By the way, It was snowing and hailing all day Saturday. Our day ended as we were trying to make one last run at 4:10 when Lightning Struck, Literally! It was in the middle of a Thunderstorm and there was a big rumble from across the valley. Then a few minutes later a Lightning flash and another thunderclap. This one much closer. We pop out of the trees at the base of Germania and behold the closd sign is up. Alta and I suspect Snowbird also, empty the lifts and shut them down after a close lightning strike and if no more activity after 15 minutes will start up again. Unfortunatly for us, 15 minutes put us past 4:30 and the resort is done for the day.
It was a great week at Alta. Those of you that got a chance to ski Alta's last day probably had an epic day. There was about 6-9" of fresh powder on the top of our vehicle as we made our way down the LCC.
