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.

 

 

Deepest Day Of The Year!

By , January 31, 2013 12:57 AM

The past two days have been nothing short of phenomenal. Yesterday (Tues) was just one of those deep powder days that sticks in your mind for months…if not years. There was deep Deep DEEP snow, especially on west-facing Keyhole, and with minimal crowds. Not much terrain opened beyond the High T but with snow continuing to fall throughout the day it didn’t matter. Wednesday greeted us with 5 fresh inches and counting, but the new snow was a bit thicker and created an upside-down effect in spots. Luckily the winds picked up, buffing and refilling Alta’s slopes all day. It’s looking like our epic pow storm is coming to an end tomorrow but nothing beats bluebird skies and 27″ of fluff! Get some!
