Thread Starter 
Monday the 5th of February was a great day of skiing, but we had corn snow and its Feburary. Thats not really suppose happen. Coverage is getting thin in areas especially any South west facing aspects(think Lupine Loop area of Mineral Basin) but the snow that was there was corned up in mineral and was skiing pretty dang good.

So some pictures
My best impression of Tyrone Shoelaces

Looking Down canyon from Hidden Peak

This Part of mineral was skiing pretty good

This part not so good

Hey BW,

You should come back east for a quick trip. The WV Alps have gotten 70" of snow in less than 30 days and it's snowing right now!

Although, the corn looks like fun.

True that. It's all going to be shiit when the cold weather returns. Going to need about a 18"+ dump after the freeze for it to resemble a typical February in Utah again.

I hope that comes soon because I'll be at Snowbasin in 13 days. My pessimistic prediction: A hard freeze followed by 12 inches over the next 2 weeks accompanied by howling winds to blow it all right back down to a FRGR base with some good stashes to be found amongst the rocks and trees.

Please tell me how freakin' wrong I am. :

Bushwackin, Great pictures, 3rd picture down on your second post: great looking turn, shooting for a magazine cover? I don't know why you say one part doesn't look so good. I think having to turn around those snirt spots make the skiing interesting. Than again I do ski at MRG quite a bit. Love the dropping in photos, get that left hand up though. Your really skiing strong.

It's spelled skies. (Like the plural of ski.)
