Snowbasin Report #5 – Heavy Powder Monday. Oh Yeah
Awesome and challenging powder day for those who played hooky on this powder Monday and came up for some incredible skiing at Snowbasin. Early morning snowfall was heavy at times starting the day with 3-6″ coverage over previous pack. At the top of the mountain visibility was very limited but heavier patches of untracked powder could easily be found, with some shots up to a foot deep. Later in the afternoon clearing began about mid mountain, nice runs off of Dan’s, Griz, Philpot and Wildcat. Lower aspects towards the end were a bit heavier and set up. Today was wet, foggy, a thigh burner and absolutely awesome skiing and boarding. Fun turns with Michael, Elizabeth, Steve, Heidi and Lance.
On a side note, the full menu at the lounge at Earl’s is available. At the end of the day we enjoyed my #1 favorite, the smoked trout and salmon plate and a nice pale ale to finish the day.
