Waiting to load
Saturday, November 17, 2012
Alta's opening day was Friday, November 16th, the last of the four resorts in the Cottonwood Canyons to open. I had to work but H took the day off and was there, waiting for them to start loading Collins lift. It was well-attended but not busy by any stretch as he never had to wait in a lift line. The lovely 48+ inches we got last weekend had not been supplemented by anything notable during the week, so the base was down to 26". He had temperatures in the 30s, a mix of sun and clouds, flat light and strong, gusty winds around noontime. The email I got from him mid-morning was: "Awesome to be skiing again."
