I forgot to post the pic that shows the top of the ridge.

I really should spend some time with my originals in p-shop and stitch them together better.

At the risk of some ridicule because I know it's not the popular choice with the in-crowd here, I'll offer that I LOVE going fast. So anytime NASTAR is set up, the conditions are perfect for me.
(That's not me - I was the photographer.)

No ridicule here on A-Basin’s Zuma side, some perfect conditions for a little eye water and face burn this day. Wax and repeat as necessary.

Great photos, everybody.

Here's one of me in what I consider to be perfect conditions. This one was taken on a Sunday morning in "Church". Anybody know where that is?



This one's about as perfect as I think conditions ever get. A huge, open bowl of flawless spring corn in Grand Teton National Park:



And I always love this one because it was far more perfect than it looks in the photo. This is skiing through the old debris of a wet-snow slide above Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood Canyon:





That's the great thing about skiing. "Perfect" has a lot of definitions. If the day is one you'll happily remember forever, it's pretty darn perfect.

After doing some research on here to verify, my worst fear was confirmed.

Your local hill will be my local hill this year. They don't have that posted in enough places!! I wouldn't have bought a pass and driven further to one of the even smaller local hills.

That is pure crap, does anyone ever complain? Let us enjoy what lil pow we get!!!

For all of the things they do wrong, I absolutely love Song's grooming policy.
1/2 the trail is always (ok usually) groomed, the other half is left alone. They do this across the whole mountain. Works good for powder junkies on some days, crud junkies most days and bump skiers a few of the trails. Leaving the other half groomed keeps the elderly folks happy and lets everyone enjoy the same trail.

I'm sure this saves a ton of $$ on diesel and helps out the environment a tiny bit too.

Early last season when we got a few good dumps they would leave about 1/2 the trails completely ungroomed until the day pass people started coming for the season.

How are the two glades at Greek? It sounds like thats where I'll be most of the time!!

With superb light, temp and new snow a particular run was pushing the needle well to the right on the perfect conditions scale..
