Alta has seen better days. With no fresh snow in almost two weeks conditions are starting to feel rather pathetic. Alta Ski Patrol recently made it possible to access Baldy Shoulder without having to navigate the rock gauntlet. The snow was hit or miss but in between the wind effected crust was some decent cream. Traversing the now rocky High T out to High Boy is unimpressive both out and down. West Rustler is still skiing ok but the fabulous chalk we had a couple days ago is mostly gone. Snow forecasts are looking decent for late this weekend. Alta sure could use a fresh plastering.
