An overnight storm brings a foot of new snow plus another 10” during the day. From the steeps and drops on Olympic Lady, to the ripping glades of Upper Mountain, the pow was amazing.

Today was a fantastic day to snowboard, and I’m eagerly awaiting this weekend’s storm to come and help refresh things. With how epic this season has been, I’m looking forward to my next trip back up to get my next pow fix in.
The sun was out, and the winds were mellow, making for some fun variable conditions all around the mountain today at Alpine. From the slushy off-piste riding on Scott to the fast groomers and windbuff on Summit, to the features in the Tiegle Park, the conditions were awesome today.
Today’s wind and sun offered a variety of conditions around the mountain. At the base, temps and winds were mild. At the top, temps were cold and winds howling at +50 mph. When the east wind is here, it’s time to find the zones with wind-transported snow. It was also time to check the newly built terrain park.
The tail end of the storm brought a sunny powder day to Alpine, making for magnificent turns all day.
