Conditions at Alta today were insanely good for a 6″ dump. Most gates remained closed yesterday retaining fresh turns for today. Baldy Shoulder and Backside both opened at the beginning of the day with Devil’s Castle dropping it’s gate around 11:00.
The fresh snow skied light and fluffy with minimal bumps underneath due to the buffing effect the high winds had on things earlier this week. Crowds weren’t too bad considering the parking lot was pretty full and slopes stayed fresh well into the day. The forecast doesn’t look great but there is a chance of some precip impacting the state Saturday and Monday.[youtube width=”630″ height=”360″]https://youtu.be/5wa95jwF1w0[/youtube]
