The season is almost over, but not without more bottomless powder! The weather came in strong with thunder, lightning and winds. Graupel filled the mountain back in and eventually it turned to snow. Some hours were heavy at times, recording multiple inches per hour. By Sunday morning Alta reported 16″ of fresh. During the day it snowed an additional 7″, totaling 26 inches! We have crossed over the 500’’ barrier for the 2016-2017 season!
Snow quality was light and fluffy all morning. Mostly cloudy skies eventually cleared to a beautiful sunny ski day. Alta patrol was on it like always, opening Backside early before the sun warmed the snow. The snow got pretty heavy, but what can we expect for April 9th? Lots of happy skiers all over the mountain were soaking in some of the last days of the winter. Always a little sad to see it winding down, but another great season for the books! One more week till closing folks, so get it while you can.
