First ski of the season

Two posts ago was the "First skin of the season". That's because we then had to skin both up and down. There was a whopping 3 inches on the ground but only on really favored spots...
As you can see from the pictures below, today was a whole different story with over a foot in favored locations. Rather than talk just about it, let me show ya'll (click to enlarge):
First impressions are everything! This is what the Collins base parking
lot looked like this morning!

Alta in full prep mode making darn sure Thanksgiving opening
will be at rendez-vous and right on time.

Looking up Nina's Curve...

It's looking a lot like winter...

What a difference one week can make! I actually broke trail.

...this is the week skiing happened...

...and a close up of Great Baldy Chute, Maybe after
next storm?
