It's cold up here at the top
Because the storm had come in on Thursday, everything was all tracked out and bumped up. The snow seemed to be in pretty good shape though. We did several runs on the Sugarloaf chair before moving over to Supreme. I was wearing my Rossignols because of the new snow: my legs had felt pretty strong over the last few weeks but that was because we were cruising groomers; once we got off-piste into the chunky powder, my skis kicked my butt. Catherine's Area was super-fun, soft and deep. We paused to talk to a group of folks out for a snowshoe with the Wasatch Mountain Club - they were hoping to have a picnic on Catherine's Ridge but it started snowing around noon, so they may not have lingered over their sandwiches.

After lunch, we did a run down Chartreuse Nose/Chartreuse Slot where the bumps were huge and pretty much invisible with the poor visibility. Needless to say, I did a lot of flailing around and H had to wait for me a lot. We did a run through the cabins to give my legs a break and then ventured into Cecret Saddle for the first time all season. Again, I struggled with the visibility - this was turning out to not be my best day ever. And yet, new snow!
We finished with several runs off the front side and then my legs had had enough. It was still snowing as we drove down canyon - we would end up with another couple of inches - which always bodes well for the next day's skiing.
