Alta received it’s first big dump of the season last weekend. I’m not exactly sure how much snow fell but I did watch the snow depth recording hit 19″ at one point this past Sunday. I skied that afternoon and the freshly fallen snow was extremely sticky. I had to literally straight line Punch Bowl just to make it down.
Yesterday, however, was a different story. The cold overnight temps helped to dry out the snow providing great skiing conditions. We decided to try our luck with High Boy and were pleasantly surprised! It was rocky up top but the main gut skied smooth with little to no shark bites. It looks like we return to Fall this week with warm temps forecasted to take control for the extended future.
