Day 8: A road trip home.

After getting skunked by this storm at Brian Head, Mrs. Admin and I loaded the truck at 8:15 a.m. to drive back to Salt Lake City. I was on the Collins lift at Alta by 12:15 p.m.

The storm clears out, from the top of Race Course.


Of course, most of the storm's 20" that fell at Alta was already tracked out. It fell wet, and with dropping temperatures surfaces were already stiffening as AmyZ, Telejon, Tom and I did our best to seek out the scraps. Our last two runs on West Rustler (Watson Line to be specific), though, were absolutely money! Skiers were shaving off the new snow as winds smoothed out the sift. It was absolutely effortless skiing, and a great way to cap the weekend.
