I woke up this morning to the sound of the snow plow on the road.  This is always a good sign that something has fallen from the sky....in a good way.  A great way.  It was chilly but BEAUTIFUL out there today with about 3" of new snow on the ground.  I don't think it will be cold for long but the temperature made way for a soft coating on the slopes this morning. 

 

The top of the gondola was pretty socked in at 8:15 Am when I headed out to play but that did not last long.  The sun worked it out and is making its way across the valley.  I am not kidding, like a knife cutting into a warm loaf of bread.  That is what each turn felt like coming down Heavenly Daze.  And did I say how gorgeous it is out there, well I will say it again, it is all white, frosty and sparkly.  Maybe it is the Christmas season or just that Monday morning peace but it is a great time of the week to make some turns. 

 

You will need to check your speed a little when you hit Vogue.  The top of Sitz is closed as well as a portion of Vogue for some race training.  This run is not as soft as the Daze and is a great place to practice using your edges.  I highly advise veering to the right on Preview.  It was groomed early and before the snow hit.   Super soft turns and a nice dusting of powder, that's right powder.  A really fun was to end my morning.

 

Have a great day out there.
