WHERE THE SKIING WAS BEST TODAY:

– “Kill the Banker” was perfect today if you like dropping pillows and skiing through them wildly with no control

– North Bowl had deeper snow than most anywhere else on the mountain and the boys were hucking big

– 5,000 foot runs skier’s left off the top of Stoke chair down to the mid-station of gondy in untouched snow were silly

Can you feel the deepness the pillers are conveying to you here?

CROWD FACTOR:

– Even bigger line than yesterday to start the day off;  over a 1/4 mile long (but, it goes pretty quick)

– There was a line for the Stoke chair for 2 runs, then there was no lines anywhere the rest of the day

8am line at gondy 1/4 mile+ today

OVERALL:

– Today was the best day we’ve had here since we arrived on January 5th

– Deep snow, pillows, hucks, face-shots, 5,000 foot long fresh powder runs

– “Kill the Banker” and North Bowl shone brightest
