First day of the season at Alta and it didn't suck. Last year at this time the area was closed, so it is hard to complain. I took a number of pictures so you can see the coverage, but there were plenty of areas that had only the barest minimum coverage, if that, but then other places were quite good for this time of the year. Add to that the storm which will come through this next week, and it is a pretty good start to the season. Plus I got to eat one of the Albion Lodge's raspberry bars. Looks like they did some more work on the road up LCC and improved it a bit.
Here are some pics:
View across Mineral Basin at the Snowbird Tram station
Top of Collins lift
Stone Crusher -- the only problem was getting there
Hard to believe High T was open.
On the way to Greeley
Not bad under Wildcat
Some of the best snow on the mountain.
They put safety bars on the Sunnyside lift chairs, so all of you who complain about no safety bars at Alta can't complain anymore. Then again, that was the only lift where I saw them and I never saw one used, so maybe they're just for show
Great start to the season, but I'm glad I had my rock skis.
