Calm wind, light wind, snow flurries and 22* at 10am
Great day on the hill today! Lots of Basin Staff out there too as today was the first Ski Bum Race- aka World Cup Wednesday. Some excellent snow and as usual some terrain skied better than other. Things were a bit hard and slick for my liking up in the North Ridge and Lower East fall; which didn’t warrant a repeat. I was with some friends who wanted to do a Snowdon run, which had excellent snow. Just not my particular first choice when I only have a 90 minutes to play. Nonetheless, the snow was great! Soft groomers on Mouse Run, Mouse Trap and Lower Bunny.
I headed over to Superstar for the last two runs of the day which had the best snow. My buddy’s that I was riding with didn’t want to deal with the snowguns on L Superstar and the lift, but it was worth it as there was some really nice snow under those guns.
On the horizon, we have a quick system moving through tonight that’s forecasted to drop 2-4 by morning and all eyes are peeled for this weekends event. Fingers crossed and snow dances have commenced!!
Sorry for the absence of pics today, we were moving around the hill pretty quickly this morning and didn’t stop for pics.
