Still Skiing

I've had an unused day of skiing at AltaBird thanks to my Mountain Collective Pass and decided I'd use it today.  With a fresh coat of the white stuff, the mountains were quite stunning this morning.

Conditions were quite good for May 20th.  Carveable up high, some refrozen spring snow down low.  Stuff softening up depending on aspect as the day went along.

Given that I hadn't ridden lifts in a month, we racked up vertical on the groomers and called it good at noon.  I like the 8 am open.  That's really nice this time of year for early risers like myself.

Unfortunately, the snow under the fresh coat looks pretty dirty.  In a couple of days, we'll be skiing snirt instead of snow.
