    It snowed heavily until just after 8 this morning. That made for over a foot from the storm. The skiing everywhere was awesome. The Spine was effortless. Pure beauty. You could not find a ripple or a bump on Slalom Slope. I found a real treat skiing Janitors Only. Very steep and deep.

    At 8 AM I slipped out intending to ski two quick runs. I had a little trouble heading back inside. About 11 AM, when I got tired and hungry, I finally grabbed a seat, a latte and some antipasta at Il Rifugio. Delicious. It was a very nice way to spend the morning.

    5 more inches today. That makes 11 inches for the storm. It is still snowing right now. There is good snow snow forecast for tonight and tomorrow. The skiing Friday was outstanding and just keeps getting better.

    For those who like skiing powder, we are in a very good cycle. This morning we reported 6 inches of new snow.  Additional snowfall is expected this evening and there is actually snow in the forecast each day until Tuesday. Overall, our coverage is very good and, prior to this storm, the wind had filled in many troughs between moguls making a flat, buffed surface. Today's snow on top of that planar surface is delivering ideal conditions...................with more snow coming.

    Beaver Bowl is really buffed, especially the east side. I had a beautiful cruise down there leading to one of our new decks. There were no moguls. It was flat and sweet with a beautifully carve-able surface. Below the deck there are some great rolls leading into tree skiing and ultimately out to Lower Davis. Nothing, but pure, playful fun. Fantastic skiing.

    We are having this kind of day (see picture below). The Face, The Spine and Slalom Slope are about as buffed as they get. The north half of Slalom was absolutely perfect. I couldn't wipe the smile from my face after skiing it.

    We had another fun Beacon Bowl. As advertised, there were competitions and dog clinics and vendors and auctions and all kinds of fun. Tony  C auctioned off an old Pallavicini sign. All proceeds went to the Avalanche Center.

    Join us for the Beacon Bowl this Saturday. With activities going all day long, check out the beacon competition, avalanche dog demonstration, vendor village in Mountain Goat Plaza and one of the best apres ski parties of the season.

    Tony C will be the Master of Ceremonies at the party and will be leading the live auction (that is a good laugh). There will be pizza, beer, raffles and a silent auction. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE COLORADO AVALANCHE INFORMATION CENTER. This is a day of fun and learning with a great party.......all for a good cause.

    Yesterday wasn't a snow day, but the wind was perfect. The place was buffed. From The Spine to The Face and from North Glade to Slalom Slope, the snow was smooth and the texture perfect. These are the conditions Basin skiers cherish. Easy and fun, this is a function of our aspect and elevation. Our above timberline location is ideal for creating this experience.
