Clear Skies and Clean Air!

By , January 29, 2017 7:03 PM

Another gorgeous day up here at Alta! High temps of 33 and not a cloud in the sky. Whether you were at Alta Java grabbing a coffee, drinking a beer on top of Baldy or shredding the pow that was left from this week’s storm, it was great to be out of inversion and in the mountains. Baldy Chutes opened and rumor has it, a local hiked a keg for a mountaintop celebration. Devil’s Castle opened just after one, which was a little wind affected, but still skied smooth and creamy in parts. The Apron looked to be skiing soft and groomers were ripping. Fun to be had all around!

Over 160 inches of snow fell in January and we don’t want to see it go, but the forecast has another storm rolling in on Friday February 3rd.  Let’s hope February gives us the goods.

 

 

Alta Powder Gone Wrong

By , December 3, 2013 5:47 PM

There wasn’t much open today at Alta but that didn’t matter. With an empty parking lot and 13″ of fresh pow you could find good skiing everywhere. The High-T and Baldy Shoulder remained closed all day but shots off of Tower 10 provided the goods lap after lap, or so I was told. Ended most of my season on my first lap nailing a stump off of a small cat track at the bottom of High Boy. Broke both my tibia and fibula so I will be handing the filming torch over to my brother Mike. Stay tuned for more updates from his eyes as the season progresses. We’ll see you all in February or March!
