Seven inches of soft and pretty dense snow fell yesterday and last night at Alta which made for surprisingly fun and fast conditions. There are still plenty of rocks and random hazards on most of the terrain but certain spots are really filling in to the point where you can begin to send it.
High Boy and Baldy Shoulder definitely have good coverage in most areas. The Backside early on right when it opened was really fast and smooth. The wrap around traverse to access the top of High Boy was worth the short commitment of time. Thirds also had some great snow and is starting to fill in a bit. All in all the mountain today was alive again. Soft snow and blue skies and relatively mild temperatures made it close to epic, on 2018 standards of course.
