Alta only reported 2″ from today’s storm but up high you could easily find areas where there was 3-4″. Considering the drought over the past 3 weeks this measly storm was something to get excited about. Alta’s preexisting smooth slopes enabled the few wet inches to go a long way making for some very entertaining skiing.
Backside’s creamy smooth slopes won top honors today. From the High Notch to the Rosso Gate, fantastic turns lasted right to the end. Thirds and High Boy skied ok but you couldn’t point it like you could on Backside. The forecast is looking decent with more snow predicted through Wednesday![youtube width=”630″ height=”360″]http://youtu.be/hxWP3knKXdE[/youtube]
