Santa really took care of Alta skiers this year! We experienced an unbelievable blizzard on Christmas Eve, and with the sparse crowds it was "free refills" all afternoon - with each lap down Eagle's Nest, Lone Pine, and Westward Ho the snow would fill in, giving skeirs fresh tracks each run. At the peak of the storm it was coming down at 4" an hour!
The icing on the cake was this morning as Christmas day dawned bluebird clear. It was an amazing day with plenty of untracked powder for all. Baldy Shoulder and the Backside both opened for the first time in several days and both were bottomless.
What's up next? Another storm is scheduled to come in the 26-27th - looks like it will be a very happy New Year in Alta!
