Windy and gray at A-Basin

Shocking, I know. Went up skiing with Nate today despite a near-total lack of snow in the past month. I didn’t mind riding a chair, as I had several weeks of earning my turns. We made it up in time to catch the first chair. I’ve been there when the chairs start spinning countless times, but I’ve never actually been on the first one to go.

As is to be expected when it hasn’t snowed substantially for a month, conditions were less than ideal (though not terrible). Due to the wind, Zuma didn’t open until around noon. A couple quick laps through there were plenty as the whole thing had baked in the sun for weeks and it was hard as a rock.

The snow was far better on the front side, particularly off to the west end of Pali.


Until next time…
