Friday was yet another great day at Snowbasin. Sunny and clear all day with plenty of powder if you know where to look. Cinnabar Lounge is now serving food and refreshments and is a great place to relax at the end of the day. A bowl of chili for lunch was just right.
Snowbasin had what many consider it’s best opening day EVER on Thursday!! Bluebird, Powder, Opening Day.
Skiers and riders of all ages started their Thanksgiving feasts with tons of untracked lines of POWDER. WhooHooo!! It was awesome, everyone was smiling and happy about the bluebird conditions and the fact that over 30% of the mountain is already open. Temperatures were cold at times but that didn’t stop people for enjoying the great conditions. You’ll also notice lots of new park features. There’s still lots of powder up there if you know how to scrounge for it and aren’t afraid to walk a bit. However, keep in mind that it is still early in the season, not only is there brush visible in spots but there are also big rocks that remain uncovered off piste. Please be careful and cautious during early season conditions and try to stay on trail for a while until we get some more storms. Snowmaking continues and temperatures remain cool so there is plenty more snow to ride on. Hope to see you this weekend.
Thursday was an incredible, mostly sunny day after a quick powder storm. The early bird get’s the worm. Endless powder runs off Strawberry today. Photo slideshow has a great sequence of a controlled slide off the Sisters Ridgeline. We also found a small snowmouse living in the snowbank off the Strawberry Gondola top station. He was cute!
Lot’s of smiling faces and zoom zoom racers at Snowbasin today. Beautiful conditions for most of the day. This morning started out at 22deg F and stayed sunny and crisp for most of the day. We explored some adventurous lines at the y- chute, and off the top of Mt. Ogden. Lot’s of hiking and lots of challenges. Groomers were really FAST!!
Scotty, Jodi, Wayne, and Alex put the test on the Icelantic Skis.
The skies opened up and the sun came out for an awesome Valentine’s Day at Snowbasin. Lot’s of powder was to be found off Strawberry and John Paul from the previous day’s 6+ inches. KSL Outdoor Adventures was on location with the crew from Icelantic Skis testing their latest fat powder skis. Lot’s of fun!!
Thursday was a great day up at Snowbasin. Skiers and boarders enjoyed great visibility and quite a few powder stashes if you knew where to look. Lunch at the John Paul Lodge was also an exceptional experience with our guests proclaiming that Snowbasin should have taken first, instead of Deer Valley, in Ski Mags recent recent report. The Tira Misu was over the top!!
Snowbasin was fantastic today. Bright sunshine, good friends, beautiful groomers off Strawberry, Wildcat and Wildflower Bowls, and still some soft stuff off the sides and in the trees. The second gate of Sisters bowl opened for a few fresh lines in the bowl.
Today was a really fun powder day. About a foot of fresh snow over night. Minimal crowd and lots of smiling faces. Spent most of the day off John Paul. South Facing slopes were a little wind blown, but nice patches of powder could be found in the trees. Some strong gusts at the top of JP and flat light on top half of the mountain.
Tomorrow should be excellent with more terrain opening and more snow on the way. Strawberry was closed today and rumor is that the tram will be opening soon.
