Finally, the new season has started. Early snow was pretty good, but I decided to wait for more base.
Finally we got another storm with about 8″ of snow. I got to Teton Pass at 6:45 and the parking lot was 2/3 full. Not a good sign for the coming season. I read in the New York Times that there’s a backcountry ski boom due to Covid.
Even though there was new snow, I could see that all the main bowls were frozen moguls and tracks with 8″ of snow on top.
Olympia must have blown in because there was very little evidence of bumps or tracks on the top 2/3, but near the bottom, there were frozen bumps and tracks.
Overall, a pretty good day.
