It’s official. Alta’s lifts are now open for the 2010-2011 season. While opening day had some of the flattest light imaginable, the snow was still creamy and the coverage was suprisingly good for a roughly 40″ base.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLd3Cp3pEHE[/youtube] [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5of1YHHE_QA[/youtube]
It was obviously not the best day for filming, but it was still a great start to the season. Stay tuned, as there is plenty of powder on the way and it looks like it will be a very white Thanksgiving.
