christmas eve

Big difference between skiing Christmas Eve Eve and Christmas Eve.  Once up at Alta, H (I was at work) found sunny skies, cold temperatures and so, so, so many people.  Luckily, ski patrol was able to open more terrain and although the lift lines remained big, he was able to get out of the crowds for skiing.

He went out along the High Traverse several times (still rocky in spots), taking runs in the West Rustler area, and going out all the way and getting into the back side, where High Greeley and Greeley Hill were quite good.

Alf's was a zoo at lunchtime, presaging an equally zoo-y weekend and Christmas week ahead.  But this last storm will move out by the weekend and hopefully ski patrol can keep opening more and more terrain, spreading the skiers out over more acreage.
