The snow at Alta today exceeded expectations by a long shot. Admittedly we weren’t expecting much to begin with. But Alta Ski Patrol really worked hard to get the lower half of Wildcat open first thing and surprisingly Ballroom and Baldy Shoulder opened mid-morning.
The snow was light and deep where you could avoid rocks, as early season conditions still exist. Tombstone area on Baldy was skiing fantastic. The groomers are also filling in nicely. The 2-week forecast is no bueno so get out there now while this fresh dump is still light and dry.
