Wearing green for half price tickets & thanking the luck of the Irish for the storm that allowed this magic place to re-open. Cold morning with bluebird skies - started a facemask day but warmed up enough for quality deck time after lunch. Packed powder base - the ungroomed runs with soft bumps and the occasional thin spot. Can't remember the last time I skied bumps in the sunshine on black, blue and green runs...

Lower Antelope - Soft packed powder bumps

Aside from myself, none of the group had ever skied here before. Happy to say that the only complaint was that we were here on our 5th day of skiing and that it would have been easier with fresh thighs. Great day & great place to end a fantastic week of skiing.

Finally - quality family deck time!
