 1pm today was a pleasant surprise. Alta Ski Patrol chose to open it a day early as a way of getting some skier compaction in before tomorrow’s storm moves in. Supreme Bowl and Catherine’s skied as fast as you could ski it. The snow was creamy smooth and the coverage was good enough to allow skiers access into most of the Supreme chutes. If you missed today’s opening don’t worry, there’s plenty of fresh left and I imagine the now lift-accessible Rocky Point has lots of great snow to slash around in. Get some!
