For those of you in SLC this week, we got about 8 inches of snow over the past 24 hours, which is just what we needed. This is probably the driest and lightest snow so far this year. The skiing at Alta today was excellent with powder up to knee high in spots. Super skiing off Supreme and fun pockets elsewhere. Backside and the Castle were closed today, so some lucky folks will get a chance to play there later this week. Because of high temperatures last week, on Friday many of the runs were pretty crusty and the moguls downright hard. Of course once you got deeper into the trees, the snow was still soft and the skiing was good. Today there were spots where you got down through the powder and could feel the hard moguls underneath, but that only discourages the pretenders and saves the goods for the rest of us. It was a great day and though there isn't much snow in the forecast until Thursday, I think the skiing this week will be great.
