The snow that has been accumulating at Alta the past couple of weeks has been wet and dense. Towards the base it has gotten manky, grabby, and annoying. It has been a very wet (for Alta’s standards) storm, but also very beneficial. Traverses and tight rocky chutes are filling in all over the mountain and landings are solidifying.
As for today, the wind kicked up and West Buffler was in FULL effect. Skiers were absolutely shredding the entire west face and hour after hour the shredding continued. You could ski from the High T to the bottom of Jitterbug in under a minute easy. Haven’t seen the edit yet but it should tell the tale. The skiing was very fun today. More snow to come all weekend long!
