Powder Alert for Alyeska ,Killington, Beaver Creek, Loveland
From the top of the Gondola today straight to Storm Peak Express
for a run down Upper Buddy's, thigh deep untouched prime powder,
to Upper and Lower Rainbow, more of the same. Incredible! Then up
4 Points Chair and down the powder bumps of Cyclone, hollering all
the way. How often can you get powder on Tornado Lane? Then up
Storm again to slide across to Upper High Noon and over to Rolex.
Thanks to those responsible for opening Elkhead Chair. I've been
wanting Rolex for days and it was major sweet. Finally back to
mid-mountain to let you know what’s going on. I'd still be out, but
I have a ski tour this morning. I'm out again almost instantly. This
is not to be missed ! A new all-time record total snowfall for November
and a number to be remembered 83 inches! Beats the November 96
record of 78 inches and may be an omen for a repeat of January 97
when it snowed nearly a foot per day for the whole month.
Lifts Operating: 8
Trails Open: 73
