Short trip to A-Basin with my son today. Lot of fun, moderate crowds for a Friday.
A bit warm, as his picture in sweatshirt and no gloves shows, but generally good conditions for this time of year.
Today they opened the Norway lift, with the Lenawee Face and Dercum's gulch open. Good coverage on both of those, a mix of man-made and natural. As can be seen from the shots, good coverage already forming along the upper runs, even the short runs down from Cornice Run to Dercum's gulch. Lower runs (3) are open, a little spotty over on the one green run.
The new express lift is great, very fast compared to last year...of course Norway as slow as ever. The chairs come in a little low on the Black Mountain express, they edge hits you pretty low on your calves.
Now with Keystone opening today and Breck next weekend more options for those of us w/Epic/CO/Summit passes.
