Alta finally opened the Supreme lift on Friday afternoon - which meant that was where we skied the whole time on Saturday. Even with the area having been open for a couple of hours the day before, Catherine's Area was in great shape - "Super-sweet!" said H, getting face shots in the glades - and we pretty much skied there exclusively. At that point there seemed to be 5 new inches on top of the older, still deep and soft snow; even on my non-powder skis, it was so much fun, skiing in powder again. Because it was so cold, the snow was soft and dry, easy to turn in. Super-sweet for sure.
We skied until a little after 2 p.m. and it was still snowing when we headed back down the canyon. The storm was to continue all through the night and as soon as we got home, I brought my powder skis up from the basement, getting ready for what we expected to be another great day on the hill.
