I had a previous commitment to attend my friends wedding on Saturday. Turns out it was perfect weather to get married as well as head for the hills. I had a great night, but this did mean a slow start to Sunday, so it was just an afternoon for me. The hill was pretty well frozen in the morning, so my late arrival would have the added benefit of having slightly, only slightly softer snow.
Main Basin was once again the place to be, but despite the blazing sunshine and no fresh snow for a while, the top and bottom of the hill are all still connected. Mugs Alley gave some fast spring snow access to the Wall T-bar or the Cliffhanger chair when the inevitable leg burn started to be felt.
Although its getting narrower, the Plateau run still gives plenty of access up and down or was a good option for an extended top to bottom run.
I didn’t head over to Spring Run or Flypaper. The tops of both this runs had glistening ice capping them, so I didn’t waste my time hiking across the summit.
As I made my way down at the end of the day I could see the groomer
