The big story of the day is the opening of Alta’s High Traverse. All areas from Gunsight to High Boy from the top are now open for business. Rocks are everywhere on skier’s left Thirds so stay to Gunsight-side for less hazardous skiing. Lines are starting to fill in all over the mountain, however rocks and fallen trees can still be found just about anywhere. The High-T itself is pretty rocky but there are several passable routes. Snow that hasn’t seen a track is soft and fluffy. Tracked snow has definitely reached the “packed powder” stage but no worries a new storm is on our doorstep for Saturday.
A big thank you to Mike Fillnow for the footage and report!
