Natural snow. More, please!
We didn't really have a plan for our hike but we did have a map, so we figured we were okay. The trails were mostly clear of snow except on the north-facing, shady slopes; some spots in the trees were muddy but out of the woods everything was nice and dry. The weather was pleasant - partly cloudy and warm - and we saw just a couple of MTBers finishing up their rides. We had the place to ourselves.
Right here, that's the spot

After our hike we decided to stop by the Wasatch Pub to see if they had any of the new Alta 75th Anniversary Ale. They didn't but we had a couple beers anyway - it would have been rude to leave without drinking any.
