Free Basin

Prime Conditions on upper mountain

Morning started with a hint of a wind coming in. I hoped it would come to nothing. My wishes were answered with little to no wind once on the hill. A walk across the plateau to the Wall T-bar got me close, but not quite to first tracks on Main Basin. Groomed to perfection first thing, this was the place to be all day. With the exception of the odd excursion to Spring Run and The Wall, Main Basin held perfect, cold, wind-packed and groomed snow. Ideal for laid out cruisy turns on quick and plentiful laps of the upper mountain, with the added bonus no queues at the lifts.

Ready to drop in

Throughout the day it remained good, not cutting up too much and not melting in the intermittent sunny spells. That light wind had brought with it a chill and a few snow flurries, which hopefully will keep our snow in good nick for the days to come. Here’s hoping. See the short video below.
