Little Cottonwood Canyon has been going off the last 2 days! The atmosphere is always rich with excitement and powder fever when the weatherman is wrong in a good way. Skiers and boarders alike woke up to 13 inches of fresh instead of the 2-4 they were expecting Thursday morning. That day I skied with the one and only Kenjiro Matsuo and Altabird’s Matthew Wolfe. It continued to snow all day and by closing we had picked up about 5 more inches. Friday took me to Alta with an unexpected several more inches. The lift lines were non existent and I spent the day skiing with Panda Poles own TanSnowMan and Andrew B.
Conditions tomorrow should be excellent with another few inches on the way. With 23 inches so far with this storm, we are no longer eligible for the “Worst Winter on Record” award.
